Apricot Honey-Nut Muesli

Dr. Kimberley O'Brien Breakfast, Snacks 6 Comments

This muesli makes a delicious substitute for conventional breakfast cereals.  I like to serve it with almond milk and chopped apples or fresh berries.  The density of nuts and seeds in this recipe makes this recipe a great choice for a pre- or post-workout snack. I love this muesli because it is packed full of fibre, which helps with detoxification by promoting the excretion of toxins and excess hormones.  Additionally the nuts and seeds are a source of healthy fats, which nourish your skin, normalize blood sugar and keep your cardiovascular system healthy….

This muesli makes a delicious substitute for conventional breakfast cereals.  I like to serve it with almond milk and chopped apples or fresh berries.  The density of nuts and seeds in this recipe makes this recipe a great choice for a pre- or post-workout snack.  It is also an easy breakfast or snack to pack for camping, road trips and hotel travel.  Sticking to a healthy and allergen free diet is possible with a bit of extra planning and preparation!

I love this muesli because it is packed full of fibre, which helps with detoxification by promoting the excretion of toxins and excess hormones.  Additionally the nuts and seeds are a source of healthy fats, which nourish your skin, normalize blood sugar and keep your cardiovascular system healthy.   Nuts and seeds are also a great source of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin-E, which is a potent anti-oxidant and contributes to a healthy cardiovascular system.  This recipe involves lightly roasting the nuts and seeds to accentuate the flavour, but caution not to over-brown the muesli as this will decrease the quality of the natural oils.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!  Please leave your comments below.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 4 cups oats (old fashioned, certified gluten free)
  2. ½ cup cashews, chopped
  3. 1 cup pecans, chopped
  4. 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  5. ½ cup sunflower seeds
  6. ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  7. 1 cup shredded coconut
  8. ¼ cup of honey
  9. 2/3 cup of avocado oil
  10. ¾ cup dried Turkish apricots (unsulphured), chopped
  11. 1/2 cup - 1 cup of raisins
Instructions
  1. Turn the oven on to 350°F.
  2. Combine the oats, nuts and seeds in a large bowl (leave out the apricots and raisins).
  3. Whisk together the honey and avocado oil and pour over the mixture, stirring and combining well.
  4. Pour the mixture into baking pans, layering it no more than 1-2 inches deep. I used two baking dishes that were approximately 7×12 inches. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until lightly toasted.
  5. Once cool, add the raisins and apricots. Stir to combine, and store in an airtight container.
  6. Serve with your favourite nut milk, optionally also adding berries or sliced fruit!

  1. Apricots for breakfast sound so good! I really should try this, since I just bought another bag of dried apricots at Costco. I can just imagine how good a bowl of this would taste with almond milk!
