{Recipe} Easy, Homemade Muesli

7:00 am

If you haven't noticed from some of my previous recipes, I do love me some dried cranberries (all year long, in fact) and for my morning muesli, it's no different.

This easy, seed, cereal and fruit muesli is easy to make at home and also makes for a thoughtful, handmade gift that people can enjoy for more than just the one meal. And, for those of you watching what you eat or on the latest health craze, this way, you know exactly whats in your breakfast. Here's what you'll need,

4     Cups Rolled Oats
1     Cup Bran Cereal
1     Cup Coconut
1     Cup Pumpkin Seeds
1     Cup Sunflower Seeds
1     Cup Sultanas
1/2  Cup Dried Apricots, (Diced to about the size of your sultanas)
1/2  Cup Dried Cranberries
2     Oranges (to both zest and juice)
2/3  Cup Honey


To start, you'll need a large oven tray with sides. Something like a roasting pan will work well
  • In this, combine together your oats, cereal, coconut and seeds and place to one side for now
  • Next, finely zest your oranges before juicing them
  • Combine the zest, juice and honey in a saucepan
  • Over a medium heat, stir these together until your honey has melted and the entire mixture is warmed through
  • Then, pour the hot mixture over your oats and combine well
  • On the cook top over a medium heat, keep your mixture constantly moving until your oats and seeds have lightly toasted and you can smell that your zest and honey mix has worked it way though the entire mixture and is smelling beautiful. The alternative is to bake the mix in the oven at around 180c, stirring well every couple of minutes until golden brown
  • The last thing to do off the cooktop is stir through your fruit and allow to completely dry before sealing in your containers

The muesli will last around 2 weeks (unless eaten prior!) if kept in an air tight container.
Let me know how your mix turned out or what extras you added to taste.
