*Adapted from Melissa's Quick High-Fiber Muesli recipe in Gluten Free Throughout the Year by Melissa Diane Smith. Recipe reprinted from the Going Against the Grain Group, 2012.
6 Tbs. Perky's Crunchy Flax Cereal
¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk, divided
4 Tbs. chopped pecans
2 Tbs. raw pumpkin seeds
½ medium organic apple, chopped
¼-½ tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. organic raisins (optional)
2 tsp. unsweetened dried shredded coconut
- Pour cereal into small saucepan. Add ½ cup coconut milk, pecans, and pumpkin seeds. Stir until ingredients are well mixed and cereal is no longer dry. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, 5-6 minutes, until cereal has softened and mixture is hot and has stiff muesli texture.
- Remove from heat, and stir in remaining coconut milk, apple, cinnamon, and raisins, if using. Spoon into two bowls, top with shredded coconut, and serve.
