Chocolate Muesli Inspiration
I’ll tell you what was behind my Chocolate Muesli inspiration. So we all have one child it seems that you have to hide the veggies in the mince to get anything good into them.So, this was the same principle I applied to try to figure out how to get my Mr 15 to eat oats for breakfast. And divert his attention and subsequent arguments regarding other popular cereals he desired that I did NOT!This inspiration drew me to put together this blend. I had a couple of variables to consider and number one was, of course, the ingredients profile.I needed to keep to a #Live Clean ingredient profile as I wanted the blend to have the important nutritional value a growing child needs. The reaction has been a very satisfying and a pleasant surprise I must say for both Mr 15, his friends and some friends of mine all asking for seconds, more or the recipe.
- Inspiration number 1 – well nobody else has done it. Well sort of…You see, I saw a recipe that Jamie Oliver had put together. It was a blend called Chocolate granola dust, so I tried it out. I sent some to some friends who loved the flavour. Also, tried it with Mr 15 but we all decided that we didn’t like the oats ground down to form a dust like texture. So I decided to play around with maintaining the whole steamed rolled oats value in the blend. This then got the thumbs up and people seemed pleasantly surprised by the end result.
- Well, I had a packet of another brand, which shall not be named, given to me over Christmas. And Mr. 15 devoured it like he had never had them before. Seeing I am attempting to always reduce and control sugar intake in my home at least, this did not make me happy. He also won’t eat oats, so this got me thinking. As I disguise veggies in mince, why can’t I disguise the oats and dress them up as something delicious and nutritious? Would you believe it, he absolutely loves them. Surprised the pants off him actually. He devours them every morning and he loves how he is NOT hungry until morning tea at school. WINNING!!!
