The Mean Muesli Recipe!

This is a kind of a mix between muesli and granola - purely because I like a bit more crunch and texture in my breakfast than a pile of dusty old oats! And with this recipe, you can pretty much do what you like with it and put in your favourite ingredients. And you can use this recipe in so many different ways - with milk, grated apple, yoghurt, banana - there are so many options. Breakfast will never be boring again!

1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 tablespoon mild olive oil
1 tablespoon sunflower oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
500g porridge oats
50g sunflower seeds
50g pumpkin seeds
50g sesame seeds
40g ground almonds
80g Brazil nuts
100g raisins
50g oat bran

Put all the wet ingredients in a small pan and heat slowly until they are combined. Now place the oats, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds in a baking tray and pour over wet ingredients. Mix well and place in the oven for 10 minutes on 160C. Stir after 5 minutes. Next, add the sesame seeds, ground almonds and Brazil nuts. Bake for a further 10 minutes, stirring halfway through again. After 10 minutes, check that the mix is browned slightly, if not, leave in for another 5 minutes. Once done, take out of the oven and allow to cool completely. Add the raisins and the oat bran and then store in an airtight container.
