Friday Food: Raw Apple-Cinnamon & Chia Breakfast Bowl

A tasty change up to everyday breakfast that does a good job of getting you going but not filling you up with a lot of extra 'stuff' that you're not looking for when you start your day off.  Give it a try coming up.

  • 3 honey crisp apples, peeled and cored, divided
  • 4-5 medjoll dates, pitted
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp chia seed
  • raw walnuts
  • raisins
  • dried cranberries
  • hemp seeds

The Game Plan:
  1. Finely dice one of the honey crisp apples and add to an airtight container
  2. Take two of the honey crisp apples and cute hem into large pieces.  Add the apple pieces to a food processor along with the dates, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Pulse the mixture several times and then let it process for 2-3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape the mixture down the sides.  Pour the apple-date mixture into the container with the diced apple and stir in the chia seed.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  4. Divide the apple mixture between two bowl and top with raw walnuts, raisins, cranberries, and hemp seeds.
  5. Serve and enjoy.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers.
