About this recipe:
In Southern Africa, where I grew up during the 80s, we couldn't always find ready-made things like muesli. So we made our own instead and it is far, far tastier and healthier than some of the stuff you can buy in a supermarket. Oats, bran flakes, nuts and unrefined sugars make this muesli a treat for breakfast or an evening snack.
2 tablespoons treacle
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 cup brown sugar, about 120g
2 cups (about 60g) Pronutro® or finely crushed, plain cornflakes
500g bran flakes
1 cup (about 100g) chopped, mixed nuts - walnuts, cashews, almonds, etc
1 and 1/2 cups raisins or sultanas or dried fruit of choice

20 min › Ready in:
Preheat oven to 140 C / Gas 1.
Place butter, treacle and bicarbonate of soda in a pot; cook over medium heat until butter and treacle have melted.
Mix the oats, brown sugar, cornflakes, bran flakes and mixed nuts together in a large bowl.
Pour the melted butter mixture over the oat and cereal mixture; stir well until all the ingredients are well coated.
Pour the muesli into a large, deep baking tray and spread evenly. You might need to do two batches.
Toast in preheated oven until just starting to brown, about 15-20 minutes.
Allow to cool before adding dried fruit; mix well and store in an airtight container in a cool cupboard for up to a month. Serve with milk.
