    owly, having visited the USA, I'm not surprised that it's hard to find unsweetened. Anything in a package in the USA has corn syrup. It seems like it's compulsory for food processors.

    about 1/4 cup dried unsweetened coconut
    same volume of coconut milk, mixed and allow to stand until it thickens to oatmeal consistency.

    Topped with 1/2 avacado and diced strawberries.

    Yum!!!!
    Sounds delicious! I like avocado on EVERYTHING so I'll be trying this one

    I do what I call "Paleonola" when I can't stomach another egg for breakfast: 1/4 cup chopped nuts (mostly raw macadamias with some almond and hazelnut for fun), coconut chips (Nutiva brand, organic, unsweetened, raw), a sprinkle of dried fruit (raisins and cranberries are faves) with milk of choice. Best of all, doesn't get soggy! I tested it recently to see if it would sustain me and I got to 2pm without getting hungry, so the insulin kick didn't seem to bother me. But definitely a sometime treat.

    Here is another great breakfast ceral or topping for yogart

    Grain-Free Granola Theme & Variations.

    Core Ingredients:

    1kg raw almonds (soaked if possible)
    500g raw walnuts (same)
    150g coconut flakes or grated coconut
    3 egg whites
    Optional - 2T sweetener (either maple syrup, or xylitol & a pinch of stevia)
    tsp almond extract or vanilla

    Method:

    1. Preheat oven to moderate, and line metal trays with foil or paper. I have Xtrema ceramic bakeware, so I use them as is - nothing sticks too firmly, and there's no liner waste.

    2. Using about a cup of nuts at a time, depending on blender size, process nuts in a deep or sealed bowl until chunks are at the desired size. You can also chop the nuts by hand if you're keen for a long, steady workout.

    3. Place prepared nuts in a large bowl, and add coconut.

    4. In a small, dry bowl, beat egg whites until smooth, glossy peaks form. Add sweetener, and stir thoroughly.

    5. Add egg mixture to nuts & coconut, and stir thoroughly until no egg foam is visible and everything has been coated. If you feel the egg didn't stretch far enough, whip up another white and add that to your bowl.

    6. Spoon nut mixture onto bakeware, keeping the layers no thicker than an inch high.


    7. Bake in oven for around 10 minutes, or until the top layer starts to become golden.

    8. Remove from oven and stir mixture to bring uncooked nuts to the surface and to break apart any lumps. Replace in oven and bake for another 10 or so minutes, watching for burning. You may need to repeat this step if your batch is cooking unevenly (if you're oven is anything like mine, you'll be in this situation for an extra 20 minutes or so of stirring and replacing).


    9. When cooked to your liking, remove from oven and allow to cool thoroughly before storing in an air-tight container. Don't worry if your cereal pouring container is adulterated with gratuitous corn flake imagery:


    Serve with berries & cream (or coconut cream) for best results, but is also good with straight raw milk, or so I'm told. Personally, I could eat it like trail mix, by itself, so long as there's no sweetener added to the batch!

    (NB: If the SAD's portion distortion has you thinking that a normal serve of such foods is upwards of two cups, I'd like to point out that just half a cup of Nola will satisfy you, especially if served with cream. The beau, being a tall boy, tends towards a full cup serving, with his milk. Eat slowly, enjoy, and listen to your leptin receptors.)


    Variations

    Sunny Nola - After baking, add dried fruit such as sultanas, chopped apricot, goji berries, and even dried apple slices. Good for those with a sweet tooth or those who use carbs after a workout.

    Seedy Nola - add sunflower or pumpkin seeds to the chopped nuts before adding the egg whites.

    Norridge (Nola Porridge) - after baking, put batch through the food processor to create a semi-fine meal. Fantastic served with warmed milk, cream or coconut cream, or just add hot water and cooked fruit.

    PumpkiNola - warm and add canned or previously roasted and pureed pumpkin to your bowlful of Nola, and stir thoroughly. Top with cream, and enjoy a hearty treat!

    A lovely, breakfast for those mornings where you just can't face eggs and bacon. I clearly don't understand your mind-set, but I hear there are such people out there...

    ***another good one I really like is half and apple diced and a TBLS of almond butter micro tell apples are soft then mix it up..

    Thank you for both of these! I am NOT an egg and bacon person so these will be awesome things for me to try.

    I tried this recipe today. The only way it was edible was with the strawberries. I thought I would really like it, but ... not so much, unfortunately

    I had it for breakfast and enjoyed it, but I only had frozen strawberries, so I heated the whole thing up in my microwave. Yum!

    If your food is fast, maybe you should fast.
