Pan Roasted Mocha Granola Musli Monster

26 Jul

How did I come up with this recipe, you ask?

I had a craving for some toasted oats.

I didn’t have a lot of time.

I wanted something healthy.

I saw this recipe and this recipe and decided to combine them to create one awesome healthy recipe!

I didn’t have exact measurements, so you will have to bear with me.




Coco powder

Instant coffee

Flax Seed Meal (optional)


Heat a 15 inch pan on medium high heat. Sprinkle a layer of old-fashion oats until it covers the pan. While it’s roasting, chop up a handful of walnuts. Add a sprinkling of coco powder, instant coffee, and flax seed meal. Stir to combine, then stir every 2-3 minutes until oats are browned, about 10-15 minutes. Add in walnuts and stir until you smell the nuttiness, about another 3-4 minutes.


Now how easy was that?

If you want it to be more clumpy, granola style, you can add a sprinkle of brown sugar and a couple drizzles of olive oil. The way I made it is more like a cereal, but that’s what I wanted. You can put it over milk or greek yogurt, but I ate mine with milk as mine was expiring soon. I even drank all of the milk! Mom, aren’t you surprised / proud of me?

I ate mine with skim milk and a lot of black berries. But I forgot to take pictures of that so you will have to stare at the picture of the granola musli monster pre milk+berries. My apologies.

    Do you have it on medium-high heat the entire time? Or change to med/low?
