Maple Pecan Toasted Muesli

On June 9, 2017

You can save LOADS of money on your grocery bill if you simply ditch any form of packaged muesli product from your kitchen cupboard. This version rocks in flavour and texture make a couple of batches at a time as it stores well. Its a good little topper for your morning smoothie or night-time nice-cream treat. Serve it swimming in your favourite milk or with a generous dollop of Cows milk yoghurt topped with your favourite seasonal fresh fruit.

Makes approximately 900 g (2 lb/6 cups)
Preparation time 5 minutes
Cooking time 26 minutes + cooling

Ingredients
125 g (4 oz) unsalted butter, chopped
440 g (15 oz) rolled (porridge) oats
50 g (1 oz/ cup) pecans
75 g (2 oz/ cup) pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
80 ml (2 fl oz/1/3 cup) pure maple syrup
milk of choice, to serve

Method
Preheat the oven to 200C (400F)/180C (350F) fan-forced.

Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Melt the butter for 1 min/120C/speed 1. Add all the remaining ingredients. Chop for 5 sec/speed 5.
Transfer the oat mixture to the prepared tray. Using your fingertips, gently spread the mixture out evenly over the tray (there should be some crumbly bits and some macadamia-sized clumps).

Bake the mixture for 25 minutes, carefully turning twice during cooking, or until golden and crisp. Leave to cool on the tray.

Eat the muesli immediately with your milk of choice, or store out of direct sunlight in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
