I love making my own muesli whether its bircher, museli, rawnola or granola. I like to know exactly what is in it and be able to switch up the nuts, seeds, fruits and, like now, add chocolate to keep my work day breakfasts interesting.
Ingredients 4 c rolled oats
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/4 c sesame seeds
1/2 c shredded coconut
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 c almonds
3 tbsp agave or honey (more if you like a sweeter cereal)
1 egg white
Pinch of salt (optional)
Place the oats, coconut, sesame seeds and chopped nuts in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl mix together the coconut oil, juiced orange and cocoa then add it to the bowl of dry ingredients.
Whisk up the egg white until it is light and fluffy and pour over the mix.
Mix well then pour onto a lined baking tray.
Bake in the oven at 180C for 40-50 minutes. If you like your granola in big clusters like me use a spatula to flip the granola over at the 20 minute mark. If you like it all crumbly then stir with a wooden spoon every 10 minutes or so.
The granola is ready when the kitchen starts to smell like jaffa!
