Muesli – a great way to start the day
One of Oscar’s favourite breakfast options is muesli. We make our own muesli as all of the commercially available ones contain at least one ingredient he can’t have. I make a large batch, about 8 cups, which lasts for months in an airtight container. Oscar loves this so much he will eat it dry, without milk.
A great tasting, low salicylate home made muesli, free of preservatives and additives.
- 3 cups Rolled oats
- 1 cup Processed bran
- 1 cup Special K
- 1 cup Puffed rice
- 2 Shredded wheat biscuits (broken into small pieces)
- 1 cup Cashews (finely chopped)
- 1 cup Dried fruit - Apple, Pear, Banana, Paw Paw (chopped into small pieces)
- 1 tablespoon White sugar
- 1 tablespoon Brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons Sunflower Oil
||Toast the oats by placing them in a hot non-stick frying pan and stirring until they are golden brown. Allow to cool. |
For a sweeter muesli, or if you can’t use dried fruit, mix 1 tablespoon white sugar and 1 tablespoon brown sugar with the oats before toasting them. You can also add 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil for a slightly different flavour.
||Combine the oats with the remaining ingredients and store in an airtight container. |
Low Salicylate / Low Chemical, High Amines if using dried paw paw or banana, Moderate Salicylates if using dried apple
Refer to basics page for making your own dried fruit or the shopping list for commercially available preservative and additive free dried fruit.
