Rina’s take on Aunty Helen’s Muesli

August 15, 2009 by

Another Auntie Helen muesli recipe changed to taste. The exact amount of the ingredients is not really important. See Pam’s version – you may like that better!

2 cups Rolled Oats
1 cup Whole Oats
½ cup Oat Bran
½ cup Wheatgerm
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Honey
½ cup Coconut
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Mixed Spice
½ cup warm Water
½ cup Olive Oil (or Grape Seed)
¼ tsp Salt (pinch)

Add the following, whatever you like, and amounts you like:

Seeds: Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds. And/or add a bit of L.S.A (Crushed Linseed, Sunflower Seed and Almond)

Nuts: Hazelnuts, Walnuts, Almonds, Pecans, Cashews etc

Fruits: Sultanas, Apricots, Cranberries, Dates, etc. I do not put this in as I rather add fresh fruit when I eat it. Best to add dried fruit only half way else it gets to hard..

METHOD: Mix water, oil, sugar and honey. Put rest of stuff into a large roasting pan, add liquid and combine.  Bake at 160 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, until golden brown.  Stir every 15 minutes or so.  Stir as mixture cools, store in an airtight container when cold.
