Whole-wheat Muesli Buttermilk Rusks


7 cups whole-wheat flour
12 teaspoons baking powder (this is to make your own self-raising whole wheat flour!)
5ml sea salt
375ml brown sugar
250ml chopped nuts, raisins, cranberries, and sunflower seeds mixed
350ml sunflower oil
500ml muesli (I used 5-grain granola with cranberries, almonds, etc.)
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 cups buttermilk


Set the oven 180 degrees Celsius (350 F)
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl
Add oil, vinegar, and buttermilk
Mix very well
Spread evenly into your pans and bake for 40 min. – or until it feels firm to the touch.
Cool then slice into rectangular bars.
Place on oven racks and dry out at about 75 degrees C (coolest on my oven in 170F) for about 4 hours – until dry right through.
