Optional: chopped walnuts and raisins (for garnish)
Put the coconut milk, grated apples, vanilla, cinnamon and lemon juice in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until apples are soft and liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Add in the maple syrup (if using) and a pinch of sea salt.
Remove the applesauce from the heat and stir in the chia seeds. Let applesauce sit for 5 minutes for chia seeds to thicken. Garnish with chopped walnuts and raisins if desired. Enjoy warm or cold.
