For a new twist on a healthy, satisfying breakfast, try this homemade toasted muesli. It's lower in fat and sugar than granola, but higher in fibre and protein.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups large-flake oats
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped toasted walnuts or almonds
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts or flax meal
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • HEAT a large frying pan over medium. Toast oats, stirring occasionally, until golden, 4 to 5 min. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • TOAST pepitas, stirring often, until they puff up slightly, about 8 min. Stir into oats along with walnuts, coconut, flax meal and salt.

To make a yogurt parfait

Layer muesli with yogurt and fresh fruit – we love it with juicy, in-season oranges and just a touch of honey.
