Tea Time - Muesli Biscuits

Morning and Afternoon Tea are very important in this house. Without them, the small person gets Very Hungry, and that is a troublesome time for everyone involved.

I have to admit, muesli biscuits are one of my favourites to bake. You can "cheat" and use a pre-made muesli, or you can start from scratch with rolled oats and add all your favourite bits. The variations are endless, and the result is a very wholesome little snack, full of filling fibre. They also make a fantastic gift for a mum with a new baby. If you add a couple of tablespoons of Brewer's Yeast and some LSA meal, it turns ordinary muesli biscuits into a super snack to help boost breastmilk production and give a tired mum some lasting energy (especially good for those 3am feeds).

They're also so easy to make that they're a great recipe for getting a small person helping in the kitchen. We didn't even measure the ingredients, we just threw in "enough" of everything. There's apricots, sultanas, puffed wheats, hazelnut meal, coconut, honey and golden syrup.

But if you need a recipe, this one from Taste.com.au fits the bill nicely.
