Delicious Chia Choc Orange Slice is one that will have you thinking Jaffa lollies with a healthier twist.
This slice is a treat for kid’s lunch boxes or afternoon snacks too. The next time you are at the shops, grab a chocolate cake mix, chia seeds and oranges and you’re almost there! The rest of the ingredients are most likely already in your fridge and pantry.
If you haven’t already discovered chia seeds then you are in for a treat! Chia seeds are the latest food to join the superfood category (move over quinoa). They are packed with antioxidants, nutrients, fibre, protein and omega 3 and so easy to add to any baked good without your kids even knowing they are eating something healthy.
