You may have heard that omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory… this includes in the gut as well! Chia seeds are a wonderful plant source of omega-3s, which can soothe inflammation in your digestive tract. Furthermore, chia seeds are rich in protein and fiber, as an added benefit to your gut health.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup coconut flour (more if needed, to bind)

Your choice of sweet or savory toppings:

  • Suggested sweet - berries, coconut yogurt, crushed walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup
  • Suggested savory - Lightly sautéed mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and spinach with a little garlic and freshly torn basil, topped with diced avocado.

METHOD

  1. Blend eggs, chia and coconut flour until a well combined batter is formed. 
  2. Heat a frying pan to medium heat and coat with your choice of oil, if needed.
  3. Pour “pancake-sized” dollops of mixture into the pan. These will form flatbreads and will not rise like pancakes do. 
  4. Flip after a couple of minutes, or until the base is starting to lightly brown.
  5. Serve with your choice of toppings.
