Making your own muesli is really easy and much more affordable than buying ready-made muesli. You can also control how much sugar, salt and oil is added.

1. Preheat oven to 180 °C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Place oats, nuts and seeds in a large mixing bowl. Place oil and honey or sugar in a separate bowl and melt in the microwave or a small saucepan over low heat for a few minutes. Stir in the vanilla.
3. Mix oil mixture well into oats mixture.
4. Spread oats in a single layer on the baking paper. Roast for 10 minutes. Stir through and roast for another 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.
6. Serve ½ cup (125 ml) muesli per person with ¼ cup (60 ml) plain low-fat yogurt and ½ cup (125 ml) of any fresh fruit. Add a pinch of cinnamon for more flavour.

Tip:
1. Use seasonal fruit like peaches, mangoes, grapes or berries in summer and pawpaw, banana, grapefruit, kiwi or naartjies in winter. Remember that ½ cup (125 ml) fruit is 1 portion.
