Cocoa Nibbed Muesli

Breakfast | 8th October 2009 | By

In a bid to have a slightlier healthier breakfast in the mornings than our normal toast, I thought it was time to make muesli again. This time though I wanted to add some highly nutritious cocoa nibs which have the added bonus of giving a nice chocolatey crunch.

Here’s how:
  • Toasted 1lb of rolled oats in oven 175C until very slightly brown and smelling nutty – left to cool.
  • Toasted 6oz mixed nuts (walnuts, brazils and hazelnuts) chopped into pieces in oven at same temperature for about 10 mins – left to cool.
  • Toasted 4oz mixed sunflower and pumpkin seeds in oven at same temperature for about 5 mins – left to cool.
  • Spooned these into a large jar, then added: 2oz cocoa nibs, 1 tbsp pollen, 2oz raisins, 2oz dried papaya chunks, 2oz dried pineapple and 2oz goji berries.
  • Gave jar a jolly good shake until all nicely mixed together.
Delicious eaten with yogurt or with kefir, especially if left to soak for a while. As you can see from the, admittedly not so great picture, inroads have already been made on this batch!

    Thanks Dan – what a great idea for a site. I’ve left a comment there already for someone, though didn’t find anything about cooking. Will have to explore some more.

    Ah I just made a cocoa nibbed muesli recently (new year detox!) and it was rather good. Mine was very simple as I’m not a huge fan of dried fruit. Actually the recipe came from Willie’s Chocolate Factory Cookbook.

    So delicious – sometimes muesli is just too virtuous…

    Muesli Lover – unless smothered in cream as in birchermuesli that I used to eat in Switzerland!
