About Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are a powerhouse of nutrients and packed full of protein and fibre.
Chia pudding is a popular way of enjoying these powerful seeds. Simply prepare the night before by adding chia seeds to your favourite yoghurt (we recommend coconut yoghurt) and leaving overnight. The seeds swell and thicken the yoghurt. Then simply top with homemade granola and fresh fruits for the perfect breakfast.
They can also be used to create a ‘flax-egg,’ ideal for vegan baking. Instructions below on how to create a flax-egg. This can be used wherever a regular egg is used as a like for like replacement. It works by helping to bind the ingredients together within the recipe – perfect for muffins, cupcakes and cakes.
