Make your own Muesli

14 May

Homemade Muesli

Muesli is a healthy European recipe, which is popular as breakfast cereal. It has many health benefits such as reducing the risk of various cancers, lowering the cholesterol and glycemic index. However this may not be the case for all breakfast mueslis sold in supermarkets. Generally those mueslis contain added sugar, which brings extra calories. The best way is to make your own muesli at home, with your choice of ingredients.

 Ingredients

 2 cups rolled oats, uncooked

1 cup puffed rice

½ cup squash seeds

¼ cup coconut flakes

1 tablespoon crashed walnuts

1 tablespoon crushed hazelnuts

1 tablespoon almond flakes

2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Dried fruits as desired (bananas, apricots, raisins, cranberries…)

Preparation Method

Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F). Mix and place all ingredients (except dried fruits, coconut and almond flakes) in an oven tray and grill for 5 minutes.  Then add coconut and almond flakes and grill for 5 more minutes. Almonds are very quick to grill, so make sure they are not burned. At the end, add any dried fruits you like at any amount.

You can consume muesli at breakfast and also as a light dish or even a dessert at any time of the day. It can be eaten with orange juice, fruit juice, milk or yogurt (original muesli was eaten with orange juice contrary to contemporary consumption habits).
