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.)
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.
