Chia Cereal

Chia seed seems to be all the rage these days and since it's packed with protein, fibre, and eight times more omega 3 than salmon, there's no doubt as to why. Plus, when it's not providing you with all that nutrition, it's making these:


I decided to make a chia cereal for quick and filling breakfasts. This recipe will make enough to last a while so be sure to have a large resealable container on hand.

Chia Cereal
2 c. Chia seed
11/2 c. Hemp hearts
1/2 c. Buckwheat
2 tbsp. cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a jar.

There are a million ways to top the cereal. To prepare it, I use 3 tbsp. of cereal and about 1/3 c. of liquid (water, coconut milk, or almond milk). Stir in the liquid, and let sit. Chia can absorb nine times it's weight in liquid, so the longer you let it sit the thicker it becomes. I like topping it with fresh or dried fruit and nuts or granola for a bit of extra texture.
