The Cook & Him
have created these indulgent but protein–packed bites to mark our launch of the first British chia
, grown by Peter and Andrew Fairs at Great Tey in Essex. The tiny oil-rich seeds of Salvia hispanica were a staple food in Aztec cultures, alongside beans and corn, and are rich in protein, fibre and Omega-3 fatty acids. These protein bites are vegan and naturally gluten-free.
