Used to eat a lot of Dorset Cereals muesli, but after moving could no longer find any. Muesli bought in supermarket invariably disgusting and cardboard-like, prompting switch to porridge and other breakfast items. One day, woke up sweating at 2 am in great excitement. Had genius idea. Wrote in notebook next to bed, kept expressly for such flashes of genius: would make muesli at home, by looking at ingredients on Dorset Cereals website. Did so next morning and was v. happy with results. Have about 10 variations, this is #7, as only one took picture of. Other variations include hazelnuts, pistachios, dried cranberries, other exotic expensive things.
Eat with bananas or berrries, or bananas and berries, with cold non-dairy milk or yoghurt.
Homemade Muesli #7
- 40g rolled oats
- 55g bran flakes (or use 65g Sultana Bran and omit raisins)
- 10g raisins, preferably Chilean flame if you can find them, which are most voluptuous of raisins
- 15g chopped toasted cashews
- 10g chopped almonds
- 10g chopped macadamias
- 30g chopped dates
- 20g chopped semi-dried apricots
Place oats in non-stick frying pan and toast on very low heat until aromatic and golden. Combine with remaining ingredients in airtight jar. Do not know how long this keeps for, as often gets over within two days. Take as proof of deliciousness.
