Spiced Ginger, Orange and Fig Muesli


It’s so great having a go-to muesli recipe that you can play around with; changing the flavours slightly, and substituting fruit and nuts for others – whatever takes your fancy at the time. I prefer to keep my muesli relatively simple (but packed full of flavour) and then I can add fruit and yoghurt to it.


  • 4 T coconut oil
  • 3 T maple syrup / honey
  • 2 t ginger
  • 3 T cinnamon
