The Loving Cook: Homemade Toasted Muesli

Most health nuts like me have their own muesli or granola recipe. This is mine. I like to eat regularly throughout the day to keep my metabolism working well, and trust me I am not a happy lady when I get hangry (angry-hungry). Rest assured when I tell you that this recipe really will give you energy and a feeling of fullness without it being high in sugar and fats. It’s crunchy, which is crucial, and I use this muesli mix for a number of recipes or just snack on it when I need some energy throughout the day.

The Loving Cook: Homemade Toasted Muesli

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup bran flakes
  • 1 cup puffed brown rice
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ cup roughly chopped almonds
  • 3 heaped tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons honey or rice malt syrup
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • ½ cup craisins (dried cranberries)

Cooking steps: Toasted Muesli

  1. Preheat oven to 180c.
  2. Heat the coconut oil and honey or rice malt syrup for 30 seconds in the microwave so it becomes syrupy.
  3. In a very large bowl mix all of the ingredients together including the syrupy mixture. Ensure that all of the dry ingredients have been moistened by the syrup.
  4. Place the muesli mix on a lined baking tray. Do this in 2-3 batches so the muesli can toast evenly.
  5. Bake for about 10-15 minutes until lightly toasted and then give the muesli a good stir through and bake for a further 10 minutes or until golden.
  6. Once the muesli is toasted remove from the oven and let it cool and it will become even crunchier.

Oats

Oats are a low calorie and low GI food that releases energy into your body at a steady rate, which leaves you feeling fuller for longer. They are packed with vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, manganese, potassium, magnesium and much more. Not only are they a cheap ingredient, but because they are high in fibre oats can also help keep your cholesterol levels low and aide in healthy digestion.

* You can store this muesli in an airtight container for up to 2-3 weeks. For serving suggestions and more tips, view recipe at The Loving Cook.com.au.
