Tropical Toasted Museli

I love the crunch of toasted museli and like to make it at home using apple juice and honey. It is yummiest with really cold milk, topped with chopped fresh fruit and a dollop of fruit yoghurt. But its also good sprinkled on top of a bowl of bircher oats or porridge or just plain yogurt. The only problem is that Tom loves it too and he can eat faster than me.

I make it with a tropical twist partly because I love the macadamias and partly because I compulsively buy little packets of dried pineapple, papaya and mango from Aldi. I cannot go in there without coming out with another packet.

This is a very flexible recipe. You could use vegetable oil or no oil instead of the coconut oil. You could use more or less or different fruits and nuts and seeds. If you want it sweeter just add sugar to the juice mixture to taste. You could also add some salt.

1 cup finely sliced mixed dried fruit (mango, pineapple, papaya and banana)
100 grams shredded coconut extra

Pour juice mixture over oat mixture and mix well.

When cool combine oats in a large bowl with nuts, fruit and extra coconut
Store in an airtight container and if necessary hidden from other householders.
