This is a gluten free muesli mix that I developed over the last 25 years. All ingredients have their own purpose. In the first place, I'm not a fan of "granola". Sure enough, granola itself is tastier than plain old muesli because it contains lots of sugar. And it doesn't matter whether it's refined white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, honey, maple syrup, agave syrup or rice syrup. Sugar is sugar - it's a consiment, not something we should ingest in larger quantities than one or two teaspoons per day. The exception are fruits. Sugar in fruits comes along with lots of fibres which make us process the sugar more slowly. Above that, we barely will be able to get as much sugar eating fruits as we get by eating sweets and drinking sodas or fruit juices. This muesli is a balanced blend of gluten free grains, dried fruit, protein sources and essential fatty acids. Don't use sweetened cereals for this muesli! It gets a natural sweetness from the maca powder, dried fruits and the liquid.
