Recipe's preparation

    Preliminaries
  1. Preheat oven to 180 (160 fan forced).

    Place figs in TM bowl & chop 10 seconds/speed 5 or until the desired size (1cm pieces is good). Set aside.  

  2. Place sesame seeds, linseeds, & whole wattleseeds [if using] into the TM bowl.  Grind for 1 minute/speed 8.

  3. Dry Muesli Base
  4. Place all the dry muesli base ingredients (not the fruit yet) into the TM bowl with the ground seed mixture & mix 30 s/Counter-clockwise operation/Gentle stir setting, or until well blended.

  5. If you want natural muesli, not toasted, add the fruit now, mix it well & store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. If you want crunchy toasted muesli, do not add the fruit yet, but move on to the next steps for toasted muesli.

  6. Toasted Maple Wattlesed Muesli
  7. Mix maple syrup, oil, & essence lightly in a jar, bowl or measuring cup. Pour these liquids into the dry muesli mix in the TM bowl. Mix further 30 secs/ Counter-clockwise operation/ Gentle stir setting or until well blended.    

  8. Spread the toasting muesli mixture evenly over three pre-lined baking trays. Place the trays in pre-heated oven for 15- 20 minutes, checking after 5 minutes that it hasn't browned too quickly, & stirring & turning over with a fork after 10 minutes. It should be starting to colour very slightly after 15 minutes. 

  9. Remove from the oven. Stir the set aside fruit evenly through the trays of muesli & mix well & spread evenly again. Return the trays to the oven, stirring & checking the muesli every 5 minutes.

  10. When the almonds turn a very soft gold, remove from the oven. If it is cooked too long, till the almonds are brown, the muesli will be very crunchy [too crunchy!].

  11. Allow to cool, & store in an airtight container. Great served with milk, yoghurt, or cream & fresh fruit, or delicious even as a dry snack.

  12. Bircher Muesli
  13. Bircher Muesli: Bircher Muesli was designed around 1900 by Dr Bircher-Brenner to provide a delicious & nutritious meal which was easily tolerated by the infirm.

    Place 1 cored unpeeled apple & 1 peeled & seeded orange into the TM bowl. Chop 10 seconds/speed 4.

    Add one cup of the raw, untoasted muesli and add one tablespoon of lemon juice to the TM bowl & mix 20s/speed Gentle stir setting/Counter-clockwise operation. Refrigerate overnight.

    When ready to eat, add yoghurt, cream or milk, and you have a delicious breakfast designed to fulfill all of your nutritional needs in an easily digested form.

Tip

This muesli can be eaten as raw muesli, or as bircher or toasted muesli. Raw muesli maintains the freshest ingredients, but toasting draws the richest flavour from the ingredients. If you toast it too long and it is too crunchy, simply pour a little milk into it as you serve it to soften the crunch.

Wattleseed is the seed of the wattle tree (acacia trees). I think it has a flavour somewhere between vanilla, coffee & hazelnut. It is delicious, but if you don't make it from your own tree, it can be expensive to buy! It is available at specialist food supply stores, or from "Herbies" in Balmain. www.herbies.com.au. PS I don't make it from my own trees!
