The last week saw me disappear from the blogosphere and I seem to have missed out a lot of action and lot of mouth watering recipes too. I guess it is going to take me a lot of time to browse through all of them. In all this confusion, I had also forgotten about the Blog Hop Wednesdays started by Radhika. So yesterday, I hopped onto Swetha's space and was utterly confused at the mouth watering recipes. I finally settled in for this easy-peasy muesli which was on my to-do list for a long time.

I had many granola recipes in mind with different combinations of ingredients but all of them were to be baked in the oven. Now that was surely going to take up a lot of my time which is a scarce commodity these days. But when I realized that this particular recipe was made in the microwave, I made it right away and was very much pleased with the result. 

My husband has asked me to make a bigger batch of this so he could take it to his work place and have this for a snack :). In spite of so many interesting (read healthy) ingredients in it, I am happy to get such a compliment from him. 

Muesli


Recipe Source - here
Ingredients - 

Rolled Old fashioned Oats 1 1/2 cups
Grated Coconut 5Tbsp (I used dry coconut)
Wheat Germ 5 Tbsp
Sun Flower Seeds 2 Tbsp
Flax seeds 1 Tbsp
Sesame Seeds 2 Tbsp (I used white sesame)
Mixed Nuts chopped handful (I used Cashews, Walnuts, Almonds and Pista)

Raisins handful
Dried sweetened cranberry handful
(Add any other dried fruit of your choice like apricot, figs, dates etc.)

Apple Grated 5 Tbsp (1 small apple)
Cinnamon powder generous pinch
Nutmeg Powder generous pinch
Agave Nectar (Or Honey) 4 Tbsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Vanilla essence 1 tsp (Optional - I didn't use it)

Muesli

Method Of Preparation - 

In a microwave safe bowl (I used a glass bowl) add the grated apple and cook for a minute or until the apple becomes mushy.

Add agave nectar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg powders and gently mix them. Cook the mixture until it boils. It me about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile in another mixing bowl, add the oats, coconut, wheat germ, sun flower seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds and the mixed nuts. Mix them well and transfer them into the apple mixture. 

Mix well until the oats mixture is well coated with the apple mixture. The resultant mixture should resemble bread crumbs.

Evenly spread in a microwave safe bowl, and cook in 1 minute increments until the mixture turns golden brown and gets a crisp texture.  It took me about 6-7 minutes.

Let it cool and store in an air tight container. It is recommended that you store it in the refrigerator because of the addition of apple.

Serve it as breakfast with milk or eat it as is like a mid-day snack like we do !!
