Homemade Muesli

Muesli, or granola as it is known in the U.S., is one of the easiest things you can make at home. Making it yourself also gives you the extra advantage of being able to adapt the ingredients to your taste.

I like to keep it simple, with sultanas, oats and honey. I can then dress it up for breakfast by serving it with yoghurt and berries.

You can substitute another healthy cooking oil like olive oil or avocado oil in this recipe if you don’t like coconut oil.

And if you like your muesli fully loaded, you can add extras like nuts, dried fruits and desiccated coconut.

I’ve opted against adding any extra sugars, but if you prefer it sweeter you can add sugar to the mix before putting it in the oven.
