In our house we call it CHIA-SEED-OATMEAL-PUDDING and it's the easiest thing in the world to make:
If you have a "flaker" (one of the top 5 best investments I've ever made) then flake 1/4 c of oat groats. If not, dump about 1/3 cup dry oatmeal into your saucepan.
Add water to cover the oats and rise about 1/2" above the oats, put on medium-high heat and add 1 Tablespoon of chia seeds. Stir the seeds into the oats and cover.
It takes hardly any time to cook, so watch it. When you can tell it's boiling, turn the heat down to low or even all the way off. Stir again, cover and let sit till the liquid is absorbed. This whole process takes only about 5 minutes.
Add 1 Tblsp pure maple syrup and whatever spices you like (LOVE cinnamon in the fall!) but I've also added a little vanilla and it's delish.
Fresh apples are plentiful now, so I dice 1/2 apple and add to it. It's ready to eat then, or you can let it sit a little longer to heat up the fruit. For me, what makes it taste like pudding is adding about 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk. BEST BREAKFAST EVER. In our home we've been eating a boiled egg for protein and this breakfast stays with us easily through the morning!
