Toasted Muesli

This is a firm family favourite. Since it is so nutrient dense, about 4 to 5 heaped tablespoons with yoghurt is satisfying. Easy to prepare and yields well making it cost efficient.


6 cups rolled oats

1 cup desiccated coconut

1 cup natural almonds roughly chopped in half

1 cup cashew nut pieces

½ cup flax seed powder

¼ cup chia seeds

1 cup sunflower seeds

½ cup sesame seeds

½ cup pumpkin kernels

½ cup honey

½ cup vegetable oil

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon powder

1 cup chopped dates

½ cup sliced figs

1 cup sultanas

Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees Celsius. In a large bowl, combine the oats, desiccated coconut, all the nuts and seeds. Mix well. In a small saucepan set over a low heat, add honey, oil and cinnamon powder and stir until all melted together – make sure you don’t boil. Pour over the grains and nut mix. Mix well, making sure everything is evenly coated.

Put in two large baking dishes and place them both in the oven. You will need to check every five minutes and turn the muesli over so the mixture is evenly toasted and golden brown.

Remove from oven, and add the dried fruit while still hot. Mix well and leave to cool before storing in air tight containers. Serve with yoghurt and seasonal fruit.
