TOASTED COCONUT & ALMOND MUESLIThursday, September 15, 2016
"My friend drowned in a bowl of muesli. A strong currant pulled him in."
Quote by Tommy Cooper
When I was little I used to love the Alpen cereal box. The boxes showed a beautiful mountain range. Perhaps it was fates way of telling me I would one day live close to the mountains? Anyway, I do love mountains and I certainly love muesli.
There are no hard and fast rules about how to make muesli but I stick to the following basic guidelines:
2 cup oats
1 cup fruit- I used a mixture of raisins and dried cranberries
1 cup seeds & nuts- I used a combo of pumpkin seeds, flax seed and crushed California Almonds
1 cup toasted coconut- just dry fry it in a large frying pan and move it around to stop it from burning
I was sent some truly fabulous California Almonds to work with for this blog post. I will be using them in quite a few recipes coming soon. I was not paid to say nice things (I only say nice things when I really mean it!) and all recipes and images are my own.
