Recipe: Christmas spiced toasted muesli

Prep and cooking time: 45 mins

Serves: 10

Ingredients

  • 200g rolled oats or gluten-free oats
  • 45g desiccated or flaked coconut
  • 45g pumpkin seeds
  • 150g mixed roasted pecans, chestnuts, hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 orange zested
  • 85g butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg white, optional

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C/140°C fan.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix lightly.
  3. Whisk the egg white (if using) in a separate bowl until it reaches soft peaks; it should start to look white and creamy. This can take 5-7 minutes with a fork or 3 minutes with a hand-held whisk.
  4. Add the melted butter/oil and foamy egg white (if using) to the dry ingredients and mix well. Spread the mixture onto a lined baking tray evenly
  5. Bake for 30-35mins, or until golden. Check the baking at around 15mins for colour, and mix lightly. Adjust the heat if necessary.
  6. Turn the oven off and leave the muesli in the oven with the door slightly ajar until it cools.
  7. Once cool, store in an airtight jar or container, and consume within one week
