Free Healthy Recipe - Crunchy Nut Muesli

Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free

With this in the cupboard, there's no excuse for skipping breakfast. There are hundreds of delicious organic muesli products you can buy, but it's lots of fun to make your own - and better for you. This recipe makes about 500 grams but you can easily reduce the quantities. Nuts are high in omega-3 fats and are very good for you. Once chopped, heated and exposed to air and light, however, they can become rancid and lose much of their nutritional goodness. The best advice is to buy nuts whole, store them in a cool, dry place and, once cooked and chopped, eat within a week. This muesli is delicious, so that shouldn't be too hard a task!

½ cup rye flakes
½ cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
½ cup almonds, roughly chopped
½ cup brazil nuts, roughly chopped
½ cup dried apple, chopped
½ cup dried apricots, chopped
¼ cup maple syrup
milk or soy milk to serve

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Mix all the cereals, nuts and dried fruit together in a bowl.
Gently heat the maple syrup in a small pan until it becomes very runny then pour over the mixture and toss to coat.
Spread the coated mixture on a non-stick baking sheet and roast in the oven for 20 minutes, tossing frequently.
Cool and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
Serve with your milk of preference.
