High protein MUSELI recipe
1 cup of whole grain oats (not the refined kind) or you can use flaked rice if you want this to be Gluten free.
5 cups of shredded/flaked coconut
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
½ cup linseeds
1 cup broken cashews (if you can find nice ones, not old & rancid)
1 cup roasted peanuts – Or any other nuts you have. Walnuts can be good if they are fresh or slivered almonds.
The peanuts I usually roast while the rest of the mix is baking and then roughly crush before adding to the finished mix.
1 cup of dried fruit – Try to use organic fruits that do not have 220 (sulphites)on them.
I use organic sultanas and chopped sweet apricots.
Mix all the ingredients except the peanuts and fruits together in an oven dish.
Bake at about 180deg C, stirring frequently so that it doesn’t burn top and bottom, till lightly roasted.
Cool and then add the fruit and pre-roasted peanuts.
I do not add oil or honey to this mix but the fruit makes it quite sweet enough.
It is also very filling. A ½ cup is plenty for a good breakfast and great with yoghurt and soy or rice milk.
It keeps blood sugars balanced and you will not feel hungry mid morning and feel the need to snack!
