Particle Muesli

This recipe is for my lovely mum, Trish x

I’ve simplified the recipe so you can easily make it at home in around 10-15mins.

It is a perfect breakfast option if you’re watching your weight, looking for a health boost or even just a little time poor.  It’s a big batch so it should last you 2-4 weeks. Try not to over eat it though; too many nuts can cause an upset tummy.

 

Ingredients

2 cups of cashews
2 cups of walnuts
2 cups of almonds
2 cups of shredded coconut
1 cup of Pumpkin seeds
½ cup of sunflower seeds
¼ cups of flaxseeds
¼ cups chia seeds
¼ cup of sesame seeds
2 cups of rice or quinoa puffs
1 tbsp. Alba Cinnamon
1 cup of dehydrated fruits – Apricots, cranberries figs, dates, cherries or blueberries
Zest of 1 lemon and 1 orange
100g melted coconut oil
½ cup of maple syrup, honey, agave or coconut blossom sugar.
1 tbsp. real vanilla extract
¼ tsp. sea salt flakes

 

    Method

    1. Pre heat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius
    2. Line 2 large oven trays with baking paper.
    3. Roughly chop the nuts; I like to use a knife for this part. It takes a bit longer than a food processor but the final product it waaay better!
    4. In a large bowl (the bigger the better) add all of the dry ingredients.
    5. Gently melt the coconut oil in a saucepan remembering to not overheat the oil.
    6. Add into the oil your choice of sweetener and vanilla syrup; whisk to combine.
    7. Pour the wet mix into the dry mix and combine really well so that all of the dry ingredients are coated with the yummy sweet coconut oil.
    8. Pour the muesli onto the oven tray and place in the hot oven.
    9. Cook for 5-10mins – keep a good eye on the muesli, if the edges look like they are starting to burn take it out early.
    10. Stir the muesli and return to the oven for a further 5-8 minutes.
    11. Stir and repeat this step if your oven is a little slow, you want the nuts to be nice and brown.
    12. Let the muesli cool completely before to move it into a storage container.
    13. Serve with your choice of fresh fruit, coconut yogurt, milk or what ever you fancy. I like to eat it on its own as a snack while I’m on the go.
