Sugar Free Super Food Muesli

21 Oct

I’m not into measuring when I cook unless it’s completely necessary. I like to use my instinct and senses – taste as I go along, use my hands where possible. So you’ll have to experiment to make this muesli or create your own version.

I prefer salty foods unless I’m really craving something sweet. So much so that I added some salt to my muesli (as usual) but no honey or coconut sugar.

As the base I used raw (not toasted) muesli mix (oats, pepitas, almonds, coconut, sesame seeds). The toasted ones tend to have canola or vegetable oil and maple syrup, honey and added sugar. They also seem to have a lot of raisins and sultanas.

I mixed in a generous amount of shredded coconut, more almonds and a few walnuts. I melted some extra virgin coconut oil and mixed it through the muesli mix in a baking tray with my hands.

I toasted it in a hot oven and kept stirring to ensure the top layer didn’t burn. The nuts and coconut contain high levels of natural oil and can burn quickly if you leave it for too long.

When it was toasted enough I added more coconut, dried goji berries and dried golden berries, chia seeds and crushed some whole cocoa nibs. I left it to cool before serving with natural yoghurt, blueberries and a heaped dessert spoon of Loving Earth Rainbow Super Food Blend

When the powder mixes with yoghurt it turns to a beautiful rich purple tone. You may need to add a little milk of your choice to stop the powder from sticking to the bowl.

This kept me full until late afternoon! I couldn’t even eat lunch. I did however manage to fit in a bowl of olives with a Gin & Tonic on my way to Sculptures By The Sea.
