big bag of chia seeds, thinking it would be an easy way to add some fiber and nutrients to our diet (and Henny's runnier baby foods). I knew that when chia seeds are soaked in liquid, they absorb it and form a type of gel, thickening whatever liquid they're in. I decided to try making a chia seed pudding, and it's SO easy it's criminal.
3 Tbsp chia seeds*
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup*
Combine all ingredients. Let sit for 20 minutes, stirring every five minutes to make sure all seeds are incorporated. Allow to soak for a minimum of 4 hours in the refrigerator.
*One bonus thing about this recipe is that all of the ingredients have a long shelf life and do not require refrigeration (except coconut milk after it's been opened). Food storage fist bump!
