Warning, the following nut muesli recipe is not only healthy but highly addictive!
This nut muesli really rocks! A low-carbohydrate diet doesn’t have to mean giving up on everything that’s good. In this post, I will show you the most delicious nut muesli recipe – with an addictive factor!
With the right foods, you can prepare a much more vital and nutritious breakfast, which will also give you a lot more energy.
Admittedly, a low-carbohydrate diet doesn’t look very attractive at the beginning: What should I eat now? No bread and pasta? No cereal?
I can calm you down, because there are numerous alternatives with which you can create a much more nutritious and vital low carb breakfast, so you get an optimal start to the day.
For this, I would like to introduce you to a nut muesli today, which is also suitable for Paleo.
First, I start with some know-how about nuts.
Facts about nuts
The nut muesli is particularly popular among Paleo fans. Nuts provide good fats, high-quality protein and many vitamins.
An overwhelming number of studies prove the health benefits of nuts. This is how they reduce cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.
This is why nuts have numerous protective effects with regard to the development of diseases: they reduce the risk of cancer mortality by 18 percent. They also reduce the likelihood of developing heart disease (24 percent) or stroke (11 percent).
Beware of phytates in a nut cereals
However, nuts have a small drawback: nuts contain phytates. These reduce the bioavailability of the nutrients from the foods you eat.
If you consume too many phytate-containing foods, you could develop nutrient deficits because absorption in the intestine is impaired.
Phytates are, therefore, among the anti-nutrients. They influence the absorption of iron, zinc or calcium.
However, this doesn’t matter if you keep two things in mind:
1- Limit the consumption of nuts to 20-30 grams per day.
2- You should only use nuts in a meal or as a snack to limit the influence of the phytates on that particular food.
As always, the dose makes the poison, i.e. everything we consume chronically in large quantities can also have negative effects. This also applies to nuts and our nut muesli recipe.
Variation for a wider range of nutrients
In the end, nuts captivate with their outstanding nutrient profile and are essential to a balanced diet.
Each nut has different characteristics and can spice up your nutrient balance with different minerals and vitamins. Ultimately, of course, it is also a matter of taste which varieties you prefer.
Therefore, it is another tip that you vary the types of nuts: walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, Brazil nuts or pecans have different nutrient profiles.
So almonds and cashews contain the most protein, walnuts have the highest content of omega 3 fatty acids and Brazil nuts are characterized by a lot of selenium.
In our nut cereal, we use the advantages of different types of nuts. Also, always keep in mind that nuts contain healthy fatty acids. Unlike the unhealthy fatty acids in meat and processed foods, the fats in nuts help to fight and ward of inflammation within our body.
This is essential because inflammation is the number one reason for the development of chronic diseases, including cancer. To read even more on how to protect and even heal yourself and loved ones naturally from inflammation, read my article here:
The nut muesli recipe
First of all, the secret ingredient in this recipe is cardamom*. It has a very interesting taste profile and is a true all-rounder. We learned to love this spice on our Stockholm trip.
The Swedes are crazy about cardamom and add it to every pastry and even with coffee. Plus, I’m used to it as a special ingredient in many European Christmas baking goods. Therefore, I find it very suitable for the nut muesli.
Cardamom* has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system and promotes intestinal health. It also has an antibacterial effect, which promotes dental health.
The nut muesli works without cardamom, but for me, it is an absolute part of it, as it gives the nut muesli an interesting flavor. Cinnamon is also a healthy ingredient.
50 g walnuts
30 g Brazil nuts
50 g hazelnuts
50 grams of almonds
30 g sunflower seeds
50 g cashews
30 g linseed
50 g grated coconut

Preparation of the nut muesli
Now let’s start with the actual nut cereal recipe:
1- First, you should crush the walnuts, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, cashews and almonds.
2- Put the crushed nuts in a bowl and add the sunflower seeds and flax seeds.
3- Then mix the nuts with the coconut oil, honey and the spices vanilla, cinnamon and cardamom.
Now, you already have your basic mix for the nut muesli.
4- Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and set the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
5- Let the nut mixture roast for 20 to 25 minutes and toss it 2-3 times.
6- In the end, let the nuts cool down a bit and add the coconut flakes.
You can now serve your nut muesli with (almond) milk or yogurt. If you cannot tolerate dairy products or are looking for a Paleo-compliant option, you can use a plant-based yogurt instead. It is now available in every well-stocked organic food-store.
For another freshness and vitamin kick, add berries to your nut muesli. A little cocoa, as in raw cocoa powder, also gives an interesting taste.
Tip: You can spice up the nut muesli recipe with dried berries or cocoa nibs. This makes it ideal as a loving and homemade gift for your near and dear ones.
To protect the nut muesli from oxidation, you should store it dark and cool. Furthermore, you should consume it within a week to get all the nutrients. But I bet you won’t be able to keep it any longer anyway.
There you have it – a super delicious and healthy nut muesli recipe, which is also suitable for the Paleo diet.
You can prepare the muesli for the whole week at the weekend and quickly mix it with berries and yogurt in the morning.
