Muesli

The CHOICE home-made muesli recipe is one of our favourites. The results disappear pretty fast as the aroma wafts through our test kitchen — we hope you like it too.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup rice bran
  • 2 cups triticale flakes (or substitute wheat, rice or bran flakes)
  • 3/4 cup unprocessed wheat bran
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp slivered almonds
  • 3/4 cup shredded or flaked coconut
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 150 ml fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup apricots, chopped finely
  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • 6 pieces dried apple, chopped finely
  • 5 pieces dried mango, chopped finely
  • 5 pieces dried paw paw, chopped finely
  • 6 prunes, chopped finely

Method

  • Combine all dry ingredients (except dried fruit).
  • Blend honey and juice (warm gently in microwave), pour over dry ingredients, mix well.
  • Place mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper, bake at 150°C for 25-30 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Cool.
  • Combine dried fruit with baked ingredients.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Other dried fruits can be used instead — try figs, raisins, cranberries, currants, banana or pears.
