Homemade müesli

Fills one medium IKEA glass-jar  |

My life changed after I realised how easy it is to make müesli at home. When I was young I could easily eat a bowl of cereal (mainly müesli) every day and it was only in my twenties that I realised that every single brand in the store is basically candy. Even though my mom had always taught me to read the labels I had somehow missed the idiotic amounts of added sugar that most brands have in them. Anyway, you can forget about buying müesli after you make it at home. It's that delicious. 

We try to make a big batch on a lazy Sunday so that we always have a jar of müesli at hand. This is a very basic recipe, so there's lots of room for experimenting - try adding different nuts, maybe raisins or coconut flakes after baking, or even tiny pieces of chocolate (high cocoa count works best, we prefer 90%) if you want to indulge yourself. Feel free to play around with the ratios to find a balance that fits your taste.

  • 4 dl rye flakes

  • 2 dl of sunflower seeds

  • 1 ½ dl pumpkin seeds

  • 1 dl of hazelnuts

  • 1 dl of walnuts

  • a tablespoon of honey

  1. Turn your oven on to 200 °C
  2. Chop the hazel- & walnuts coarsely into big chunks
  3. Throw all the ingredients in a large flat baking dish (or on a baking tray)
  4. Blend them together and spread them out evenly
  5. Spread a tablespoon of honey all over the mixture -- this will create chunks so try to mix it as well as possible
  6. Place the dish in the middle of the oven and bake until golden
  7. Top a bowl of soyghurt with the müesli and add blueberries
  8. Enjoy!

NOTE: The nuts burn suddenly and quickly after about 10-15 min depending on your oven, so keep an eye on them when you have them in the oven!There you go. A simple and easy way to make your own müesli. Remember, this recipe is ripe for experimentation, so go nuts (literally and figuratively)!
