This awesomuesli muesli blend is fantastic in muesli cookies. Or you can add some milk for breakfast. Sprinkle it over ice cream for dessert. Or throw a handful into a smoothie. It’s a very versatile muesli blend, let me tell you!
The recipe is very ‘free and easy’, so put in more of what you love and less of what you don’t. I’ve got a mix of seeds, but you might like to feature only one kind.
I’m also not a massive fan of dried fruit, so this recipe is quite light on in that department. Other dried fruits you might like to add include apple, mango and pear.
Finally, of course you can add some brazil, almond or pecans to this mix, if nut-free isn’t needed. I tend to make it without nuts so I can make muesli cookies for the lunchboxes. I add a handful of almonds to the mix when I have it for breakfast.
Awesomuesli muesli blend
Combine 4 handfuls of rolled oats, a handful of oat bran sticks, a little grab of pepitas, a little grab of sunflower seeds, a little grab of shaved coconut, a little grab of chia seeds, a handful of diced dried papaya, a handful of diced dried pineapple, a handful of diced dried apricots, a little grab of chopped banana chips and one of plump sultanas. Add a pinch of cinnamon and mix the lot. Ooh la la!
You can oven-roast the seeds and oats prior to mixing, if you like. Just spread evenly over a lined baking tray and bake at 200ºC for about 5 mins. You can also pan roast in a hot frying pan – remember to shuffle the mix regularly to prevent if from catching.
Serve with milk and fresh figs for a great start to the day.
