Tropical Toasted Muesli

Muesli is my fav. Unfortunately, it can be SO hard to find a decent muesli in the supermarket so I just figure that it's easier to make my own.

Making your own muesli doesn't take much effort at all. It's quick and easy!

I love this combination of dried tropical fruits (pineapple, a couple of melons, and mango), almonds, coconut, and vanilla.

Tropical Toasted Muesli

Makes 12 half-cup servings

3 Cups rolled oats
1 Cup shredded coconut
70 g sliced almonds
1/4 Cup canola oil
1/3 Cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 Cup chopped dried mixed tropical fruits

1. Preheat the oven to 160°C

2. Combine the oats, coconut, and almonds in a large bowl.

3. Heat the oil, maple syrup, and vanilla over a medium heat in a saucepan, whisking frequently, until just hot (about 3 minutes). Pour over the oat mixture and mix well, make sure all the oats are coated.

4. Spread the mixture evenly over a baking tray with sides or roasting dish and bake for about 25 minutes, stirring ever 5 minutes, until the oats are lightly golden. 

5. Stir in the dried fruits and leave to cool completely before transferring to an airtight container. It will keep for a week or two.
