What’s for breakfast?

What to do when the old favourite fades? We had this in our house at breakfast time.

we were doing so well!!!!

Not to allow commercial cereals into our house…

.but they started creeping back in ….. we were all tired of porridge after the long winter!!

winter was easy …. Porridge oats with honey :mrgreen:

…… But how to get as good as that but a change that was tasty and gave us that slow release energy to get us through to lunch?

….. and the answer?

Oats!!!!

….. not hot with honey though but ……

Granola!!!! 

Here’s how I made ours and there are lots of variations you can try

You need

Oats

Nuts and seeds ( soak overnight to remove toxins)

Dried fruit of your choice ( source dried fruit if possible from local health shop that is free from sulphite preservative)

Maple syrup

Next

Mix it all up and spread out on a baking sheet and toast for 10-15 min

Store in airtight container and serve with some fresh fruit and spoon of natural yogurt if you wish!

Now…. To make this more versatile Check out Jamie Oliver’s Granola dust! ( handy to add to smoothies and for Kids Who are fussy about eating the granola as is)

ps: at week-ends we do french toast or pancakes using oat flour!
