Toasted Coconut Muesli Cereal

This breakfast muesli is healthy, delicious & easy to make. The best part of all is that it’s a cheap breakfast- just visit the bulk bin section of your local grocery store for organic oats, nuts and coconut flakes and use pantry-staples like maple syrup, brown sugar and coconut oil to seal the deal. Pair with your favorite non-dairy yogurt or milk and some fruit for a perfect meal. Pictured in this recipe is vanilla coconut milk yogurt with fresh chopped cherries, but I won’t lie my absolute favorite way to eat this cereal is with sliced banana and vanilla rice milk. No matter how you serve it- it’s delicious 🙂

Makes: Approximately 8 servings

1 serving: 1/2 cup muesli

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachio nuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

Option to pair with muesli:

  • Coconut milk yogurt or coconut milk beverage, rice milk, almond milk, or another favorite non-dairy milk
  • Fresh chopped cherries, bananas, strawberries, etc (note: cherries will make it very sweet)

To Make:

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Tip: Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature so the coconut oil does not solidify before mixing.

In a large mixing bowl, mix raw almonds, shelled pistachio nuts, brown sugar and coconut flakes. Add 4 Tbsp coconut oil (liquified at room temperature or slightly warmed) and continue to toss ingredients.

Spray two glass casserole dishes with coconut oil cooking spray (they have it at Trader Joe’s and it’s amazing to bake with). Pour mixture into glass casserole dishes and spread evenly on the bottom (there should be a thin layer of granola cereal in each one). Drizzle 1 Tbsp maple syrup evenly over each dish (so 2 Tbsp total between the two dishes) and toss ingredients once more to spread the maple syrup throughout the mixture.

Bake for 15 minutes, toss the granola with a wooden spoon to avoid burning and continue to bake for another 12-15 minutes (27- 30 minutes total). Make sure to check the coconut flakes in the last 5 minutes and that they are not burning. Remove from oven.

Serve with your favorite non-dairy yogurt or milk and fresh fruit.
