1/2 TBSP chia seeds
1/2 cup almond milk (or any dairy-free milk)
1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or ground cinnamon)
dash of organic vanilla extract
pinch of himalayan salt
1 tsp honey
Combine coconut flakes, walnuts, flaxseed meal, almond flour, chia seeds, himalayan salt, and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl and mix.
Heat almond milk until bubbling. Stir in the dry ingredients and add a dash of vanilla extract and honey. This recipe makes one serving.
Add a few blueberries, raspberries or strawberries and top with 1 TBSP of no-sugar added cashew or almond butter.
