This delicious apple and cinnamon muesli has lightly toasted spices and oats with cinnamon coated apple chunks.
Here's a taster on what's at our breakfast table in the mornings: Homemade Apple and Cinnamon Muesli.
Autumn is apple time! My parent's section has a few apple trees with loads of apples each year.
I love finding ways to use and preserve them. If you know anything about me you'll know dehydration is my number one, favourite preserving method.
This recipe today is a simple toasted muesli with chunks of home dried, cinnamon coated apple pieces.
I've combined oats, coconut and sunflower seeds (though it could be any seeds of your choice) and coated them in a mixture of coconut oil, honey and a little salt and cinnamon. This I lightly toasted until golden.
The apple I cut into small chunks, coated in a little cinnamon and dried them in the dehydrator (oven works well too). Then they were added alongside half a cup of raisins.
Super simple and super delicious!
If apple isn't your thing, try this dried strawberry and macadamia muesli instead.
