Intro: This is a Swiss-German toasted cereal based on oats and fruit. Packaged versions are very expensive and do not taste as good.

Ingredients:                                                                                                                 Muesli, WikiMedia Commons

2 cups old fashioned oats

¼ cup sunflower kernels

¼ cup sliced almonds

1/3 cup chopped dates

1 cup bran flakes

¼ cup toasted wheat germ

¼ cup raisins

1 tablespoon sugar

Step 1:  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  In a 15 X 10-inch baking pan, combine the oats sunflower kernels, and almonds.  Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the almonds are almost golden.

Step 2: In a large bowl combine the dates and oat bran and stir to coat the fruit with the bran.  Add toasted oat mixture, bran flakes, wheat germ, raisins, and sugar.  Stir gently to combine all the ingredients.

Step 3: Place the muesli in an airtight container or self dealing plastic bag.  Label, date and store in a cool dry place.

Makes 3 ½ cups

Tip: Cereals are a frequent drain on a family’s budget.  Homemade alternatives like this have less sugar, less salt, and more fiber making them a healthier and less expensive choice
