Pecan & Almond Muesli with Seeds

Making your own Muesli is a great way to control your sugar consumption, plus being heavy handed with our favourite ingredients usually means that home-made muesli tastes better than store-bought equivalents. Try our tasty crunchy muesli for a delicious way to start your day. 

TIP: You can swap the oats out and substitute them with buckwheat or puffed quinoa!

 

 

Pecan & Almond Muesli with Seeds

Ingredients

2 cups oats 

1 tsp of cinammon

1/2 tsp of nutmeg

1 tsp of vanilla extract or 1/2tsp of vanilla seeds

1/3 cup coconut chips 

handful of crushed pecans

handful of slivered almonds

handful of pumpkin seeds

1/3 or 200g cup of butter (or coconut oil)

1/2 cup of brown sugar or table honey

1tsp of salt

dragonfruit, banana, kiwi or your choice of fruit to garnish

 

Directions

  1. Preheat your over to Fan 150°C degrees, or Bake to 170°C. Do not use the grill setting or you'll burn your nuts! 
  2. Pour all of your dry ingredients including nuts and seeds into a large mixing bowl. 
  3. Heat your butter or oil until warm (not bubbling!)
  4. Add your sugar/honey and spices to the fat and stir through until smooth. If you're using butter you can heat it to the point of foaminess. 
  5. Turn off the heat and pour the liquid over your dry mix. 
  6. Mix well with a big wooden spoon making sure that all your dry elements are equally coated. 
  7. Spoon the mixture onto one or two oven trays so that your muesli is as thinly spread as possible. 
  8. Cook for a total of about 30m or until golden, and use a spatula to turn over areas of your mixture every 10 minutes or so. 
  9. Once cooked allow the muesli to cool out on the counter - do not store it while it's hot. 
  10. Serve up on yogurt, with milk or on chia pudding with your choice of fresh fruits. 
  11. Store in an airtight container until it's all gone (which wont take long!)
