I’m not claiming this is healthy, But by spreading the chocolate thinly, the idea is you’ll eat less of it!

Chia seeds are having their moment just now and rightly so! They are power houses of nutrition, including protein, fibre, omega 3 and anti-oxidants. This means they’re great at breakfast to see you through to lunch without the munchies or to stop the evening snacking. This recipe is quick to whip up with only three ingredients and it keeps well in the fridge so I make a batch on a Sunday evening so that my weekday breakfasts are sorted all in one go. Don’t be put off by the word ‘pudding’ in the title - that just describes the texture, although I admit that some people find the texture a little bit ‘gelatinous’!! It’s also lovely warmed up like porridge when the temperatures start to fall again. midlifemenu.com/recipes/coconut-chia-puddingRead More
