Chia Oatmeal with Cashew Pudding

serves 1

1/2 c. old fashioned oats

1 t. chia seeds

1 c. cashew milk

a pinch of salt

1/2 ripe banana

2 T. cashew butter

1-2 T. chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)

1 T. buckwheat groats

Put oats, chia seeds, cashew milk and salt in a pot. Place on stove on high heat, stirring frequently. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat so mixture continues to simmer. Continue to stir occasionally. Cook until liquid is absorbed. (About 10 minutes.) While oatmeal is cooking, place 1/2 banana, and cashew butter in a small blender cup or processor. I used my mini Ninja. Once oatmeal is cooked to desired thickness, place about 1/2 of the oatmeal in blender cup/processor. Blend. Place remaining oats in a bowl. Top with banana/cashew butter pudding. Sprinkle with chips and buckwheat groats.
