This super-healthy, crazy-delicious breakfast sundae comes from Fran Costigan, “the queen of vegan desserts.” Fran is an internationally recognized culinary instructor and author, and she’s all about making and eating delicious, healthy, organic, and minimally processed food. Naturally, she’s also a longtime Theo chocolate devotee.
Fran created this modern version of muesli just for us. Traditionally, muesli is a mixture of uncooked rolled oats, fruit, seeds, and nuts. Invented by a Swiss physician for his patients, it’s packed with iron, calcium, zinc, and other important nutrients. Nondairy milk keeps this recipe vegan, and it’s also gluten-free if you use certified gluten-free oats.
The pudding is rich and creamy but light in texture, and far more interesting than straight chia puddings. Fran also suggests using chocolate-flavored nondairy milk for a Sunday brunch–worthy extra-chocolaty breakfast pudding. This recipe scales up beautifully, so make enough to last a few days.
