Recipe Directions

  • 1. Shred your apple using a hand shredder. (If making only one or two bowls, I use a mandoline slicer with the shredder attachment. If making this for many people, probably easiest to shred in a food processor.)
  • 2. Place shredded apple in bowl, and top with remaining ingredients.
  • 3. Top with the cashew milk (best) or alternatively use water.
  • 4. Stir vigourously. Within a couple of minutes the chia seeds and shredded coconut will absorb the liquid and you will have a delicious, ready to eat raw breakfast cereal.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This recipe is very similar to my raw breakfast cereal recipe; however, there are a couple of key differences - especially the addition of the coconut and the shredding of the apple.

In fact, it is the shredded apple that makes up the recipe - and gives it a stellar texture!

This recipe is for one person.

Hello Rawtarian! Thank you for this recipe. I am not vegan but I am trying to incorporate more raw food into my diet. I had the modified version of this recipe this morning and it was delish! I have posted the recipe below:

1 shredded apple; 1 tablespoon flax seeds; 1 tablespoon raisins; I tablespoon pumpkin seeds; 1 tablespoon almonds; Sprinkle of cinnamon & 1/3 cup soy milk (This is all I had on hand :-( )

This will become a staple as it it delicious and quick to make. I will try again with homemade almond milk.

Thanks again for the recipe,

Tara

Hi Tara, those substitutions sound great!

I love it too, and, as you mentioned, you can switch it up a bit depending on what you have on hand - this keeps it interesting too!

Yum! I replaced the Cashew milk with Almond milk, the buckwheat groats with buckwheat flakes (couldn't find the groats!) and added some cranberries... delicious! Thanks

I had this for a snack last night (with almond milk) & again for breakfast this morning (with water & added 1 tbsp of ground flax seed for my daily dose of Omega 3). This is SO GOOD. After I got settled at work, I emailed the recipe to my husband, my mom, my mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law & about 6 people at work. :) It's light & crunchy & satisfying & just down-right yummy. Thanks for the great recipe! I can't wait to try it with dried cranberries & dried blueberries and...

Hi Summer! You are so cute with your emailing lol. Glad you liked! It's a really handy recipe, and I like to switch it up a bit every time so that it doesn't get boring. I had it this morning myself!

Could I substitute the almond milk with skim milk instead, would that affect the recipe at all? :)

Amazing site, your recipes are absolutely brilliant, and completely fuss-free to boot!

Hi Anu, dairy milk isn't raw, but really you could use any time of "milk" on top - just like any breakfast cereal the choice of milk is yours and it won't really affect the recipe much. good question

Yummy! I used Steel Cut Oats since that's what I had. No coconut on hand, so substituted one ring of pineapple for two servings. Hubby liked it, too! This will be made again and again. Thanks so much!

Can I use almond milk instead of cashew milk? I know I can, but is it as good and does the almond milk soak up the chia seeds as well?

This is my first trial with chia seeds. Been wanting to make it since I first saw your video about it. This is Mucho D-licsh and I even used water; should be amazing with nut mylk! So much tastier, way more nutritious and kinder on the tummy than processed cereals. Its that holiday time of year so I made mine with shredded pear and dried cranberries (which weren't raw but one of these days I will dry my own). I honestly can't taste the cranberries but the pear is probably a good way to change it up every once in a while. You had mentioned some emotional discomfort with sipping on breakfast smoothies this time of year - I don't blame you. Maybe you could have some of your raw breakfast bowl with heated (but no hotter than 105) mylk.

Hi Lisa! The pear/cran combo sounds delightful. A nice way to switch it up! I agree, it is even better with almond milk, but it definitely works with water - I have it with water 50% of the time.  :) Glad you are on the chia train! Next stop, chia puddings!!
