Homemade toasted muesli

Muesli in little bowls

Toasted muesli is commonly made with oil and sugar. Not this version! Thanks to coconut cream and brown rice syrup (low GI, a little processed yes, though much better than sugar!)

My husband Ben loves toasted muesli! He used to live off of Weetbix prior to meeting me! Once I came on the scene the Weetbix became organic Weetbix lol!

Feel free to add desiccated coconut, other dried fruit.. whatever you fancy really!
