Muesli and muesli bars

6 cups rolled oats			1/2 cup sunflower seeds	
1/2 cup sesame seeds			1/4 cup desiccated coconut	
1 cup wheat germ			2 cups bran
1/3 cup oil				2/3 cup honey
1 cup chopped dried apricots		1 cup chopped dried apples
1/2 cup chopped dried prunes

For bars:
dry muesli mixture (above)		1 cup milk
1 cup honey				1 egg, beaten
To make muesli, place all the top ingredients (except the dried fruit) into a bowl and mix. Bake in a baking tin in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for 45 minutes or until it begins to brown. Stir twice while it is cooking. Cool, then add the apricots, apples and prunes. Store in large screw-top jars.

For bars, take six cups of the muesli mixture and add the egg, milk and honey. Press into a greased Swiss roll pan and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cut into bars. Take them out of the tray when cold. Wrap in cellophane or waxed paper and twist the ends.
