i made this recipe up after much annoyance at the cost of organic muesli
you see i love to eat organic where possible but it can become a pricey affair when you buy it and two days later it's gone! those teeny tiny health sized packets...
so my tip buy your ingredients in bulk and whip this recipe up in 10 minutes.
|giant sized jar of yum|
* 2 cups rolled oats
* 2 cups multi puffs (buckwheat/millet/brown rice/spelt)
* 1 cup fruit juice sweetened corn flakes
* 1/2 cup pepitas
* 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
* 1 cup rice bran
* 1/2 cup macadamias chopped roughly
* 1/2 cup walnuts chopped rougly
* 1/2 cup sultanas
* 1/4 cup chia seeds
* 1/2 cup agave nectar
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
all ingredients were organic however they don't have to be
* put all of the dry igredients (minus the sultanas) in a big bowl and stir to combine
* gently heat the agave nectar and vanilla on low heat so it is nice an easy to pour
* once the liquid mixture has cooled slightly add it to your dry ingredients and mix well.
* divide the muesli between two non-stick baking trays and cook in a moderate oven (180 deg)
* after 10 minutes take the muesli out and add to it the sultanas, gently mixing it on the tray
(dry fruit like sultanas will burn if you add them in at the start so best to do it half way through cooking time)
* cook for a further 10 minutes and cool on trays before storing your muesli in an air-tight jar or container

|my brekky the very next morning! |
pineapple, yoghurt and a little milk completed it just fine..
measurements of the dry ingredients do not have to be exact for this recipe to work. muesli really is a 'put what you like in affair' so feel free to be creative and tailor to your own tastes - i would add dates next time simply because i love them
best thing now is i have all the ingredients ready to go after this lot is gobbled up. Did i mention it makes a great hands in the jar healthy snack too!
i would love to know if anyone out there makes this and what you thought..?
