Choco-Nutty Muesli

Do you call it muesli or granola? I’ve always said muesli. I think granola is more of an American thing. Either way, it tastes so good! You can of course buy this from the supermarket, but homemade is just as great as store bought (if not better).

It’s also a great healthy snack to have on hand, a snack that fulfills your sweet craving whilst not being too bad for you. I decided to amp up my usual muesli recipe by making it chocolate! Yum!

Choco-Nutty Muesli

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup roughly chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup rice bubbles
  • 1/3 cup cocoa/cacao
  • 1/2 cup milk (best to use a non animal milk, I used oat milk)
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Opional
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs

Instructions

Pre heat your oven to 160c. Place all the dry ingredients into a bowl. add in the wet ingredients and give it all a good mix. It’s best to mix it by hand, it’ll get messy but it’s worth it. Lay the mixture onto a baking paper lined tray (or 2 if you prefer) and bake. Check on the muesli every 5-10 minutes or so and give it a good toss to avoid any bits getting burnt. The muesli should be done after 30-40 minutes or until crispy. If you have the time, leave the muesli in the oven after turning it off, this will give the muesli more time to crisp up and dry.

Muesli and big mouth funnels



I won a pair Bigmouth funnels in an Instagram competition. Aren’t they great? All that muesli going straight in the jar. Their new purple/pink colours inspired me to make matching food tags, pictured above. These food labels are in PDF format, all you have to do is click here and hit print.

Homemade Muesli







Ingredients

3 cups instant/rolled oats
1 cup shredded/desiccated coconut
1/2 cup mixed seeds
1 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup syrup (honey, agave, maple)
1/2 cup liquid (milk, or fruit juice)
1/4 cup butter or oil

Other optional extras
Sultanas, currents or craisins (I say optional because I don’t like chewy bits in my muesli, but it’s probably the way most people have it)
Diced dried fruit

Method

Mix all the dry ingredients, chia and sesame seeds were my choice for the seed mix as you can see in the picture below. This was taken before I added the nuts, I used almonds, macadamias and cashews.







Add in syrup , liquid and oil/butter, I prefer butter, I rub it in and it creates chunky crunchy bits. Give the muesli a good mix. Spread the muesli evenly in a tray and put it in the oven. Bake until golden, usually around 20 minutes on 180°C, or until golden. If adding dried fruits, add them in after you’ve toasted the muesli. Stores in airtight container for a 2-3 weeks.

Try it with blue berries and yogurt!
