Apple Cinnamon Chia

There’s something rather comforting about cooked apples, maybe it reminds me of winter puddings when I was growing up, or maybe it’s just the soft, sweetness that’s easy to eat.

My favourite apple at the moment is the Mahana, it has a juicy, sweet flavour that’s not too sweet or sour. It looks like the apple that the witch gave Snow White.


  • 2 apples, peeled and diced
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted and diced
  • cinnamon stick
  • water to cover
  • 1/3 cup Chia seeds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • dash of vanilla essence
  • dash of Matakana Superfoods Coconut nectar
  • Coconut yoghurt and granola to top


The night before: In a saucepan put diced apples and dates. Cover with water. Add cinnamon stick or a dash of powdered cinnamon. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 – 3 minutes until apples soften. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

In a container combine chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla essence and coconut nectar. Stir to mix thoroughly, cover and put in fridge.

Put apple and date mixture into a container, cover and put in fridge.

In the morning: in a bowl or glass stack chia mixture with apple sauce, then coconut yoghurt and granola.

Enjoy! xo
