Our founder Dr. Peter Brukner whips up a batch of this low carb muesli at the weekend to have on hand for breakfasts or snacks during the week. It’s best served with unsweetened thick full fat Greek yoghurt and fresh berries.

Our tip: If you don’t have all the ingredients to hand to make this low carb muesli, don’t stress! You can easily make it with whatever nuts and seeds you have in your pantry. Feel free to experiment.
