Recreating Familia

My husband loves the Swiss cereal Familia. It's so expensive to buy that I've tried to recreate it at home but he says I'm only doing a so-so job at it. Has anyone made their own meusli at home? When I look for meusli recipes I get things with fresh fruit which I don't want - I'm looking to do a dry mix like what comes in the box. Any tips?

      Thanks. My husband thinks they do something to the oats - he says the texture is different than the oats I use. Maybe Swiss oats taste different! Or do they toast them?
