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
1 cup of dried fruit – Try to use organic fruits that do not have 202 (sulphite) 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 180? C stirring frequently so that it doesn’t burn top and bottom.
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!
