Healtheries Chia Seed – tested out in a good old Lemon Loaf.

Lemon Loaf.

Lemon Loaf.

So, I am back talking about Healtheries Black Chia Seeds. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a Healtheries Chia Super Sampler and am experimenting with the chia seeds they sent me.

This time I decided to put them to the test on my work mates. While reading about the seeds and looking at various recipes I noticed that lemon features often and that got me thinking about making my Lemon Loaf and seeing if people minded the chia seeds. I adapted the recipe to fit around the seeds and reduced the sugar.

To my surprise the loaf was a huge hit and declared one of the best lemon loaf ever. Maybe even the best lemon based baking! My colleagues had a guess about the seeds and nobody got chia. Someone said they tasted like kiwi fruit seeds, I thought that rather a good analogy.

So if you haven’t tried chia seeds before, this would be a great place to start.
