140g (5oz) wheat flakes

100g (3 1/2oz) barley flakes

75g (2 3/4oz) rye flakes

280g (10oz) ready-to-eat dried apricots

Chopped 200g (7oz) sultanas


  1. Place oats, wheat flakes, barley flakes, rye flakes and sunflower seeds in a large bowl; stir to mix. Add dried fruit; mix well.
  2. Transfer muesli to an airtight container; cover tightly. Serve with milk (or a dairy-free alternative) or low-fat natural yoghurt and top with a little prepared fresh fruit such as blueberries or raspberries.

Variations

  • Bran flakes, bran sticks or buckwheat flakes can be substituted for the barley or rye flakes. Try using other mixed dried fruit such as ready-to-eat dried pears and raisins, or ready-to-eat dried figs and cranberries, in place of the apricots and sultanas. Pumpkin seeds can be substituted for the sunflower seeds.
