Choco-Cherry Oats and Chia Breakfast Cereal


Made this recipe up this morning and it was a huge hit with the kids and myself. Joshua ate all of his, and then screamed for MINE! ;-)

I have finally figured out the right ratios of oats/seeds/water, so that I can post the recipe!

In a bowl combine:
1 cup of oats
5 tbsp of chia seeds
2 2/3 cup of water

Stir it once, and then again after about ten minutes. You are then going to let this sit overnight, in the fridge if you like, I just leave mine on the kitchen counter, covered, so that it's not so chilled when we eat it.

20 cherries, pitted
2 tbsp of raw coconut butter (I use the Artisano brand and get it at Central Market)
2 tbsp of Nutiva chocolate hemp protein powder
handful of pecans (you can use any nut you like)
agave to taste preference

Put all of this in your food processor and blend it on the pulse mode, so the cherries are still a bit chunky.

Scoop oat/chia mixture into a bowl and add topping mix, and close your eyes and enjoy! It's heavenly!

Love one another!~Yvonne
