I love finding alternatives to boxed breakfast cereal. I've just written a post all about the horrific process our cereals go through!! Crazy. http://www.thenourishingroad.co.uk/2012/01/cereal-killers-part-2-closer-look.html Have a read!

Try adding grape nuts, and using fruit juice (apple or cranbury) instead of milk.

I have made muesli before and used crumbled-up Weetabix. Gives a very nice texture. Also adding lecithin is very beneficial for lowering cholesterol I have heard.

Add the milk just before you are going to eat it.

Hi! Im not sure i get the recipe. Are you meant to add the milk when you are about to eat it, like at breakfast time, or when you prepare thw whole lot? If you prepare the whole lot and then add the milk, how will it keep for two months? I think im missing something. Will someone please explain? Thanks Sana
