Muesli Mornings

3 Permalink

Good morning and happy Wednesday! Work is seriously picking up in speed now and the days are passing by faster than ever. Can you believe it’s almost Christmas in 3 months? With these faster days I need my breakfast ready in an instant, so it’s either prepared for the morning or takes me less than 5 minutes to make. I’ve always been a huge muesli lover when I was a child. I’d have oatmeal-chocolate muesli daily during school days – or nutella breads on the other days. With my intolerances towards gluten and lactose this has worn off in the past years and I’ve only occassionally eaten some glutenfree mueslis that I saw in stores.

Now I finally made my very first own muesli. A bit crunchy, yet it soaks up the milk perfectly. It filled up a big jar in the kitchen for me to take out a cup in the morning, add some lactose free milk or yoghurt and fruit to it. It’s perfect for when I don’t have much time – or I take it to the office in a small mason jar, where I keep some lactose free milk too. I’ve tried it with almond milk as well, though must admit it’s too sweet even for my taste in the mornings now. So here’s to the recipe:

What you need

1 cup buckwheat flakes
1 ½ cups popped amaranth
1 cup coconut flakes
¼ cup rice flakes
½ cup sunflower seeds
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ cup peanut oil (or any other vegetable oil)
4 tablespoons agave syrup (or more if you want it sweeter)

What to do

1) heat up the oven to 180°C
2) mix everything thoroughly in a large bowl – make sure that the oil and agave syrup are spread well
3) spread everything in a large lasagne dish / or any other large oven form you have at hand
4) bake for 20-25 min, mixing the muesli 3-4 times to enable everything to get a nice gold/brown color
5) take it out and let it cool-off (it well get slightly crunchier when cooled off fully)

Now you can

1) add some milk to the muesli (and fruit) – serve it
2) serve it with yoghurt and fresh fruit (also amazing with berries)
3) put everything in a large jar for daily usage
4) fill small mason jars and make home-made kitchen gifts out of it – who doesn’t love themselves a nice jar of muesli?

With that, I wish you some great morning breakfasts (or snacks) to come. xo
