Here is a good recipe for muesli without honey. Feel free to change the nuts and fruit to whatever you happen to have in your store cupboard. There are so many seeds and nuts in it (unlike the forlorn culinary treasure hunt you have to do with shop-bought) that you might end up chirping cheerfully like a bird throughout the morning. I served this at a pop-up restaurant I ran at Bestival music festival and people came up to me saying it was without a doubt the best muesli they’d ever eaten. This will last up to 2 months in a dry place.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125ml nut oil, such as almond or hazelnut
150ml maple syrup or agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
500g rolled oats
50g pecan nuts, roughly chopped
150g hazelnuts, roughly chopped
75g pumpkin seeds
75g sunflower seeds
50g golden linseed
100g desiccated coconut
300g mixed dried fruit, chopped if large, such as dates, figs, apricots, raisins, sultanas, cranberries, mulberries, sour cherries, blueberries

To serve:

Quantity Ingredient
soya, rice, oat or nut milk
fresh fruit, such as sliced bananas

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  2. Put the oil, maple syrup or agave nectar and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over a low heat and gently melt together.
  3. Mix the oats, nuts, seeds and coconut together in a large bowl. Pour over the melted oil mixture and stir really well to ensure all the dry ingredients are evenly coated.
  4. Divide the mixture between 2 large baking trays and spread it out in an even layer. Bake in the oven for 20–25 minutes, tossing every 5 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays, stirring every now and then. (If you transfer it to a deep bowl while still warm, it will go soggy.)
  5. Once completely cool, transfer to a large bowl and stir in your choice of dried fruits. Serve with the dairy-free milk of your choice and top with fresh fruit.
