  • 2 tbsp chopped almonds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp white chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp goji berries
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup instant oats
  • 1 cup milk of choice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 mandarins peeled and segmented


  • Place the almonds, pumpkin seeds and pepitas in a frying pan over medium heat and toast for about 3 minutes. Make sure to shake the pan regularly until the mixture is lightly toasted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add the white chia seeds and goji berries.
  • In a small saucepan warm the maple syrup, almond butter, coconut oil and ¼ cup of water over low heat and stir until smooth and everything is combined. Move to a small bowl to cool
  • Give the saucepan a quick rinse and place the instant oats into the saucepan. Add the milk and water and heat over medium heat for about 2-5 minutes (this will depend on the oats), or until the oat mixture thickens.
  • Divide the oats between bowls. Top with mandarin slices, the nut mixture and a drizzle of the almond butter mix. Serve.


If the oat mixture is too thick add more milk until it reaches your desired consistency.
