These Banana Chai Oat Cups are amazing and nutritious to keep you feeling at your best! Of course, it contains our favorite super food; fiber. They’re easy to make and you can even save them in the morning for a nutritious breakfast. Because they say breakfast is “the most important meal of the day”, but is it really? Let’s discuss.
Is Breakfast as Important as They Say?
We have been made believe those who eat breakfast are generally more healthy than those who don’t.
BUUUT these statements are based on observational studies and not real science. Basically, those previous studies decided breakfast was the significant factor and ignored the real significant factor of lifestyle.
Actual Science Has Shown…
Generally, people who eat breakfast eat things like fiber (oatmeal, yogurts, breads). And by now, you should know a high-fiber diet reduces the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and weight gain. Which is all the things researchers decided what makes breakfast eaters healthier. Also, breakfast eaters generally have more active and health-conscious habits like exercising and drinking water.
While those who don’t eat breakfast, typically don’t have the same lifestyle. They are typically smokers and heavy drinkers. And yeah, those lifestyles lead to heart disease and numerous other health effects. So, our research leads us to believe breakfast does NOT determine if a person is healthy or not.
In addition, we learned from our previous blog post, how fasting benefits the body. And we don’t mean not eating for a whole day, but more so simple intermittent fasting. But note, fasting isn’t for everyone. In fact, Registered dietitians encourage you to listen to your hunger cues more so than worrying about “the most important meal of the day”.
Let Fiber be Apart of Your First Meal
Whether you choose to break-your-fast, at 8am or 12pm, we want to focus on why you should include fiber with your first meal
Fiber is a complex carbohydrate that your body doesn’t easily digest. Which is good. This means high-fiber foods sit in your stomach longer than simple carbohydrates, like sugar. This is why you’ll more feel full after eating a bowl of oatmeal than a bowl of sugary cereal.
And, let’s not forget the beautiful bathroom experiences we have when eating a high-fiber diet. Ahh…such a relief!
These Banana Chai Oat Cups can be a great breakfast or snack at the time you feel is right for your body. They are packed with a ton of fiber from the oats and Naturlax! Our Chai Flavored Fiber Powder is what gives these oat cups their delicious flavor. They are great for adults and kids. So, pack it with your lunch or a child’s lunch.

If you aren’t tired of another pumpkin recipe, then these Mini Pumpkin Pancakes are just for you! We wanted to crank out one last Pumpkin recipe before season turns to the winter holidays.
We couldn’t help but notice mini pancakes taking over our feed so we had to give it shot! The content creators had loads of fun making these little flapjacks and we believe you will too!
First we need to clear the air, there is more to these Mini Pumpkin Pancakes than meets the eye. Our mini cakes are packed with one serving of our all-natural Pure Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder. They’re tiny but mighty!
But our Psyllium Powder did a lot more for this mini flapjacks than add some much-needed fiber. We used our Pure Psyllium Powder as an egg substitute in these cakes so they’re completely vegan.
These No-Bake Fiberlicious Cosmic Brownies are vegan, gluten-free, and delicious. The best part is you can get scrumptious brownies without an oven. And who doesn’t love a good brownie recipe that you don’t have to bake?!
There’s nothing as nostalgic as Little Debbie’s Cosmic Brownie treats. While these treats are still oh-so good it may no longer fit our dietary needs. We’ve changed, evolved, and adjusted. But that’s okay, we’re going to let Little Debbie still do her thing and we’re going to make our own tasty creations!
The content creators here love No-Bake recipes because, they’re easy and delicious!
This recipe is inspired by @sixvegansistersvegan treat. But we definitely needed to tweak this recipe by adding wet ingredients into the blender to get a batter-like consistency. Along with our Hazelnut Flavored Psyllium Fiber Powder to make it fiberlicious.
Using a food processor [Blender can work but will take longer], combine cashews, soaked dates, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, 1tbsp of coconut oil, 1 tbsp of honey, 1tbsp of almond milk, and Hazelnut Fiber Powder
Once the ingredients are evenly combined, line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Press the cosmic brownie mix into the baking pan
In the small bowl, melt the coconut oil for the ganache.
Mix in the cocoa powder and agave syrup into the small bowl until combined.
Evenly Pour the ganache mixture on top of the pressed brownies.
Gently top with rainbow sprinkles.
Place the brownies into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
Once the brownies are as chill as you, slice and serve.
It’s time for all things Fall! We’re here to kick off the fall season with our Pumpkin Vegan Baked Pumpkin Oat Bars! As with all our recipes, these oat bars are packed with plant-based fiber to keep your gut healthy. First, let’s discuss why we love this nutritious recipe so much.
Pumpkin Puree: It’s Loaded with Nutrients
Yes, we added our fiber powder to this recipe but there is another ingredient in here that’s packed with fiber. Pumpkin puree. A can of Organic Pumpkin Puree contains at least 3 grams of fiber per serving [1/2 cup]! So, maybe you might consider the Pumpkin Latte? Just kidding, that’s filled with sugar, which is the opposite of fiber.
Anyways, organic pumpkin puree is high in fiber content! Plus, you can find 100% pure pumpkin puree that does not contain sugar! So, it’s keto and low-carb friendly way of increasing your daily intake of fiber. Pumpkin Puree is versatile for most diets but did you know it can help your constipated pets too?! Click here to learn all about the types of fiber you dogs and cats can consume.
Read on to see which fiber powder we used!
The Other Way to Use Fiber
As mentioned above, this oat bar recipe is backed with double the amount of fiber. So, not only will it keep your digestive system happy, but your children’s too! Try this recipe with kids and let us know what they think!
These oat bars are easy, nutritious, and delicious. Perfect to save for breakfast on-the-go or pack into your kid’s school lunch box…at home.
Eat them as is or warm them up in the microwave for a warm and soft oat bar.
Although, some children may outgrow this allergen, some don’t. Luckily, there is more than one way to replace an egg in baking and cooking. And with a lot more vegan products, finding a replacer that works for you has never been easier!
While there is more than one way to replace an egg, this is how we do it at Naturlax😎
But first let’s talk about how this works.
How it Works
Psyllium husk is derived from the plant genus Plantago. The seeds of this plant are what we use to create our psyllium husk fiber products. Pure Psyllium Husk is a great alternative since it’s low in cholesterol, calories, and is a super nutrient!
Now this is what it does: When mixed with water, psyllium fiber transforms into a gel-like substance making it the perfect binding and thickening agent! Binding agents are great for heavier baking recipes like cakes, brownies, and cookies.
But here’s a delicious tip: When making pancakes, use our Chai Flavored Fiber Powder as an egg replacer for a tasty chai flavored pancake! Plus, when you have fiber in the morning, you feel full therefore eating less!
Are you looking for another thickening agent for your sauces? Yes, psyllium husk can also act as a thickening agent for savory sauces and soups! Here’s how it does just that:
As mentioned earlier, our fiber creates a gel-like substance when mixed with fluids. So, when used in sauces, it will definitely thicken without adding extra calories! Here’s how our friend Jasmin used our product in her Firecracker Chicken dish!
