I really like chia seeds, they are amazing small power houses that add extra protein, fiber, magnesium, manganese and calcium to your diet. Give a try to my no carbs almond and chia biscuits , chia pudding and chocolate overnight oats or popcorn trifleall of them featuring chia seeds.

chia and flax seed biscuits 2Chia seeds are very versatile, combine them with ripe, sweet bananas, bake them and you get yummy, crunchy biscuits, perfect to keep in your bag and pop in your mouth whenever you feel a bit peckish.

Chia and flax seed biscuits 1If you don’t have chia seeds in your cupboard (what??) try flax seeds, also known as linseeds. They are slightly higher in fat than chia seeds, but more crunchy. Packed with Omega-3 essential fatty acids, fiber and antioxidants they are known to keep you regular, improve heart disease risk and lower cholesterol levels. Sometimes you have to get the best of both worlds so I combined chia with this flax seeds mixture from Aldi to create a 3rd option.aldi

    I could not get these to set! I ended up with hot banana mash stuck to parchment. Suggestions? Please!

      Hello Melissa,

      maybe you need more seeds? It seems you had more banana than seeds, or did you use ground flax seeds? Please email me [email protected] so we can think together what it could be. I have made these this week with sesame seeds and poppy seeds and both turned out lovely. Hedi xxx

          Hello Michele, flax seeds are also known as linseeds and you can buy them in any shop including Tesco, Asda or Holland & Barrett. Hope this helps, Hedi xx

    Yummy. I put a raw unsalted cashew ontop each one about 5 mins in for added crunch!

    I find it rather amusing that a message at the top of your webpage tells me
    “This site uses cookies”

    I am a great fan of flaxseed, eating a bowl of ground seeds (about 80grm) mixed with milk as a breakfast cereal. I found your site whilst searching for healthy snacks for my 6 year old daughter. Biscuits, crackers or cookies – here we come!
