Day 13: Raw muesli (updated)

IMG_4102

I’ve always wanted to try to make my own muesli.  Trying to find a cereal or muesli that doesn’t contain a high level of salt and added sugar, well I’ve never found one.  As I find yoghurt and muesli the perfect breakfast I’ve had this at the back of my mind for years.

The original recipe was very tasty but over time I’ve updated it a bit.

Ingredients (*approx)

  • 300g wholegrain rolled oats
  • 100g pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 100g sunflower seed
  • 100g Linseed (flaxseed)
  • 100g Chia seeds
  • 40g psyllium husk
  • 100g almonds lightly crushed,
  • 100g hazelnuts, lightly crushed
  • 1 teaspoons of cinnamon per bowl
  • Sprinkled with fresh raspberries and blueberries

You can pick pretty much any nuts you like if you prefer another type.  Also, if you have a bit of a sweet-tooth you may want to add some sun-dried currants and/or blueberries.

Almost every recipe I came across had the muesli roasted with oil, honey and other sweet stuff but this is “raw muesli” and I can’t say I missed it being roasted.

The result is extremely tasty, honestly the best muesli I’ve ever had.  I’ve eat it every day since June – I will never buy muesli again.  It’s a bonus that vanilla yoghurt and cinnamon makes it taste a bit like dessert, it’s very filling and it is really really good for you.
