We've just come out of a mini heatwave (it was 39 on Friday!) so I mixed up a big batch of muesli for the week instead of baking granola. Homemade muesli is super quick to make and a bowl keeps me full until lunch time, which is a very rare thing :)
Coconut and cherry muesli with almonds and extras
You will need:
2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup of shredded coconut, dried cherries, almonds
2 tbsp pepitas
2 tsp bee pollen (optional, we have a jar in our pantry from making these smoothies. I add it for texture and colour, plus it's meant to be really good for you too!)
Roughly chop the dried cherries and almonds. Place all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Serve with a generous dollop of greek yoghurt, half a sliced banana, a small handful of raspberries and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey. Store the remainder in an air-tight container.
I'm excited to try different combinations of fruits and nuts in the coming weeks, like dried apricot and hazelnut. If you have a nice jar on hand you could easily give this as a gift to new parents or a friend with a lot on their plate.
