Chia Seed Super Breakfast – With Oat Flakes

I picked this breakfast idea surfing the web. Mr. Lazy Cook’s version is simplified somewhat from the original which was from a vegan website.

How good are Chia Seeds for you? Find out here.

Actual prep time is very short, but then you put it in the fridge overnight to set. So you need to remember to fix one before you go to bed if you want it for breakfast, which I recommend strongly. Very nutritious. There are 16 grams of fiber and 16 grams of protein.

This is how it looks without the berry or nut toppings

Start with 3 tablespoons of Chia Seeds
1/3 cup of oats flakes
1 cup of vanilla soy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Stevia (or your preferred sweetener) to taste.
Mix together in a bowl and place in fridge.

The next morning you can add any of the following:
1 chopped banana
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1/8 cup Broken walnuts

Here is the nutritional breakdown:
Calories 360
Fat        14 grams
Sat Fat    1.6 grams
No cholesterol
Sodium 100 mg
Carbohydrates 41 grams
Fiber 16 grams
Protein 16 grams

This breakdown does not include any of the optional toppings. The 1/8 cup of walnuts will add 8.2 grams of fat, no cholesterol or sodium, 1.7 grams of carbs, 1 gram of fiber and 2 grams of protein.

I have had this breakfast once, this morning. I liked the taste and texture. I also found that it gave me a nice fueled feeling that lasted for several hours. I ate it plain the first time. Tomorrow I plan to add blueberries and walnuts.

Please share your experience if you try it out.

The original recipe is from the Choosing Raw website. It used quinoa flakes which I didn’t have instead of the oat flakes which I did have.

If you want to satisfy your sweet tooth later in the day, try our Chia Seed Chocolate Shake. Also, Supermodel Miranda Kerr likes Chia seeds, too.
