Make your own Muesli

I have never been fond of shop bought muesli as I could never find one that had all the things in it that I enjoy, and enough of those things to get a taste with every bite.
So here is how I made my own muesli with all my favorite nuts and seeds at just the right quantities. You can adjust and change to your own liking.

What you need:
1/2 kg rolled oats
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seed
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons linseed
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Mix oats, nuts and seeds together. Mix honey and orange juice together and warm in the microwave so that the honey mixes into the juice. Pure over the oats mix and stir to coat everything.
Put into two flat oven trays and bake for about 30 mins at 180 degrees, mixing every ten minutes. Keep a careful eye on it as it burns very quickly around the edges.
Once it is nicely golden and toasted remove and allow to cool.
All toasted before adding fruit
Mix in your fruit

Serve with your own homemade yogurt and a splash of honey, yum.


  1. That looks delicious. I used to make my own years ago before work got in the way.

  2. Yum, that looks delicious. I've been trying to eat gluten free for the past month or so (just an experiment), and have only now realised that just about all commercial muesli has wheat in it!

    I soak my muesli with boiling water for about 10-15 minutes in the morning and then eat with a little milk or yoghurt. Yummy :)
