I love muesli but get bored real easy with the standard store bought ones. The hidden sugars and salts are a drag too. When I make my own I get to put in my fave fruits, nuts & seeds and boost it with the superfoods that make the most sense to me individually.
Here is my current recipe. Show me your success stories :)
110gr rolled oats
70gr rye flakes
70gr barley flakes
110gr millet flakes (great protein content!)
20gr bran or wheat bran
50 gr flaked almonds
25gr mixed seeds (pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, poppy)
50gr ground flaxseed & gouge berries
50gr dried cranberries (check the sugar content!)
Mix the base ingredients and toast in a medium oven for 10 minutes.
Chop the cashews & pecans a little, and mix with the other nuts - toast as well.
Keep an eye on the base and nuts so they don’t catch!
When out of the oven and cool mix all ingredients in a big bowl - base, nuts, superfoods and fruit.
Store in an airtight container and don’t let it hang around. The fats in the nuts and seeds will go rancid after a while - so eat up!
This is such a simple recipe and you can add your favourite bits and bobs - swap out the dry fruits for others such as mangos, pineapple, ginger but watch the sugar content in those ones!
