Raw Chia Superfood Cereal

Chia Seed Superfood Granola 01

I’ve been looking for a low calorie, low sugar granola. Turns out those are hard to find.

You know what they say, if you want something done right you need to do it yourself.

Well, ok…maybe that’s not entirely true. I did find one brand that I loved, but it was a bit pricey for me to buy regularly. I decided to make it myself. Turns out it was ridiculously easy.

No baking. No crazy ingredients.

Just stirring all that superfood goodness.

Chia Superfood Granola Ingredients

Chia Superfood Granola

  1. 1/2 cup organic buckwheat grouts
  2. 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  3. 1/4 cup chia seeds
  4. 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  5. 1/4 cup hemp hearts

Nutritional Info (per 2 tbsp):  Calories: 70, Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 8g, Fibre: 2.5g, Protein: 3g

Is it ridiculous to just say that the instructions are…like…just mix.

Chia Seed Superfood Granola Mix

Well, that was hard.

Chia Seed Superfood Granola 02

Just kidding.

So to eat this divine bunch of love…you take 2 tbsp. of cereal and mix it with about 1/2 cup of almond milk  and let it sit a couple minutes.

Sounds meager, but the chia seeds expand and make it into a delicious, wholesome breakfast. And you can always have second helpings!

Chia seed fan, yay or nay?

    Hello, saw a product at Costco, called Granola…….and today saw the same product as Super Store. I am in Canada. They gave out samples, tasted it, was very good. All high calorie…………….have you tried the muffin in the cup………….1/4 cup flax…….keeps a person full for a long time.

    I would certainly want than 2 tbsp for breakfast……would that be enough for you……….

    looks so nutritious with all those healthy ingredients — I’m a big fan of hemp hearts and that brand in particular.

    I do something similar every morning but I use fresh or frozen berries instead of the dried cranberries. However, I never thought of adding buckwheat, a bag of which my son recently brought home to me from Russia. I read that it is very nutritious (and gluten-free). To your mix above, I would add: 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats, 1/4 cup ground flaxseed, 1/4 cup unsweetened organic flaked coconut, and 1/4 cup raisins. Mix it all together with your ingredients as above and store in frig. I would use 1/2 cup of this mix with almond or soymilk for breakfast, less for a snack. In fact, I just mixed some up and it will last me the week!

    I love to use chia seeds in baked goods and as a thickener for natural jams. We picked a lot of peaches this year – I cooked them down (skins and all) and thickened it with chia seeds alone. So good!
