1. Take a pan and roast finely chopped almonds, chopped walnuts, & chopped cashew on a medium flame for about 3-4 minutes.
(If you want you can add Sunflower seed, Pumpkin seed just add them in the pan and roast).
2.Now take another pan or the same pan you just used and throw in those 2 cups full of oats and start roasting them on medium flame till you can see the oat’s color changing.
from white —to— slightly brown
take them off the stove.
3. Take a bowl full of roasted oats and add in those roasted almonds, walnut & cashew, and start mixing.
4. Now we’re going to add 150 grams of raisins and 150 grams of Deseeded dates but first take a knife and chop deseeded dates into smaller pieces.
5. Add 2-3 tablespoons of honey or jaggery syrup into the bowl and mix well.
6. Transfer the content of the bowl into a flat dry container and spread it so quickly it can dry itself.
Great!!! your homemade muesli is ready.
Store it in an airtight dry container so it will last up to 1 month.
You can eat muesli with milk, curd, or ice-cream it’s up to you but I would recommend avoiding muesli with ice-cream cause then what would be the point of eating healthy.
Now if you want to customize your muesli you can add fruits of your like for example Banana, Apple, pomegranate, etc.
Get creative yourself.
