Emma’s Munchy Muesli

1 Comment

There’s nothing quite like a refreshing bowl of muesli in the morning. I love to make my own; partly because I like to choose my own healthy ingredients, partly to stave off the boredom of yet another huge box of samey samey muesli!

Here is one of my favourite recipes but you can use any type of nut, seed and dried or fresh fruit. Along with home made yoghurt; you can’t beat those lively little enzymes in the home made yoghurt 🙂

Emma’s Munchy Muesli

  • Add the oats, seeds and apricots to a large bowl or serving container and mix together
  • Store this mix for use on a daily basis – 35g per serving (3 tablepoons)

  • You can add the walnuts if the mix will be used within one week but nuts can turn rancid if not stored in an air tight container so please be careful if storing for weeks

From my personal Nutrition notes:

Oats are a medicinal food; full of fibre and beta glucans to support a healthy digestive function. Seeds and walnuts provide omega oils for the brain, skin and hair, while banana and apricots are full of potassium and other minerals. Berries are full of immune enhancing antioxidants.
