Sweet Breakfast Bowl w. Chia & Almond Base

I want to share a breakfast recipe that will change how you start your day.

Introducing: Chia & Almond Porridge, a dish packed with nutrition and flavor.

This porridge is the perfect option for those who are always on the go or need to prepare meals in advance.

It’s easy to make ahead and store in the refrigerator. It stays fresh and delicious for days.

It’s also a great option for those on the go, as you can take the dry ingredients with you in a jar and mix in your favorite liquid for a delicious breakfast base in just a few hours.

But this breakfast dish isn’t just for busy bees; it’s also a versatile and beautiful meal you can style and flavor however you like.

Try making it with coconut milk, adding your favorite homemade compote, spices, roasted nuts, or seasonal fruit.

You can make it look gorgeous by arranging all your delicious choices around the edge of the bowl and treat yourself or someone you love to a beautiful breakfast.

Course Breakfast
Servings 2 portions
Calories 154kcal


  • 400 ml almond milk or any milk of your choice
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed or sub with 2 additional Tbsp of chia
  • A generous handful almonds or hazelnuts, chopped
  • ½ tsp ground vanilla


  • Fruit – mango, avocado, orange, banana, pomegranate, kiwi, apple etc.
  • Berries – fresh or frozen
  • Nut butter  – E.g almond butter or the classic peanut butter
  • Dried fruit – dates, abricots, cranberries, figs
  • Jam  / Compote eg. this sugar free berry version with chia
  • Extra crunch – nuts & seeds, roasted coconut, cocoa nibs, bee pollen, fresh mint leaves


  • Prepare the porridge the night before. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, cover and place in the fridge. Give it a stir or two before bedtime and let in soak all night.
  • In the morning you divide your porridge into two bowls. Dress the porridge with the topping your prefer. I try to use at least a thing from each category to make it as delicious and tasty as possible.
  • The porridge keeps well for 2-3 days in the fridge, and is hereby the perfect to-go breakfast or snack meal.


Many recipes for chia porridge has chia seeds as the only thickening agent. I think this makes the texture of the porridge a little slimy and too wobbly to my preference. So whenever I make chia porridge I add ground flax and chopped nuts to give a more grainy and crunchy texture. But you can of course switch flax with more chia if you do not mind the texture.
