Do you want your colleagues to get really jealous? Because of a delicious homemade muesli for example? That’s what happens to my boyfriend every day. Every morning I prepare a muesli with fresh fruit for him, that he needs to eat under the table in his office so no one takes it away from him…. well, not exactly, but at least in my dreams it happens like this ;-)
Since he doesn’t like nuts, I created a nut-free muesli (which may come in handy for some of you with a nut-allergy).
And these are the ingredients:
- 2 cups rolled oats (gluten free if necessary)
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup flax seeds
- 1/2 cup dried bananas
- 1 cup amaranth pops
- 1/2 cup mulberries
- 1 cup raisins
- 3 tablespoons oil (e.g. coconut oil, I took sunflower oil, because my boyfriend does not like coconut)
- 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons of raw cacao
Pour everything from oatmeal to amaranth pops in a bowl, then mix up oil, cacao and honey in a cup and pour it into the bowl. Then mix well and put it in the oven (on a baking tray or in a casserole) for 30 minutes at 180 °C (stir one or two times, so the muesli doesn’t burn).
Then take it out of the oven, let it cool down and mix with the raisins and mulberries.
Nom-nom-nom-muesli completed :-)
It is full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, unsaturated fat, and contains, in contrast to muesli from the supermarket, no added sugar. Plus it is filling for hours.
You can also vary the ingredients a little bit (dried figs or cranberries would be also really delicious, or cinnamon instead of the cacao). Serve it with some fresh fruit and milk of your choice (or plain yogurt) and you are good to go!
Have fun testing my recipe and enjoy the crunch!
Have a good start into the new week,
