My hubby is a HUGE fan of cereal, it was one of the hardest things for him to give up. He has been eating mixed nuts with raisins and almond milk for years now, and it just feels–wrong! Yeah, so this is basically the same thing, but it seems better. :)
Also, I really love having cereal-like foods for the kids because they love the variety! And because it has a high caloric density, I know it will keep them fueled all morning.
This is fast, sweet, savory, nutty, crunchy and comforting. It’s like a muesli, or a granola, and it was absolutely divine smothered in creamy, coconutty, milky goodness.
Here is what I did–no measuring!
one-half apple cored and roughly diced
handful of sliced almonds
handful of pitted, chopped dates
handful of unsweetened coconut
generous dose of cinnamon; 1 pinch of salt
Pulse in the food processor to desired consistency–smaller is better for the little ones! Serve with almond milk, or creamy coconut milk. (Taste of Thai brand, preferably!)
