Banana Bread Chia Pudding!

Look past the eggs and toast and give your breakfast a makeover with my favorite banana bread flavored chia pudding.  Chia seeds are an excellent sources of fiber- 10 g per ounce (about 2 tbsp)! Chia seeds are also high in omega-3 fatty acids, contain protein, and other vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium and phosphorus.  The combination of bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pecans will remind you of banana bread, but without the guilt!
