Toasted Muesli

Hi all, Amanda from Simple Home Cook here. Toasted muesli can make a lovely breakfast, a good filler for the lunchbox or after school snack. The beauty is that you can add whatever ingredients your family like. Load it up with nuts, leave out the coconut – it doesn’t matter as it will still taste amazing. I put it in little cups for the kids to take in their lunch box with a small tub of yoghurt.

It is easy to make and you can even have the kids help.

Amanda started on this journey when her 3rd child was born, and feeding a family of 5 became even more of a challenge with three children under 3 1/2 years of age! She started working on a list of recipes that were simple and affordable that she could make ahead of time so she wasn’t stuck in the kitchen at 5pm when the household duties kicked up a notch. Amanda’s goal is to create simple meals that anyone can cook and enjoy without spending hours in the kitchen. Her recipes are perfect for that busy weeknight dinner, snacks to fill the lunch boxes or for students learning to cook. It’s simple home cooking at its best to free up your time to enjoy the fun things in life — your kids! Check out her cookbooks at and her Simple Home Cook Facebook page here:
