We’re the type of people who want to sleep in until the last possible minute on any given morning, so quick and healthy breakfasts have become somewhat of our forte. That doesn’t mean we’re not always on the hunt for new options. Over the years we’ve met quite a few people who have admitted to us that they have perfected the art of whipping up a quick and healthy breakfast before running out the door. We figured, why not turn to one of them for a recipe or two? Enter Penny Lane (remember her from her chic vacation workout?), a model who is constantly on the go between castings and shoots in international cities. She makes a muesli recipe that is to-die-for, and we had to get in the site for you. It’ll make your Monday morning a breeze. 

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup mixed nuts (including macadamias, hazelnuts, cashews, pecans—whatever you please)
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
2 cups coconut flakes
1 pinch Himalayan salt
1/4 cup bee pollen
2 tablespoons maple syrup (can substitute for Lakanto syrup)
1 egg
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. “Mix all of the dry ingredients together, with the exception of the bee pollen.”

2. “In a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients together until well combined.”

3. “Heat a pan on medium heat. Add only the dry mix to the pan, cooking until lightly toasted, with the wonderful nutty aromas filling your kitchen.”

4. “Remove the pan from the heat and return the mix back into it’s original bowl, allowing it to cool.”

5. “Add the bee pollen to the now toasted dry mix.”

6. “Once cool, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir together and watch the bee pollen work it’s magical powers, turning your mixture into a golden, glossy treat.”

7. “Heat the pan up once more, this time on medium to high heat. Pour everything into the hot pan, watching your granola transform into little golden clusters. I like to cook this until I see the edges get slightly darker.”

8. “Take everything off the heat and allow it to cool. As it cools the clusters will harden.”

9. “Add to greek yogurt or almond milk, and enjoy! You can also enjoy as a snack on the go.”
