raw vegan apple-nut porridge

Apple Nut Porridge

It’s Sunday morning and I’m hungry and totally unprepared for breakfast. Eeek! So, for the first time since it arrived in my mailbox two weeks ago, I opened Ani’s Raw Food Essentials to find some inspiration. Her Raw Food Kitchen was my first ever raw recipe book so I have a bit of a soft spot for her and she has a lot of easy recipes. Success! On page 64 I found her Apple-Nut Porridge… I just made a small modification to remove the dreaded agave… a good rule of thumb: use dates instead!! 

This required absolutely no prep and uses fairly common ingredients for a raw foodie. Simple, fresh and filling = just what I needed! Her recipe makes enough for 4 people but what I have written out below is a good size for one…

Ingredients (single serve)

  • Small handful of your favorite nuts – I used walnuts as I’m having an outrageous love affair with them at the moment
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 1 tbls flaxseed meal
  • 2 dates – soaked overnight to soften (as required; fresh medjools are so soft they blend well anyway and are my fav.)
  • Goji berries


I didn’t think my small batch would really fit in a food processor so I threw everything except the goji berries in my Blendtec and pulsed it until it was chunky (this required me loosening it up between pulses).  I put it in a bowl, sprinkled some goji berries on top and voilá! Breakfast.

Ani also suggests adding chopped dried figs and adding your favorite nut mylk – I didn’t have figs and thought mylk was unnecessary (and was too lazy to make any!)
