Se7en’s Crunchy Breakfast With Strawberry Milkshakes…

I said I would tell you what we are having for breakfast… Here it is, plain and simple and my kids are loving it:


I was cleaning out our pantry cupboard, all in the name of the Kitchen Cure,


And discovered all these lovely seeds that I hadn’t looked at in a while.

Let’s Meet the Players:


  • 2 cups of raw oats
  • 1/2 a cup of sesame seeds
  • 1/2 a cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 of a cup of poppy seeds
  • 1/4 of a cup of honey

This was enough to make a jar of crunchy cereal and absolutely none of the ingredients were measured… it is one of those recipes that you can adapt to fit you. Also there are a lot of things you can add in that we didn’t have in stock: pumpkin seeds, chopped up dried fruit, raisins, whatever.

Let’s Play the Game:


Step 1: Place your oats in a non-stick pan, and heat it gently.


Step 2: The oats will start to roast, stir gently.


Step 3: Add the rest of the seeds to the pan.


Step 4: Once all your seeds are heated through and starting to roast, pour your honey into the pan. A little honey really does go a long way, especially when it is warm.


Step 5: Stir the honey through the mixture.


Step 6: Once your cereal is toasted enough for you pop it in an open dish to cool.


Step 7: We just store ours in a glass jar. And serve it with fresh yogurt. Yummy!!!

And since it’s the weekend we added River Cottage milkshakes to the mix… freeze some hulled strawberries overnight, cover them with milk in the blender and shoooossh it up… yum!!! You can add castor sugar to your blender when you mix it up, but I never do…and I have never had any complaints.


Anything but complaints!!!

  1. What a great breakfast – and so healthy, too. I am about to buy a blender as my girls want to make their own smoothies … (we haven’t made them before!) Can you recommend your blender? Thanks!

  2. We’ve been eating granola lately too. I like to add dried fruits.

    (I wish you had a complete feed instead of the partial feed.)

  3. What a yummy looking breakfast. I’ve just checked and I have all the ingredients, including the frozen strawberries. I’ll have a go at this at the weekend. Yum!

  4. Hi Jimmie – I am liking the idea of dried fruit more and more and think I need to add some to our pantry!!! And I think your partial feed/complete feed may well be a little bit of a higher grade question for me!!! But I will look into it for you!!! Have a great day!!!

  5. Hay KM, Yummm indeed!!! And just so easy to prepare!!! Tell me about blenders… Don’t I wish I knew of a great blender!!! Hope you are all having a great week!!!
