Mick's Grain Free Brekky - My Fave Ever!

So those of you with a Thermomix will recognise this recipe as CADA (coconut, apple, dates, almonds) but this is my hubby's take on it to make it just the way I like it!  I came home from my pilates class this morning and this is what he made for me for brekky - the flavours of CADA with just the 4 ingredients are pretty amazing - but the addition of our little tweaks to the recipe takes it to a whole new level!  Best of all, it takes barely any time to prepare this deliciously nutritious brekky!  To make more serves, just increase the ingredients to however many serves you would like to make.

Ingredients (serves 1):
- 1/2 apple or pear, quartered
- 2 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup raw almonds (or other nuts)
- 1/4 cup organic desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon

To serve - milk (I used almond milk), fresh fruit (cherries, strawberries and blueberries in mine)

Pulse all ingredients in food processor or Thermomix until finely chopped and serve with milk and topped with fruit!


  1. This looks delicious. Love the addition of cacao to the dish

  2. Just made this for my 4 year old. He loves it - tastes like 'milo' apparently. Even my 9 month old loves it. Grabbed some out of the bowl while I was trying to take it to the table. Thanks for providing me with another breakfast option.
