Banana Coconut Muesli

Muesli is one of those foods that everyone automatically thinks of as healthy.  But it’s not always the case.
Commercial muesli can have tonnes of added sugar and fat.  Because I love muesli so much, I decided to share this banana coconut muesli recipe with you that has no added sugar.  Instead, it’s sweetened with… you guessed it, banana!

Ingredients

  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 banana ripe, mashed
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celcius
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and salt.
  • Add the mashed banana and extra virgin olive oil into the bowl with the oat mixture. Use a spoon to stir until all is very well combined. The mixture should be evenly coated.
  • Spread mixture in an even layer on a large lined baking tray. Press down slightly and place in oven.
  • Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, checking a tossing every 15 minutes. Break up large clusters as necessary. Once the muesli is evenly browned and no longer feels damp, remove from oven. As it cools it will crisp up even more, so do not over-bake.
  • Once cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week. Or store in the freezer to a few months.
