Make your own muesli with MuesliMixer
I was lucky enough to receive a sample of my very own blend of muesli from MuesliMixer, a company which allows you to create your own customised muesli from over 55 ingredients.
I had heard of MuesliMixer before but never got around to designing and ordering my own muesli. However with the lack of good gluten free muesli’s around this seemed like a great idea.
MuesliMixer has two types of gluten free bases, free and c’crunchy (rice puffs, rice flakes and sunflower seeds with a pinch of cinnamon) and free and tasty (rice flakes, puffed amaranth and buckwheat) and a number of glutenous options. I decided to go for the free and c’crunchy as I looooove cinnamon.
There are a number of fruit, nuts and seeds and extra options (both gluten free and not) to add to your muesli base. I choose apple, cinnamon roasted almonds (to continue on with the cinnamon theme) and linseeds for extra fibre. The process is so easy and at the ‘add to cart’ stage of the ordering process you even get the option to name your muesli.
All up my muesli cost $12.02 + $5.49 shipping which makes it quite a lot more expensive than buying muesli off the shelf at the supermarket, however note that the gluten free muesli base is almost double the price of those glutenous bases.
I was very impressed with the delivery time having put my order in on the 21st November and receiving my muesli on the 24th. Opening up the package I found an additional bag of peanuts with the label ‘try some pretty peanuts – and maybe order them the next time ’. This is such a creative concept which I love!
So the verdict on the taste of the muesli? Delicious! There was the perfect amount of cinnamon in the base mix and the cinnamon roasted almonds gave it that extra kick. The only thing that I would change is that next time I would order twice as many almonds because they taste so good!
I am always on the look out for original and different presents for people and I think this would be a great idea especially for friends/family who are gluten intolerant (if you want to order someone some muesli for Christmas you can add a gift tag).
The creative ideas from MuesliMixer don’t stop there! If you love the muesli you made and want to re-order they even give you a code on the back of your packet to do so.
I love this concept and am excited to make other flavour combinations.
What would you include in your personalised muesli?

I’m back… and I am going to start making up for my absense with this amazing recipe for gluten free banoffee pie. Since moving to London I haven’t done much baking except when I went through a phase of making gluten free banana bread (recipe to come). However more recently I moved house and my

I used to eat at Wagamama all the time and loved it. But after being diagnosed with coeliac disease I visited Wagamama in Sydney and found out that I could only eat one item on the menu and it was far from the best dish I had had there. So I didn’t go back for

Just when you thought there could not be anymore restaurants in Banff with gluten free options. I have one more for now… and it’s a good one. It took me 10 months of living in Banff and finally in my last month of living there I got around to visiting Nourish. I had been told

I absolutely love Mexican food. The great thing about Mexican is that they often use corn tortilla’s and if not they usually at least have them as an option. So it is not surprising that after the first visit to Baja Cantina in Glebe, where they give you the option of corn or flour tortilla’s,

As I have mentioned before there are a number of places with gluten free options in Banff, and The Elk and Oarsman Pub & Grill is no exception to this. I was very excited to find that The Elk & Oarsman actually have a separate two page (!!) gluten free menu. I usually go to the

There is a really awesome website in Canada, Well.ca, which has a great selection of gluten free foods and delivery is free! Whilst there is a pretty good selection of gluten free foods available at the two supermarkets in Banff there are some things I just cannot get my hands on. For these products I

I saw an advertisement on TV for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise with this recipe. Whilst it sounded, let’s say interesting, I was intrigued and had to try it. The first time I tried this recipe I bought some gluten free rice crumbs but I found them too crunchy with an almost sand type texture. The next time

One night I had planned to make the chickpea curry I saw on Scandi Foodie’s blog however I left the recipe at work (and I didn’t have internet at home at the time) so I had to put my thinking cap on to try and remember the ingredients for this recipe. Then I realised that

This was another daily deal site purchase – a voucher for a meal at Sugar Lounge at Manly Beach. A couple of friends and I headed down one sunny Sydney day to indulge in some fancy food and drink (well fancier than most of my dining out choices). First things first – cocktails! I went for

I have to say I go through my stages with green tea. There are times when I drink it quite often and then I usually go off it again. One of the things that puts me off is that if you don’t brew it for the exact right amount of time it can taste really
