I’ve been wanting to make this for so long, but I was hesitant to give myself access to the chocolate-covered espresso beans. Self-control is not my strength. I have excellent self-control about items that I know I can’t have (all mainstream junk food, i.e. Doritos) and non-herbie items (a buttery cinnamon roll), but when it comes to “okay” foods (peanut butter, dark chocolate), I have a hard time putting on the brakes!
Alas, I threw those espresso beans in my cart and prepared to make this muesli. I struggled to keep them around long enough and reserve them for this muesli! I think I gained ten pounds from the entire container.
This recipe can be made with three items: oats, espresso beans, and shredded coconut. However, feel free to add extra ingredients like sunflower seeds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, or whatever pleases you. I added walnuts.
What you'll need:
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
- handful of dark chocolate-covered espresso beans
- 1/8 cup shredded coconut
How to make it:
- Combine all ingredients.
- Serve with milk of choice or yogurt.
