It’s that time of year when many of us wake back up to our health goals before we end up on the beach or near the pool. The first thing that needs to change other than going for that run or lifting weights in the gym is to look at your food. One of the easiest meals to change is breakfast and this recipe makes that very easy. Preparing your own food is the best way to make sure that you are getting all of the nutrients you need to get the day going in the right direction. Our Homemade Muesli & Berry Breakfast is a great base for an even better breakfast.

This recipe focuses on the base for your morning meals by letting you create some deliciously crunchy muesli clusters. The half cup of muesli portion is only 266 calories, giving you room to add other ingredients depending on your allowance. The Homemade Muesli & Berry Breakfast suits almost anybody’s diet, from vegan, vegetarian to any dairy consumers. Just add your preferred medium like milk, plant-based milk, yoghurt, etc. Remember to check the calorie count of the extra ingredients if you ad them.

Ingredients

  • 3 ½ cups oats

  • ½ cup ground flaxseeds

  • 1 ½ cups almonds, raw

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup olive oil (choose a mild flavour profile, or substitute avocado oil)

  • ½ cup honey or maple syrup

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and stir to combine. Add the remaining ingredients, and stir well.
  • Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet and press down with the back of the spoon to compact the mixture. Bake until lightly golden brown (about 21 – 24 minutes).
  • Remove from the oven, and leave to cool completely undisturbed (this will ensure you get nice clusters). Once cooled, break the chunks apart and store them in an airtight container.
  • Serve ½ cup per portion topped with your favourite milk (or yoghurt) and fruit.
