1/3 Photos of Chia Protein Packed Chocolate Orbs (Raw - Vegan - Healthy!)
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.
