Baked Cocoa-nut Muesli Recipe

16 Feb

I love crunchy toasted muesli but sometimes I really don’t feel like working my jaw so hard first thing in the morning. Here’s my recipe for a yummy and healthy muesli that softens once you add milk but still has a nice crunch thanks to the nuts and cocoa beans.

2 cups of rolled oats

4 tablespoons of whole, raw and unsalted almonds

1 tablespoon of whole, raw and unsalted pistachios

4 cocoa beans crushed into chunks

4 heaped tablespoons of dessicated coconut

1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

1 tablespoon of organic coconut sugar

1 tablespoon of pure cocoa powder

A drizzle of honey (or more to suit your taste)

A pinch of salt

Combine all the ingredients in a baking tray and drizzle the honey over the top. Stir well and bake in the oven @ 200°c for 20 mins. Allow the muesli to cool before serving and store the rest in an airtight container or jar.

If you add milk to the muesli it will mix with the cocoa powder and become chocolatey.

You can also serve the muesli with natural yoghurt and fruit.

You could also use this recipe mixed with butter and flour to sprinkle on top of a fruit crumble. Not so healthy but still delicious!
