I'm honoured and thrilled to have this recipe from the lovely Naomi from Raw Gems*.  Here is her recipe for Homemade Muesli.  Thanks Naomi! xo

~~~~~~

Muesli is very easy to make!  You can add whatever you like to suit your own tastebuds. Here’s what I used in mine.  All the ingredients that I use are organic.

Ingredients:

4 cups of oats

1 cup bran

1 cup Puffed rice 

1 cup Puffed buckwheat 

1 cup shredded coconut 

1 cup coconut chips (I prefer Maple)

1 cup Sultanas

½ cup Sun flower seeds 

½ cup Pepitas seeds

½ cup Goji berries

½ cup Cranberries

½ cup Slithered Almond 

½ cup Currants 

Method:

Add all ingredients in a large bowl or container, layer by layer. Once all ingredients are in the container, stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is even throughout.  Enjoy with your favourite milk - my favourite is activated almond milk.

Save remaining muesli in an air-tight container.  Enjoy!

Homemade Fudge with Coconut Sprinkles. Vegan, Raw, and Paleo friendly! July 13 2015, 0 Comments

I have the BEST recipe for homemade fudge - it's Paleo and Vegan, healthy and delicious.

This is perfect to make for the unannounced guest ("Hey, can we pop in for a quick cuppa?") or last minute 'bring a plate to share' function.

Here it is:

BLITZ these items (I use my blender):

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cup walnuts

1 tbsp macadamia oil

2 pinches salt

 

When finished, stir through 50 grams of our COCONUT SPRINKLES.  I prefer to use either Maple, Himalayan Salt, or Plain.  But, if you prefer to add a bit of extra spice, use the Sweet Chilli.  

Spread mix into a glass baking dish (I usually line mine with cling wrap or baking paper).  Sprinkle COCONUT SPRINKLES on top.  

Freeze 1 hour.

Get ready for the compliments - this is a super easy and quick recipe to make and is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
