I know some people don’t give much regard to breakfast but for me, it is the meal I look forward to the most. I love all breakfast foods but more often than not it is a crunchy muesli or granola that I crave the most. I was recently reading Healthy Every Day by Pete Evans and I spotted his very healthy recipe for a breakfast granola called Chilli’s Muesli. It had a few ingredients that I didn’t have in the pantry so I decided to substitute a few things for what I had on hand and the following recipe was the result … delicious!
40g sunflower seeds
40g pumpkin seeds
1tbsp chia seeds or ground flax seeds
40 ml coconut oil
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
honey to taste
6g shredded coconut
60g dried cranberries
Milk and Fresh berries to serve
Preheat oven to 160C.
Mix the almonds, macadamias, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds together in a bowl. In a smaller bowl mix the coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, salt and honey. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to coat all the nuts and seeds. Spread mixture out on a baking tray covered with baking paper and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Check the mixture and give it a mix then place back in the oven until the mixture turns a lovely golden brown. This may take 2-5 minutes depending on your oven. You will just need to keep an eye on it to prevent burning.
When the mix is cool, add the cranberries, chia or flax seeds and coconut. Keep in a sealed container and enjoy with fresh berries, milk and yoghurt.
