I am in love with chia seeds, I try to incorporate them into my meals as much as possible. Chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, these fats are important for brain health. They are also a great sources of dietary fibre, adding these gems to your diet is an easy way to ensure you are getting a good dose of fibre. They have many more excellent benefits that I could go on but I know you all want the recipe so here it is↓↓↓

▶Ingredients:
•1Cup almond milk
•1tsp agave syrup
•1Tbsp cocao powder
•1Tbsp peanut butter
•1/4 banana
•1/4Cup chia seeds
•Frozen Raspberries

Directions:
Blend almond milk, agave, cocao, PB and banana until well combined. Pour over chia seeds in container with lid and shake up (can also stir), place in fridge for few hours or overnight. Blend raspberries with splash of water and layer with chia pudding. Enjoy ♡

I look forward to Saturday’s as I always make pancakes! I came up with these last week and eyeballed everything so I didn’t have a recipe, so by request I made them again and wrote down the ingredients! Here is the recipe↓↓

Pancakes:
Serves 2 (appx. 10 pancakes)

▶Ingredients:
•1C Oat flour
•1/2C Spelt flour *(see notes below for options)
•1tsp baking powder
•1-2Tbsp xylitol or raw sugar of choice
•1Tbsp cinnamon
•1-1/2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
•2Tbsp cocao powder
•1tsp vanilla
•1 egg
•1/2C applesauce
•1-1/2C unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
•1/2C cold brewed coffee (can use more a.milk instead if don’t have coffee)
•1/2Tbsp chia seeds
•2Tbsp vegan chocolate chips (optional)

*You can use all oat flour or all spelt flour if desired or switch measurements around, also whole wheat flour will work.

▶Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients together until well combined, add all wet ingredients and mix until well combined then add chia seeds and chocolate chips.

Preheat pan and spray with cooking spray or oil of choice. Spoon appx. 1/4C of mixture into pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.

Now for the chocolate topping! Easy peasy.

▶Chocolate Sauce:
•1Tbsp dark chocolate peanut butter melted (or any nut butter of choice)
•1Tbsp cocao powder
•3-4Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
•1tsp raw honey

▶Melt peanut butter, add all other ingredients and whisk with fork until well combined, be patient it will mix. Depending on how thick you like your sauce you can add more or less milk, I used 4Tbsp as I like mine more liquidy. Drizzle over stacked pancakes and top with 1 square of Lindt 85% dark cocao bar chopped.

Enjoy ♡
