Good Morning Monday! - Toasted Muesli


The boys are at school.....missed the bus again!
dropped off late because I was disorganised baking muffins in the morning, oh and the digger guy dropped in unexpectently...
add in a stop for banana's because the kids are going through fruit at an alarming rate
Oh and did I mention....I closed Mr B's fingers in the bathroom door!! ouch!....poor thing (feeling awful)
There was also Big J who had a mini meltdown to throw in the mix....something about rain and having to clean the bird cage.....

Moving on.....

Back home and finally getting to enjoy breakfast

But not without a child on my lap and the laptop in front of me of course

Sound familiar?

Or maybe you're on the way to work and you're breakfast is either consumed in the car, bus or at work in front of your computer screen..

Anyway's back to food...this Muesli is good I'll share

Tasty Toasted Muesli

 What I really like about this, is there's no oils or processed sugars in the recipe...helping to sustain me for longer and avoid snacking from the baking tin!


4 Cups rolled oats ( or use a mix of grains if desired )
1 Cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 Cup of Pumpkin seeds
1 cup of Almonds ( roughly chopped )
 2 tsp  of Cinnamon
 1/3 Cup of Honey
 1 Cup of Apple Juice ( I use an organic brand and freeze in batches )
1 Tbsp of Maple Syrup *optional
1/2 to 3/4 cup of dried fruits. (I use raisins)

Preheat oven to 150c, Mix the grains, seeds, nuts and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Heat apple juice and stir in the honey and maple syrup to dissolve.
Stir the liquid into the dry ingredients and mix to evenly combine ( using your hands is ideal )
Spread out in a large roastsing dish and bake for 1 hours or until crisp and golden, but keep an eye on it and during this time, stir and break up any large chunks.

When finished, cool then mix in the dried fruits.

Makes 6/12 cups.
 And will keep fresh for over a month in a sealed container.
I always make a double batch because it's so popular it never lasts that long!  I recommend serving with some stewed apple or other fruit, even a dollop of yoghurt....and because it's so filling you only need about 1 cup or less at a time!

never thought to put juice in the muesli. My recipe is identical except it does use 1/3 cup oil. Will have to try the juice. I shut J's hand in the door when he was little, still feel sick thinking about it. It cut down to the bone and there was the quickest ever trip to the Dr (who said it was quite common!!!)

oh yes, going to try this. i'm using a nigella recipe at the mo which uses loads of maple syrup (so expensive) and only saves for 10 days. juice-what a great idea for a sweetner!
