Cocoa Flakes, Peanut Butter Milk and Banana

By 24/05/2017July 14th, 20189 Comments

Do you find that you really properly enjoyed food more when you were a child ? I remember humming while I ate and getting into the detail of what I was eating, making each bite the perfect bite or saving the best bits for last. You know what I’m saying? 

I find as adults we tend to be more disconnected from the joy we have around eating and nourishing ourselves. But, and this might sound crazy town, you put a bowl of cereal in front of me and I’m a child again.

I loved cereal as a kid. From Cherrios to Golden Grahams and everything in between ( like, Lucky Charms ! 🙂 ) Obviously, I don’t eat these anymore and haven’t for over 20 years, but my desire for that bowl of yum yum has not gone away, and that’s what brings me to this weeks recipe.

Cocoa Flakes

400g ( 4 cups ) coconut flakes
100g ( ½ cup ) coconut sugar
35g ( ¼ cup ) cacao powder
Pinch sea salt
½ tbsp coconut flour ( optional for a more clustery cereal )


  • Soak the coconut flakes in enough water to cover for 1 hour.
  • Strain the water off and discard or save for a smoothie 🙂
  • Transfer the flakes to a bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
  • Mix well to combine with your hands. Squish the mixture to be sure all the coconut is equally covered.
  • Transfer the mixture to a solid teflex sheet and dehydrate for 10 hours at 115f and then flip, if needed, and continue drying an additional 5 hours or until crisp.
  • Once cool, store in an airtight container for several months.

Peanut Butter Milk

35g ( ¼ cup ) peanut butter ( I used Pip and Nut )
350ml ( 1 ½ cups ) water
1 tbsp coconut sugar ( optional )
Handful of ice ( optional for cold milk if using right away )


  • Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
  • Taste and adjust if needed.
  • Store milk in the fridge so it’s cold when you want to use it or use ice to make it cold if using right away.
