This deliciously chewy, seedy and delightfully doughy recipe for chia seed oatmeal is simple to make and will leave you feeling satisfied for hours thanks to fiber-rich chia seeds, flax seeds and hemp seeds.


  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups extra thick cut rolled oats (regular oats will also work but thick cut make it extra chewy!)
  • 1/2 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseeds
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup dried cranberries (or raisins)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon brown sugar


  1. Bring four cups water to a boil in a large pot.
  2. Add oats, hemp hearts, flax seeds, chia seeds, dried cranberries and brown sugar (if using) to the boiling water and mix over high heat for one minute, stirring regularly.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to sit and cool a bit as it thickens. (The mixture will grow a bit and you’ll have about 6 cups of super seedy oatmeal.)
  4. Serve with milk, almond milk or yogurt and top with your favorite toppings. Refrigerate leftovers in an air-tight container.
