4-Ingredient Easy Chocolate Chia Seed Bars

Print

Chia Seeds are a great source of calcium. My family are dairy-free due to my toddler’s allergies so I am conscious to try to get as much calcium from other sources into our diet as possible. This is a very yummy way to enjoy a nutrition hit! As with all my recipes, this is free from dairy, soy, egg, nut, wheat, gluten and refined sugar. It is also AIP/Auto Immune Protocol friendly.

Further Food Commentary:

Although this slice is certainly a dessert treat, it is an excellent alternative to a store bought, sugar packed slice. In addition to calcium, chia seeds and coconut are also good sources of plant-based iron. This sweet chia slicee should be enjoyed in moderation, but you can feel better knowing that a serving has 5g of fiber, some protein, and a very low sodium content. The jury is still out on saturated fats, but if you are watching your intake, you may want to avoid this particular recipe, since coconut is loaded with saturated fats.

      @disqus_N7HLjly6rd:disqus The best cocoa to buy for these is 100% raw unprocessed cocoa. It has the most intense flavor, and the highest number of antioxidants!
