Omi's muesli

    35 min

    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.
