I come up with a new breakfast combination every single week, but I wrote this one down!
It is nearing the end of the year and guys, I am SO tired. Is anyone else with me? It’s a really different experience working for yourself because I don’t have a nice bundle of annual leave waiting for me so I can tune out from the whole world. Of course the flipside is that I get to work flexibly ALL year, but I won’t get chill out days, really. I’ll always be switched on to some degree. I’ll report back on the New Year how that goes for me. I also plan to write about working for myself before Christmas arrives, but you know how this time of year can be…
So I wrote down a Toasted Muesli recipe! Mainly because many of the lovely products I received from Farmhouse came with lovely little notes from the producers and were genuinely tasty, so I wanted to do something with more of them.
- 2 cups of rolled oats
- 1 cup of almonds, roughly chopped (I used Twins Pantry)
- 1 cup of shredded coconut
- ½ a cup of linseed meal (I used this Breakfast Boost)
- ¾ of a cup of currants (I used Murray View Organics)
- ¼ of a cup of pure maple syrup
- ¼ of a cup of coconut oil
- 2 heaped tbsp of almond butter (I used 99th Monkey)
- ¼ of a teaspoon of salt
- Preheat your oven to 160c and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
- Mix all the dry ingredients (oats, almonds, coconut, linseed meal, currants, salt) in a large bowl.
- In a smaller, microwave safe bowl, add the coconut oil and maple syrup and melt in the microwave (about 40 seconds). You could also do this on a stovetop.
- Once the maple syrup and coconut oil is melted, quickly stir through the almond butter until smooth.
- Pour the almond maple mix into the dry ingredients and stir until coated.
- Pour the entire mix over the baking tray, spread evenly and then press down firmly to compact.
- Bake at 160c for 10-15 minutes or until the mix starts to go golden, gently turning half way.
- Serve with yoghurt (I choose coconut yoghurt), milk and fruit!
The portions depend entirely on how much you eat in one do! I end up eating it as a snack in the afternoon as well, so it’s hard to tell.
This is how easy it is to make your own toasted muesli. Although it’s still got sugar in it (via the maple syrup), it means you can control exactly how much you’re eating.
If you’re choosing not to eat sugar, switch out the maple syrup for a little more coconut oil and some cinnamon or orange rind (or both).
I think this would make a really sweet Christmas gift in a pretty jar, too!
I JUST finished my Christmas shopping yesterday.. now just for the wrapping!
Have a gorgeous day x
