Toasted Honey and Maple Syrup Muesli with Almonds and Walnuts
Toasted homemade muesli is a super recipe to make on a Sunday morning, as it makes enough to last you the rest of the week. I first made my own toasted muesli a few years ago when making a lot of different dishes for a brunch one day. Its really simple to make, and tastes so good topped on yoghurt with a little fresh fruit. The beauty of this recipe is that you can substitute any of the added ingredients, such as hazelnuts instead of almonds or pumpkin seeds in place of sesame seeds. Just as long as you keep the quantities roughly the same, it will work. Have fun experimenting.
Makes enough for 2 peoples breakfast for a few days.
50g chopped walnuts
50g chopped almonds
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 ½ tbsp honey
3 tbsp maple syrup
On a hot dry frying pan, lightly toast the nuts for a couple of min, then add the sesame seeds for 30 sec. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and mix with the raisins.
Add the oats to the still hot dry pan and toast lightly for a min. Then add the honey and maple syrup, keep stirring until all the oats are coated and start to hang together. Continue to toast and stir for 5 min.
Take the mixture off the heat and place on a sheet of baking parchment placed on a wire rack, leave to cool.
Once cooled mix with the toasted nuts and raisins, and store in an air tight container.
