Breakfast Pudding (Dairy, Gluten and Refined Sugar Free)

Breakfast is the meal where you should eat the most calories.  Eating your biggest meal in the morning will allow your body to stay mentally and physically stable for the remainder of the day.  I love this breakfast "pudding" as it gives lots of energy and protein.  I generally just combine any seeds and nuts I have around and then add some milk.  You could soak the nuts and seeds for 2-4 hours ahead of time if you don't want as much crunch.

Ingredients (serves 1-2 people)
  • 1/4 sunflower seeds
  • 2 teaspoons raw cocoa 
  • 1/4 cup coconut
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or other natural sweeteners
  • 1/3 cup nuts (I usually use almonds or cashews)
  • 1/2 cup non dairy milk (adjust depending in desired consistency)
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia or flax seeds
  • 1/2 banana
  1. Grind sunflower seeds, coconut and nuts in a food processor or bean grinder.
  2. In a medium size bowl combine all ingredients.  If using chia or flax seeds let it sit for 5-10 minutes to allow them to soak up the liquid.


  1. How long would that keep? I'm about to have an operation (tonsillectomy) and would like to prepare food beforehand....

  2. I am not sure, that is a good question. I actually don't know. I usually just make enough for the current meal and if there are left overs I would just have them the next day. Sorry I don't really know.

  3. Amazing, I am a vegan, I have allergies to gluten and sugar, and its websites like this that take all worries away for people like us, thank you!

    1. Thank you so much I hope you find enough recipes you can use!
