Toasted Swiss Muesli Cereal

Recipe by Tammy Sutherland

A healthy, delicious morning cereal. I mix 1/4 cup of this cereal with a bowl of bran flakes, or a 1/2 strawberry yogurt, and sliced fruit for a quick and healthy breakfast

Thank you! I've been looking for a recipe to make the sort of muesli I buy in the supermarket. This one is quite close, unlike the others I've looked at, and it tastes very nice. I followed the recipe pretty closely this time, only using dried apple instead of apricot. (And I completely forgot about the sunflower seeds which I have!) I wondered about the wheat germ, and it is a strong flavor in this muesli. I know it's important from the nutritional aspect, but may try decreasing it a little next time. All in all, though, I'm very pleased with this recipe and very grateful to you for sharing it with us.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Mix oats, wheat germ, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and almonds in a large bowl.
  3. Add oil and honey to the bowl and stir until all ingredients are well combined.
  4. Pour contents of bowl unto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Distribute contents on cookie sheet so that they cook evenly.
  6. Bake for 30-45 minutes (until the oats and almonds appear golden), stirring well every 10 to 15 minutes (this ensures even baking).
  7. Once baked, remove cookie sheet from oven and let the oat mixture cool.
  8. Once sufficiently cooled stir in the dried fruit.
  9. Store the muesli in an airtight container for up to a month.
