I don’t want to offend anyone, but people who buy muesli are CRAZY. Especially the expensive stuff that pushes up its prices for the fancy box / bag. I don’t much like dried fruit in my muesli either – so if faced with some packed full of raisins, I’d rather have a piece of toast. However, your own muesli is custom-made with a combination of your favourite nuts / seeds / dried fruit / whatever you fancy. Plus, it only takes about 20 minutes in the oven to make a big batch that will last for ages. For this one I added some desiccated coconut.
Here’s how. Preheat the oven to 170c (without fan). In a large roasting tray, place a few handfuls of oats, two handfuls desiccated coconut and then about 150g nuts and seeds. I used pistachios, almonds, hazelnuts and golden linseed.
Place in the oven for 15-20 until nicely toasted, shake around and turn once during cooking. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. If you want to add some dried fruit, now’s the time.
I’m not much of a milk fan, so I like to scatter it over some yoghurt with a little agave nectar or honey or if it’s a really special day a little maple syrup. Yum.
