Why do you need a low fat muesli recipe?
Easy! Commercial cereals tend to have added fat and sugar. You may not care much, but eliminating sugar and added fat, together with a bit of activity every day, may help you lose some weight.
This homemade muesli recipe fixes that.
It has no added fat, and you can even purchase organic ingredients with no artificial preservatives from any good health shop.

This cereal recipe makes 45 serves of 40 grams each. The nutritional information in the table is, as usual, for each 40 g serve. It only takes about 30 minutes to prepare.
750 g rolled oats
1 cup of barley flakes
1 cup rye flakes
1/3 cup of sesame seeds
1 cup of wheatgerm
2 cups processed oat-bran cereal
1/2 cup roasted buckwheat
250 g dried fruit medley
250 g sultanas
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of pepitas
This is what you do:
In an ungreased oven tray, put half of the oats and bake at 200°C for 15 minutes till golden, occasionally stirring.
If you're in a hurry, you can put the oats in a microwave (600 W) on high for about 10 minutes (but I prefer the oven method).
Put aside the oats, and do the same with the remaining oats and barley. Put aside too.
Next, toast the sesame seeds in a non-stick frying pan (no oil or grease), till golden (but not burnt).
Mix all of the above ingredients and store away in an air-tight container.
This low fat muesli recipe is high in thiamin, and provides iron, zinc and potassium.
