good source for muesli (at a fair price!)
I've had it with the ridiculous prices for muesli at Whole Foods and Harvest. plus or minus $5 a pound for what is essentially oats.
IS anyone aware of other sources for quality product? I'd be happy to buy in bulk for a better price and as much as I would like to buy local, I would consider mail order.
Thanks for any input you can offer
Do check out the muesli at Swissbakers in Allston for an example of how to make a good one. They grate the apples rather than cutting them into chunks. Of course, the fun of making your own is to add your own ingredients.
In 6 box lots Amazon sells (shipping extra)
Familia for $.24/oz; $3.84/lb
Alpen for $.31/oz; $4.96/lb
Bobs for $.18/oz; $2.88/lb
While the raw rolled oats are the cheapest ingredient (about $1/lb), these also have nuts ($5/lb or more) and dried fruit.
