So my last muesli recipe was designed to give your jaw a day off but I do love crunchy toasted muesli. This is a recipe to get your jaw muscles warmed up for your daily workout.
4 cups of rolled oats
3 tablespoons of whole almonds
1 tablespoon of flaked almonds
2 tablespoons of walnut chunks
2 tablespoons of whole hazelnuts
2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon of slivered almonds
1 tablespoon of pepitas
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
2 heaped teaspoons of cinnamon powder
1/2 a teaspoon of cardamom powder
1/4 of a cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice
Rind of 1 orange finely grated
1/4 of a cup of honey
1 teaspoon of rosewater
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 tablespoons of goji berries
1 tablespoons of craisins
Place the oats, nuts, spices and salt in a large baking tray. Put the orange juice, orange rind, olive oil, rosewater, vanilla essence and honey in a jug and stir well.
Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir well. You may need to separate the mixture onto 2 trays to allow it to toast evenly. Place the trays in the oven at 160°c for 30 – 45 mins depending on how golden and crunchy you want the muesli to be. Keep an eye on it, give it a stir about every 10 mins and swap the trays between the top and bottom shelf to allow even browning.
When the muesli is golden and crunchy enough, remove from the oven, allow to cool and stir through the craisins and goji berries. Store the muesli in a jar or airtight container.
*All nuts are raw and unsalted
