With all the candy and sugary treats parading around for Halloween, these Chocolate Chia Chews can throw a little healthy balance in the mix!
Healthy Chocolate Treats with Chia Seeds
- 2/3 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
- 2/3 cup filtered water
- 2-3 grade B maple syrup adjust to taste
- 3 grass-fed gelatin
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 3 raw cacao powder
- 2 raw maca powder
- ¼ tsp sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Warm the mixture to just below a simmer (it will feel hot but not burning). Transfer to a large measuring cup with spout. Portion out into a silicone ice cube tray (like this one) or pour into a small glass baking dish.
Refrigerate until set, about 1+ hours. Invert the ice cube tray and push the chews out. If using a small baking dish, run a warm knife around the edges to remove. Then cut into squares. Store chews in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
