Hi, FOUR WORDS: Low carb healthy breakfast. This is an easy to prepare healthy breakfast option for those busy mornings when you’re trying to get yourself fed and out the door. It’s great for meal prep and easy to customize!


  • 1 cup flaxseeds, ground
  • 2 cups alternative milk of your choice- or even water if you’re in a pinch! (I used almond milk here)
  • Optional: sweetener of choice, 2-3 dates pitted and diced, 1 mashed banana, 1 TB honey or maple syrup
  • pinch of salt

Check out this sugar-free blackberry jam! It’s made with flaxseeds also.


  1. Combine the ground flaxseeds and milk together in a bowl.
  2. Add a pinch of salt and your sweetener of choice (optional).
  3. Wait 30-60 minutes in the fridge or overnight for this to set to a pudding like consistency.
  4. Alternatively, you could blend whole flaxseeds + all other ingredients in a blender for 30-60 seconds, then portion and refridgerate until set.
  5. Top with all your favorites and enjoy!


* Top this with yogurt, granola, fresh fruit and chopped nuts for winning health & flavor combinations! I love vegan vanilla yogurt with chopped strawberries, bananas, and hazelnuts! Think: blueberry + chocolate chip for a classic combo or mango & pineapple with macadamia nuts for a tropical summer twist!

* You can adjust the final texture of this recipe by altering the amount of liquid. Want this in a thinner, more porridge-like consistency or ultra thiccccc and hearty? You can make that happen. Add more liquid for a thinner consistency or less to thicken things up! You do you, friends.

* You can also portion this out into individual containers before you let it set. Tupperware to easily take breakfast with you on the go or stemware to start your day off feelin’ regal, you’ve got options and you know how to use them!
