The weekends are important to the K-D’s and most of our weekend time together tends to focus around mealtimes.
I work Monday-Friday whilst the OH works shifts. I don’t eat breakfast at home during the week and the other half is only around for weekend dinners every other week, so breakfast is our important meal at the weekends.
Dexter is a cereal fiend. He loves to pick a 1st, 2nd and 3rd cereal to eat each morning. He’s a focused, determined piggie.
Jordan’s Cereal sent us some boxes of their Country Crisp and a bag of granola to try.
I’ve always secretly lusted after the Country Crisp range but could never justify spending more than a few quid on a box of cereal for breakfast. The chocolate crisp definitely lived up to my expectations and I found myself muttering “sorry Dexter, this is only for Mummies” until the box was empty. The raspberry crisp was still scrummy but one that I was happy to share with the toddler.
I’ve eaten the granola at work and it definitely keeps me full and going until lunchtime.
I tried to be versatile with the cereals and make them go a bit further than just breakfast. Other than eating them as a snack throughout the day (you try to put a full box down) and munching on them whilst watching a film, I also made some muffins with the Chocolate Crisp and some Flapjacks with the Granola.
Ingredients (makes 12)
- 200g caster sugar
- 200g margarine or unsalted butter
- 200g self-raising flour
- 200g Jordans Country Crisp (any flavour)
- 2 blackened bananas, mashed up
- 3 medium eggs
Method: well, erm, mix it all together and pop in the oven (180c/gas mark 4) until they’ve risen nicely.
Honey Granola Flapjacks
Ingredients (makes 12)
- 200g Demerara sugar
- 200g unsalted butter
- 200g Jordans Granola
- 200g honey
Method: melt the honey, butter and sugar in a saucepan until the sugar has dissolved. Add the Granola to the mixture. Add the mixture to a baking tray, lined with baking paper. Bake for about 15-20 mins at 180c/gas mark 4. Let the flapjacks cool and then slice.
I will definitely be buying the Chocolate Crisp again, purely to feed my new-found addiction, I’m still not sure about sharing though…..
Thanks for reading
Mummy over and out
