This muesli is full of seeds and almonds, with warm spice accents and a crunchy, nutty texture.


400g organic rolled oats

50g flaked almonds

100g whole almonds, skin on

150g sunflower seeds

150g sesame seeds

50g chia seeds

125g pepitas

100g shredded coconut

1 whole nutmeg, freshly grated

100g sultanas

100g mixed dried berries

2½ tsp ground cinnamon

100ml coconut oil

125ml golden syrup

125ml black treacle or maple syrup



1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees fan-forced or 200 degrees conventional.

2. Mix all the dry ingredients, including the dried fruit, in a bowl until well combined. Add the oil and syrups and rub through the mix thoroughly with your fingers.

3. Spread the mix out in one layer on lined baking trays and toast for 20 minutes. Shake the trays after 10 minutes to toast evenly and stir occasionally to ensure it doesn't burn. Allow to cool on the trays, stirring occasionally to prevent it clumping. Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
