This sounds like a wonderful way to start the day. My youngest has been dying for me to make something with chia seeds and this may be our recipe to try. Thanks for sharing.
I wonder why I have to use an oven safe dish inside the crockpot . Can’t I just place the ingredients directly in the crockpot ?
It keeps it from sticking and getting crusty and it cooks perfectly this way! Try both ways– you’ll see ?
