LCHF Bounty Chia Seed Pudding

OMG! This is  soooo delicious! The boys love this at room temperature in their reusable Sinchies pouches (the boys looooove dark chocolate) and I love this chilled (however my husband runs from the words ‘chia seeds’ so more for us!)!! When served at room temperature/warm, this has a pudding-like texture. When served chilled, this has a thick indulgent mousse-like texture – and I personally think it tastes sweeter when served cold (might be psychological!).

I’m not great with sticking to diets (I’m more of an ‘in moderation’ dieter) but this is delicious AND is LCHF (Low Carb Healthy Fat)!

The boys love eating this in their Sinchies pouches! You can keep it in the fridge, then leave it out on the bench for a bit till room temperature and it will be nice and gooey to suck out!

Sesame, Chia and Flax Seed Snaps

I buy the storebought sesame seed snaps a lot as the whole family loves it! These taste exactly like the storebought stuff – but with extra goodness with chia and flax seeds which add nicely to the crunch! I have tried this recipe with both brown sugar and coconut sugar – both turn out amazing! I find the brown sugar sweeter, and more like the storebought stuff. The coconut sugar version isn’t as sweet and is slightly less crunchy than the brown sugar version (though they are still pretty crunchy – you would only notice if eating them one after another!)

Notes

*Some mixture sticks to the top sheet of baking paper depending on the angle or how quick you pull it off. You can spray some cooking spray on the sheet of baking paper so it peels off easier. **The coconut sugar version isn't as sweet, and is slightly chewier than the brown sugar version (however it still has a crunch).

5 Second Chia Seed Pudding

I used to eat this everyday when I was actively trying to get pregnant/found out I was pregnant, and wanted to put super healthy food into my body! I’m not generally a health, superfood kind of person, but when it came to my pregnancy, I was moreso than usual! Now that I need more energy and need to be more organised with two toddlers, I have started making my Chia Seed Pudding’s again so it’s all ready to go for breakfast, or for a snack.

The Chia seeds are crunchier when eaten soon after being mixed with liquid, the longer you leave it to set, the Chia seeds expand and the consistency turns into a pudding and ‘gelish’ texture.

I add the dates for a natural sweetener, and the sunflower seeds and almonds for some texture (even though the LSA already has it in a ground form). You can mix it up and substitute with different ingredients or flavours – i.e. cacoa/cocoa powder instead of vanilla bean paste.

You can also add and mix fresh fruit or berries through, however it would need to be eaten within 24 hours or it tends to get a bit ‘funky’. I like to keep it plain so it can be kept in the fridge for a few days and ready to go when I want some pudding!

 
Add all ingredients into the bowl
 
Mix 5 seconds/Speed 6
 
Eat immediately, or leave in fridge to set for a few hours/overnight. Can be left in the fridge for a few days ready for your consumption!
