Breakfast time has become pretty mundane for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my green smoothies, but there are only a certain number of flavour combinations a girl can come up (unless you’re Katherine from Green Thickies) so after a good 6 months of smoothie dedication, I figured I’d give my blender a rest, branch out and do something crazy… like create my own breakfast friendly Healthy Muesli Slice!
The thing I love most about this idea, apart from the convenience and absolutely no morning preparation, is that it is nutrient dense and packed with super food goodness. Oats are little nutritional powerhouses in themselves containing iron, protein, fiber, zinc, and magnesium, while Chia seeds are a great source of omega 3, and goji berries are high in vitamin C and beta-carotene.
As a breakfast meal, this muesli slice recipe goes great with some fresh fruit and natural yoghurt but you can also eat it by itself as a morning or afternoon snack.
1 ½ cups Rolled Oats
½ cup Pepita Seeds
½ cup Sunflower Seeds
½ cup roughly chopped Almonds
½ cup Navitas Goji Berries
½ cup dry shredded Coconut
½ cup finely chopped Dates
¼ cup Chia Co Chia Seeds
1/3 cup Banaban Coconut Oil
2/3 cup raw Honey
- Preheat oven to 160 degrees
- Place oats, pepita seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, goji berries, coconut, dates, and chia seeds in a large bowl and mix through.
- Lightly heat coconut oil in a saucepan until melted (this will only take about 30 seconds), then remove from heat, add honey and stir through.
- Add coconut oil and honey to dry mixture and fold through with a wooden spoon until fully combined.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper (I used a rectangle loaf tin here because I wanted the slice to be thicker) scrape mixture onto the tray, and pack tightly using a spatula.
- Bake for around 20-25 minutes but keep an eye on it and be very careful not to overcook.
- Once cooked, remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes, then place in the fridge to set.
- Cut and serve in slices
