I’ll keep it real simple! You need to go make these brain and heart-healthy breakfast cups right now. Loaded with chia seeds, chocolate, and peanut butter this is a nutrient-dense and easy breakfast.
In addition to its health properties (more on that below) they are super delicious, without the guilt! Perfect for breakfast, as a snack or post-workout meal. They are rich in healthy fats and would make a great after school treat for the kiddos.
Confession, I actually ate these before my kids got home because they were so good. So don’t tell them ok!
We ended up having a pretty crazy week. With school ending and summer break starting and it was already a hectic end to June. Then Micah, my little guy, went and broke his leg! Just in time for our cottage trip. You know the cottage on the LAKE! My heart is broken for him, obviously because he is in pain, but mostly because he will be missing out on some fun. A total water baby, I can’t imagine that just watching his brothers jump in and out of the lake to be much fun. But, with all the other cottage activities I am confident we can keep him entertained..and away from the lake!
I plan on making these up there and they will be the perfect treat after a day on the lake. My older boys have the best time. Canoeing, swimming, boating, eating ice cream and playing with their cousins. We are lucky to get these summer days with family.
Anyways, here is the recipe for these super easy peanut butter chia cups. You can use any peanut butter but I LOVE a good crunchy one. And for the yogurt my fav is coconut but my older son is not a coconut fan so I make his with soy or almond yogurt. If you are in a rush you can let the chia sit in the yogurt for an hour instead of overnight, but overnight (or 4 hours) is best if you can spare the time.
Here are a few health-related reasons to why you should be making these too!
Ok now on to the recipe… I would love to see your re-creations over on Instagram, be sure to tag me @at.my.table so I can see how it turned out and share!
6 tbs chia seeds
3 cups coconut yogurt
2 tbs cocoa powder
