This Chia, Almond & Apple Bircher With Activated Cinnamon Walnuts recipe is a perfect way to kickstart your day and it’s ideal for vegans.
Make time 15 minutes
Soak time 30 minutes
20 g (¾ oz/¼ cup) chia seeds
435 ml (15¼ fl oz/1¾ cups) almond milk (see page 30)
2 apples or pears
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp sultanas (golden raisins)
1 tsp cinnamon
25 g (1 oz/¼ cup) of caramelised walnuts
1 First mix the chia seeds and almond milk in a bowl – mix well for a few minutes as the chia starts to absorb the milk to make sure there are no clumps. Leave for ½ an hour until the chia seeds have fully absorbed all the almond milk.
2 Grate the apples or pears and mix with some of the lemon juice to prevent it from browning.
3 Mix the sultanas, cinnamon and grated apple/pear with the chia seeds.
4 Place into bowls and sprinkle with caramelised walnuts and extra cinnamon.
