I am at my mum and dad’s pad for a week’s holiday. Honey Boo Boo sums this up nicely:

You got that right, boo.

I am lucky to have a mamma who shares my passion for weird healthy food, so I often arrive to a Willy Wonka-esque, fully stocked pantry (that is if Willy Wonka were of the health-food-junkie persuasion, instead of a mildly psychotic chocolatier). Mum’s latest find and creation is a recipe for homemade muesli, inspired by her quest to eat foods that lower cholesterol. Enter: oats. Sarah of My New Roots sheds some light on how these little flaky wonders go about lowering cholesterol levels in this post, if you want a little more insight.

This recipe uses plain oats as its base, and combined with everything else, it makes for a very simple but delicious, sugar free, nutrient-packed breakfast (or lunch or dinner. I ain’t judging) that has kept me full and raring with energy each morning that I’ve had it. So thanks mamma!

The amounts listed below are only rough estimates – you can swap/change/add/deduct amounts as you please, depending on your own preferences.

Mamma’s muesli (vegan, sugar free)

3 cups rolled oats

3 heaped tablespoons cinnamon (this sounds like a lot, but we love us some cinnamon. It packs a flavourful punch, and means that the sugar or sugar substitutes you’d normally find in muesli aren’t needed in this recipe)

½ cup almonds

½ cup hazelnuts

½ cup pumpkin seeds

½ cup sunflower seeds

½ cup goji berries

½ cup dried cherries (or dried fruit of your choice)

Mix it all up in a bowl and you’re done! For an extra nutritious kick, grab yourself a bowlful and soak it over night.

Pair it with your favourite nut milk, or if you’re feeling extra lush, heap it over an acai bowl or green smoothie. I also like mine served with a tablespoon or two of LSA. Enjoy : )
