These Cake Batter Chia Pods make for a great healthy gluten-free and vegan snack, breakfast, or even dessert option.
Why Chia Pods are Great
Chia seeds are packed full of complete plant-based protein. This means that the protein found in chia seeds contains all of the essential amino acids. This is amazing because finding complete plant-based proteins can be hard.
Making chia seed puddings (or chia pods) can be an easy way to get in some extra protein during the day. Not only that but it’s also an amazing way to give your body some probably much-needed fiber. (Just make sure you drink enough water when you eat them. Remember, when you increase your fiber intake you have to increase your water intake.)
These birthday cake chia pods are gluten-free and vegan.
They make for a fun and delicious snack, breakfast, or dessert. I love throwing them in my bag in the morning and enjoying them for breakfast when I get to school!
About the Cake Batter Chia Pod Ingredients
This recipe used Color Kitchen Food’s sprinkles and food dye. Use of the dye is completely optional and is just for aesthetic purposes. This post is not sponsored (though it does contain Amazon affiliate links), I just love using Color Kitchen Food coloring and sprinkles because I know they are safe for me. Their dyes are gluten-free and all natural, something I value.
The cashew butter and lemon juice in this recipe help develop that cake batter flavor that you know and love.
