Farmhouse Muesli was inspired from having grown up on my grandparents farm in Croatia.
As a young child I would hesitantly rise at 5am to chop wood so that the house & stove a could be heated. Meanwhile, Baka (Grandma) Kata would be milking the cow for fresh creamy milk to pour over oats for breakfast.
For a child, a bowl of oats is bland so Baka would add either left over apple or cherry strudel, poppy seed cake, rosehip/plum jam or freshly picked seasonal fruit to make it more exciting to eat.
I went from eating oats reluctantly to looking forward to my breakfast every day. I learnt that a simple bowl of oats can be seriously delicious!
I now live in the great food region of Daylesford and am creating my own delicious oat recipes, inspired by those very mornings.
