I found this recipe in 'The High-Fiber Cookbook' by Pamela Westland
(foreword by Nathan Pritikin)1982. Old book but some good high fiber recipes
if you watch the fat content!

Muesli Base

Serves 4 Per Serving: 120 Calories, 2 fat grams, 4 grams fiber

75 g / 1 cup rolled oats
15g / 1/4 cup bran
15 g / 1/2 cup wheat germ
25 g / 1/4 cup Bran flakes

Mix these dry ingredients together to make 4 generous 1/2 cup servings.

The base can be varied daily by simply adding grated apple, a selection of
fresh or dried fruits, nuts or vegetables, and serving it with cold milk,
unsweetened lemon, orange, apple or grape juice, or low-fat plain yogurt.


Toasted Muesli

Serves 6 Per Serving 160 Calories, 8 grams fat, 3 grams fiber

1 recipe Muesli base
15 ml / 1 tbsp clear honey
15 ml / 1 tbsp brown sugar
10 ml / 2 tsps vegetable oil, e.g. sunflower
few drops vanilla
50 g / 1/2 cup mixed nuts, chopped

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the honey and sugar into a small pan over
low heat and stir until they dissolve. Remove the pan from the heat, add the
oil, vanilla and nuts and stir in the muesli base.

Spread the muesli on a baking tray and bake for about 20 mins, stirring
occasionally so that it browns evenly. Allow to cool on the tray. Serve with
fresh or dried fruits and more nuts. This muesli can be stored in a covered


Toasted Muesli - Now..my modifications. To make it lower fat.

I used Butter Buds mixed in water in place of the vegetable oil and mixed
this in with the honey and brown sugar in the pan. I used 1 Tablespoon of
butter bud mix and 2 tablespoons of water. In place of the nuts, I used
roasted soy nuts to make it healthier.

When toasting this, I just sprayed a cookie sheet with Olive Oil Pam and
then spread the mix out evenly. I then sprayed the top of the mix lightly
with the Olive Oil Pam just in case it needed some oil to brown. I put this
in the oven for 6 mins and it was getting pretty brown. I stirred it well
and sprayed just a little more Pam and put back in the oven. I sat the timer
for 5 mins and it was trying to burn on me. I took it out and stirred well
and let it sit. So, that is all the cooking my batch got but it turned out
very good. Great toasted munchy treat and great in plain yogurt.

Today, I was down to 1/2 cup of oatmeal and that is not enough for Kalan and
me. I added 1/2 cup of this Toasted Muesli to the oatmeal (Quaker Oats,
Quick 1 minute cook type) and cooked the 1 minute like the container calls
for on the Oatmeal container. I also added another tablespoon of honey and a
teaspoon sugar. It came out VERY GOOD!! Even Kalan loved it. I have to
sweeten it up a little or he will not eat it, LOL!!

This will definitely be a part of our breakfast in the future.

Hope you enjoy it too if you try it.
