What to do:

  • Soak chia seeds with ¾ cup water. Should form a gel after 5-10 min.

  • Prepare steel cut oats. Bring 3 cups water to a boil. Add ½ tsp salt and  cup oats. Reduce heat to simmer. Cook 10-20 minutes, stirring occationally. If you’re like me you will overflow the oats everytime. I hardly even aspire not to anymore, and drive Joe crazy messing up the stove top. If you leave uncovered, or only partially covered, have a good low simmer setting, and keep a close eye you may be able to keep things clean!

  • Meanwhile, cut up your mango into cubes.. Also a messy endeavor!

  • Plate oats, then chia seed gel, then mango.

  • Pour maple syrup over and top with coconut or hemp seeds

  • Enjoy!
