I’ve been making my own home-made muesli for a while now, and I’d never go back to the supermarket stuff. It’s quick, easy, healthy, and most importantly, it tastes delicious! I also find that if I have a bowl topped up with yoghurt and blue berries, I’m not hungry until lunchtime, meaning no naughty snacking in-between meals.
I choose to add yoghurt raisins, cranberries and raisins, but you can add whatever dried fruit or nuts/seeds that take your fancy.
Give it a go, I guarantee you’ll love it!
- 4 cups rolled oats
- 2 ½ cups wheat germ
- 1 ½ cups bran flakes (see here if you’re confused)
- ½ slivered almonds
- ½ pumpkin seeds
- ½ sunflower seeds
- 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
- ½ honey
- ½ Rice Bran oil (or Grapeseed or similar)
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 ½ coconut thread
- ½ raisins
- ½ dried cranberries
- ½ yoghurt covered raisins
- Preheat your oven to 160C. Line two oven trays (with sides) with baking paper.
- Mix rolled oats, wheat germ, bran flakes, almonds and the seeds together in a large bowl
- Microwave the honey for 30 seconds or until runny
- In a jug, stir together the runny honey, oil and vanilla essence
- Pour liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated (I use my hands to ensure thorough mixing)
- Transfer mixture onto the two baking trays and spread out
- Bake for 10 mins (swapping the trays over at half way)
- Stir through the thread coconut and cook for another 10 mins (swappying trays again)
- Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
- When cold mix in the dried fruit and yoghurt raisins.
- Enjoy with fresh yoghurt (I recommend passionfruit) and milk
