Breakfast Cereals: Toasted Muesli.

Toasted Muesli

This is a favorite Swiss-German morning cereal based on oats and fruit. Packaged versions are quite pricey and not nearly as good.
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup sunflower kernels
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/3 cup finely chopped dates
2 tablespoons oat bran
1 cup bran flakes
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1/4 cup raisins
1 tablespoon sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a 15 x 10-inch baking pan, combine the oats, sunflower kernels, and almonds. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the almonds are almost golden.
2. In a large bowl, combine the dates and oat bran, and stir to coat the fruit with the bran. Add the toasted oat mixture, bran flakes, wheat germ, raisins, and sugar. Stir to gently combine all the ingredients.
3. Place the muesli in an airtight container or a self-sealing plastic bag. Label and date, and store in a cool, dry place.
Makes 3 1/2 cups {about 7 servings}
