For a new twist on a healthy, satisfying breakfast, try this homemade toasted muesli. It’s lower in fat and sugar than granola, but higher in fibre and protein.



2 cups
large-flake oats
1/2 cup
1/2 cup
finely chopped toasted walnuts or almonds
1/2 cup
sweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup
hemp hearts or flax meal
1/4 tsp


  • HEAT a large frying pan over medium. Toast oats, stirring occasionally, until golden, 4 to 5 min. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • TOAST pepitas, stirring often, until they puff up slightly, about 8 min. Stir into oats along with walnuts, coconut, flax meal and salt.

To make a yogurt parfait

Layer muesli with yogurt and fresh fruit – we love it with juicy, in-season oranges and just a touch of honey.
