Hey guys, so this week I thought I’d try my hand at making some toasted muesli. Sometimes it’s a struggle to get breakfast sorted, so I thought having something that is relatively healthy (especially compared to store-bought mueslis and cereals!) on hand for the mornings would be a smart idea.
I saw this recipe on Plant Plate, a website that encourages plant based eating and has adapted their recipes for Aussies (yay!). You can find the original recipe for the Sweet N Simple Toasted Muesli here. They have heaps of incredible-looking plant based recipes that I’m keen to try.
The muesli turned out pretty well, although one bit of advice I’d give to past-me is to use two baking trays instead of one and spread the muesli out more thinly, so that it cooks more evenly.
Another thing was that I didn’t have any applesauce on hand, so I just mushed up some apricots, which were the only tinned fruit I had. It seemed to work fine as a substitute.
This muesli is golden and crunchy, with just the right amount of sweetness and protein and goodness. Thanks to Plant Plate for the recipe!
Have you ever made your own muesli before? What combination of nuts and fruits do you think is the best? I’d love to hear from you in the comments section below! xxx
