Being relatively new to the world of blogging, I have never followed anybody’s blogs until recently…and oh what a world it is! I am loving discovering new blogs and finding inspiration and ideas. I also love the community feel a lot of the blogs have. One of my recent blog discoveries is “Planning with Kids” (www.planningwithkids.com – sorry I still don’t know how to do links properly…must learn!!). As a mum of four young children I love this blog but I think a lot of her organisational skills could help anyone, no matter what stage of life they are at :) Anyway, reading one of her recent blog enteries I discovered a Choc Chip Muesli Slice Recipe which I have tweaked slightly and converted to a Thermomix recipe. So thank you Nicole for the inspiration for this recipe. This is a fantastic, quick slice…in fact yesterday when I made it I was in such a rush that I just threw all the ingredients in the Thermomix bowl, mixed it up and away I went and it turned out just as nice. I hope you enjoy xx
