Natural Ange's Toasted Muesli

Article by Angela Haldane

There is always a jar of muesli in our household ready for a breakfast, mid afternoon snack or a 'top up' late at night! It's the "go-to" staple.
Preheat the oven to 140 degrees celsius.

In a large roasting dish – pour in a whole bag of oats. Optional extra- buckwheat. In a saucepan melt 1/3 cup honey into 1 cup of grapeseed or sunflower oil. Once disolved, stir the oil mixture through the oats and bake in the oven.
Keep an eye on the oats, as they will brown quickly on the edges. Half way through this process, add some roughly chopped almonds. Keep baking until the muesli looks golden.
Turn off the oven, and then add dried fruit/nuts and seeds. Let it all cool down together so it goes chewy.
Recommendations:
Date and coconut
Dried apricot, coconut and almond
Cranberries
sesame seeds, linseed, walnuts, always raisins.

Once cooled, store in air tight jars.
This makes a nice homemade gift when you're going to stay with friends
