For those of you that know me, you’ll know I am a big oats fan (see my overnight oats recipe here: OATS OH SO EASY!) – but there are sometimes days (especially in the summer), when I just don’t feel like eating oats. What is one to do?!

This recipe is inspired by Jamie Oliver – I am a big fan! School mornings will be amazingly fast and convenient with this mega mix of brilliant nutrient rich ingredients. I did change it up quite a bit, so grab a pen folks!

With no added sugar, this vegan power powder is loaded with healthy fats from the nuts and seeds as well as a fair dose of protein, and fibre from the oats! The cocoa and coffee is rich in polyphenols (naturally occurring antioxidants) giving the kids’ immune systems a big boost.

As per usual, the sky is the limit with this recipe. You can really use any nuts, any dried fruits and add in any other flavourings you like. I indicated below the exact ingredients I used. I used a mix of steel cut oats and rolled oats, but the choice is really yours depending on your preferences. The best part is it makes 32 servings (50g each). Store it in an airtight container, or even the freezer and you’ll be good to go.


  1. 400g mixed steel cut and rolled oats

  1. 120g dried fruit (mango, pineapple, apricot, apple)

  2. 150g mixed nuts (almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts)

  3. 50 grams seeds (sunflower, sesame, pumpkin and chia)

  4. 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  5. 1 teaspoon coffee


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Place the oats, nuts and seeds on a sheet tray. Toss together and roast for 15 minutes. Stir half way through.

  3. Once removed from the oven, stir the dried fruit, coffee and cocoa into the mix.

  4. In batches blitz to a rough powder in a food processor and store in an a

  1. ENJOY! The options are endless when serving it – you can make a porridge with milk (hot or cold), add it to a smoothie, use it in your pancake base or muffin mix or (my personal favourite) serve it with plain fat free yoghurt and a handful of sliced fruit.

Give it a try – let me know what you think!
