I love this ‘muesli’. It’s high in fibre due to nuts and seeds, especially the Linseeds which make it great for keeping your bowels healthy. It’s also high in protein and healthy fats, especially Omega-3 from the Linseeds and walnuts.
I could call it ‘Paleo Muesli’, as its very similar to the Paleo muesli on the market, but much cheaper because you make it yourself. I could also call it ‘low carb’ muesli, because it’s virtually carb free (especially if you omit the honey/syrup). It also happens to be low FODMAP (without honey, for those on the Low FODMAP diet) and gluten free. But I prefer not to call it any of these names, because I do not eat it because it’s ‘Paleo’, ‘Low Carb’ or ‘Gluten Free’, I eat it because it’s delicious, fills me up all morning and I know its healthy!
1 cup whole Linseed
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
¾ cup coconut flakes
¾ cup almonds, chopped
¾ cup walnuts, chopped
1 Tbsp Chia seed
1 Tbsp honey or rice malt syrup or maple syrup (optional, but I like it with honey)
Mix all ingredients together in a baking tray, drizzle with honey/syrup and roast in oven on 180deg for 2mins, take out and turn mixture over with a spatula and roast again for another 2 mins. Repeat one more time. Store in air tight container.
Serve 2-3 Tbsp with natural yoghurt and fruit.
