Toasted Spiced Muesli – Video Blog

29 Mar

A delicious way to start the day and use up ingredients in the pantry.

Blood Orange Infused Toasted Spelt Muesli

5 Mar

I love it when I can cook without a recipe and use my senses and this is a perfect example. I visited a favourite wholesaler on Friday and stocked up on ingredients to make a batch of muesli for the week.

Organic Wholegrain Rolled Spelt

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Sesame Seeds, white, hulled

Hazelnuts

Pistachios

Walnuts

Flaked Almonds

Coconut Flakes

Honey

Blood Orange Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Turmeric Powder

Cinnamon Powder

Cocoa Nibs

Himalayan Pink Salt

Pre heat an oven to 180° c

Pour the rolled spelt into a baking tray and add the desired amount of nuts, sesame seeds and coconut flakes. Sprinkle over some salt, turmeric and cinnamon powder and crumble the cocoa nibs into small chunks.

If the coconut oil is too solid to pour, warm it just enough so it becomes liquid and pour generously over the muesli mixture. Drizzle with the olive oil and honey and stir well so all the ingredients are coated and evenly distributed.

Toast in the oven and stir regularly so the top layer doesn’t burn. When the muesli is golden brown, remove from the oven and allow it to cool to room temperature. Serve with your favourite milk, yoghurt, fresh or poached fruit. YUM!

This muesli is fragrant, full of texture and packed with ingredients that each boast their own list of health benefits. I’ve been enjoying it with this pistachio yoghurt and poached peaches. There’s another spelt recipe to follow and you won’t believe how good it is because it looks seriously naughty!

Toasted Cardamom, Cinnamon and Rosewater Muesli Recipe

17 Feb

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.

Ingredients List:

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

Method:

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
