Ingredients
  • 150g (11/2 cups) rolled (porridge) oats
  • 90g (¾ cup) walnut halves
  • 35g (½ cup) shredded coconut
  • 45g (¼ cup) chia seeds (white or black)

Instructions
  1. Place the oats, walnuts, coconut, chia seeds, cinnamon, cocoa and vanilla in a food processor and process until all the ingredients are finely chopped.
