Blueberry and cranberry muesli

A delicious toasted muesli, this is made from a tempting mix of grains, nuts, seeds and colourful red and blue berries. Stirring maple syrup and orange juice into the mix helps to keep the oil content down, making this version much lower in fat than most ready–made ‘crunchy’ cereals.

Blueberry and cranberry muesli

Ingredients

  • 2¼ cups (225 g) original (rolled) porridge oats
  • ½ cup (45 g) wheatgerm
  • 50 g millet flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • ⅓ cup (40 g) dried blueberries
  • ⅓ cup (40 g) dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon soft brown or raw sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, wheatgerm, millet flakes, sesame and sunflower seeds, almonds, dried berries and sugar.
  3. Stir until well mixed.
  4. Put the maple syrup, oil and orange juice in a small jug and whisk together.
  5. Pour this mixture slowly into the dry ingredients, stirring to ensure that the liquid is evenly distributed and coats everything lightly and evenly.
  6. Spread the mixture out evenly in a non–stick roasting tin.
  7. Bake for 30–40 minutes, or until slightly crisp and lightly browned.
  8. Stir the mixture every 10 minutes to encourage even browning.

  10. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
