Chia Porridge

A protein rich 'porridge' alternative. This breakfast recipe is egg free, nut free and like all of our other recipes is also gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. 

This recipe is also really fun to make with the kids as they watch the chia seeds (or frogs eggs as we call them) swell!
