this recipe for chai roasted muesli is so great for autumn morning breakfast with the warming flavours of the chai spices. and it’s super easy to make too. i like making a lot at once and have it with my oat milk for breakfast, in my smoothie bowl for lunch, or just grabbing a handful straight out of the jar as a snack.

this is also a nut-free and gluten-free version (as long as your using gluten-free oats), so it’s allergy friendly. and packed with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats and fibre – from the sunflower and flax seeds, dried fruit, oats and puffed rice.
roasting the muesli gives it a deeper flavour, and chewier consistency.

  4. Is it possible to swap the puffed rice for something else? They’re really hard to find and expensive where I live
