  • 12 cup flax seed
  • 2 -3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (heaping)
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 14 teaspoon stevia (you can use the sweetener of your choice to taste)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 14 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
  • fruit, of your choice (optional)


  1. Grind the flax seeds, 1/4 cup at a time, in a coffee grinder until very fine.
  2. In a small, preferably non-stick, saucepan, place the ground flax and all other ingredients, except the nuts and fruit.
  3. Simmer on low heat until hot and bubbling, stirring frequently. Add more water until it's the consistency that's most pleasing to you; I like it on the thin side.
  4. Spoon into small bowls; top with nuts and fruit.
