Homemade Muesli

This is my favourite Muesli recipe, tastes great and so quick to whip up. 

It is nice and crunchy with no added oil. I often bake the oats it in the mornings while getting the kids off to school (or you could make it while preparing dinner), and then just add the other ingredients when I have time.  Makes a lovely present as well, pop into a nice jar and tie a ribbon around! or use as a base for Muesli bars or biscuits (will share some of these recipes soon).

Breakfast is often missed, overlooked or rushed!

Having breakfast:

  • Increases your metabolic rate (how fast you burn calories) and kick starts your body into gear. (If you don’t have breakfast, your body doesn't process your next meal as quickly and tries to hold onto those nutrients.)

If you can find some time to make this sensational breakfast it will set you up for a great day, plus give you the perfect nutrients to keep your brain active and alert.

Savvy Tip:  Breakfast Smoothie - If you are short of time you could always place your muesli, fruit, milk and yoghurt into your blender or Thermomix and make a breakfast smoothie to have on the run. No excuses to start the day right!

Sprinkle a tablespoon of Chia seeds over your Muesli for a extra nourishment.
