I am feeling in the “giving” mood today, must be Xmas just around the corner…. I have already posted today but thought you might like a food post too. You’re welcome.
Chia has long be touted as a superfood and can be dated back as a long term staple nutritional food to the Aztecs. Chia is a natural source of Omega-3s, antioxidants and phytonutrients and is a superior plant-based source of protein and fiber. Flaxseeds may be tiny but they are a mighty seed! They are low in carbohydrates, rich in many B group vitamins, contain loads of Omega 3’s which help reduce inflammation and are loaded with fibre.
1/3 cup chia
1/3 cup plus 2 heaped tbs ground flaxseeds (flax meal)
1 tsp cinnamon
Stevia to taste or maple/honey/agave/rice syrup
1 tbs nut butter or coconut butter
1 cup berries (I used frozen mixed berries)
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp Acai berry powder (optional)
Coconut oil- for cooking
Blend everything together in the food processor. Spoon into a hot frypan with coconut oil, you can make them whatever size you like, I made baby ones. Cook like a pancake. Top with organic natural yoghurt or coconut cream and some extra berries.
