Blueberry and Cranberry Crunch Muesli

Start your day with this healthy mixture of fruit, nuts and seeds, served with low-fat milk or yogurt. In summer, leave out the dried fruit and serve the muesli with some fresh berries instead.

Blueberry and Cranberry Crunch Muesli

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (200 g) five-grain porridge mix or rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (30 g) shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup (70 g) pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup (50 g) walnuts
  • 1/3 cup (50 g) macadamia nuts

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) pure maple syrup

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Combine the porridge mix, coconut, seeds, nuts and spices in a large bowl.
  3. Heat the oil and maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes, until warmed through. Pour into the porridge mixture and stir until well combined. Spread the mixture over the prepared trays.
