I’m not going to hide the fact that I am a chronic snacker. I’m also not going to hide the fact that considering it’s currently just my husband and I at home, we go through a lot of food including the mostly-healthy snacks I bake and create. These chocolate, blueberry and oat cookies are delightful raw or baked!
I’ve been craving a combination of crunchy oats and coconut morphed with blueberries for ages after strolling through Pinterest and decided to come up with this dish. It is so healthy, loaded with healthy fats, complex carbohydrates, protein and fibre to keep you full and satisfied. These are perfect for breakfast or just as a snack with a side of coconut yoghurt or coconut cream!
I have been making my own muesli combinations for years as it is efficient, economical and you can add whatever ingredients you desire. My go to combination is always organic and if possible, locally sourced. They include organic rolled oats, chia seeds, flaxmeal, sesame seeds, almonds, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), sunflower seeds, coconut flakes and cinnamon. Although soaking your oats and milk overnight is essentially easier to digest, sometimes you do not feel like oats until the morning!
As the mornings become chillier, the breakfasts become warmer. I used organic, local Sundowner apples in this recipe which definitely brings the Autumn vibes. Served on top of warm oats and topped with activated walnuts, it is perfect.
