THE BLUESKIN BAYLEAF: Muesli

THE BLUESKIN BAYLEAF

Muesli

By Rowan Holt

Breakfast is a bit of a blur for me most of the time. If it's a day
I'm working, I still have eyes half focused at 6am. Other days I
simply eat the discarded vegemite toast scraps left on the bench, or
found under the high chair. But, I'm trying to make an effort lately.
I can't do a whole bowl of porridge: by the time I get to the end it's
cold and the lumps of brown sugar have gone.

So, lately I've been trying this recipe and it's delicious! I like it
with greek yogurt and sliced banana.

Home made muesli

1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey (Blueskin Honey of course if you can)
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup bran flakes
1/2 sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 - 1 cup dried fruits chopped (raisins. apricots, prunes, figs...)

Heat oven to 150 degrees on fan bake

Put oil, sugar and honey into sauce pan. Heat gently until sugar dissolves.

In a bowl, combine combine all ingredients except fruit.

Pour honey mixture over and mix thoroughly.

Turn into a large oven proof dish and bake for 20 minutes or until
lightly browned. Stir occasionally.

Leave to cool for a few minutes then add dried fruit.

Store in an airtight container.

Get creative. Add whatever you fancy. Try:

almonds and raisins

dried mangos

macadamia nuts

linseed

blueberries

instead of sugar and honey, use passionfruit pulp
