Making Museli...

Today Regan and i tried our hand at making our own museli... It is seriously hard to find any decent cereal in the shops without it containing salt, preservatives and LOADS of sugar so i decided we would make some and see how it goes.

We started with the basics, Rolled Oats, Rice Bran, Puffed Rice and some dried fruit, we measured them out, mixed them together and wallah! DONE, sooo simple. I try to get Regan involved in cooking with me at least once a week, she loves it and so do i. I can't wait for Boston to be old enough to join in as well but for now i love having that one on one time with Regan.

The little munchkin just loves stirring, even if we end up with musei flicked all around the kitchen. ;-) Don't mind the hair either, we are having 'issues' with getting it up in the mornings, it's not worth the argument with her so it can just stay messy. Will save those arguments for when i really need it to be up.
So breakfast tomorrow will be museli, i just hope it tastes as good as it looks.


  1. Looks great! I hate that pretty much the only 'suitable' breakfast cereal is weetbix. G won't eat museli type cereal so she has just been having blueberries, a banana and a cup of milk lately!

  2. It's so frustrating isn't it... Regan doesn't like weetbix but she will eat the museli we made. I went to a seminar on Wednesday night about eating to stay young and the head of nutrition at santiarium was there and hopefully from what he was saying the shelf cereals will improve soon. :-)
