Muesli Recipe

A Homemade Muesli Recipe for the Best Breakfast!

Homemade muesli really is a breeze to make..so here's a muesli recipe to get you loving muesli!

Muesli is a great snack recipe, too - not just a breakfast recipe. If you want healthy, organic food, then a good muesli recipe is a great starting point at any time of the day!

Here are some suggestions for the very best organic ingredients and the proportions to use.

Get the kids involved if you can - it's quite good fun, pouring and mixing the ingredients.

Lets look at the main ingredients for a good muesli.

A Homemade Muesli Recipe:

First the cereals...

To prepare a good muesli base choose some or all of the following organic grains: wheat flakes, rolled oats, rye flakes, barley kernels, wheatgerm.

Oats and wheat flakes are probably the commonest ingredients for muesli. Use them as the main elements in your muesli base - as much as 50 - 80% of the mix. Most of these can be found in health food stores and even supermarkets. If you cannot find organic cereals you might be able to find conservation grade ones.

Experiment with different mixes and you will soon learn which cereals you like best. For a subtle taste it's good to include a high proportion of oats.

Go easy on the wheat germ. While it is nutritionally wonderful, too much of it gives a mealy texture. It also deteriorates quickly.

If you are intolerant of wheat, wheat-free muesli . It's also very easy to mix your own.

Easy on the nuts and seeds...

Mix in some of these organic nuts and seeds: almonds, brazils, cashew nuts, coconut, hazels, macadamia, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts.

It is best not to have too many nuts and seeds in your muesli mix as they are rich in proteins and oils - the mix can become rather a challenge to the digestive system!

Of course you can make muesli as a high carb recipe by leaving out nuts and seeds entirely, if you prefer. Oats and wholewheat do contain a little protein but if you want to make a high protein recipe, this can be achieved by using plenty of nuts and seeds and adding tahini.

Chop the larger nuts into pieces first. Almonds and coconut are best flaked.

Hazels and almonds can be lightly toasted under the grill. Only do this if you are going to eat the muesli mix fairly quickly, as cooked nuts will not keep as long. Toasting brings out the nutty flavours. Put down tin foil or a shallow metal tray and toast on a low heat, watching them like a hawk for burning. You can rub off the brown skins of hazel nuts after toasting.

You can dry roast small seeds such as sesame seeds in a pan over a low heat. Keep them moving by shaking the pan often to stop them burning. Turn the heat off as soon as they start to smell good.

And finally...the fruit

Add in a small proportion of any of the following dried fruits: apple, apricots, banana, currants, dates, prunes, sultanas, raisins,

A homemade muesli recipe - oats, lovely oats!
