Breakfast / Raw Coconut Chocolate Chia Porridge

Raw Coconut Chocolate Chia Porridge

We’ve gotten lots of request for more recipes with chia seeds. In this one, we use chia seeds to make a super tasty and nutritious porridge.

This is one of my favorite recipes, the combination of the chia seeds and tahini, with the crunch of the cacao nibs, and desiccated coconut makes it a beautiful taste experience. And, of course, it's loaded with antioxidants, omega 3’s fiber and protein, so it’s great for you!

Serves: 18 balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp hemp seeds
  • 3 Tbsp raw organic cacao powder
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil

  • 1 tsp spirulina (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract

Combine cashews, almonds, chia and hemp seeds together in food processor until well ground.

Add remaining ingredients until well combined.

Form balls by shaping mixture in the palm of your hand. Store in fridge to harden.

Tip: If you live in a cool climate, you may like to melt coconut oil prior to adding to mixture. The best way to do this is using the double boiler method and keep heat low. Place coconut oil in heat-proof bowl into a pot of water. Heat slowly until coconut oil liquifies.
