Mumsey’s Muesli

The story behind this muesli is that it comes from the maternity home in the next town where I had my last two cherubs.
We all loved the muesli they made there and it was what got us out of bed in the mornings and kept us going all day. Some said that was why they kept having babies so they could eat the muesli!!
We were given the recipe in the hope that we would make it ourselves and not keep coming back to eat it!
I have adapted it to my own liking by adding the weetbix, Bran flakes (the sort you find in Sultana Bran), ride bubbles, apricots and papaw.
So you could add or subtract what you liked I suppose, to make it your own.

4 crushed Weetbix
4 cups Rolled oats
4 cups Cornflakes
1 cup Bran
2 cups of processed Bran flakes
1 cup coconut
¼ cup raw sugar
4 Tblsp oil
4 Tblsp melted honey

2 cps Wheatgerm
1 cup sultanas
2 cups rice bubbles
dried apricots and/or papaw chopped.

Mix first seven ingredients together in a large roasting pan.
Add the oil and honey blended together and stir through.
Bake in oven at 180oC for 15 minutes stirring three times during baking.
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Stir through other ingredients and store in air tight containers.
