Healthy Chia Oatmeal Porridge

This Chia Oatmeal Porridge is so good and so healthy!

Plus the fact is sooo easy to make! I have it a couple times a week.

There's no extra sugar. It's all real good for you food.

You'll need a ripe banana, chia seeds, oatmeal and milk. Plus any toppings you like to put on it.

Chia Oatmeal Porridge Ingredients

Start by mashing your banana till it's nice and smooth. Then add a tablespoon of chia seed.

Next, add a quarter cup of instant oatmeal. 

I haven't always added oatmeal. When I'm doing a Whole 30 Challenge, I eliminate all grains from my diet. So, FYI, this is just as good without the oatmeal! :)

Mashed banana, chia seeds and oatmeal

Mix them up until they are well blended.

Mix all ingredients

Then add milk until it is mostly covered. I like to use cashew milk. The consistency is very creamy, and it's only 25 calories per cup, but you can use any milk you like.

Add Cashew Milk

Once it's well blended, you need to put it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes. This just makes it thicken up.

Mix in milk til smooth

Now you'll want to add all of your yummy toppings. 

My favorite toppings are chopped up apples, raisins, sliced almonds, and cinnamon. There is no need for any sugar, honey or syrup. The banana is all the sweetness you'll need, trust me!

Add Toppings to Chia Oatmeal Porridge

Cook it in the microwave for approximately two minutes.
