Recipe Directions

  • 1. Put chia seeds in bowl. Add water. Stir thoroughly RIGHT AWAY otherwise it'll clump up.
  • 2. Add honey and coconut and mix more with your spoon. Chia seeds will absorb a lot of water really fast and thicken up.
  • 3. Add anything else you want, like 1/2 tablespoon pumpkin seeds, a few almonds, 1/2 tablespoon sunflower seeds etc. Just for taste and to give it some excitement.
  • 4. By now your raw chia porridge should be pretty thick.
  • 5. For extra pleasure, top your raw porridge with cashew milk and fresh or thawed blueberries.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw porridge is a perfect way to start your morning! It's great because it's super quick - think 4 minutes or less.

Most mornings I'll start my day with a silky green smoothie. However, if I'm in the mood for a litte more excitement I'll perhaps have raw cereal, raw oatmeal or raw porridge :)

I like to keep both whole chia seeds and milled chia seeds on hand. I use milled chia seeds in this recipe, but in many of my raw chia puddings I use whole chia seed.

PS:  You can use either whole chia seeds or milled chia seeds. Milled is best but whole will do. "Milled" just means ground. If you have a clean coffee grinder that you use for nut and seed grinding you can mill your own.  But you can buy pre-milled chia seeds too. If you can only have one type on hand I'd go for whole chia seeds.

Enjoy your raw porridge for breakfast and let me know what you think!

this is my first experience with chia seeds and it's super yummy! I used the whole seeds and I "eyed" the measurements and think I made too much with not enough water! But it's so smooth and yummy. It's quite an amazing little seed!

The nice thing about this kind of recipe is that you can keep adding more liquid if necessary and it'll get absorbed fast so you can tweak as necessary.

Thanks for your feedback :)
