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
50 g Olive Oil
30 g runny Honey (or more if you’d like it sweeter)
Good pinch of Salt
1/3 tsp ground Cardamon
1/4 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg, grated
A couple grinds of Pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
2. Mix all the Ingredients together in a Bowl, and spread thinly on a large Baking Tray. Bake for about 15 Minutes, or until the Nuts and Oats are a gorgeous gold brown colour. Stir the Muesli after every 5 Minutes to get an even roasting.
3. When the Muesli comes out the Oven, add the chopped figs and allow to cool. Store in an airtight Jar.
When making your own Muesli be creative with your Spices! Add Ginger, Cloves, All Spice, Star Anise.
