Ingredients

Cereal

  • ¼ cup buckwheat groats (or ground flax seed)
  • ¼ cup hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds (or sunflower seeds)
  • ¼ cup goji berries (or raisins)
  • 6 tbsp chia seeds
  • cups almond or hemp milk

Optional - for sweetness

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Toppings

  • 1 banana, sliced
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • 3 tbsp cacao nibs or cacao beans
  • 12 pecan halves
  • 2 tbsp toasted coconut

Instructions

  • Mix all dry ingredients together.
  • Divide the mixture between two cereal bowls, add almond milk (and maple syrup, if using) and whisk.
  • Set aside for at least 15 minutes (stirring regularly) to allow the chia to expand.
  • Add toppings and enjoy!

Notes

  • Don’t worry if you don’t have all of these toppings – the beauty of this cereal is that you can customize it and make it your own. Try adding any seeds, fruits, superfoods and nut butters you love. Get creative and go with your instincts. Food is all about enjoyment after all!
