Apple cinnamon chia seeds pudding
When I want a quick breakfast or snack I use to throw in a bowl some yoghurt, apple cinnamon and maybe honey. This follows the same principle. It’s ready in less than 10 minutes. Simply warm up the milk (let it simmer, not boil), stir in the chia seeds, let sit, and top with apple slices, coconut flakes, and cinnamon. Tip: Sauté diced apple with cinnamon and a teaspoon of maple syrup for an even more pie-like meal.
