Muesli Recipe

I received this authentic recipe from a New Zealand pen pal. My family loves the naturally sweet flavor of the honey, and I like it because it's not loaded with preservatives.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:14 servings


  • 6 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1-1/2 cups toasted wheat germ
  • 1-1/2 cups all-bran cereal
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1-1/2 cups honey
  • 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cups chopped dried apricots


  • 1. Preheat oven to 275°. In a large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, cereal and coconut. Pour into two greased 13x9-in. baking pans.
  • 2. Bake 20 minutes, stirring once. Heat honey in a saucepan until thin, about 5 minutes. Pour half into each pan; stir to coat evenly.
  • 3. Return to the oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden, stirring every 10 minutes. Stir in walnuts and apricots. Cool, stirring occasionally. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 11 cups.

"First of all--this is granola-it is NOT muesli. Muesli is just a mixture of grains, dried fruits, and nuts--it is NOT baked and it is generally NOT sweetened. Even as granola, this is nothing special--I have had much better. This recipe is MUCH too sweet. If I lessened the amount of honey, I might use this as a base for a granola that includes more dried fruit, nuts, seeds, and the like. Using all-bran cereal is sort of a waste--why not use wheat or oat bran itself?"

"Muesli is an excellent source of fibre and many other things and one my family loves. It's a recipe we'll be making many more times and keeping for a long time."
