Mr 12 was whining there was nothing for breakfast and we were out of cereal.
So I spent two minutes assembling this muesli.
Most store bought cereals and muesli’s are highly processed and full of sugar. They’re not an ideal breakfast and some are around 30% added sugar – comparable to milk chocolate! (not mentioning any cereals in particular… Nutrigrain)!😫😱😳😂
To make raw muesli simply throw together any combination of :
Oats, Puffed rice, millet, amaranth, buckwheat groats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, coconut. Mix.
✔️ easy to make and super quick
✔️ cheap! This muesli cost about $15 for around 4 to 5 kgs of muesli (¼ of the price of store bought cereals)
✔️ no added sugar or if you toast it in honey and coconut oil, you can control the amount of added sweetness
✔️ delicious! and you can control what goes in it to suit your tastes and food needs
In a pot melt:
100 grams of butter or coconut oil
⅓ cup of honey
2 tsps of cinnamon
in a large roasting pan put your choice of:
Puffed rice, millet, spelt, kamut, buckwheat, oats etc
Nuts, seeds, coconut
Total amounts around 800 to 1000 grams of cereal, nuts etc.
Cover with melted butter mixture.
Toast gently in the oven on 180, for 30 minutes or until mixture is dry.
Stir every 5 minutes or so, to prevent burning.
When cool, mix with dried fruit if desired.
Store in an airtight container.
Time in the kitchen: under 10 minutes plus cook time😊
