Ok so I know this actual grand opening first blog about Muesli ain’t gonna get me no fans, but hey I need to get this breakfast delight of a ‘spoonful of nuts in every mouthful’ outta my chest!
So on this occasion making this “dish” was all about using up all the random packets of nuts, seeds and fruits in the pantry.
I mean check that out it’s not your average muesli, it has whole brazil nuts candy toasted in maple syrup combined with seeds, berries and oats of course.
So here’s what went down when I made it – I forgot to add both oils! I guess that’s why the oats aren’t crunchy, and instead of dried apples I added dried strawberries. I also used cashews instead of almonds and after so many adjustments it still turned out better than fine! As long as you have the correct ratio of nuts:oats:fruit:syrup you will be onto a winner!!!!
Here is the original recipe if you want to try it out: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/18365/toasted+muesli
And if I was to make this again, i’d definitely halve the recipe, because (A) I don’t have time to chew muesli on the weekday and because of this (B) you want your muesli to be fresh when you go to eat it, so making enough for your weekly consumption is enough, plus it only takes 30 minutes to put together, and (C) go all out and buy some of that real maple syrup see what all the fuss is about.
Enjoy, and now I shall get back to my actual job……..unless you leave me a comment 🙂
