Baking with chia flour is a great way to get the health benefits. You might grind chia seeds yourself or acquire store-bought chia flour. Chia seeds health benefits mean that everything you bake presents an instant health boost for your body!
What do you bake using chia flour? Here are some enjoyable ideas:
1. Chia Bread.
My husband and I bake bread in the machine every couple of days. We just love the smell of baking bread permeating our home (as well as the yummy taste!). It is simple as anything to use a bread machine. You just throw the ingredients in and press a button. I like to use chia flour in my bread recipes. Often I combine it with whole wheat or barley. You can use all chia flour or experiment with interesting combinations. It just depends what you are in the mood for.
Chia Pizza Crust.
Ordering pizza is fun but not precisely healthy, right? You can make your own pizza at home. It will taste even more delicious and is very healthy for you. Just substitute chia for regular flour. You may possibly need to raise the baking time by about 5% – keep an eye on the oven the first time you try this. We love to pile high the pizza crust with ripe tomatoes, feta cheese, onions and sliced mushrooms. More popular favorites for homemade chia pizza are avocado, marinated chicken breast, baby tomatoes, and red capsicums.
No, cookies do not have to be expelled from your eating regimen for a healthy lifestyle! A cookie every now and then isn’t going to harm you. Just use chia, increase the baking time by a few minutes, and reduce the volume of sugar. I like to use honey, brown sugar, or agave nectar as sweeteners as they are a healthier option for your body than refined white sugar.
Here is an easy scone recipe. Add 2 cups of flour to 1/2 cup each of thick cream and lemonade. Bake in a 200C oven for around ten or fifteen minutes. Scones are one of my favorite munchies, and although they are high in fat you can make this a healthier indulgence by using chia flour! Serve warm with your favorite fruit jam.
5 Tips for Baking With Chia Flour:
- Baking time may vary. Increase the baking time by about 5% of what the recipe calls for, and check the oven often the initial time you try chia flour in a recipe.
- When you’ve found a baking time that works, write it down on the recipe so that you can comfortably refer to it in the future.
- Chia flour is cheap and easy to buy online, so if grinding up your own flour is feeling like a chore, simply buy some in bulk. It will stay fresh for up to five years!
- Try mixing several types of flour together to manifest some diversity in your recipes. Whole wheat, rice flour, amaranth, buckwheat, spelt, barley, and teff flour are some of my preferences.
- If you have picky children, don’t tell them you have used something different in the recipe – they will not be able to taste the difference anyway and they will get the chia seed health benefits.
