Chia seeds have been a superfood for a few years now. So why not just bake cookies from the healthy seeds? Here are two delicious recipe suggestions.You can even bake cookies with chia seeds
Sweets and cookies are not usually healthy foods. Chia cookies are an exception to this. The seeds of the South American chia plant are full of vitamins, fiber and proteins and provide valuable omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (see chia seeds nutritional values - that's in the superfood). Because of this, they are particularly popular with vegetarians and vegans, who often use them to make chia pudding. But it is also worthwhile for everyone else to try chia seeds, and if they are served as delicious cookies, then even more so.
There are now many recipes for chia biscuits that promise pleasure for everyone, whether vegan or not, and are quick and easy to make. These include, for example, these two recipe variants.
❖ Recipe No. 1 - simple chia cookies
- 200 g of flour
- 80 g of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar
- 100 g margarine
Knead a shortcrust pastry from all the ingredients, roll it out on a work surface dusted with flour, about 3 to 4 mm thick, cut out with ramekins and bake in a preheated oven at 160 ° C for approx. 10 minutes light yellow.
❖ Recipe No. 2 - Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut
- 70 g tender oatmeal
- 2 bananas
- 40 g dark chocolate
- 1 - 2 tablespoons of raisins

First of all, you need to make the chia gel. Mix the chia seeds with water or milk or milk substitute in a ratio of 1: 6 (i.e. 3 tablespoons of chia seeds with 18 tablespoons of liquid) and then chill for two hours until a kind of gel forms.
Crush the bananas with a fork and add the chopped chocolate, then all the remaining ingredients. Place the mixture with a spoon on a sheet of baking paper and bake in a preheated oven at 160 ° C for approx. 15 minutes.
