Gluten-free Muesli

This light and nutty gluten-free muesli takes all of about 15 minutes to make and is much, much cheaper than buying gluten-free muesli from the shelves – and (I think) much yummier too!

You should be able to find quinoa and rice puffs in the gluten-free section of your supermarket, or visit a store like Huckleberry Farms or Farro if you can’t find them. A range of nuts is super tasty in this gluten-free muesli! If you’re diabetic or watching your sugar intake, you could decrease the amount of maple syrup and honey easily to a level that suits you – just taste as you go. If you can handle gluten, you could swap some or all of the quinoa and rice for rolled oats.This muesli will keep for a few weeks if stored well in an airtight container. I love mine with some thick, tart greek or coconut yoghurt and fresh fruit in the morning.


Print Recipe

  • coconut oil or macadamia nut oil 3 tablespoons (I used Ceres Organics coconut oil)
  • pure maple syrup 2 tablespoons
  • honey 2 tablespoons
  • ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon
  • vanilla extract 1 teaspoon (optional)
  • rice puffs 3 cups (I used Natures Path)
  • quinoa puffs 2 cups (I used Ceres Organics)
  • pumpkin seeds ½ cup
  • sunflower seeds ¼ cup
  • nuts 1 ½ cups chopped (I used a mix of almonds, walnuts and brazil nuts)
  • coconut chips ½ - ¾ cup, shavings or thread
  • dried fruit 1 cup chopped e.g. apricots, dates, cranberries, raisins, papaya, mango


Preheat oven to 180 degC/355 Fahrenheit. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

  1. Combine coconut or macadamia oil, maple syrup, honey, cinnamon and vanilla in a small pot and stir on low heat until melted.
  1. Toss melted mixture with the rice puffs, quinoa puffs, pumpkin seeds, sunflowers seeds and nuts, coating well. Transfer to lined oven tray and bake for 8-10 minutes, tossing a few times during cooking. Scatter over coconut chips and bake a further 2 minutes (time carefully to watch the coconut doesn’t burn).
  1. Remove muesli from oven and allow to cool before tossing with dried fruit. Store in an air-tight container.
