Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

If you use the King Arthur Flour web site, they sell chia seeds. I have them already so will make this soon. I think I might use it only 1 TBS at a time on some greek yogurt, a little high in calories for this WW. Submitted by:

Very tasty recipe! While it isn't any lower fat or calories than the one I had been using, it is a nice change of taste. Submitted by:

This sounds delicious, but please do your homework (using reliable online sources) on chia seeds and coconut oil before you add them to your diet in larger amounts. Coconut oil is high in saturated fat and the health claims related to chia seeds haven't been fully substantiated. Submitted by:

This is crazy for a healthy snack. 1/4 cup is almost 200 calories. I won't be making it. Submitted by:

It looks delicious, but the bowl they're showing has like 8 servings (1600 calories) in it. Serving size is 1/4 cup - about a small handful. I can't waste 200 calories on 1 or 2 bites of food. :( Submitted by:

This is a delicious recipe.
As a dietitian it's a myth I try to dispel about coconut oil being healthy (despite being plant based, it is a saturated fat) And you already get so much healthy fat in monounaturated form from the nuts and seeds in this recipe.

While extremely flavorful, 11g of fat in a 1/4c. serving is not what I'd call healthy. And for those of us who are diabetic the carbs are a little excessive (more than twice what is allowed for a snack - 15g). As long as you keep these facts in mind...it definitely tastes good. Submitted by:

We love this recipe. Because we need to avoid sugars due to cancer and other health problems, I used 1/4 cup maple syrup. It was still too sweet. I will try less next time. We also did not add dried cocnut and dried berries. We use fresh or frozen berries when it is time to eat. Submitted by:

Chia seeds can be ordered through Swanson's Vitamins or some place like that. Coconut oil can be found at health food stores if you can't find it at the grocery store. I know the Food lion used to carry it but they got rid of most of their organic foods because they weren't selling too good I suppo Submitted by:

This is amazing! I made some substitutions based on ingredients on hand including coconut butter for the coconut oil. I also baked it on top of a sheet of parchment paper which worked great. I ended up with 248 calories per half cup, definitely worth it! Submitted by:

Sounds wonderful! Calories: 197 per 1/4 cup is a little pricey but it probably has enough fiber to keep you from getting hungry so okay for breakfast. Submitted by:
