Recipe For Toasted Muesli

They say that change is as good as a holiday, and so after more than 20 years of making the same granola recipe I decided to change things, but only slightly. This Toasted Muesli is the result! Dave and I are really creatures of habit when it comes to breakfast. Every morning when we arrive at work, Dave makes coffee and dishes himself up a bowl of the toasted muesli. I drink my coffee before even thinking about food, and then start my day with fruit – usually 2 small apples. Over the weekends and when we are on holiday, breakfast consists of eggs and on the odd occasion, oats. And I will only eat the oats if they are made with a tot of whisky, a good knob of butter and sweetened with honey. For my muesli I have added cacao nibs for that slight chocolate taste and cranberries and goji berries for colour. The nicest thing with my muesli recipe is that you can change it to suit your own tastes and you can add more nuts, take away some of the dried fruit or even use coconut oil. This is all entirely up to you. Make sure you keep it stored in an airtight container, and like with my granola recipe, you can add a cinnamon quill to the container to add an extra flavour note, however slight it might be.

What do you eat for breakfast during the work week?

  4. I love how you have combined all of these flavours together. This is the perfect start to the day, energetic, wholesome and delicious. I have fallen into the 2 egg syndrome for breakfast but need to add more variety. Thanks for this inspirational combination 😀

  9. This looks very good muesli – Tandy – I seldom eat the same thing for breakfast two mornings running – my breakfast can run from fruit, muesli & yogurt, eggs on toast, avo & feta on toast, just toast and butter, or even last night’s leftovers (that’s not usual – cos I usually have those for lunch!). So no set pattern there – I just take each morning as it comes.
