    magpie diner's Note:

    There is a lot of information out there about Chia seeds (Salvia) and what a nutritional powerhouse they are. I'm trying to find new ways to incorporate them into my diet, aside from sprinkling them on breakfast cereal. Recently my health food store handed out a few recipes including chia seeds, which is where this one stems from. I'm no expert but I do know they are high in omega-3, fibre, calcium and protein. I know of vegans using chia seeds soaked in water in place of eggs (or in place of "flax" eggs). I'm planning to post a recipe for chia egg replacer shortly. This page has lots of great information about these seeds - http://www.living-foods.com/articles/chia.html. I halved the original recipe, since these seeds are expensive I didn't want to risk it. If you don't happen to have coconut oil (aka coconut butter), I think it would be fine to leave it out because there is enough oil in the tahini and almond butter to hold things together. These make a fantastic snack.

      Holy cow these are good! The only substitution I made was to use peanut butter in place of the almond butter. Absolutely delectable! Sadly, the nutrition count is way off because it's not adding in the chia seeds, protein powder, or agave. The actual calories are about twice what is listed. Still...who cares? Yum!

      Oh, my, how good are these - ! I used plain rice protein powder, 2 tablespoons honey and two maple syrup and real vanilla - had to omit the almond extract because I had none. These are so good, I'll definitely make them again often. Thanks for sharing this glorious healthy, tasty snack!!
