It is formal. I’m on a chia seed kick. Anyone else?

I locate myself putting it in and on every thing I can: on prime of oatmeal, in my smoothies and protein shakes, on prime of peanut butter toast. The finest although? Dipping bananas in dim chocolate and then in a sea of chia seeds. They are so fabulously crunchy, sweet and irresistible. Additionally all that very good nutrition in just a little seed? I mean, how can you not like them?

This recipe is an adaptation from my buddy Katie‘s recipe for Peanut Butter and Banana Baked Oatmeal observed in her new cookbook The Substantial-Protein Vegetarian Cookbook

. I was so enthusiastic when I received a duplicate of Katie’s cookbook due to the fact my mother is typically vegetarian and I realized this cookbook would supply some remarkable, scrumptious protein-packed recipes for her.

The High-Protein Vegetarian Cookbook

In the guide, Katie would make the oatmeal with an egg and normal milk, but I opted for almond milk and a chia seeds rather.

Nutrition in chia seeds:

You may be questioning why I used chia seeds as a substitute of an egg? Perfectly here’s the thing… whilst I appreciate the diet of an egg, I’m in adore with the fiber, protein and omega 3s that chia seeds pack in.

In truth, did you know that 1 tablespoon (a serving) of chia seeds pack far more than 5g of fiber and 3g of protein?! Yes to that.

How to meal prep this baked oatmeal:

This breakfast is terrific for reheating and getting on the go. The moment the oatmeal is carried out baking, only wait for it to awesome, then lower into personal squares and position in personal containers. Upon reheating, just pour a few more tablespoons of almond milk on leading to be certain the oatmeal doesn’t dry out. I enjoy serving mine heat, spread with further peanut butter on best and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Up coming time, I believe I might include a number of fresh new raspberries right before baking for a PB&J twist.
