Sundayfunday rawnola breakfast

On the weekends we sometimes have a lay in and let the kids make their own breakfast. For those days it’s good to have something already prepared and I like to make “rawnola” from oats, nuts, seeds, dried and fresh fruit. In the morning they can just help themselves to this and add milk or yoghurt and the fresh fruit of their choice. Undoubtedly they add an extra glugg of honey too when I’m not watching… . It’s quick and easy, healty and tasty – and it’s nice to know that the kids are eatings something proper – even though I’m lazying about in bed with a good book.

Quite a while ago, I ground up nuts and seeds into a semi-fine powder and sold this to the kids as “running powder”. It’s the only way to get some of the really good nuts and seeds into them, some of the really good ones that they don’t particularly like. Ground up they don’t mind. I make a batch of this once in a a while and store but you can also buy it ready made. Sometimes I add a little cinnamon or cardamom for extra flavour.
