Malt-Roasted Chocolate & Almond Muesli  

½ cup water
3/4 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 170 C. 

Place the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, add the maple syrup, oil and chocolate and whisk until well combined.

Place the oats, puffed rice, coconut, almonds, malt powder and cocoa in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Pour over the hot sugar syrup and mix until well combined. Spoon onto a 30cm x 42 cm baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.
