Grain-Free Bulk Bin Breakfast

by | Jun 14, 2016 | Column 1, Recipes | 0 comments

I love apples and cinnamon and I used these two ingredients as the base for a yummy, filling breakfast that you can make quickly and that will keep you satisfied for hours. I’m not precise with recipes; I like to use them more as suggestions for creating something that sounds appealing to me. So, use my Bulk Bin Breakfast as a guide for creating something delicious that you will love.

  • 1 organic apple, chopped
  • 2-3 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-2 teaspoons raw honey (optional)

Melt the coconut oil and honey in a saucepan over med low heat. Add the chopped apple and cinnamon and toss to coat (you’re not cooking that apple; just melt the coconut oil).

Now comes the fun part. Add anything else that looks good to you. I love gathering items from the bulk bins at my grocery store. Some suggestions are:

  • Chopped walnuts
  • Raw coconut flakes
  • Heart of hemp seeds
  • Chopped dates
  • Chia seeds (soak 1 T of seeds in about ¼ c of almond milk for at least 5 min)
  • Salted sunflower seeds
  • Raw pumpkin seeds
  • Ground flax seeds
  • Chopped prunes

You can eat this all on it’s own. Or, you can add a scoop of this cinnamon/fruit/nut/seed mixture to your morning oatmeal or cooked buckwheat cereal. It can also be made in large batches and refrigerated. I sometimes even find myself eating it as a dessert!
