MUESLI - MAKE YOUR OWN STYLE




MUESLI is one of those great things that if you make your own you can decide just what kind of mood you are in and make it according to your taste. If you don't like nuts or a particular nut - leave it out. If you really LOVE dried mango add double the amount! :) See its fun when you make it how you want it instead of buying the shop version and then picking out the annoying parts you don't like. Also the shop bought version can be expensive for the good stuff! And the cheap stuff tends to lack in taste or nice ingredients. Of course as always I believe in buying the best quality ingredients you can afford. And go for organic if you can... it will be healthier and better for you.

Here is the really simple MAKE-YOUR-OWN muesli.

INGREDIENTS (feel free to swop out ingredients for what you like)
500g - 1kg rolled oats (organic if possible)
2 - 5 tablespoons coconut oil
2 - 5 tablespoons Honey ( as RAW and as pure as you can get)
Sunflower seeds
Sesame seeds
OPTIONAL:  (Raisins, Golden Saltanas, Dried Mango,Dried Pineapple, Dried Apple, Dried Apricots, Dried Pears etc...)
Almonds or nuts of choice

METHOD:

MIX ALL THE ABOVE TOGETHER AND BAKE/GRILL UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN. STIR OFTEN AND WATCH IT DOESN'T BURN. THEN ADD:


Almonds or other nuts you like

Dried fruit of choice- (Raisins, Golden Saltanas, Dried Mango,Dried Pineapple, Dried Apple, Dried Apricots, Dried Pears etc...)


Chop up your dried fruit into small bite sized pieces and stir into the honey toasted oats.
Let cool and then pour into a air tight jar.
Enjoy with a variety of options:
milk
yoghurt
a spoon of honey
coconut milk
sliced banana
fresh fruit



Makes an excellent gift - label and tie some pretty ribbon round the jar.
