Recipe: Muesli with flax

A common European breakfast cereal  that you can make in your own home.  Our German wwoofer Heike says its better than store bought.  Quick and easy to make at home. Great way to introduce raw food into your diet, with its health benefits.

Muesli
Mix in a large bowl
8 cups of oatmeal (we use large flaked but you can use instant)
1/2 cup of freshly ground flax seed
1 cup of chopped or ground almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds
1 cup of chopped dried fruit (apples, pears, cranberries, apricots, cherries, raisins, etc.)
Mix together well.  Keep in an airtight container.  Makes 16 - 1/2 cup servings. 

Serve with raw milk or yoghurt and honey, maple syrup or brown sugar.  Add it to muffins or bread as a crunch and texture boost.  Serve with fresh or frozen berries for an added antioxidant boost.
