Scrumptious homemade toasted muesli

There's nothing better than a healthy bowl of muesli to start the day.

 Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s often one that we rush with unhealthy, sugary cereal, or boring, plain toast rather than making the most of what should be a chance to fuel up for the day ahead. 

There’s nothing better than starting the day with a big bowl of delicious, wholesome muesli, and it’s even better when it’s homemade! 

Make this in advance and keep it in an airtight container ready to serve up quickly in the morning for the best way to start your busy day. 

Delicious with some greek or flavoured yoghurt, and try adding some grated apple to it for a fruity twist. Yum!

  • 120g shredded coconut
  • 250ml maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 40g each of three dried fruits (you could use any, for example cranberries, dried apricots and dried mango)


1. Preheat your oven to 150C.
