Gluten Free Muesli
I’ve started to eat a low gluten diet as well as low sugar diet recently for various reasons. I’m having to cook for someone who has a low gluten tolerance so it makes sense to cook the same things for both of us, and I don’t really eat much gluten either, so I’m killing two birds with one stone.
I wanted to share this really REALLY easy way to make your own gluten free muesli at home, instead of spending big bucks on the stuff from the supermarket. It always amazes me how expensive these things are, when they really don’t have to be.
All you need to make some gluten free muesli are a few basics;
- gluten free oats (these aren’t much more expensive than normal oats if you buy from the right places. Try your local health food store or sometimes supermarkets can have it on offer)
I always keep a good mix of nuts and seeds in my store cupboard because I use them for all sorts of cooking, breakfasts, salads, in sauces… etc! So i’d always recommend you buy a larger stack as they are cheaper and you can use them in all your cooking, ensuring you’re getting a good balance of micro nutrients.
So how do you make gluten free muesli?
On a baking tray spread out 2 large handfuls of gluten free oats, 1 handful of pecan nuts and 1 table spoon of pumpkin seeds.
Set your oven to 180oC and bake your oats for 15 minutes or until golden.
Allow to cool and store in a large, air tight jar and this breakfast cereal will last for a while!
