#22 Super Chia-Coco-Choco Porridge

Some further experiments with super foods. This lovely raw porridge got me going today, and the making of it started last night.

One portion: 1 dl coconut milk, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 2 tsp cocoa, 0,5 dl oatmeal, 1 water, 1/2 banana, 1 tbsp chopped cashew and 1/2 tbsp chocolate nibs.

Mix together the chia, cocoa and coconut milk, and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning take 0,5 oatmeal and 1 dl boiling water and let soak until you chop and dice your fruit and nuts. Mix the chia pudding and the oatmeal. Place in a serving bowl. Top and decorate with banana, chocolate nibs and cashew nuts.

#15 Chrunchy Crispbread 

imageThe recipe for this awesome knäckebröd: crunchy, healthy, gluten free crispbread of seeds comes from my friend Annukka. She served this in appetizers topped with salmon and liver pate as the starting notes of an exquisite dinner last Saturday.

For a panful of bread you will need

1dl sesame seed, 1 dl sunflower seed, 1 dl flaxseed, 1 dl pumpkin seed, salt, 2 tbsp potato starch, 1/2 dl olive oil and 2 dl boiling hot water.

Mix together all the ingredients and let stand for 10 min. Turn on the oven to 175 C. Take a baking sheet, cover it with paper and pour on the dough. Flatten with another sheet of baking paper. Bake for 45 – 55 minutes.

Once again I did not have all the ingredients in the pantry and had to replace some. The olive oil bottle only had a few drops so I put added some walnut oil. I also mixed in 1/2 dl sesame and 1/2 dl chia seed. The flaxseed I used was  crunshed and next time I’ll try with whole ones.

The bread will turn out super also without the oil.
