Seriously delicious homemade muesli

This muesli is perfect for breakfast, a light snack or even in rusks! I recently came up with this recipe when a group of us SAFFAS ( South Africans in Korea) came together to bake our hearty home style rusks! Of course necessity is master of invention and when I discovered how expensive muesli was in Korea, I decided to make my own!


You need

3 cups of oats
1 1/2 cups of mixed nuts and seeds of your choice
1/2 a cup of desiccated coconut
1/2 a cup of honey
2 HEAPED tablespoons of peanut butter
1/2 a cup of butter
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of dried cranberries or raisins

Method to the muesli madness

Set your oven temperature to 180'c

In a pot / pan on the stove mix the honey, peanut butter, butter and water together. Stir for about 5 minutes or until the mixture looks all syrupy and gooey. Set it aside to cool a little. 

In a separate bowl, mix the oats, coconut and seeds together. Add the warm syrup and ensure all the oats is coated in lovely sweet goodness! The whole mixture must be slightly moistened.

Pour the oat mixture into a baking tray and bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes. At the halfway mark use a wooden spoon to mix the oats around. When the muesli is done, it should be golden brown and crispy. 

Add the cranberries or raisins and allow to cool. If you add the raisins before, they tend to puff up and burn in the oven. Allow to cool and store in a sealed container. 

Enjoy with some yogurt and fresh fruit!
