Mix and match the items you wish. I chose porridge oats, mixed nuts, coconut chips, superseed mix, cranberries, dates, apple rings and cinnamon.
Chop things that need to be chopped smaller then mix everything together and place in an air tight container. In an airtight container your mix will stay fresh for a month.
Alternatively, you can toast the seeds and nuts in a oven pre-heated to 160 degrees C for 10 minutes. Allow to cool before mixing with the other ingredients.
The whole mix which was 338g cost £1.59 (47p/100g). Prices will vary depending on your choices. For comparison Dorset Cereals are 53.6p/100g in the Co-op.
Have your special muesli mix for breakfast with a milk of your choice and top with fresh fruit if you wish. You can also soak overnight in fruit juice or milk for a breakfast with a different texture. A great breakfast to start the day!
