What do you do when your two and a half year old has fallen asleep at 4.30pm and surprisingly enough, is not in the least interested in sleeping come the evening?
Well, sometimes I bake. Tonight's project was muesli. A cheerful time of measuring and weighing accompanied by the constant "I can do it" or "I do it".
700g Whole rolled oats
1 cup walnuts (chopped)
1 cup cashews (chopped)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
2 cups coconut (fine)
2 - 3 cups dried fruit (dates, raisins, cranberries, figs etc.)
Put everything but the fruit in a large bowl and mix to combine.
Spread evenly in baking trays with sides and toast until you smell it or it is just starting to brown lightly. Give it a bit of a mix around while its in the oven to toast evenly.
Pour into your muesli container with the dried fruit and shake to combine.
Swap any of the seeds/nuts/fruit for other types, or leave out completely. Our muesli is an ever changing mix depending on what is in the cupboard.
Somehow, despite loving quality things, we've ended up with more than a few single use items in our home. But I always felt annoyed by the wastefulness, so over time I've sorted through and hunted out a few sustainable solutions to meet our needs.
