As many of you would be aware, I buy most of my dry goods from the bulk bins at Simply Good. This means I can buy as much or as little of an item as want with no packaging and no waste. This is a topic dear to my heart and one which is being encouraged during ‘Plastic-Free July’. I use re-usable mesh bags for things like dried fruit, seeds and nuts and reuse paper bags for flours and almond meal. Once I get home they are decanted into storage jars.
These are the ingredients I use to make my gluten-free muesli. You can adjust the quantities to suit yourself.
3 cups coconut
3 cups pumpkin seeds
3 cups sunflower seeds
3 cups almonds (roughly chopped) – I use the food processor
2 cups sultanas
2 cups flaxseed meal
1/4 cup cinnamon
Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
I store my mix in a large airtight container.
To serve – I use 1/4 cup of muesli and add 1 dessertspoon each of chia seeds and psyllium husk. I usually add 1 apple (grated) and 1 kiwifruit (chopped) plus a spoonful of plain yoghurt. It makes a delicious and satisfying breakfast.
Great idea to use paper packets; I was at SG last week, grappling with how many plastic bags it took to get all my bits and pieces. Thank you for the tip.
Barb, glad to be of help. 🙂
Sounds like a sustaining and healthy muesli

Thanks, Alexa. I love my muesli so when I started eating gluten-free I experimented to come up with an alternative. I find it very satisfying.
