Slow Cooker Gluten Free Muesli
Peta really got me thinking about cooking muesli in the slow cooker. I thought I would give it a try, hoping that I would be able to share a great gluten free mix with you. While I was at it, I wanted to make it fructose free and nut free to accommodate for as many people as possible. I wanted to create something that my Mum (who is Coeliac) would enjoy. I wanted it to have a good combination of nutrients, a nice crunch factor and not cost the earth to make. I think this is a great combination - I’m thrilled to report a fabulous result. You can easily tweak the quantities as desired and add your favourite fruit and chopped nuts if your diet allows it. I found that cooking this as I made dinner was great timing as I could stir it whilst I was in the kitchen and turn off the slow cooker before bed so that it was ready for breakfast in the morning. - Bec
