10 uses for chia seeds
- Baked Oatmeal – The chia seeds are added to a banana and blueberry baked oatmeal casserole. One of the commenters said that she uses apples in something like this. Considering it’s fall, I think banana and apples would be the way to go with this vegan, gluten-free breakfast.
- Lemon Chia Seed Muffins – Instead of poppy seeds, these muffins use chia seeds. Seems like a reasonable exchange, right?
- Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter with Hemp, Flax, and Chia Seed – The seeds are roasted with the almonds and then they’re all processed together to make a nut butter with extra nutrition.
- Peanut Butter Banana Chia Seed Roll Up – A quick breakfast or healthy after-school snack on whole wheat tortilla.
- Chia Seed Flatbread – The seeds add extra nutrition to versatile flatbread.
- Lentils with Chia Seeds – Watch the amount of salt in this recipe; it’s obviously wrong. But if you salt it to taste, you’ve got a nice side dish.
- Endurance Crackers – Chia, sunflower, pepita (or pumpkin) and sesame seeds are all in these power-packed homemade crackers.
- Chia Meatballs – They work as a binder in meatballs.
- Cornmeal and Chia Waffles – No white flour in these vegan waffles.
- Sauteed Zucchini with Toasted Chia Seeds – A quick garlicky side dish.
