    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup flax seed
    • 2 -3 cups water
    • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (heaping)
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/4 teaspoon stevia (you can use the sweetener of your choice to taste)
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
    • fruit, of your choice (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Grind the flax seeds, 1/4 cup at a time, in a coffee grinder until very fine.
    2. 2
      In a small, preferably non-stick, saucepan, place the ground flax and all other ingredients, except the nuts and fruit.
    3. 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. 4
      Spoon into small bowls; top with nuts and fruit.

      I got this all mixed up in the pan to discover that my stove was broken. I managed by putting in steaming hot water instead of cooking it, and it still turned out pretty good. I used sugar instead of stevia and needed a fair bit to get it to be sweet enough for my tastes, but still this is pretty good. (Especially considering my lack -of-stove!)
