Lemon and Chia Seed Loaf

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve had a great day.

Today’s post is a healthy one and a great snack when feeling peckish. I got the recipe from here a website dedicated to showing the nutrition of chia seeds with a range of recipes, the only difference is that I didn’t include the lemon curd. I found this recipe because I was trying to find something I could bake using chia seeds as I’d recently brought a packet with the intention of making chia pudding but the texture and taste wasn’t for me, a cake was my next option. Chia seeds are a great superfood known for being a rich source of fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and protein which is great if you are vegan/vegetarian because they are a great nutritious plant source. Overall, I really liked this cake because it wasn’t too sweet and I was able to appreciate the refreshing flavour of the lemon zest.
