Breakfast of Champions

Home made Muesli!

Easier, cheaper and healthier than granola. The recipe came from my friend AK. The main ratio is about 10 parts oats to 1 part wheat germ. I did about 3 cups oats and 1/4 c wheat germ in this batch. I used pecans, cranberries and blueberries.

3 c oats
1/4 c wheat germ
1/4 c nuts chopped or sliced
1/4 c dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, blueberries, cherries are all good)
1 t cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400. Spread oats on a cookie sheet and toast for 10 minutes. Check halfway through and stir if needed. After 10 minutes, sprinkle wheat germ and nuts on top and toast for 5 more minutes. I add the fruit for the last 5 minutes because I like it chewier, but if you like your fruit soft, then add it after everything is toasted. This is also when you would want to add any heat sensitive ingredients, like ground flax seed. Let cool and store in an airtight container. Enjoy with milk, yogurt, hot or cold.
