tucker~blinged out oats

With summer just around the corner and me being well and truly sick of that commercial muesli they sell at the 'big two',it seemed like a good time to create a new version.This recipe is dead easy and  evolves continuously, based on whatever you happen to have in the pantry.(I'm spoiled rotten as my local market stocks all of these ingredients, saving me have to do the run-around)

The base           

rolled oats x 1.5 cups                   
organic all bran x 1/2 cup.

The rest is up to you. Here's my current line up.

sultanas x 1/3 cup
currants x 1/4 cup
sunflower seeds x 1/4 cup
pimentos x 1/4 cup
oat bran x 1/3 cup
wheat germ x 1/3 cup
dried cranberries x 1/4 cup
dried mulberries x 1/4 cup (I've only just discovered these.They taste like natural honeycomb)
dried mango squares x 1/4 cup
goji berries x 1/4 cup
sugar nil!

Serve up with soy milk, a good dollop of natural yoghurt and perhaps some blue berries.

The best feature of this muesli, is that, unlike commercial brands, it contains no added sugar.It's also loaded with super-duper foods and tastes pretty darned scrumptious.
