I know, I know, going back to work after all the fun of Christmas and New Year can be a little disheartening can’t it? The thought of waking up to the sound of my alarm was already making me sigh, I found myself daydreaming about pressing the “snooze” button before my head had even hit the pillow! With this in mind I decided to prepare my breakfast the night before because I just KNEW I wouldn’t want to get out of bed the next morning! Plus, in my opinion, the thought of a having yummy breakfast to wake up to always makes early mornings that little bit easier to face (Yes and the fact I just LOVE breakfast!). I guarantee this little jar of goodness will have you leaping out of bed (ok , ok maybe leaping is a little TOO far, but I promise it will certainly help!) – Chia Seed pudding topped with Banana and my home made Rawnola. How did I make this heaven in a jar? Have a read below!
What you will need-
- 2 cups of Oats
- 1/2 cup of Chia Seeds
- 1/3 cup of Flax seeds
- 1/4 cup of chopped almonds
- 1/4 cup of chopped hazelnuts
- 1/3 cup of Coconut flakes
- Coconut Milk- 2 Cups to 1/2 cup of Chia Seeds
- 1 Banana
Lets get cooking!
I mixed up oats, sunflower seeds, chopped hazelnuts, chopped almonds, flaxseeds and a few coconut flakes then sprinkled cinnamon and mixed in a little squeeze of honey before baking in the oven for a few minutes to achieve that “crunchy” texture you get from granola. Now in this particular case I made enough to last me a few days, so please bare this in mind when following the recipe! *Half the measurements will make 2 servings*
Chia Seed Pudding:
Soak the chia seeds in coconut milk and half a scoop of whey vanilla protein powder (whey is optional) and leave it in the fridge overnight to soak. It will seem watery when you first put it in the fridge but will turn into a pudding like texture when left overnight.
The next morning all I had to do was cut up a banana and sprinkle some of my already prepared rawnola on top et voilà! A delicious and nutritious breakfast to start your day! You can add any fruit you desire I just love having a banana in my breakfast. It keeps me fuller for longer and energized for the morning ahead! It is also really tasty with blueberries or raspberries! ENJOY 💜
