  • 1 cup mixed nuts unsalted
  • 1 cup Australian macadamias
  • 1/2 cup pepitas (pumpkin seed kernels)
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed kernels
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes organic
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 2 tbsp macadamia oil (or coconut oil)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup pure

  • 1/2 cup almond milk or plant based milk of choice


  • Pre-heat fan-forced oven to 150°C.

  • Add cinnamon and sea salt and mix.
  • Spread mixture evenly in single layer onto a lined oven tray (or over 2 trays) and bake in oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Check after halfway to ensure muesli is not burning and mix around.
