Superfood Flax Meal Cereal

1/4 cup ground flax seeds

2 tbsp. chia seeds

1 tablespoon Ancient Nutrition Multi-Collagen Protein, plain or vanilla (optional)

Optional toppings:

1 small apple (or ½ large), chopped

Handful of fresh berries

1 C. chia seeds

A small handful of walnuts, almonds, pecans, or pumpkin seeds (toasting nuts/seeds ahead of time brings out the flavor!)

2 tbsp. Let’s Do Organic Coconut Flakes

1 C. Navitas cocoa nibs


Add flax seeds, chia seeds, collagen (if using), cinnamon and almond milk to a bowl. Mix until homogeneous. Microwave for 90 seconds. Stir and let sit for a few minutes to thicken. The mixture will get thicker the longer it sits. Add desired toppings and enjoy!
