Episode 3 of my Intrepid Search for the Perfect Toasted Muesli:
This one has a lovely summer hit with the toasted bananas
and I adore dried peaches any old time.
I am attempting to source locally grown ingredients
so the Australian Pecans tick that box.
Cardamom? Not local but gorgeous, nonetheless.



4 cups rolled oats

3/4 cup pecans, toasted + chopped

1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted

1 cup rice bran cereal

1/2 tsp ground cardamom

1 pinch salt

1/2 cup golden syrup

1/2 cup honey

3/4 cup dried peaches, chopped

1/2 cup dried bananas


1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C.

2. Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

3. Place oats, pecans, seeds, rice bran and cardamom onto tray.

4. Drizzle golden syrup + honey over the mixture, mix and bake for 30 minutes,
stirring occasionally, until golden and toasted.

5. Toss with the dried peaches + bananas. Allow to cool.

6. Store in an airtight container. Serve as preferred, perhaps with chilled milk, thick natural yoghurt, freshly sliced nectarine.
