Fruit and nut muesli

15 minutes
Serves 10 (makes 1kg)

Base recipe:

  • 4 cups (360g) wholegrain rolled oats  
  • 4 cups (80g) wholegrain puffed rice  
  • ¾ cup (140g) soft and juicy dried figs, chopped  
  • ¾ cup (140g) dried apricots, chopped  
  • 1½ cups (225g) nut and seed mix  
  • 1/3 cup (65g) mixed chia seeds  
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon  

To serve (1 serving):

  • 100g fruit and nut muesli (base recipe) 
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat milk  
  • 1 tablespoon reduced fat plain Greek yoghurt  
  • Sliced red apple, chopped kiwi fruit and fresh passionfruit pulp (or fruit of your choice) 
  • (1/5 large apple, 1/5 kiwi fruit, 1 t passionfruit pulp) 
  1. Combine oats, puffed rice, figs, apricots, nut and seed mix, chia seeds and cinnamon in a large bowl. Transfer to a large airtight container. Store in a cool, dry cupboard for up to 1 month. 
  2. To serve, place muesli in bowl. Top with milk, yoghurt and fruit. 

Tips 

  • We used a nut and seed mix containing raw cashews, sunflower kernels, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds and pepitas. To toast for extra crunch and flavour, spread nut and seed mix over a baking tray and bake in 160C oven for 5-8 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. 
  • Vary the fresh fruit to serve as desired.  
  • Use a non-dairy milk and yoghurt, if preferred
