Toasted Oat Muesli with Summer Fruit & Yogurt


Toasted Oat Muesli with Summer Fruit & Yogurt

We like to think of the pantry as a toolkit. Stocked with high-quality staples, healthy, delicious meals are never more than a few minutes away. “High quality” is the key phrase, though – to get delicious results, you have to start with the good stuff. Here’s a quick, toasty muesli recipe to enjoy with summer’s bounty. Not-too-sweet, extra crunchy, and nutty, healthy oats are tossed with omega-rich nuts and sesame seeds and glazed with a hint of maple syrup or honey and fruity olive oil. A pinch of salt and a hint of vanilla provide a lovely foil for berries, peaches, and–later in the summer–juicy pears. This is easily doubled or tripled, so make a big batch and enjoy breakfast or snacks on the go for days on end!

Total Time: 20 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds or hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, sesame seeds, and nuts and toss to combine. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup or honey, brown sugar, olive oil, water, vanilla, and sea salt.
  3. Pour liquid mixture over oat mixture and combine well with your hands until oats are thoroughly covered.
  4. Spread onto a baking sheet with sides and bake, tossing occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until golden and toasted. Cool and store in an airtight container.
