This muesli is a very healthy way to start the day and it certainly beats anything you can buy in the supermarket.



Serves 6


160g almonds

160g macadamia nuts

100g buckwheat

75g sunflower seeds

75g pumpkin seeds

40g sesame seeds

2 tablespoons chia seeds

120g goji berries

2 pink lady apples peeled, cored and roughly chopped

80ml coconut oil

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon vanilla powder

1 teaspoon ground ginger

Pinch sea salt

Honey to taste

65g shredded coconut



  • Place the nuts, buckwheat and seeds in a large bowl, cover with room temperature water and soak for 7 hours.  In the meantime place the goji berries in a small bowl, add just enough water to cover and soak overnight.
  • The following day preheat your oven to 50 ͦc or as low as it will go and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Drain the nuts, buckwheat and seeds and rinse well.  Dry thoroughly using paper towel and process in a food processor until you reach your desired texture then transfer to another bowl.
  • Drain the goji berries and place in the food processor with the apple, coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla powder, ginger, salt and honey and process to a fine puree.
  • Combine the 2 mixtures in a large bowl and stir well.  Spread out on the prepared tray and place in the oven for 6 – 8 hours until toasted carefully tossing it every couple of hours.
  • Remove the muesli from the oven and allow to cool before breaking into bite size pieces.  Combine with the shredded coconut and store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.
  • Serve your muesli with almond milk for a delicious breakfast
