Toasted Muesli with Coconut, Dark Chocolate and Macadamia Nuts

Since it's so versatile and easy to transport, Muesli makes the best treat to have at work, take it with you on the road or just enjoy it as a meal with a variety of toppings. Put it in a mason jar, screw on the lid, and take it with you! Oats are very satisfying and this snack can keep you full for hours. The end result is a lightly sweetened, slightly crunchy muesli. Try it with cold oat milk, or heat it up together with the milk to create a hot cereal. The add ons are endless from coconut yogurt to dried fruit, fresh fruit or seeds. I love the texture, flavors, flexibility and creativity in this delicious muesli!

  • 4 cups oats
  • 1 ½ cups macadamia nuts chopped
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 3 TB maple syrup
  • 2 TB coconut oil melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips 70% or higher
  • 1 cup dates chopped
  • Optional Toppings: Dried fruit, fresh fruit, cacao nibs or seeds.


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a Silpat (or parchment paper).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, salt and cinnamon.
  • Mix well.
  • Then pour the maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract into the mix and combine ingredients.
  • *DO NOT add the chocolate chips yet; those are added after baking. If you want a little melted chocolate on top, you can add it when it comes out warm from the oven.
  • Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and bake until the oats and coconut flakes are lightly golden.
  • Toss halfway, about 15 minutes, for even baking.
  • Remove from the oven when done.
  • Let the muesli cool completely before mixing in the chocolate chips.
  • Now add the chocolate chips, dates and anything else you'd enjoy in the muesli.
  • Enjoy a bowl of toasted muesli with whatever you like or just by itself.
  • Store the cooled muesli in a glass dish or silicon bag.

Roasted Triple Squash with Brussels Sprouts, Pecans and Cauli Crumble

This delish dish is packed with flavor, antioxidants, colorful nutrients and crunch! 3 different squash (Acorn, Butternut and Honey Nut) make this one healthy meal as they are rich sources of vitamins A, C, K, and minerals like magnesium, potassium, manganese, coppper, phosphorus, calcium and iron. The topping, Cauli Crumble, takes just a few minutes to cook and adds a substantial amount of fiber and protein to the meal. This is a simple dish that is great for the holidays or any day of the week!

Spicy Spud Balls

These spicy spud balls are packed full of flavor with fresh herbs, spices, oats and red potatoes. They are incredibly delicious and nutritious with a nice crunchy outside. I’ve made many versions of balls and burgers using beans and grains but never potatoes. So why not try it! I can honestly say they were way better than I’d expected them to be and a big hit with my taste tester. We enjoyed eating them with pasta, salad and just by themselves with sauce.

Raspberry Jam Bars

This recipe is a one-bowl wonder that comes together in minutes and can be served warm, chilled or at room temp. Sweet, tart and gooey, these raspberry jam bars are a crowd pleaser!
While the top and bottom layers are made from the same batter, they bake up differently. The bottom is soft and chewy while the top is crisp and crunchy.
The bars can be enjoyed for breakfast with tea, for dessert or anytime you feel like treating yourself! *This recipe is so versatile. You can use different flours, nuts and jams. Experiment and mix it up!
