Lemon Curd and Chia Seed Oatmeal

Lemon Curd and Chia Seed Oatmeal

As some of you may already know I recently got my hands on a bottle of Chia Seeds.  I have wanted to try them out for quite some time, especially for the lovies.  I searched high and low and even with my “google ninja” skills I did not find too many exciting options out there.

I got my little wheels turning and then thought about Lemon and Poppy seeds which are a favorite combo for muffins and many other baked goods.  Then I thought why not substitute the Poppy for Chia seeds!  Ta Da! :)  I was originally going to make pancakes but decided to do something I have not made yet, Oatmeal. I opted to use lemon curd instead of zest to replace the need for any sweetener while lending the lemony tartness.

This is a super quick and delicious start to your morning.  It is just sweet enough without being cloying and it is packed with a lot of nutritional benefits.  I personally always use milk in my oatmeal because I think it adds a creaminess.  In this recipe I used one of my favorite milks (Vanilla Coconut) and it was yummy!

I hope you all give this a try.  Enjoy!

Hey, I use coconut milk and chia seeds in my oatmeal too! So tasty, I’m sort of obsessed with oatmeal right now. It is a lot healthier that my last obsession: M&M’s and Pretzels! I’ll have to try some lemon in my oatmeal sometime :)

Great minds thinking alike. 😉 Haha on the M&M’s and pretzels. :) The lemon curd is really nice addition. Have a great day.

You are brilliant! I love the idea of swapping the poppy seeds with the chia seeds. These look delicious
