Vera Garrett's Muesli recipe
From: Gail Joslin, South Africa

Mix in a large bowl:

  • 4 cups oats
  • 2 cups of wheat flakes (Weetabix etc)
  • 1/2 (half) cup raisins
  • 1/2 (half) cup nuts - chopped, any kind
  • 1 cup wheatgerm (optional)
  • 1/2 (half) cup barley malt powder (if obtainable - not necessary, but nice)
  • 1/2 (half) cup ground sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon linseeds
  • 1 Tablespoon ground sesame seeds
Warm together in a saucepan (DO NOT BOIL):
  • 1/2 (half) cup coldpressed oil (whatever you like - I use sunflower)
  • 1/2 (half) cup barley malt syrup
Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon.
Store in a container with a lid.
Use as needed with fresh fruit, soya or nut milk or fruit juice.

NOTE: any of the nuts, seeds, grains, etc can be increased.
I also like to add chopped dried dates, figs, apricots, pears, etc - whatever is available and that appeals to you.

Enjoy! This is a very satisfying start to a day, and keeps you going until lunch time.
