Do you struggle to eat well in the busy-ness of work day mornings? Homemade Muesli (Granola) is the answer

If you are like me you won’t have time to think of what you’ll have for breakfast. Mornings are busy and too short to think of something from scratch. How handy and nutritious it is to have your own Homemade Muesli (Granola) on hand so you are ready for breakfast. It’s a great start to the morning.

Homemade muesli is packed with fibre, includes protein and is low in sugar. It is such a great alternative to packet cereal which can be high in sugar, salt, preservatives and other additives. In less than half an hour you can make up several – many- serves – far more than in a packet you bought from the shop.

This muesli is extremely heart healthy as it contains oats. Oats can lower cholesterol levels and help control blood sugar levels. They are high in fibre along with the bran and wheatgerm.

The choice of dried fruit is yours but know that dried fruit is full of anti oxidants and is great for digestive health. And nuts, include your favourites, are full of protein and minerals.

Homemade Muesli (Granola) includes a drizzle of honey and coconut for sweetness. Both healthy, wholefood choices.

Perhaps the best thing- it is absolutely delicious! This muesli always gets rave reviews. It is easy to make in large batches – you could double the quantities if you wish. I enjoy mine with milk, yoghurt and berries.  Or you could use it top off a chia and berry pudding.  Or simply serve it with cold dairy or plant milk.

So start your day right. Choose Homemade Muesli/Granola for you and your family.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups bran
  • 1 cup wheatgerm
  • 1 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts (here macadamias, walnuts and cashews)
  • 3/4 cup pepitas and sunflower seeds (mixed)
  • 1 1/2 cups dried fruit (here raisins and apricots - sliced)
  • 4-6 tbsp honey, drizzled or to taste
  • generous spray of olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lay baking paper over two baking sheets. Combine everything apart from the dried fruit in a large mixing bowl. Then spread the mixture out over two baking sheets. Drizzle honey over the mixture on each tray and lightly mix through. Then spray each tray liberally with olive oil. Place the trays in the oven and bake until the top is golden, then turn the mixture so the underside also bakes. Be careful not to burn the mixture, especially the nuts. Remove from oven, allow to cool off then stir through the dried fruit. Store in an air tight container and enjoy for breakfast (or as a snack!)
