Dad’s Homemade Natural Muesli
Dad has eaten natural muesli for breakfast for the 35 years I have known him. In the late nineties natural muesli was unobtainable in New York. Dad became real moody and difficult until I found a health food shop that stocked natural ingredients and began making him this home made version. I used Hawaiian mix to provide the dried fruit component but you can add whatever you like.
3 cups rolled oats
1½ cups oat bran
2 cups rye flakes
½ cup wheatgerm
½ cup roasted sunflower seeds
75g unblanched almonds
3 cups Hawaiian mix
Mix all together and keep in an airtight container
Note: You can add linseed and/or buckwheat instead of bran if you prefer these.
Ideas for Natural Muesli
- Use as a topping for plain yoghurt and fruit. Particularly good with sliced banana or blueberries.
- Eat with orange juice as a change from milk the way dad does
