Morning Munchies


Light Summer Muesli

I saw a demo of a muesli recipe last Tuesday while having a spot of knitting on the “Good Morning” show on TV1. The homemade muesli recipe was from a new book called “Fit Food Fast” and was called “Light Summer Muesli”. Here is the link on the Good Morning website to the muesli recipe pluas a yummy Kumara and Smoked Chicken recipe: Fit Food Fast.

You can use any of your favourite dried fruits in this recipe. Why not try raisins, sultanas, dried pineapple or dried papaya?

1) Preheat oven to 180�C.
2) Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix oil into these ingredients until well coated.
3) Spread mix over a baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
4) Allow to cool before adding dried fruit and mix well. Store in an airtight container.

I made it yesterday and it is yummy! It is great to have something like this that I can make, I know what is in it and I bet it is cheaper than the flash packaged supermarket ones. The ingrediants are: rolled oats, coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sunflower oil and then fruit. I added dried cranberries and chopped dried apricot. I also added in a portion of LSA (linseed, sunflower and almond mix).

    Looks yummy 🙂 I can’t eat nuts so if I ever want muesli or granola or anything like that I have to make it myself to be sure it’s safe for me to eat, so thanks for this idea for a new combination 🙂
