HOME-MADE MUESLI

HOME-MADE MUESLI

Rolled oats are the main ingredient then it's entirely up to you what you add & how much of each.  Amounts given are approximate & can be more or less according to your own taste.  Be careful not to use too much oil or juice.  The juice can be any brand or flavour, & is used to add sweetener instead of sugar.  I've based the amounts on a 750gm bag of rolled oats (I use the larger shaped oats), but of course you can make less to suit your needs.   The ingredients can be made up of all or some of these below.  You will need two bowls - one large bowl for the ingredients that get toasted, & a smaller bowl for the dried fruits (which do not get toasted):  

In the large bowl add the following:

Rolled Oats 750gm bag Sesame Seeds - half a cup 
Pumpkin or Pepita Seeds - half a cup Sunflower Seeds - half a cup
Almonds (chopped) - half a cup Hazelnuts (chopped) - a handful
Coconut (thread style) - one cup Vanilla Essence - 2 capfuls (more or less)
Canola Oil - 2 tablespoons
(just enough to slightly dampen)
Fruit Juice - half to one cup of juice
(just enough to slightly dampen) 

Mix together.  Pour enough in an oven tray to cover the bottom, but not too much that it won't toast evenly.  Bake in oven for about 20 mins or to your liking, at around 160 degrees.  Shake the tray at the 10 minute mark for even toasting.  Tip the contents into a pot or extra large bowl & toast any remaining muesli.  You could add half cup of raw sugar at this point if you wanted, but the juice is usually enough to sweeten it.  Now add about half a cup of each of your preferred DRIED fruit (which should all be chopped into very small pieces), & could include: Raisins, Sultanas, Currants, Cranberries, Banana Chips, Apricots, Strawberries, Dates, Papaya, or Mango. 

This should stay fresh in a sealed plastic container for 2 or 3 weeks.  Enjoy!
