This man is Doctor Maximilian Oskar Bircher-Benner. The Swiss scientist who invented muesli.
We’re very fond of oat-based cereals, and eat lots of porridge through the winter months.
This week I got some oats in Lidl – at 39p for 500g it is cheaper than the other supermarkets at the moment. I mixed in some dried fruit and also some chopped nuts.
I added some desiccated coconut and also a spoonful of dried milk powder too. It has made a very acceptable muesli – and some mornings I also put in chopped fresh apple.
I checked out the various muesli brands and the proportions of ingredients. It seems to be [by weight] quite variable.
other stuff 10-5%
I did about 60% oats and then gauged the other ‘by eye’. I do not add extra sugar.
What is your favourite breakfast cereal?
Does anyone have a good recipe for home-made granola?
