Gluten Free Natural Muesli

Gluten Free Natural Muesli

It’s Sunday morning and I’ve just gotten back from running some errands. The kids are at their grandparents and my husband is out, so it’s my perfect opportunity to peruse the cupboard to see how our food situation is going. Things are looking a little bare and it becomes immediately apparent that I need to make some breakfast fare for us for the week ahead.


I have all of the ingredients I need to make up a Gluten Free Natural Muesli with nuts and dates. I always have lots of nuts, coconut, dried dates and sweet spices like cinnamon and vanilla in my cupboard! I’ve been wanting to make a recipe like this so I can use up some extra puffed brown rice and puffed buckwheat kernels that have been in the cupboard for a while. Thanks to my amazing Thermomix, I was able to whip up this recipe in a few minutes.

The dried dates and vanilla powder provide just the right amount of sweetness to the muesli. The nuts give it some crunch and the puffed brown rice and puffed buckwheat kernels go deliciously soft when you add your choice of non-dairy milk. I made up a batch of fresh almond milk yesterday and this was just beautiful in this muesli. I topped my Gluten Free Natural Muesli with some chopped banana, some goji berries, a tiny sprinkle of chia seeds and a very light drizzle of raw honey. Super yummy and so much tastier and cheaper than any store bought gluten free muesli I have tried.
