Nut free muesli
Last week we had an appointment with a paediatric dietician, to discuss Edie and her picky eating, as she was recently diagnosed as anaemic and low in B12 and I have been pulling my hair out trying to get a decent amount of meat and other iron rich foods into her.
The advice I was given was that, her fussiness was not a result of textural issue or not liking any of the food on offer, it is simply a case of snacks being offered too frequently (this didn’t surprise me, being I had already labelled myself the snack wench)
Moving forward, we are to stick to offering food at breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, with no constant grazing in between, and we need to tweak the meals to ensure there is more protein in each meal, to ensure both girls feel fuller for longer. This is no easy feat for a child who refuses to eat egg ( unless its in corn fritters etc) and can’t eat nuts! So I will keep you posted with any good high protein, kid friendly and approved recipe’s I can come up with, starting with this yummy breakfast muesli!
As is with the muesli bars, you can sub the ingredients to suit whatever grain/seeds etc you have in the cupboard, you can also add dried fruit or coconut flakes to help sweeten it up!
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups brown rice flakes ( can sub with puffed brown rice)
1/2 cup quinoa flakes ( can sub with quinoa puffs or buckwheat etc)
3 tbsp pepitas
3 tbsp sunflower seeds
2 tbsp hemp seeds
2 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tbsp psyllium husk
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
Preheat oven to 150 degrees celcius and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir in well
Sprinkle over baking tray and spread out
Place in oven for 20 mins, stirring mixture over once or twice to ensure even toasting.
Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight jar or container.
Serve with fresh fruit and yoghurt and/or milk of choice!
