Fig, honey & salted pistachio raw muesli l a splash of vanillaI know, I know, I posted a granola recipe a couple of weeks back but have I ever said on here how much I love salted pistachios?  I’m a little bit obsessed actually.  Give me a big bowl of dry roasted, salted pistachios and I’ll sit on the lounge happily shelling and eating them like a squirrel.

So anyway, because we all love salty/sweet things now, I thought it would be ace to add some salted pistachios to raw muesli with honey and dried figs, which are basically meant for each other.  This is also a convenient, fast breakfast because you only need a splash of milk basically, however like most mueslis/granolas, Greek yoghurt and fresh fruit are always a good idea.

And don’t worry, it’s not salty as such (that would be weird!), the pistachios merely add a lovely contrast to the sweet, chewy fruit and honey.

  1. Oh yummy!!!
    This looks so tasty. I love the salt sweet combo. And I like to think I was ahead of the crowd as I used to put chocolate spread on my toast and then sprinkle over sea salt when I was at uni and that was a very long time ago!!! 😉

    Pinning this one 🙂
