  • 2 cups rolled oats* (see recipe notes) (Use gluten-free oats if needed.)
  • 1/4 cup almond slivers
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ~2 TB honey OR sorghum syrup OR agave syrup
  • For serving: milk or milk substitute
  • Optional add-ins: dried fruit or fresh fruit


For Toasted Muesli (takes approximately 15-20 minutes):

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Spread oats, coconut, and almonds over baking sheet in a thin layer.  Drizzle honey (or other sweetener) over oats.  Bake 10 minutes until oats are golden brown.
  3. Allow oats to cool, and then mix in the cacao nibs.  Serve immediately with milk or milk substitute, or store in an airtight container or bag.  Use within 1-2 weeks, or freeze for up to 2 months.

For Quick Muesli (takes less than 5 minutes):

  1. Mix oats, almonds, cacao, and coconut together.  Serve immediately drizzled with honey (or preferred sweetener) and milk, or store in an airtight container or bag. Use within 1-2 weeks, or freeze for up to 2 months.

Recipe Notes

*Note: Make sure to use rolled oats, not steel cut oats, for your muesli.  You can substitute instant oats, but your muesli will have less texture.
