I tried this store bought cereal last week called Chia Goodness and really enjoyed it, but it contained some ingredients that I normally wouldn’t eat (sugar, buckwheat, and almonds) and also wasn’t organic. There was only about 8 ingredients in it so I figured I could make my own home-made recipe that included more organic ingredients and no sugar, buckwheat, or almonds. Here’s what I came up with!


Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: none

Makes: approximately 4 cups of cereal







Throw all of this together, mix it up, and store in a jar in a cool dry place. You can use less coconut sugar, or omit all together if you are watching your sugar intake. Mine came out tasting a little sweeter than I expected. You could also use date sugar or sucanat instead, you just need something that is powdery. The package of chia cereal I bought said a serving was 2 tbsp cereal in 4 tbsp water; but lets be real here. A decent serving is 1/4c of the cereal in 1/2 a cup of boiling water; suggested servings that are that small are just silly. The package suggests you eat it on yogurt or something, but I think its great on its own. It’s also pretty tasty to eat dry, but make sure you drink enough water with it because chia seeds absorb a fair amount of water and can give you stomach cramps.



I think this recipe was a success! I love the idea of dry cereal because all you have to do is add hot water (or can just eat it dry). It’s easy to throw in a container and take on the go, and it doesn’t contain bananas or almonds either like some of the other paleo hot cereal recipes I have seen. On top of it all, chia is packed full of nutrients! You can read about more nutritional benefits of chia seeds here.



I hope you enjoy this recipe, thanks for reading!

    1. awesome! Yeah the stuff I bought from the store also had buckwheat grouts in it, but I didn't really know where to find those in bulk so I just made do without 🙂 Was still super delicious. Its nice to have something that resembles oatmeal once in a while!
