Hey all, I need some suggestions! My nutritionist told me I need to start eating other breakfast foods (instead of steel cut oats daily) She suggested making my own muesli. So I've been doing some research about what goes into it etc and I can't believe how many ingredients it can have!!
Barley, bran, wheat, buckwheat, millet, oats, rice flakes... all kinds of dried fruit, nuts and seeds. And some of the recipes say to bake most of the ingredients then eat with yogurt (which I don't eat).
I found this recipe that looks tasty:
200g/7oz jumbo porridge oats
25g/1oz flaked bran or wheat germ
75g/3oz barley or rye flakes
50g/2oz hazelnuts, lightly crushed
50g/2oz flaked almonds
50g/2oz dried, ready-to-eat apricots, roughly chopped
50g/2oz dried, ready-to-eat figs, roughly chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/Gas 3.
2. Place the oats, flaked bran or wheat germ, barley or rye flakes, hazelnuts and almonds on a large baking tray and toast in the oven for 10 minutes, shaking and turning in the tray halfway through. Take the tray from the oven and leave to cool: this should take only about 10 minutes.
3. Mix the toasted ingredients with the sultanas, apricots and figs. These fruits are only suggestions: you can use whatever you prefer, for example dried apple, mango, papaya, dates or cherries.
4. You can eat this muesli straight away with milk.
Any other suggestions very much appreciated!!
