muesli flakes in a wooden spoon close up

This is a hearty and wholesome Muesli.  Plenty of Omegas and Fibres and very little sugar.  This one is for those serious about their healthy breakfasts.  However, for those of us with a slightly sweeter tooth I would seriously advocate persistence – in my house this has become a family favourite…especially when made slightly less puritanical with some fresh berries and lashings of greek yoghurt and honey.

500g Rolled oats (If your bag is a 600g one just use the lot)

500g rolled wheat

75g raw wheatgerm (if you can find it – adds a lovely nuttiness)

100g sesame seeds

100g sunflower seeds

100g flaked almonds (or slivered if you like more crunch)

100g pumpkin seeds

100g golden flaxseed

100g walnut pieces

50g dried cranberries

250g golden raisins

200g raisins


Put the whole lot in the biggest bowl you own (an immaculately clean washing up bowl works just fine) and mix well.  Place in an airtight container and it should last as long as the closest ‘best before’ date on the fruits – usually a good six months.
