  • 500 g muesli base* (5 cups)
  • 2 clementines zest
  • 50 g pecans roughly chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 50 g pistachios roughly chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 50 g dried cranberries (1/2 cup)
  • 50 g dried cherries (1/3 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

Quick cranberry compote

  • 100 g fresh cranberries (1 cup)
  • 50 g light brown sugar (1/4 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons clementine juice


  • Preheat oven to about 120°C.
  • Spread the muesli base mix out on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle over the clementine zest and use your fingers to distribute it throughout the muesli. Place the tray into the warmed oven for 5 minutes or so, turning halfway through, until the zest has dried out.
  • Mix with the remaining ingredients and leave to cool. Store in a large jar or container.

For the cranberry compote

  • Place all ingredients into a small saucepan and place over a medium heat. Simmer until the cranberries have burst and the compote has reduced and thickened a little. This should take around 5-10 minutes.


*The muesli base mix that I use contains oats, wheat, barley, brown rice and spelt flakes and flaxseed. You could simply use oats as a base or get creative mixing up your own. Health food shops tend to sell the above either by themselves or in a variety of mixes.
