Toasted Muesli

Vegan, Low Protein (PKU) and Dairy Free

My husband loves Toasted Muesli. So much so that he orders it at cafes. (Which I find a bit strange because he has it nearly every day at home.) It is so easy to make, that you won’t want to waste money on pre-made / prepackaged muesli any longer.

This recipe is easily adaptable to suit food sensitivities. If you want to go gluten-free, substitute the oats for quinoa or amaranth flakes. Low-Fructose, omit the raisins and currants. To make it even easier to digest, use activated nuts.
