Toasted Oats Trail Mix

This is an American term that you may not have heard of if you're from the UK or Ireland. A trail mix is a snack mix that was originally developed as a convenient snack for hikers. Ingredients can vary depending on personal preference, most varieties include oats, nuts and dried fruit.

Simply turn our toasted oats into a trail mix by adding your favourite nuts or extra dried fruit. Trail mixes are rich in protein which contributes to muscle growth. Snacks high in protein will help subside cravings for junk food, keeping you full and sustained all day. We recommend pairing our Triple Chocolate Crunch toasted oats with a handful of almonds, peanuts, cashews and a Tbsp of sunflower seeds, dried cranberries would be great for extra zing. This can be made in advance, stored and portioned for easy snacking on the go.

Guilt Free Desserts: Toasted Oats Topped Crumble

Indulge in a guilt free dessert at the end of a busy day! Our Wild Fruit Crunch or Apple and Cinnamon Crunch would be a great topping for stewed fruit. Stewed fruits like apple and pears are delicious and a great way to use up any leftover or overripe fruits. They are also great for gut health due to the soluble gel like fibre component (the mushy bits) for gut and bowel health.

Easy stewed fruit method:

Start by selecting your choice of fruits. 5 apples and pears is a great amount and combo.

  • Core the fruits, but there's no need to peel them as the skin breaks down perfectly during the gentle cooking process. Cut the fruit into bite-sized chunks.
  • Next, place the prepared fruit in a pot and add 1/4 cup of water, along with a cinnamon stick.
  • For a touch of sweetness, consider adding a bit of maple syrup.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer gently for about 30 minutes. Adjust the cooking time if you prefer your fruit to have more texture.
