What´s better than have muesli for breakfast? But even our team wants to try out some variations of cereal. And Laura just had a great idea: Selfmade crumble with plums!
80g grounded almonds
4 EL honey
1 spoon lemon juice
1 pack of vanilla sugar
Cut the plump into small pieces and mix them with the vanilla sugar and the lemon juice. Fill this mixture in small bottles. For the next step stir muesli, almonds, honey, flour and butter and put it over the plump mixture. Put the bottles in the oven (185°C) for 12 minutes.
That´s the phrase you will hear on Friday very often. Children in scary cutomes will travel from house to house asking for some sweets.
We came up with a delicious recipe, which is a nice alternative for chocolate and sweets. For sure the cooking is so simple that you can easily finish it til October 31th.
100g brown sugar
2 spoons flour
100g grounded hazelnuts
Preheat the oven at 180°C. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and shape some small balls. Afterwards strike them flat and put them on a baking plate covered with parchment paper. Bake it for at least 10 minutes. And enjoy!
Vegetables and muesli? Sounds strange, but tastes better than you can image.
While autumn leaves cover the pathways and the weather gets more stormy, we rediscovered the pleasure and gusto of a pumpkin. This orange coloured vegetable is so multifarious: used for cooking, used for baking, used for crafting and much more.
We tried our old muesli bar recipe in an autumn-like way.
60g apple sauce
50g agave nectar
50 pecan nuts
You just have to mix flour with muesli and add apple sauce, agave nectar and honey. Give the mixture on a baking tray and push it in the oven (170°C) for about 20 minutes. Cut it in pieces und enjoy!
Everyone should know them. They are so delicious, so red and just so good: cranberries. They are not just for decoration or scenery. Known for their health benefits and ripping tartness we love them in everything – in marmalade, in dips and sauces, in cake and desserts. But especially in muesli!
Already the American Indians enjoyed the cranberries in similar ways to our traditions nowadays: dried and sweetened. The red fruits in our muesli are sweetened with apple sirup, what perfectly fits to walnuts, apple pieces and hazelnuts.
Cranberries usually reach their peak in October – that´s the best time of the year to buy them. You can also freeze them for a several years, so you can enjoy them in due season.
A classic Bircher-muesli is a true enjoyment. But I wanted to have a different Bircher taste: more fruity, more creamy and with some cherries. So I started a research and tried these recipes. They are so easy and so good – please try them out! Otherwise you would miss a real delicacy.
Bircher – classic is timeless:
1 spoon almonds
1 table spoon blueberry
1 table spoon raspberries
optional: add a bit sugar
Bircher – liasion between cherry and cinnamon:
1 table spoon almonds
2 spoons sour cherries
Bircher – creamy like custard:
1 spoon almonds
2 table spoon yogurt
2 table spoon orange juice
1 table spoon raspberries
1 table spoon blueberries
Couch: a long upholstered piece of furniture for serveral people to sit on – this is the definition of the Oxford Dictonary. Remembering that definition and surrunded by umpteen mueslis we started a mission: Let´s construct a sofa out of muesli-tubes!
With this idea in mind we had considerations, accurate measurements and professional discussions. It was a piece of hard work, but now we are pround and love our new selfmade (!) couch. It´s perfect for drinking a cup of coffee, talking about the world of muesli or the latest news!
You need: 120 empty muesli-tubes, a stapler and many tacker-needles, a wooden board, 2 seat cushions and patience.
Summer is quickly passing by and probably you have some things you want to do before autum. Our all-time favorite: having a barbecue in the garden while a tepid late summer-evening. A friend of yours is playing gituar, some girls are giggeling and the trees are draped with beautiful colored paper-windsocks.
The instruction for these windsocks is quiet easy and fun!
1. Cut the paper to the needed length. Glue the paper onto the can.
2. Cut another paper into smaller decorative pieces and glue them also onto the can, as you like it.
3. Punch a small hole at the bottom and string twine to hang the windsock.
4. Then cut the wrapping paper into pieces with different length. Glue the pieces onto the inside of the can.
