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.
