    This looks great. I just made muesli for the first time last week and loved it. My hubby wasn’t so much into it, but I think the addition of cocoa and chocolate will change his mind. I kind of like it cold. I know the oats won’t be cooked but with fruits and nuts, it’s really good. I just liked you on facebook, can’t wait to see more recipes!

    I clicked on the twitter link to see what you came up with not putting two and two together as I didn’t remember the recipe and surprise surprise! I was delighted to find out the recipe was from Maria’s book and thanks for the lovely mention, you are very kind! I know the right person won when I see the colorful bookmarks peeping through. You are right you can substitute gluten free grains I do it all the time due to different allergy and dietary restriction!

    You KNOW you’ve got my attention when you say chocolate and I LOVE the nibs in there! Just googling Montmorency Cherries because now I want to get them for myself! Gorgeous pictures E, and I love your colorful tabs in the book!

    Yummy, yummy, yummy. That’s exactly how the idea of chocolate in a healthy breakfast sounds to me 😉

    Couple of thoughts… I forget now what the coating was, but I would swear that Gretchen of Kumquat told me that chopped dates had an ingredient listed in that white coating that was a gluten-containing ingredient. Maybe good that you used cherries, rather than the pre-chopped dates.

    Also, where did you get your cacoa nibs (and if you say Trader Joe’s, I may tear up… the part of the world that we now call home is TJ-less. #Sniff #Sigh)

    Oh man, lucky you! I was hoping to win that book when Shulie had the contest, lol. Well I’m glad you’re doing one too. Maybe I’ll win this one, the book looks really interesting.

    I vote Polenta (ah too late but that sounded great to me), though this has to be good too. I will check out the blog you mentioned (love a first hand tip).

    Hello to EA for creating such an inspiring post of my dark chocolate muesli.

    The enthusiasm and joy you bring to preparing recipes from my new cookbook “Ancient Grains for Modern Meals” is heart-warming, a real gift for the author. Thank you!

    What a beautiful book, so full of happiness!!! Love this recipe, especially because my husband would totally eat this! He is not a fan of oatmeal, or other grains for breakfast. BUT if you add peanut butter, or chocolate he is so interested! I will be reading your blog anyways, because I adore your recipes you share, but look forward to being a part of the contest too!

      Thanks so much for your comment Jen! I got my cocoa nibs on a trip to costa Rica last summer, but if you are near a store such as Whole Foods, I’m sure you could find them there. Hope you make the muesli- it’s delicious!

    Hey EA – I just got a copy of Ancient Grains and my cookbook looks like yours with sticky notes on several pages!! I made the Orange Polentina this morning and it was absolutely heavenly – I loved the combo of orange zest, grits, mascarpone and tarragon (I can honestly say I’ve never eaten tarragon for breakfast :) Can you direct me to the list of recipes that Maria and her publisher have approved to be reprinted by bloggers? Happy new year!
