Toasted Muesli with Nuts, Seeds and Dates
A simple toasted muesli recipe using nourishing nuts, seeds and dates for sweetness. This is a great recipe to gift to friends in mason jars for quick, as well as easy breakfasts on the go by pre-filling small mason jars for the morning. A great alternative to granola or toast in the morning!
- 3 cups Canadian oats traditional rolled
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 1/2 cup almonds flaked
- 3/4 cup coconut shredded
- 1 cup dates organic chopped
- 2 cups raisins organic
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup flaxseeds
- 1/2 cup pepitas
- 1 cup wheat germ optional
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 400 Fahrenheit.
Spread the oats on a lined baking tray and let toast in the oven for about 8 minutes. You may need to do two batches.
Remove and place in a big bowl. Now spread the sesame seeds and flaked almonds on the baking tray. Toast for about 3-5 minutes. Add to the oats.
Spread the coconut onto the baking tray. Watch carefully as it burns quickly. Toast for about 1-3 minutes or until golden. Add to the oat mixture.
Add the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix well. Let cool for about 15 minutes.
Grab your collection of jars big and small. If you want to have some ready made breakfasts, put about 1/2 cup of the mixture into small jars and seal with a lid. Now, on busy mornings, you can just add milk and eat on the run.
Or, if you are feeling like having a DIY Christmas, fill up some nice jars with muesli and tie a bow around the lid. Give to your favourite people.
