Our thoughts on this recipe

It is a straightforward recipe that is pretty much a no-brainer. You probably already have most of these ingredients at home. What’s more is that the sweetness of the muffin comes from the apples and muesli as well, adding some natural sweetness that can’t be found elsewhere. For added nutrition and flavour, warm up the muffins in the oven and top with nut butter for a tasty treat on the go. Find out how to make your nut butter down below!

Recipe #2 Coconut Chia Pudding With Muesli

Recipe #2 Coconut Chia Pudding With Muesli

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250ml) coconut milk
  • 1 cup (250ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup (40g) roughly chopped Medjool dates
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 1/2 cup (80g) chia seeds
  • 125g strawberries, roughly chopped

Muesli topping

Instructions

  1. To make the chia pudding, combine the coconut milk, almond milk, date and cinnamon quill in a saucepan.
  2. Place over medium-low heat, cover and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool and infuse. Remove the cinnamon quill (rinse, dry and keep for future use).
  3. Pour into a bowl and stir through the chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate overnight. For the muesli, preheat the oven to 140°C and line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  4. Combine the muesli, coconut and allspice in a large bowl. Stir the tahini and honey together in a small bowl, then add to the muesli mixture. Stir through until evenly combined. Spread evenly onto the tray and cook, stirring occasionally (be gentle as you want it to clump into crunchy clusters), for 1 hour or until golden.
  5. Cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
  6. The next day, layer the chia pudding into bowls or jars with some muesli and strawberries.
