Blueberry Chia Oatmeal
Chia Oatmeal is actually grain-free without actual oats. I use hot water and chia seeds together in a pot, and as it heats up it thickens just like regular oatmeal. This tastes great with some sea salt, and walnuts, as well as cinnamon. The flavors taste like regular oatmeal but even better. To make it a little sweeter you can add some berries on top.
Tip: You want to have the right ratio of seeds to water. As the water boils, the mixture will thicken up. Just don't let it go too long or it will burn the bottom of the pot, keep stirring the mixture to prevent this from happening.
Healthy tip: Regular oatmeal is very high in carbohydrates which can effect blood sugar balance and hinder weight loss. By using chia seeds instead, you are replacing the carbohydrates with a seed that is high in protein and healthy fats.
This makes a delicious breakfast, it also reheats well!
