ATTRACTED but terrified by the thought of making your own muesli? Here’s a recipe from thislife magazine’s very own domestic goddess, strategic planner Dean Hand. Says our Dean: ‘I just toss all this together and don’t worry too much about measurements. Soon you end up doing it to taste.’
What you need:
2 tbsp honey
Splash of hot water
2 cups rolled oats
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup omega mix (mixture of pumpkin, sesame seeds and linseed) - or any other combination of seeds you like
200g dried cranberries (cranberries taste fantastic but any dried fruit will work – raisins, apricots, pitted prunes, apples…)
1 cup oat bran
100g flaked almonds
What you do:
Mix the honey and water in a large pot on a low heat until watered down. Coat all the ingredients together with this mixture and put them on a large baking tray.
Roast in an oven at 140 °C until lightly toasted (don’t cook). This takes about 20 minutes, and you might need to move the mixture around every now and again.
Serve with milk/fruit juice, yogurt, or fresh fruit.
