I found this recipe online when I was doing a search for recipes using chia seeds. I unfortunately don’t remember what site I found this on – it was from a company that sold them, and the recipe was sent to them by a customer. I slightly adapted it; it’s an easy recipe filled with healthy and tasty ingredients.
Chocolate Coconut Chia Bars
- 1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
- 1/3 c. cocoa
- 1/2 c. xylitol or 1/4 c. honey
- 1/3 c. coconut milk
- 2 tsp. chia seeds
- 1 1/2 c. dried coconut flakes
- 1/4 c. sliced almonds
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Combine all the ingredients, stirring until everything is mixed well. Spread the mixture on a baking pan in a thin layer, and put in the freezer or refrigerator to set. Cut into small squares to serve.
As requested, details to come about chia seeds in a separate post.
