I finally managed to find a tasty and healthy option for my breakfast. Please escort the Nutella out of here – that’s how serious I am.
When I first wanted to try chia seeds and went down to my local store to get them I ended up with the cheapest but maybe not safest option : almost 1 kg of those tiny black seeds.
I tried several random recipes of chia pudding but was a bit put off by the jelly like texture and quite neutral to earthy taste of the seeds. After a short period of trial and error and largely inspired by a recipe on The Anna Edit’s YouTube channel, here’s what finally works for me and even convinced my hubby to have breakfast / eat chia seeds:
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
2 tablespoons of oats
1 cup of Almond milk (or any milk you want)
3 tablespoons of Yogurt – I prefer plain regular yogurt
1 tablespoon Maple syrup
1 cup of fruits in small bits, at least
I simply pour in a container the oats and seeds, cover it largely with milk and stir, and then add up all the remaining ingredients. You can of course use any fruit you like but I find that something that brings a crunch is very appreciated and I use blueberries and pomegranate seeds (sometimes raspberries too, I cannot lie, it’s on the picture).
Let me know if you try the recipe and if you have any variant worth trying !
