Chia seed 'porridge'

    25 min

    Ok, it's not porridge since it doesn't have oats but it looks just like it! Chia seeds expand in liquid and provide lots of crunch and texture to this filling, fruity breakfast.

    I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it was. I was expecting slimy. It wasn't, at all. I made it the night before and left it in the fridge. The next day, cold, it was good. I admit, I heated it for a few seconds in the microwave to take off the nip (It's snowing outside, so cut me some slack :-) Warmed a bit, the banana cinnamon flavor really jumps at you and the chia seeds still give that bit of crunch. Don't think this is like tapioca pearls, it's not. Oh yeah, I added a drop of vanilla. Thank you Raw_Angel for convincing me to eat this.  -  05 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used this as a base recipe for a meal replacement smoothie. I added 1 tbl of sunbutter (sunflower seed), 2 tbl of raw oatmeal and 1 scoop of whey powder.  -  18 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this is a delicious recipe and I have made it 3 times and each time just as good as the last. If u want it to be thicker and more 'porridge like' I would definitely leave it over night, it loses its colour a bit if u do, but still tastes just as good  -  25 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
