Muesli is pretty easy to make, except when you try and compare it with Hubbards. As I detest peanuts in my muesli, this is a peanut free zone, but feel free to add your own touches. While I can't say this is quite Hubbards style, it's not too bad, next I want to experiment with a berry flavoured one.

Apricot and almond toasted muesli

4 cups rolled oats (or a Coliacs safe alternative)
70gms (3/4 cup or 1 packet of Taste) ground almonds
1 cup coconut
2 tsp almond essence
3/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup oil
2/3 cup chopped dried apricots (try and get organic to avoid the sulphur)

In a bowl combine oats, almonds, coconut and salt, mix oil, essence, and syrup in a cup and mix into the dry ingredients.
Spread into a roasting dish and bake slowly for 2 hours at 100c- 120c (no fan) stirring every 20 mins. Turn the heat up to 180 and cook a further 10 minutes, stirring after 5 mins.
Add apricots and mix through, once completely cold store in an air tight container.
