As I mentioned earlier in the week, I have a new food processor/juicer/blender toy and I’m loving playing with it, so pretty much everything I cook at the moment has at least one element going through the machine!

I have to get up earlier at his to get to work, so decided to whip up some muesli muffins packed full of grains, fruit and nuts that I can eat on the go.
