Chia Seeds breakfast bowl

Hey guys! The recipe I am posting today is a very healthy breakfast recipe. If you had a heavy dinner or are planning to have a heavy lunch with friends or family outside or even on regular days if you want to start the day feeling light but wholesome then this is the perfect breakfast option and it is so simple to make this bowl. So lets get cooking….

Ingredients:

Milk – 1 and 1/2 cups

Chia seeds – 1/4 cup

Rolled and dry roasted oats – 4 tbsp

De-seeded Dates/Khajur – 3 pieces

Honey – 1 tbsp

Cinnamon powder – 1/4 tsp

Fruits of choice (I have used 1 apple)

Pumpkin Seeds – 1 tbsp

Sunflower seeds – 1 tbsp

Method:

1) Blend the dates and milk together. In a bowl take the chia seeds and oats and add the dates milk to this. Let the seeds soak overnight or at-least for 3-4 hours. (You can keep this in the fridge overnight.

2) After soaking overnight in the morning remove from fridge 15-20 minutes before your breakfast time. To this add the chopped fruits of choice, honey, cinnamon powder and both the seeds, Let it remain for 5 minutes so that all the ingredients are properly soaked in the milk. After 5 minutes enjoy your healthy and wholesome breakfast.

Notes: Consume the chia seeds only after soaking them for atleast 3-4 hours do not consume it as it is because the chia seeds grow in size on soaking and that is the correct way to consume it. If you do not like dates you can directly soak the chia seeds in the milk and consume it the next day morning by adding the fruits as desired. You can also add dark chocolate chips to this bowl. Or add coco powder in the milk to give it chocolate flavor. Avoid using sugar, jaggery or any essence.
