Healthy Christmas Muesli Recipe
- 1 cup mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower and sesame work well)
- 1 cup coarsely chopped almonds
- ½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
- 2 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp good quality salt (ie Himalayan salt)
- 2 cup rolled oats (ideally organic as they are extra soft and creamy)
- ½ cup coconut flakes
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- ¼ cup dried cranberries
- ¼ cup goji berries
- Preheat oven to 150 degrees
- Mix well your seeds, nuts, cinnamon, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and salt in a bowl so that all ingredients are coated evenly and well.
- Spread the mixture evenly onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and put in the oven. Take a look after around 15 minutes, giving it a little shake, pop it back in the oven and keep an eye on it. When it is golden brown, crunchy and yummy, take it out and let it cool.
- When the mix has cooled, add your rolled oats, coconut flakes, chia seeds, cranberries and goji berries. Mix it up in a bowl and divide into your jars or bags.

The finishing touch!!
Once cool, pour muesli into sterilised glass jars and decorate with a festive ribbon or fabric topper. (Jars, ribbon and toppers are also a great way to repurposed decluttered fabric & jars)
