For a simple everyday jam, soak ¼ cup of Viva Naturals Organic Chia Seeds in ½ cup water for approximately five minutes. Heat two cups of chopped strawberries, one cup of blueberries and ⅓ cup of honey or agave on medium heat until soft, about 12-15 minutes. Mash berries lightly with a fork or potato masher. Remove from heat and add in chia mixture. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
Chia seeds serve as an ideal thickener and binder, making them perfectly suitable for vegan recipes and for individuals with egg sensitivities. Simply add one tbsp of Viva Naturals Organic Chia Seeds to three tbsp of water in small bowl, stir and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes until the seeds form a gel. This recipe replaces one egg and can be used in a variety of desserts including cakes, muffins, cookies or other baked goods.
When ground, chia seeds serve as an excellent gluten-free alternative to conventional grain flours. Simply place the desired amount of Viva Naturals Organic Chia Seeds in a food processor or coffee grinder until the seeds form a meal similar to wheat flour. For recipes that call for one cup of gluten-free flour, replace up to one quarter of a cup with ground chia meal to boost the nutritional integrity of your favorite dishes. Prepare breads, desserts or crackers with hearty chia meal without sacrificing dense nutrition and rich flavor.
