Serves or Makes: 2-4 with leftover granola and chia jam

Recipe Card


  • 2 cups raw nuts and seeds of choice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup large flake coconut, (leave out if you can’t find it)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen rasperries
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 14 oz can light coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

For the Granola


  • Step 1

    Coarsely chop nuts and seeds. If using activated nuts and seeds you do not need to heat them, as they are already crispy. If you are using raw nuts and seeds, add them to a pan or pot and stir over low heat until they’re warmed through and a bit toasty, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Add coconut, cinnamon, salt and drizzle with maple syrup and melted coconut oil. Stir to coat.

  • Step 3

    Stir over low heat until coconut is toasted! Let granola cool and enjoyyy!! Store any leftovers in a well sealed glass jar.

For the Raspberry Chia Jam

  • Step 1

    Add raspberries (or other fruit), 2 Tbs maple syrup if using and 1 Tbs chia seeds to a small pot, mash raspberries with back of spoon, bring to a boil, then simmer for 10-15min until thickened.

  • Step 2

    Stir in vanilla and then pour into a jar! Once cool, store in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze in a cube tray and thaw cubes when you want to eat it!

For the Golden Chia Pudding

  • Step 1

    Whisk together the chia pudding ingredients (light coconut milk, 1/4 cup + 1 Tbs chia seeds, 1 tsp turmeric, and 2 Tbs maple syrup), cover, and put in the fridge overnight, or for at least 3 hours.

  • Step 2

    Make sure to whisk well in the morning, using the back of a spoon to break up the chia and/or turmeric chunks! I don't like it too thick, so if it's too runny for you, add more chia in the morning and let it rest for a couple minutes in order for it to thicken up.
