Let’s face it, store bought muesli will never cut it. It doesn’t taste the same as homemade and you don’t know what’s in it (and probably what’s in it is sugar).
The good news is it doesn’t take long to make your own one, and the effort is minimal.
2 cups oats
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup of nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, etc)
1 cup raisins
1 cup goji berries
1 1/2 cup Rude Health flakes (any you like)
- Pre-heat the oven to 160C. Mix oats, nuts, seeds and coconut in a bowl, transfer into a baking tray and bake mixing from time to time until crisp but not burned.
- Wait until muesli cools down and add raisins, goji berries and flakes. Store in a sealed container or a jar.

If you have never seen Flight of the Concords, you should really start watching it. Especially when you feel down or grumpy. It is hilarious and highly entertaining.
And here’s the song which you have to sing when you are making muesli:
