I decided to keep going with Cookbook Mondays during MoFo because I would really like to keep this habit! The Beloved really wanted me to have a go at making Simon Bryant's Coffee & Cocoa Cereal from Vegies so since I was busy with coffee and chocolate yesterday I thought it would be good to make use of the coffee shots while he was making them. The only thing non vegan in the recipe was honey, so I substituted rice syrup and it was fine. I couldn't get hold of wattleseed but I don't think it made a huge difference. I would like to try it with the wattleseed when I order some online. It's not overly sweet, which is good because I don't like really sweet cereal.
This recipe has no less than eight - yes EIGHT shots of coffee. The Beloved loves coffee, so it suits him to a tee, but if it were for me I would make it with far less! Simon says it should take a couple of hours in the oven to dry, it took about three. Next time I'll make it in the dehydrator and leave it over night so I don't have to keep checking it. Definitely a gourmet breakfast, but if you are a coffee lover you will adore it!
