Homemade Toasted Muesli is a very healthy and nutritious option for a quick and easy breakfast. It is very easy and is made by toasting oats, nuts , honey and coconut oil together in an oven. The toasted muesli can be stored in the airtight containers for 15-20 days and is very economical and tasty to the store brought muesli. Enjoy the toasted muesli with cold milk, or sprinkle it on your yogurt. I loved to munch it throughout the day like little snack. Make it once and you will never buy the store brought muesli. Also it is gluten free and vegan. It is a very healthy gifting snack. Pack the muesli in small fancy glass jars and decorate the jar with ribbons and the healthy gift pack is ready!!
You can experiment making muesli using different nuts and dried fruits of your choice such as walnut, pecan, hazelnuts, pistachio, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, coconut flakes, dried apple, cranberry, kiwi,dates, etc. You can also use rice puffs, wheat flakes, corn flakes or other cereals.
Let the toasted ingredients cool completely before adding the dried fruits to it like raisins, apricot, dates, drie apple, cranberry, kiwi, etc.
Also the amount of nuts can be adjusted as per your choice.
I have used honey as sweetener. You can replace it with maple syrup or golden syrup. You can also use butter in place of coconut oil.
You just have to mix all the ingredients together and toss them well. Then just spread them in oven and keep it for toasting for 30 minutes by just stirring in between once or twice. You can do other jobs while the muesli is being toasted.
