Like I said, I've been working on the Rising Sun Smoothie on and off for a while. Other than that, breakfast has been a banana. But the bananas for today weren't ripe so I made overnight oats and chia for breakfast. Ah, the old standby. It's been at least three weeks since I've had something like this.
I bulked it up a bit extra (not that it really needs it - ) with some seeds and dates, so it's more like a raw museli than a chia pudding or a bowl of oatmeal. It was delicious, and a welcome change.
1/4 c oats
1.5 T chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 T raw sunflower seeds
1 T raw pumpkin seeds
2 dates, chopped
cinnamon to taste
pinch of salt
-mix the oats, chia, and vanilla extract in a bowl and just cover with water. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes.
-add seeds, chopped dates, cinnamon and salt. Add about 2 T more water and stir again.
-cover and let sit in fridge overnight.
