Ya’ll really love your chia seeds, or would love to give them a try. Well, without further adieu, the random winner of the 2lb. bag of chia seeds is…

Comment #24:


Robin – please e.mail me your mailing address, so you can make your chia oats ASAP!

Today is my last weekend day at home [I leave Friday], so I felt like a special Sunday breakfast was in order.

First, hot lemon water to start the day clean ‘n’ fresh!


Second, vegan coconut oat pancakes – oh yes!

Vegan Coconut Oat Pancakes

original recipe courtesy of: [never home]maker

  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c. rolled oats, processed into flour [put 1/2 cup oats into your food processor and pulse until flour-y]
  • 1/3 c. unsweetened coconut
  • 1/3 c. flax meal
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 T agave syrup
  • 2 T rolled oats
    1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl [fold in the whole rolled oats after everything is sufficiently mixed].
    2. Add more almond milk if necessary.
    3. Oil a pan with coconut oil and set over medium heat.
    4. Do your pancake thing. Top with real maple syrup, walnuts, and whatever else your heart desires.

Blue skies, a hot healthy breakfast, and a 90-minute massage here shortly. This Sunday is shaping up quite nicely :)

I’ll be seeing you soon!

I still haven’t tried chia seeds. I need to find a store where I can buy them. I assume you can at Whole Foods?

Whole Foods for sure! Also, a lot of bloggers sell them :)
