Everyone has their preferred food to have for breakfast, and one of mine is homemade muesli. I have tried out various recipes over the years, recording each of them in my recipe book, and this morning I made up my current favourite.
I call it simply Breakfast Muesli and it involves placing into a large bowl 4 cups rolled oat flakes, ½ cup shredded desiccated coconut, 3 tablespoons each of pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, and ½ cup of dried cranberries(or other dried fruit).
Mix it all together with a large spoon and then store in an airtight container.
I use about ½ cup per serving, adding milk, yoghurt, fresh fruit etc. (basically, whatever you fancy – I often just pour hot water over mine and add a sliced kiwifruit). If I intend to have a piece of toast after my cereal, then I only use ¼ cup.
Our weather is changeable today. It began with a mostly blue sky but now, after lunch, the clouds are moving in from the west and the day has become decidedly duller.
Hope everyone is having a good day J
