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.
- 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
- 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
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.
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.
Served cold, straight from the fridge to your bowl!
