Chia Seed Breakfast Bowl

This chia seed breakfast bowl recipe was inspired by my son and his wife! 

They absolutely love it! And it’s not hard to see why… 

Chia seeds contain minerals our body needs like calcium and iron in addition to protein and lots of fiber! In one chia seed breakfast bowl, you eat 2 Tbsp of chia seeds which give you about a third of your daily fiber.

These bowls are quick and easy, and after eating one, you’ll feel full of energy and nutrients!

And the best part… these chia seed breakfast bowls taste wonderful!

Now maybe you’re saying, “yeah that sounds great! But I get tired of eating the same thing every day. How can someone eat this all the time?” 

Well these bowls are extremely versatile. All you really need is some kind of liquid like a milk or even water and a couple of tablespoons of chia seeds. You soak the chia seeds in the liquid for 5-10 minutes then add any toppings you can think of and enjoy! Look at the recipe below for add-in ideas.

I hope you try these bowls soon! Let me know how you like them!

To better mornings!

Chia Seed Mixture

Optional Add-Ins

  • Flax Seed, Shredded Coconut, Chopped Bananas, Apples, Pears, Nuts, Berries, Honey, Maple Syrup, Protein Powder, Nut Butter, Applesauce, Yogurt, Cacao Nibs, Goji Berries, Sunflower Seeds, or anything else you can come up with!

Instructions

  • Mix the chia seeds with your liquid and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Make sure the Chia seeds are covered with a little extra liquid because they will expand.
  • While waiting for the chia seed mixture, prepare your add-ins of choice
  • Mix it all together and enjoy!

Notes

Another option is to make chia seed pudding the night before. Simply cover the chia seeds with some liquid and let them sit in the fridge overnight. The next morning all you have to do is add some toppings and breakfast is ready!
This recipe really is extremely versatile! My family and I have come up with all sorts of crazy and delicious combinations.
Right now my son and daughter-in-law are eating this almost every day. Their favorite add-ins are: Almond or Peanut butter, Flax Seeds, Bananas, Apples or Applesauce, Protein Powder, and Yogurt. Sometimes they put all of those things in the same bowl! Then they add liquid until their desired consistency is reached.
