Suitable from 12 months

Chocolate & walnut muesli
In case you haven’t noticed, I love experimenting. When I’m in a creative food mood, I can’t think of anything better than opening my drawers and cupboards and concocting something new from the ingredients inside. This also happens when I’ve run out of the ingredients I usually use for a particular recipe. I’ve been on a bit of a muesli kick recently, but this weekend we were very busy with parties and dinners and I didn’t have time to go shopping. On Sunday morning when I opened my breakfast cupboard, all I found was a bag of walnuts my husband and his friends had bought to go with their cheese and grapes, some whole cocoa beans, dessicated coconut and cashews. My first thought? Chocolate porridge!

This chocolate and walnut muesli is another grain-free, gluten-free concoction for both children and adults. Like all my favourite recipes, it is simple, delicious and healthy. The recipe is suitable for those on a paleo diet as well as a coeliac diet. I’ve offered versions of this to my son, other people’s children, my husband and various other friends and family members and everyone loves it.

Recipe tips
This recipe works hot or cold. For a warm version, simply heat the milk before pouring over the mixture. Vary the amount of liquid depending on whether you like a dense or more liquid texture. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients, simply substitute or omit.

For dry grinding I use my Bamix hand-blender. It is the best blender I’ve found for grinding up nuts and seeds very quickly, but you can use any hand-blender or food processor if you don’t have a Bamix. You can buy a Bamix mixer here.
