Months ago I found a recipe for a milo substitute that was nice, but had a bit of an aftertaste that I didn’t like, so after much testing I have come up with this.
Give it a try. Don’t tell the kids its good for them and let me know what you all think of it.
30 g linseeds
30 g sunflower seeds
30 g sesame seeds (preferably toasted for tastier results)
30 g pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
Speed 9 for 30 seconds
120 g blanched almonds (blanched only cause this removes the slightly bitter skin)
70 g cashews (I toast these first but you don’t have to)
150 g pecan nuts
Speed 9 20 sec
Scrape down then add
100 g organic raw cacao powder or good quality cocoa powder (dutch processed)
180 – 200 g organic rapadura sugar or raw sugar
30 seconds on speed 9
Now here is what I like to do with mine, make hot chocolate, sprinkle it on ice-cream mix it in my nephews cold milk, mix it through a cookie or cake batter, make chocolates (truffles with it), make truffles then roll them in it can you think of anything else?
If you’re not going to use all this up within a week or two keep it in the freezer that way all the goodies will be locked in and it should be fine for 3 months. Linseeds and the like loose their potency after they have been cracked open so zip lock bags are used a lot at my place.
