Chia Raspberry Prune Breakfast

This chia raspberry prune breakfast is so delicious it reminds me (for some reason) of rhubarb crumble.

Chia seeds are the superfood of the last few years and I too have to admit that I have jumped in and think they are fabulous, especially in creating quick, easy and healthy breakfasts.

And here are some impressive stats about the tiny little superfood:

A  1 ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains
Fiber: 11 grams.
Protein: 4 grams.
Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
Calcium: 18% of the RDA.
Manganese: 30% of the RDA.
Magnesium: 30% of the RDA.
Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA.
They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.
pretty impressive when you consider that this is just a single ounce, which supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate!

Prunes are another food I like to use in small amounts, not only for the added sweetness, but the wonderful health benefits, including their ability to relieve constipation, provide antioxidant protection, prevent pre-mature aging, promote cardiovascular health, and reduce the risk of cancer and osteoporosis

Added to all that is kiwifruit, raspberries and ground almonds and you have a super nutritional breakfast (or snack or healthy dessert) that only takes a few minutes to put together.

If you are after more nutritious easy breakfast ideas try these Strawberry Overnight Oats or Apple Crumble Overnight Oats or Chia Raspberry Mousse to name a few.

This can be made the night before or up to 1 hour before.
