Recipe by Barefoot Beachcomber
My doctor gave me this with instructions to eat it every day, and it would lower my sugars, cholesterol, triglycerides, and kick start my weight loss. And he was right, all those things happened. Buy all these goodies as organic as you can, unsalted and unsweetened. When I make it, I leave out the nuts and raisins
- 1⁄2 cup ground flax seeds
- 1⁄2 cup wheat germ
- 1 cup wheat bran
- 6 cups old fashioned oats (not instant nor quick)
- 1 cup barley, flakes
- 1 cup rye flakes
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries
- 1⁄4 cup unsalted pumpkin seeds (roasted)
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1⁄4 cup almonds
- 1⁄4 cup ground walnuts
- 1⁄2 cup sesame seeds
- Mix all together in a large bowl.
- Store in a large, glass jar. (not plastic).
- Serve 1/2 cup with skim milk and no fat yogurt, and some stewed fruit or blue berries.
- It's a good idea to let muesli sit for a few minutes in the milk, to soften the oats. You can eat it cold or warm it in the microwave.
