Home Made Muesli



I always used to make my mother in law's June's recipe which is delicious but wheat germ which was once dirt cheap is now an expensive health food item and had disappeared form the supermarket shelves. As it's a treasured recipe I still make from time to time. She served it with milk and stewed apples which go perfectly with it. Here is her recipe:
 
June’s Muesli
 
Ingredients:
4 cups rolled oats
1 cup wheatgerm
1 cup brown sugar
1 tspn cinnamon
½ tspn mixed spice
¼ tspn salt
½ cup of oil
½ cup of milk
Method
 
Put all ingredients in a baking dish. Stir well with a big spoon. Bake at 150 degrees C for 40-60 minutes. Stir again from time to time.
Chopped peanuts and sunflower seeds can also be added to the mixture, and when it has finished baking a handful of chopped apricots is a nice addition.
 
But lately I have been doing it my way and it's now less sugary and buttery. Making muesli is so relaxing. You can play around and tailor it to your own tastebuds.As long as you have some rolled oats you can add lots of other bits and pieces lying round in the pantry .

Here's my basic recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups of rolled oats
4-6 tablespoons of sunflower seeds/chopped walnuts/chopped almonds
1/4 cup of desiccated coconut
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of runny honey
20 grams of butter/ 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1/2 cup of raisins/dried apricots/dried cranberries

Method
Put all ingredients except the dried fruit in a baking dish. Stir well with a big spoon. Bake at 150 degrees C for 40-60 minutes. Stir again from time to time.
When it has finished baking a handful of chopped apricots is a nice addition
