This crunchy muesli will sustain you right through the morning until lunchtime. Stored in an airtight container, the mix will keep well for 2–3 weeks.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1 cup oat bran
1 cup dried fruit medley
1/2 cup sultanas
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon psyllium
natural low-fat yoghurt, to serve
honey, to serve
or maple syrup, to serve

Method

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and toss well.
  2. Serve 1/2 cup muesli per person, topped with yoghurt and drizzled with maple syrup. Add fresh fruit and low-fat milk if you like.

Variations

  • If you prefer toasted muesli, spread the mixture onto a baking tray and bake at 180ºC for 10–15 minutes until golden. There’s no need to add any extra oil.

    Add your favourite dried fruit, nuts and seeds, as well as (or instead of) the ones we suggest.

Super ingredient: Oats

  • The humble oat is a winner among grains. Traditional rolled oats oats have a low GI, which means that the carbohydrate is slowly absorbed into your system, keeping you satisfied for hours after eating. Oats are rich in the soluble type of fibre that can lower your cholesterol. They contain small amounts of ‘good’ fats – more than either wheat or rice. And they are nutritious, giving you B vitamins and vitamin E as well as protein and minerals.
