Ingredients

Chia Pudding

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or water you can also use coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup raw cashews soaked in water overnight and drained*
  • 6 dates pitted
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • fresh fruit for topping

Grain Free Granola

Instructions

Chia Pudding

  • In a small bowl, combine the chia seeds and water (or milk); set aside until the mixture forms a gel, about 20 minutes.
  • Combine the cashews, dates, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and half of the chia gel in a high-speed blender. Puree until smooth. Transfer the pureed mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the remaining chia gel.
  • Serve immediately or keep stored in the fridge until ready to eat. Top with granola (recipe below) and fresh berries.

Grain Free Granola

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the almonds, coconut, pecans, Brazil nuts (or cashews), sunflower seeds, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, honey, water, and almond extract. Add the wet ingredients to the nut mixture and toss to coat.
  • Spread the granola on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring halfway through. Remove the granola from the oven and stir in the dried apricots and cherries (or cranberries).
  • Set aside to cool for 15 minutes before serving. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.

Notes

*I didn't have time to soak my cashews overnight, so I just used roasted, salted cashews and that worked great!! *This recipe has been reprinted with permission from [Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body | http://www.amazon.com/Eating-Clean-21-Day-Detox-Inflammation/dp/0544546466/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1460169889&sr=8-1&keywords=Eating+Clean%3A+The+21-Day+Plan+to+Detox%2C+Fight+Inflammation%2C+and+Reset+Your+Body] by Amie Valpone.
