When I'm running short on time, I sometimes need a little help in the kitchen. In today's special post, I'm bringing you not one, but THREE easy, peasy recipes made with Dorset Cereal – everything from lunch to snack time and dessert! These recipes are wholesome, healthy and made just a little bit better with some extra fibre, real dried fruit and crunchy, filling nuts. Keep scrolling to find recipes for a delicious Arugula and Sweet Potato Salad, along with easy Coconut and Tahini Energy Bites, and some tasty Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies!
Dorset Cereals is a brand that originates from the UK and has been selling delicious muesli cereals filled to the brim with fruit, nuts, seeds and high fibre oat flakes – the brand is now launching into the Canadian market and making quite an impact.
Dorset has a great Pinterest giveaway going on right now where you can win a gift basket filled with all kinds of Dorset goodies and a gift card to Scandinave Spa, valid at their Whistler, Vancouver, Mount Tremblant, Quebec & Blue Mountain, Ontario locations. To enter, all you have to do is create your own unique recipe using any Dorset product (like yours truly), follow the steps provided at makeitwithdorset.com and Dorset will choose the best recipe as the winner!
Now that you know a bit about the brand and the giveaway, check out three of the recipes I made with Dorset to get your creative juices flowing!
Arugula and Sweet Potato Salad – This delicious, easy to throw together salad is made with arugula, beet green sprouts, feta cheese, red onions, chicken, roasted sweet potato and finished off with Dorset's high fibre muesli.
Coconut and Tahini Energy Bites – These coconut tahini energy bites are so tasty and the perfect afternoon pick me up, made with Dorset's new honey granola and bit of unsweetened coconut and tahini.
The shredded coconut and honey add a bit of extra sweetness, and I absolutely love the added sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds and walnuts that add a rough and crunchy texture to the energy bites!
Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies – These cookies are the perfect hybrid between chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin. I even used spelt flour to make these cookies high-fibre and whole wheat alongside the super high fibre muesli!
Which one of these recipes will you be trying? Let me know on Twitter, or tag me on Instagram! There are so many great ways to get creative and add a little extra bit of fibre to your daily meals, and Dorset makes it super easy.
