Ah, the mighty chia seed. Not only are chia seeds gluten free, but these tiny superfoods are an amazing source of protein (boasting all 8 essential amino acids!), omega-3 fats, calcium, and iron.
They also have a balancing effect on blood glucose levels, which makes them great for weight-loss. Ready to add them to your menu plan? This sweet and savory pudding is the perfect way to enjoy all their awesome benefits!
½ cup chia seeds
1 ½ cups of water
½ cup of tahini (ground sesame seeds)
1 Tbsp. natural coconut flakes
½ cup crushes blueberries
1 tsp. organic hazelnut spread (optional)
1. Pour the water into a large bowl and add tahini and chia seeds. Stir until well combined and let sit for about 10 minutes.
2. Mix in your coconut flakes, blueberries, and hazelnut spread (if using) just before serving. Serve and enjoy!
