Great for breakfast - or any time.


  • 150 g oat flakes
  • 3 tblsp crushed almonds, brazil nuts and walnuts (or whatever combo you like)
  • 2 tblsp wheat germ
  • 1 tblsp wheat bran
  • 3 tblsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 tblsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tblsp jumbo raisins and sultanas
  • 1 tblsp cranberries
  • 2 tblsp honey (you can leave it out if you don’t want it too sweet)
  • 2 tblsp olive oil


  • Mix the nuts and seeds together and dry fry in a large non-stick pan until lightly toasted. Remove from the pan or they will continue frying and burn.
  • Mix the honey and oil and then pour the mix over the cereal.
  • Gently heat in the pan until lightly cooked.
  • Mix together the nuts, seeds, dried fruit and the cereal mixture.
  • Add in the wheat germ and bran.
  • Allow to cool completely then store in an air tight container in the fridge.
  • Enjoy topped with natural yoghurt or cold milk.


You could use 150g of a gluten-free muesli base of rice flakes, soya flakes and millet flakes instead of the oats. Leave out the wheat germ and bran if you want a gluten-free ganola.
