Home-made muesli

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and since I’ve been taking more care of what I eat and watching my sugar in-take I wanted to have a go at making my own muesli, in the healthiest possible way. This weekend I put aside some time, purchased all the right ingredients and away I went, it was actually really simple to make.

You can swap in and out various ingredients of what you enjoy but below is my mix so far.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped pecan nuts
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a large, baking dish with baking paper.
  2. Combine honey, sugar and oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, for 3-5 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Be careful not to boil the mixture to avoid the sugar from crystallizing.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour over warm honey mixture. Mix well to combine.
  4. Spread mixture evenly over base of dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes, mixing every 10 minutes or until golden and toasted. Set aside to cool completely (muesli will form crisp clusters on cooling).
  5. Add an extra 2 tablespoons of coconut flakes for added flavour.
  6. Crumble muesli into an airtight container until ready to serve.

Enjoy with Greek yoghurt with fresh berries.
