Homemade Granola

If you’re after a light, delicious brekkie, it’s hard to go past a bowl of granola. Chock full of nuts and seeds, granola delivers a protein-packed start to the day (with added texture and healthy sweetness to boot). Packaged varieties can put a strain on the hip pocket, but luckily you can whip up your own crunchy goodness using some pantry staples – in just a few quick steps.


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups roughly chopped nuts, seeds and dried fruit
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes (optional)
  • 2 tbsp honey, warmed
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Spread mixture evenly onto a baking tray. Bake for around 25 minutes (turning once), or until granola is golden and crunchy. Cool and store in an airtight container. Serve with fresh fruit and Greek yoghurt.

Easy Frittata

This simple, affordable meal will make busy weeknight dinners a breeze, and leave you with plenty of leftovers for the next day’s lunch. All you need are eggs, cheese and a splash of milk. Plus, this is the perfect dish for using up any vegies that are nearing their use-by date – onion, capsicum, zucchini, sweet potato, asparagus and tomato all work well. Simply chop them up and add them to the pan. Dense vegetables (such as potato) might require some pre-cooking. The base ingredients are high in protein, which makes frittata a great choice for vegetarians. But if you’re the kind of person who can eat bacon for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you can always sauté it with your vegetables prior to cooking.


  • 6-8 eggs
  • A splash of milk or cream
  • 1-2 cups chopped vegetables
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 175 C. Whisk together the eggs, milk or cream and cheese (to taste). Season with salt and pepper and set aside. Add butter or olive oil to a heavy skillet pan and sauté vegetables for five minutes. Reduce heat to low and pour the egg mixture over the sautéed vegies. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture starts to puff and pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat and finish in the ocean for another 10 minutes.

Bircher Bliss

Spring calls for lighter breakfasts and plenty of fresh fruit. Give yourself the best chance of enjoying the morning sun by preparing this delicious, healthy bircher muesli the night before. Fibre-rich oats will help you feel full until lunchtime, while chia seeds, nuts and pepitas provide a good source of protein and dietary vitamins.

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 apples, coarsely grated
  • ½ cup fresh apple or orange juice
  • 1 cup natural yoghurt (plus extra to serve)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup flaked almonds
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup pepitas
  • Honey & fresh berries, to serve

Mix the rolled oats, juice, ½ cup of yoghurt, chia seeds and cinnamon in a large bowl. Cover and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add the nuts and seeds, along with the remaining yoghurt, and mix thoroughly. Top with fresh berries (or other fruit) and drizzle with honey.
