Toasted Muesli with Cashews, Coconut and Cherries


2 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons chia seeds
3/4 cup cashew halves
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup toasted coconut chips



  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, cinnamon, chia seeds and cashew halves and stir until combined. Pour in the maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla and stir until oats are evenly coated. Do NOT add golden raisins, cherries and coconut chips yet. 
  3. Pour oat mixture onto the baking sheet and bake until the oats are lightly golden, stirring halfway, about 12 minutes.
  4. Remove muesli from oven and pour into a large mixing bowl. Stir in golden raisins, cherries and toasted coconut.
  5. Store muesli in an airtight container at room temperature or in the freezer in a freezer-safe bag (no defrosting time required).
