Make your own delicious muesli.


  • 1 tblsp rolled oats (heaped)
  • 1 tblsp sultanas
  • 3-4 dried apricots, chopped (optional)
  • 4 tblsp spring water
  • 1 tblsp wheatgerm
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tblsp almonds or hazelnuts
  • ground cloves or cinnamon to flavour
  • juice of ½ lemon or orange
  • 1 dessertspoo honey
  • 1 dessertspoo yoghurt


  • This may be started the night before.
  • Put oats and dried fruit into a bowl.
  • Cover with 4 tablespoons water and soak overnight.
  • In the morning, sprinkle in the wheatgerm.
  • Chop the apple, including skin, core and pips, with the nuts in a food processor (alternatively grate apple and roughly chop nuts by hand ).
  • Tip them into the bowl of oats, sprinkle with spice, pour on the lemon or orange juice and top with honey and yoghurt.
  • Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed together and it is ready to serve.
  • You might find that this rather an off-putting looking mess, but it is delicious all the same!
