Low Carb Muesli

This is an image of low carb muesli

SERVES 2 (wheat, dairy and yeast free GLs per serving = 4)

Chewy and satisfying, this muesli is lower in carbohydrates than the classic type, as it features more nuts and seeds than grains, and no dried fruit (which is very high in sugar). It is also wheat- and sugar-free, unlike most of the bought varieties, but you can use a little xylitol (a natural sugar derived from plants) to sweeten it if you like.

100g whole oat flakes
50g ground almonds
2 Tbsp. pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp. walnuts, roughly chopped
2 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
2 tsp xylitol (optional)

Stir all the ingredients together until well mixed.

Serve with a tablespoon of berries per person, and a small pot of live natural yogurt or soy yogurt, or soy milk or nut milk (total GLs = 10).

Variations: Vary the nuts and seeds (pecans or hazelnuts would work well instead of the walnuts).
