Recently we have started making our own muesli and it has been really easy and really tasty. The main reason to make it, for me, is the cost. Muesli can be expensive to buy from the supermarket. I think the main reason for Adam is probably for health. Muesli in the supermarket often (but not always) comes with a lot of added sugar and/ or salt. Another good reason is that you get to choose exactly which ingredients to include, which is always fun.
The first time we made muesli it seemed like we were spending a fortune on banana chips, desicated coconut, oats, bran flakes, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, walnuts, sultanas and raisins, and we were! But we haven’t had to replenish any of them yet after making a few batches so I think it has definitely worked out cheaper over time.
So here it is, our lovely muesli, before being mixed up of course! From the bottom up you can see Bran Flakes (bashed up with the end of a rolling pin), porridge oats, walnuts, coconut, currants, sultanas, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, mixed nuts and banana chips.
I can hardly wait until breakfast tomorrow!
