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!
