Toasted Muesli

I started to make my own muesli over 20 years ago because I didn’t like the amount of sugar the commercial muesli’s added. And while I was about it I cut back on the amount of fat as well. Originally I micro-waved this recipe – this had the advantages that it was fast (8 minutes cooking) and I could cook the muesli in the same container I would store it in. More recently I bake it in an oven as I just don’t trust the microwave anymore.
