Woman's Weekly recipe Brighten up your breakfast table with this homemade fruit and nut muesli – a delicious family favourite!


  • 60g (2oz) hazelnuts, chopped
  • 60g (2oz) flaked almonds
  • 60g (2oz) sultanas
  • 60g (2oz) bran flakes
  • 170g pack dried berries and cherries, or cranberries
  • 500g (1lb) jumbo oats or porridge oats
  • Semi-skimmed milk (300ml/½ pint per person — 75ml/5 tablespoons if soaking, plus extra for serving)
To serve:
  • Greek yogurt
  • Fresh seasonal fruit: mango slivers, apple slices or bananas, pineapple and red grapes
  • Honey or maple syrup

Add about 60g (2ozs) muscovado sugar to the muesli mix if you like it sweeter. The mixture will keep well for a couple of weeks in an airtight container


  1. Toast the nuts in the oven, under the grill or in a frying pan, watching to make sure that they don’t burn. Leave to cool in a large bowl.
  2. Add all the other ingredients and mix together. Store the mixture in an airtight tin or large jar.
  3. Use about 75g (2½oz) muesli per person. For serving as traditional (Bircher) muesli, add 75ml (5 tablespoons) semi-skimmed milk per person. Leave covered in the fridge overnight (it will still be crunchy in the morning — promise!).
  4. Serve in bowls with more milk, topped with a good spoonful of yogurt and fresh fruit. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup.
