Chia Seed Pudding with Banana, Almond Butter and Cacao
Ooook, so I'm officially obsessed with this stuff. I discovered Chia Seed Pudding a while back... but for some reason, I kind of forgot about it. I've been CRAZY busy at work, and have had no time to make breakfast bars, or anything that takes too much time - so I've been resorting to YUMMY chia seed pudding concoctions. I've been adding in a handful of steel cut oats into the mixture, and it's been great! It takes only minutes to make, and is ready by the time I get to work. Here's one (of many) that I've eatin' this past week. I'll be sure to post more soon.
Chia Seeds & Oats Before...
Chia Seeds & Oats After a few minutes...
I got too hungry to take another picture after 15min... But if you refer back to my first Chia Seed Post, you can see how much this stuff transforms :)
