Toasted Muesli

()
Welcome » Toasted Muesli

Toasted Muesli (MUSE-lee) is an incredibly popular Australian breakfast staple. The first time I joined Mark in Sydney for a temporary relocation, we lived at the Westin for well over a month. Every morning the club lounge served a bountiful breakfast bar, but gradually we found ourselves drawn to this healthy choice. Served over yogurt, it is a perfect start to the day.

Australians enjoy raw and toasted muesli, but we prefer the toasted because its crunch plays nicely against smooth, cool yogurt. For extra flavor, spoon a little fresh or stewed stone fruits on top.

WHAT YOU NEED WHAT TO DO WHY
  • Parchment paper
Line 2 half sheet pans; set aside. Center an oven rack; preheat to 400°F Convection (verify with an oven thermometer). Meanwhile… Internal oven thermostats are often improperly calibrated.
  • 8 cups oats, rolled, old-fashioned
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, ground
In a 5-quart bowl, whisk all together to eliminate any brown sugar clumps. Oats are full of fiber. Light or dark brown sugar work well for this recipe.
  • 3 tablespoons butter, unsalted, cut into pieces
    3 tablespoons honey
In a 1-quart tri-ply saucepan over low heat, melt butter (~2 minutes), swirling the pan occasionally. Stir in the honey and drizzle over oatmeal; massage until evenly coated (~1 minute). Spread loosely and evenly over prepared pans. Bake until amber (~9 minutes) stirring halfway through. Move pan to a wire rack. Cool uncovered. Swirling redistributes heat. Melting butter in a pan is safer than in the microwave, which often causes steam bursts. Butter and honey are easier to distribute when warm. Stirring assists even baking. Cooling uncovered promotes evaporation.
  • ½ cup mixed dried fruit, such as raisins, blueberries, apricots, apples, cranberries, Sultanas (white raisins), flaked coconut
Add a wide variety, in any combination. Fruit adds a natural sweetness to muesli.
  • ¼ cup hulled pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup chopped cashews
Toss into muesli. For maximum freshness, encase in freezer bags marked with date and contents. Defrost in original bags at room temperature, or use still frozen. Seeds and nuts add protein, making this a hearty breakfast.

Additional Testing Notes: There is no point in adding wheat bran; the mixture is too lean to hold it in suspension.
