Homemade Granola Muesli
This isn’t a recipe per se, but rather a way to make your own muesli for breakfast, which is almost always healthier than store-bought and takes advantage of buying in bulk, or utilizing seasonal items that come cheap.
It’s basically mixing a whole bunch of things, making your own muesli with the ingredients that you like and are available to you.
You will need a large container, or food-grade bucket.
- Oats and/or Toasted Oats*
And then add any of the following that you like
- Bran flakes
- Puffed Wheat
- Puffed Rice
- Corn flakes
- Chopped Nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts etc)
- Chopped Dried Fruit (apricots, apples, raisins, banana chips etc)
- Seeds (sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, chia, ground flax etc)
- Psyllium husk
- Shredded coconut
Mix all the ingredients together and store in the container. It will need to be mixed well occasionally, to distribute ingredients evenly and you can just keep topping it up with the same or new ingredients.
Serve with milk, half a cup of dry mix is usually plenty. This can also be served warm in winter. This is a high-fibre nutritious breakfast, which can save you cooking time in the mornings and will keep you full until lunch. Obviously, use ingredients that you and your family like, and that which you can get your hands on and suits your budget.
*Toasted Oats are often high in sugar, you can make your own by spreading out oats on a baking tray and baking in a low oven until slightly browned – keep an eye on it so you don’t burn them!
