I promise you, that it’s worth the small amount of effort it takes to make your own muesli. This recipe gets asked after the most!
Be warned though, there is no turning back!
Almond, Fig and Olive Oil Muesli
300 g Oats
100 g roughly chopped Hazelnuts
100 g roughly chopped Almonds
50 g Sunflower Seeds
50 g Pumpkin Seeds
100 g dried Figs, roughly chopped
4 tbsp Olive Oil
3 tsp runny Honey
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 Nutmeg, grated
A good grind of Pepper
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, and spread thinly on a large baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the nuts and oats and a gorgeous gold brown colour. Stir after every 5 minutes.
Add the chopped figs and allow to cool. Store in an airtight jar.
Be creative with your spices! Add cinnamon, cardamom, all spice, star anise.
Use up what’s in your cupboard, poppy seeds, linseed, chia seeds, spelt flakes and coconut all make great additions to your muesli.
