Chia seeds are tiny seeds that come from a flowering plant related to mint. Their mild flavor and ability to absorb large amount of liquid make chia seeds a versatile ingredient well-suited for use in puddings, smoothies, and baked goods. Combining chia seeds with oat milk and pomegranate syrup creates a perfect make-ahead breakfast.
- In a medium bowl, add oat milk and pomegranate syrup and whisk until combined.
- Add chia seeds and stir well to combine, scraping down sides of the bowl as needed. Let sit for about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to keep lumps from forming.
- Once chia pudding is thickened, divide equally among 4 serving bowls. Either serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until serving.
- Just prior to serving, top with pomegranate seeds, buckwheat groats, cacao nibs, and a drizzle of pomegranate syrup, if desired.
