I have been blogging a little lately on things that I do to prepare to make life easier of a morning to get the twins to school on time.
The twins are not always morning eaters. On a weekend or school holidays that is not a problem because they will have a smoothie or a cup of milk and some fruit when they first wake and then we have breakfast later. Obviously this does not work during school term when we need to be out the door at 8am.
On days that they are not keen to have something substantial, the one thing I can always rely on that they will have is a plate of fruit and some yogurt. Don't get me wrong, this is a great breakfast, but it does not sustain my cherubs until morning tea time at school.
I often think up enticing names for creations for the twins to go "Can we have some Mummy" and as they love my apple crumble, breakfast crumble was born! Packed with goodness this is perfect over yogurt and I have even been known to put 1/4 cup into the blender with some milk and yogurt and made them a substantial smoothie.
For those of you who send your children to school with yogurt it is a great alternative to plain yogurt.
Quick and easy to do, I make a batch on a Sunday and place it into containers and it will last the school week in the fridge.
Prep 10 min // Cook 20 min
3 Apples peeled and cut into small pieces
2 pears peeled and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup medjool dates diced
1/4 cup sultanas
2 tbs pepitas (or pumpkin seeds)
2 tbs dried goji berries
2 tbs chia seeds
2 tbs pumpkin seeds
2 cups oats (or you can use 1 cup oats and 1 cup granola )
1 tbs LSA Mix
3 tbs honey
1 tsp brown sugar
Place apples, pears, dates, brown sugar and 1 tbs honey into a saucepan and add a little bit of water. Cook over a low heat stirring every now and then until the fruit is soft and a thick caramel has coated the fruit. (if mix becomes dry add a little more water).
While cooking add all remaining ingredients (except the honey) into a bowl and mix well.
When the fruit is cooked add to the dry ingredients and the remaining 2 tbs honey and mix through well.
Place into containers and store in the fridge and use as required.
