Chia Coffee Breakfast Bowl

Chia seeds contain 85 – 93% insoluble fiber. This is fermented in the gut to promote short-chain fatty acids which improves colon health. Fibre slows down glucose absorption and keeps you fuller for longer. Caffeine has multiple potential health benefits, the most well-known benefit being the “pick-me-up” effect it has. With this recipe you can offer a "pick-me-up" for both your brain and gut in one easy and delicious dish.
