Cinnamon & Raisin Toasted Muesli

Thank you for all your questions and recipe requests, if you still haven't put one through you still have till tomorrow.

I will get to all of them in the next couple of weeks but for now I thought I'd try a variation on our porridge as the little ones are wanting a little more of an adventure with their breakfast.

Cinnamon & Raisin Toasted Muesli

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup raisins

  • Preheat oven at 180 C
  • in a large bowl combine oats and coconut and set aside
  • in a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, oil, honey and cinnamon and bring to the boil. remove from heat and stir in vanilla
  • pour over oat mixture and stir till coated
  • spread in a large shallow baking pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until golden, whilst stirring occasionally.
  • cool and then add raisins or whatever dried fruit you like, I added dried apricots as well.
  • store in an airtight container
This toasted muesli mix is also good to add to some plain yoghurt as an afternoon snack.

Hope you enjoy it, please let me know if you give it a try

That sounds yummy! Unfortunately I am allergic to coconut but maybe I could make it without.
