Easy Morning Chia Cakes
Cake for breakfast? What! Wait up a second.
I thought you said this blog was packed with healthy plant based options, not sugar laden ones.
It sure is, I haven't fallen off the band wagon, I promise. These little tasty fellas don't have any sugar in them and they pack about 5g of protein a pop. So yes. You can have your cake and eat it too.
So what are these easy chia cakes like?
Well, let me tell you. They are scrumptious. A little crumbly. A little sweet & perfect with a big bowl of fruit & some yogurt or as is as a quick breakfast with a cup of tea.
You can whip up a batch of these in a few minutes flat, in a bowl or in the mixer if that's your preference. They may look like they wont quite hold together, and that's okay. As the chia soaks up the liquids, they get a little glue-y and hold things together just fine. If you want to be extra sure they stick together, swap the maple for honey! Let me tell you though, it may make them a touch less crumbly.
