A Simple Muesli Recipe
If you want a good quality muesli it is often cheaper to mix it yourself.
Take about 3 cups of organic oats (flaked or rolled).
Add a cup of wholewheat flakes. If you are sensitive to wheat, either omit the wheat flakes or add spelt wheat flakes instead. Spelt is an ancient form of wheat which many people find easier to digest than modern wheat strains.
Add a cupful of rye and/or barley flakes.
Whole barley or wheat berries are good if you are going to soak the muesli before eating it. It's best to keep them separate so that you have the option! They will need to be soaked overnight.
Add a cupful of mixed dried fruit, chopped if you are using larger things such as apricots and dates. Lexia raisins are very tasty.
Add a few chopped nuts such as hazelnuts, brazils or cashews. You can also experiment with a few seeds such as sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds - though not everyone likes the taste. Too many nuts and seeds can make the muesli a bit indigestible, so go easy - half a cupful will be enough for most people.
Store your muesli mix in a cool dry place.
For best results add liquid (milk, soya milk, rice milk, fruit juice) either the night before or half and hour before you want to eat your muesli. Add plenty of cut up fresh fruit.
Muesli can also be prepared . Just cook it and treat it the same as porridge. Very nice on cold days.
