  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • ½ mashed ripe banana
  • 1 small egg
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup organic whole wheat flour (adjust accordingly so batter isn’t too dry)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  •  

Directions

  1. In a mug, mash your banana with a fork then add the egg, honey, and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly with your fork.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and combine until a nice, thick but smooth batter forms.
  3. Microwave for 45 seconds and remove to check done-ness. You’re looking for a firm, cake-like top that springs back into place when you press it. If it hasn’t reached this point yet, keep microwaving in 15—20 second increments until done (microwave times vary so much depending on mug size and microwave power).
  4. Remove and let cool for a couple minutes then enjoy!

Refined-Sugar Free Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding

Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding

What is this, Bailey? Yet another breakfast recipe?!

YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT PEOPLE!

Or I guess it could be an anytime snack or dessert too, but I usually eat it for breakfast.

I will forever and ever post all the breakfast recipes because there’s just an endless amount of delicious options and I want you all to be able to share in that deliciousness! So here I bring to you the refined-sugar free goodness that is chia seed pudding topped with scrumptious homemade (and easssssyyyyy as can be to make) strawberry chia jam plus a lil extra toppings, obviously.

Holllaaaaaaaaaa!

I love chia seed pudding and I love jam even more, but PSA: most store-bought chia seed pudding and jam is LOADED with added sugars and additives which can be detrimental to your gut. Not to mention, refined sugar actually tricks your brain into thinking you’re still hungry long past the point of fullness. No bueno. It also kills the good bacteria in your gut which you need for proper digestion and to keep you feeling your best!

So moral of the story here is: when it’s at all possible, you should make your own versions of your favorite store-bought goodies so you know EXACTLY what’s going in what you’re putting in your bodies. Remember, you only have one body and you gotta feed it properly so it lasts as long as possible! Oh, and also you should make this Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding because it’s da bombbbbbb.

Have a wonderful Tuesday my peeps!
