Delicious Homemade Muesli

This muesli recipe is great because it ticks a lot of boxes in terms of health benefits and tastiness. It is quick to make and you can adapt it to suit your tastes.

It is great for endometriosis, cholesterol, general health and can be easily adapted to be FODMAP friendly. I have specifically included ingredients that I know support heart and women’s health and general inflammation. The combinations also include a great ratio of protein, carbohydrates (sugars) and beneficial fats. Most importantly, it is tasty and satisfying.

This recipe is not suitable if you have Coeliac Disease. Please take note of the *. These denote that the ingredient needs to be replaced if you are on a low FODMAP diet.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 4 cups rolled oats (not instant).
  • 1 cup coconut chips (or flakes). The chips make it look really nice. Replace with extra nuts if you don’t like coconut.
  • 2 cups chopped nuts/seeds (this is where you make it your own – pumpkin seeds, cashew nuts *, pecan nuts, hazelnuts, sliced almonds). Be careful of putting in walnuts, as they can taste bitter.
  • ¼ cup chopped brazil nuts
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, allspice (optional)
  • 1 pinch salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup honey* or golden syrup or maple syrup
  • ½ cup canola/coconut/rice bran oil.
  • 2 tsp essence – vanilla/orange/almond

Preheat oven to 150 degree C bake.
Mix dry ingredients.
Mix wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients. I find it easiest using my hands to mix it all through well.
Adapt the recipe to add more sweetness or oil.
Spread out onto a large baking tray and bake in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes. Turn the mixture every 10 – 15 minutes to ensure it all browns equally.

Eat with milk, yoghurt or fruit.
