Making your own home-made muesli often turns out to be cheaper and much tastier too than shop bought. And you’ll know exactly what ingredients are in it. Like no added sugars for example.
Have you ever picked up one of the cereal boxes of shop bought muesli, or other breakfast cereals and looked at the list of ingredients? More than likely they will contain added sugar, salt, sweetened dried fruits, vegetable oils and a whole list of other preservatives and additives. There’s really no need.
- 50g flaked almonds
- 50g hazelnuts halved
- 300g porridge oats
- 200g rye flakes
- 200g barley flakes
- 100g sultanas
- 50g sunflower seeds
- Toast the flaked almonds and hazelnuts over a low heat in a small saucepan stirring constantly to watch the nuts do not burn. Once toasted remove to a separate bowl and allow to cool.
- Place all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, mix well and then transfer to a 1kg sealed container.
- Serve with skimmed milk / no fat Greek yogurt and topped with a handful of fruits of your own choice. I also like to add a teaspoon of flaxseeds and a tablespoon of chai seeds to mine. Choice is yours though!
Next time you are in the supermarket. Compare the ingredients of this, your own Muesli, to those on their shelves. Which would you rather have? Those or one you have just made yourself? 🙂
And, once you’ve got used to making your own home-made muesli, perhaps you’ll want to then start to make your own home-made granola!
