Kalyn created this great event and
Haalo is now helping her keeping it together :)

this morning the rain poured down, no walking, no working in the garden.
I didn't have much feeling doing housework so I decided to try a recipe in
doing homemade müsli.
usually I do it tender,
leaving the oat flakes soaking in milk and grated apples over the night

(jamie oliver recipe)
but my kids asked me if it was possible to make a crunchy müsli,
like the Vitalis

hmmmmm....why not!

this is a mix of two recipes
one from the book
ed. Gribaudo - Parragon
and the other from the book
Bonniers Kokbok
ed. Albert Bonniers Förlag

Crunchy Homemade Müsli


yuo need:

250gr of rolled oats
100ml water
2 apples
2 tbsp of clear honey, corn or maple sirup
1 tsp of ground cinammon

to add:
dry coco flakes
grated nuts of all kinds

turn the oven at 160°C.
in a mix the oat flakes together with the apples (peeled and cut in small cubes)
put the water to boil, adding the honey/sirup and the cinnamon.
when the honey/sirup is melted pour the boiling mixture over the flakes/apples cubes.
mix well.

spread the flakes in a tin layer on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
the thinner the layer is the quicker and more even it dries.
let dry for ca 40min.
the take out the try and and raisins, dry coco flakes and grated nuts.
mix and put back in the oven for another 10min.
let cool compleately and put in a tight glass jar.



I don't know how long this will conserve, mine lasted fot 2 days :)
then I had to do redo it, dobbling the dose and hoping it will last a little longer.
you can also add chopped prunes, figs, apricots.
my suggestion is allways to add the fruit at the end.
if you put it in the oven from the beginning it can get to dry and very hard.

As I live in a very charming place it never rains for to long :)
in the afternoon, the rains stopped, coloured the lake and the sky in wonderful grey tones
