Dr. Budwig’s Quark-Flaxoil Linomel Breakfast Muesli Recipe

Standard ingredients:

  • 3 tblsp flaxseed oil
  • 2 to 3 tblsp raw milk
  • 100 gr (6 tblsp) quark or cottage cheese
  • 2 tblsp Linomel (or 4 tblsp freshly ground flaxseeds)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • fruits and fruit juices
  • nuts (except peanuts)
  • natural flavours

Put 2 tblsp of Linomel (or 4 tblsp freshly ground flaxseeds) in a small bowl. Cover with raw fruit according to season. Prepare the quark-flax oil mix in the following manner:

Put flax oil, milk and honey into the blender, mix and gradually add the quark or cottage cheese in small portions. Blend until you have a smooth and well homogenised mix. No oil must be visible. Add more milk if necessary. Change the flavour every day by adding nuts, vanilla, cinnamon, various fruits such as banana, berries, cocoa, grated coconut, fruit juices (these must be added last). Use grated apple and dried fruit such as raisins and dried apricots soaked in fruit juice in winter.

Cover the flaxseed and raw fruit layers with the flax oil/quark (cottage cheese) mix and optionally garnish with fruits and nuts.


1 Linomel is a proprietary blend of ground flaxseeds, honey and some milk powder available in German Reformhäuser. Dr. Budwig formulated it to offer a readily available source of high-quality ground flaxseeds protected against oxidation. Freshly ground flaxseeds can be substituted for Linomel but must be eaten within ten minutes or they will oxidize (go rancid) and thus become unhealthful. When substituting with freshly ground flaxseeds, use double the amount specified for Linomel.
