recipe name

April 3rd, 2010

This is an excellent everyday breakfast, the plums keep in the freezer for months and really make the meal even if they do turn your milk purple.

Makes eight serves.



  • 4 cups of oats
  • 1/2 cup of shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 1 cup of all-bran
  • 1 cup of puffed rice
  • 1/4 cup of flaked almonds
  • 1/4 cup of pepitas
  • 1/4 cup of currants
  • 1/4 cup of craisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Stewed plums

  • 1 kilogram of plums
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


Cut the plums in half and remove the stones. Place in a small saucepan with the sugar and a quarter cup of water. Simmer over a low heat for an hour.

Turn the oven on to a high heat. Mix the oats and maple syrup together in a large bowl. Transfer the oats to a baking tray and place the tray in to oven.

After 5 minutes sprinkle the shredded coconut on top of the oven. Bake for another 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Combine all the remaining muesli ingredients together. Store in an airtight container.

Blend the cooled plums until smooth. The plums can be stored in the fridge or freezer.
