Another special property of chia, is that it tends to blend well with all sorts of flavours and sweeteners! Chia seeds are a great source of essential fats and thus make any meal more nutritious and delicious. I love making chia pudding! And some of my favourite sweeteners to add are maple syrup, honey or coconut nectar. This makes for a delicious and nourishing breakfast! It’s hearty, satisfying and provides you with energy as long as you have the right sweetener in it. Even better, when a natural sweetener is combined with the healthy omega fats in chia seeds – it actually helps to moderate your blood sugar! This keeps you balanced all day long, as long as you are using just a tablespoon (maybe a little more) of sweetener.
If your looking for some ideas on what kinds of sweeteners you can use, watch this!

The amazing thing about Chia seeds is that they are so versatile. They can be used in many ways, from sweet to savory recipes, and anywhere in between. I particularly love to use them in baking because they act as a binder. So I never have to worry about my baking crumbling apart! Simply mix 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water, and you have your paste. My favourite recipe: Pea-licious Banana Muffins.
