Everyday toasted muesli

This recipe comes from my friend Janne.  It is delicious, so easy to make and much healthier than regular toasted muesli because it has no added fat.  It has no added dried fruit either, but you can add this or fresh fruit as you like each day. It is a staple in our household and every household I pass on the recipe to.
