Cinnamon Apple Breakfast Brown Rice with Raisins and Almonds

Like I have mentioned before, I get so sick of oatmeal. Even though I recently discovered an awesome and flavorful brand, I still get bored with it. I figured I would try and brew up some brown rice in my crock pot with a random apple I had lying around. It came together to form a super soft, fluffy satisfying breakfast dish. You can add anything else you’d like, too. I plan on adding some pecans and bananas next time. This brown rice is super nutritious, and it keeps you completely full until lunch time rolls around. I apologize for forgetting to take a picture, so you’ll just have to look at my cat’s instead :



Ingredients :



  • 3/4 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1 can coconut milk, light or regular
  • 1 cup unsweetened non dairy milk, I prefer almond
  • 1 apple of choice, peeled and cubed
  • between 1/4 to 1/2  cup water – depends on how thick you want it
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup almonds, chopped and/or  toasted
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup



To Make : 


Mix together rice, coconut milk, non-dairy milk, apple, water and spices in a crock pot. Let cook on low setting for 4 hours. It’s vital that you time this, or else your rice will burn badly. You also need to make sure and stir it about once an hour. You could easily double this recipe as well. After the 4 hours, mix in your almonds, raisins and agave nectar, or maple syrup. Store in your fridge for up to a week and reheat before serving.


Enjoy ~
