Nutritional Information:

 

This is a fantastic breakfast that can be prepared the night before or easily in the morning. Nutritionally speaking, chia seeds are a great vegetarian source of Omega 3 alpha-linolenic acid - beneficial for the brain and heart. Chia seeds are also a good source of potassium, and as they contain all 8 essential amino acids this makes them a complete source of protein. Combined with banana and cinnamon it's a breakfast that is a nourishing alternative to traditional cereal.
