This recipe is an adapted version of Tania Hubbard's original Chocolate Chia Cake. This one has a little Changing Habits twist.

Yields8 ServingsPrep Time10 minsCook Time40 minsTotal Time50 minsDifficultyBeginner
 4 tbsp chia seeds
 1 cup of filtered water
 1 large banana
 1 cup hazelnut meal or almond meal
 125g coconut oil
 2 tsps homemade Homemade Vanilla Essence
 4 eggs
 1 tsp bicarb
 Low sugar alternative: Omit the rapadura sugar if you need to, and add in 1 1/2 cups of grated green apple, 10 drops of liquid stevia and 1 tbsp of Changing Habits Cinnamon
For a delicious ginger and cinnamon spice...
 1/2 - 3/4 tbsp Changing Habits Ginger Powder (taste the mix and add more if you like!)
Chocolate mousse
1

Preheat the oven for 180 degrees Celsius.

2

Soak chia seeds in 1 cup of water until all water is absorbed.

3

While they are soaking, blend the cacao melts till fine, then add the banana to be blended as well (or you can mash the banana by hand). If you have a large blender, you can keep adding all the ingredients into the blender, or transfer the ingredients into a large bowl.

4

Combine all ingredients and blend or hand mix until well combined.

5

Line the cake tin with extra coconut oil or butter to prevent it from sticking, and pour the mix in. Bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes.

6

Take out of the oven and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, smother with the icing/mousse and enjoy like this, or serve with seasonal fruit and dusted with extra cinnamon.

Yum!
