Slow-cooked apple muesli with roasted nuts

30 October, 2017
Slow-cooked apple muesli

The perfect slow-cooked muesli

If you’re looking for a recipe that can be enjoyed hot, cold, as a breakfast, dessert or as a snack, then look no further! Our slow-cooked apple muesli is a healthy mix that tastes just as good as something naughty, and the mixture of sweet, soft apple, smoky, crunchy nuts and smooth muesli makes this a textural delight.

This recipe is suited to a 5-litre slow cooker, so feel free to chop and change the ingredients to suit your individual tastes!

Serves: One person for a week or six people at one sitting.

Ingredients:

  • 5 x green apples
  • 4 cups of your favourite muesli (can be substituted for oats or bran)
  • Macadamia milk (or other milk of your choice)
  • 300 grams of mixed nuts
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tsp olive oil/coconut oil

 
Method:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 150C
  • Core your apples and cut into generously-sized wedges (we’ve left the skin as it keeps all those sweet nutrients and has an amazing texture after it’s finished cooking)
  • Place nuts on foil lined braking tray
  • Brush olive oil/coconut oil around the base and halfway up the side of your slow cooker
  • Spread apple wedges evenly in the slow cooker
  • Pour muesli over the apples
  • When nuts are ready (when their aroma is starting to drive you crazy) take them out and spread them into the slow cooker
  • Pour in the milk in till it’s just covering the ingredients in the slow cooker
  • Sprinkle in cinnamon and brown sugar
  • Mix ingredients thoroughly
  • Pat the mixture down with a spatula until it’s level
  • Leave on low for 4-6 hours
  • Serve straight from the cooker or pack away in the fridge

Apples and cinnamon

Breakfast suggestions:

Served hot with a generous dollop of Greek yoghurt and drizzled with honey, this is a filling and healthy breakfast that will give you energy to face the day.

Dessert suggestions:

Served hot with a small spoon of ice cream or cream, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar or topped with dried fruits can provide a healthier alternative to most desserts.

Snack suggestions:

Served cold, straight from the fridge to your bowl!

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

What Our Members Think

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

What Our Members Think

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
