This is one of those recipes that’s so simple that you’ll wonder why it’s taken you so long to try it. I came across it ages ago and never quite got round to trying it. Now it’s a staple part of my breakfasts.


  • 300g oats
  • 50g walnuts
  • 50g pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 150g mixed dried fruit
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 50g dark chocolate chips


Take all your dry ingredients – the oats, nuts, seeds, chocolate, fruit, cinnamon and salt – and put them in to a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, melt the coconut oil and then add it to the dry ingredients along with the honey.

Use a wooden spoon to mix everything together – the oil and honey will be enough to coat everything in the bowl.

Preheat the oven to 180ÂșC. Spread the oats out over a couple of baking trays and gently toast them in the oven for about 30 minutes, pausing half way through to turn the oats over so both sides get equally toasted.

All the trays to cool fully before decanting in to a large jar, ready to pop open the next time the cereal fix takes you.
