Since I last posted a granola / muesli recipe, I still haven't found a commercially made one that I like. I guess I have now made the decision to continue making my own. Home-made certainly tastes better than anything I have ever bought, with the added bonus that I am in complete control and can keep it low sugar and low fat if I choose, incorporating my favourite flavours, which I have done here!
I have added a new (to me) ingredient, which I've never used before! Rice flakes, they work well and look just like oats, once mixed with the other ingredients and toasted in the oven. I also added dried blueberries and dried cherries .... not something I've ever seen in a commercial muesli, but I like them!!!
2 tbsp sunflower oil 2 tbsp maple syrup 150 ml apple juice 100 g puffed rice 350 g jumbo oats 100 g rice flakes 2 tbsp golden linseeds 150 g sultanas 50 g dried blueberries 50 g dried cherries 100 g walnuts, roughly chopped
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius / fan 140 degrees / gas mark 3
Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, stir to combine Add the wet ingredients, give it a really good stir to coat all the dry ingredients with the liquid
Bake in the oven for around 45 minutes, until golden brown, turning with a spatula frequently
I eat this with a probiotic yogurt most mornings )
