Coconut, Chia and Lime Pancakes (Coconut Flour)

I had made a savoury pancake with chia seeds, so needed to balance it with a sweet pancake.  I am a big fan of the flavour combinations of coconut and lime so threw these into the bowl.   Delicious!  This makes an amazing breakfast or could be a lovely dessert.   A tasty way to sneak some chia into your diet.  I can always distract the Chief Taster with coconut!

Spinach and Chia Pancakes (coconut flour)

Savoury goodness

Since I seem to associate eating pancakes for breakfast I will declare this to be a healthy start to the day.    If you are munching spinach and chia seeds it can only be a good start.   This is a delicious savoury pancake that is great by itself but would be wonderful with a sprinkling of cheese on top too!

Strawberry and Coconut Chia Pudding

I normally use almond milk in my Chia puddings, but this time tried coconut milk.   It was lovely and creamy.  A great version of strawberries and cream for breakfast!  Or a dessert.  I often have chia puddings for breakfast but this can make a lovely dessert option too.  Chia seeds are gluten and grain free but one tablespoon of the little seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk.  More Omega 3 than salmon and more antioxidants than blueberries!  They give you energy and are also great for weight loss as they absorb about 12  times their size in liquid.  So will expand and keep you full as well as being nutritious.  They also keep your blood sugar levels at a sensible level.   They are one of the most versatile superfoods.

Lemon and Blueberry Chia Pudding

Although this pudding was not as thick as the others I have made this week, I still loved the slightly wet texture with the zest of the lemon against the plump sweetness of the blueberries.   Very uplifting and a lovely start to the day. If you wanted it thicker, add another tablespoon of Chia seeds.   Yummy, tell me more Diva…

Nectarine and Ginger Chia Pudding

I was actually looking for a fresh peach to make this but the shop only had nectarines which still worked out well.   They are like smooth peaches really!  Chia seeds are gluten and grain free but one tablespoon of the little seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk.  More Omega 3 than Salmon and more antioxidants than blueberries!  They give you energy and are also great for weight loss as they absorb about 12  times their size in liquid.  So will expand and keep you full as well as being nutritious.  They also keep your blood sugar levels at a sensible level.   They are one of the most versatile superfoods.

Pudding for breakfast? Don't mind if I do..

Pudding for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do..

Chia seeds are a great superfood.  They are rich in omega-3, antioxidants and many minerals. Higher in calcium than milk, and high in fibre.   I wanted to start incorporating these little power seeds into my diet and now have a pudding for breakfast!  Who would have thought the phrase breakfast pudding was healthy?!   The great thing about this is that it is very filling and will keep you full.  Just make sure you drink plenty of water as they are high in fibre and absorb a lot of water.

Ricotta Pancakes

Who needs flour when you have Ricotta!

Who needs flour when you have Ricotta!

Low carb pancakes that are just moreish and made out of Ricotta cheese, with added flaxseed to sneak a bit into your diet too!   The cinnamon and nutmeg add to the sweetness but this is something you could play around to flavour it to your own tastes.   Lemon would be nice with some blueberries served on the side.   Just so yummy…low carb has never tasted so good!
