What do you do?

What do you do?

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". 

Hoopla Kids Muesli

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.)

Method:

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.

Hoopla Kids parcels in brown paper packaging
Our Recyclable Packaging + Waste Management

October 29, 2021

Let's get down to the nitty gritty of fashion retail! It's incredibly common to find that all clothing items you buy in fashion stores are at some point individually wrapped in soft plastics. Clothes are taken out of these packages for display in stores. But the waste is out the back, building up. Since early 2018, we've requested our brands send us stock free of plastic. Many of our brands have been enthusiastically on board with our decision, and we are continuing to push for further change.
