Lol ;) ;D

Cookie, it certainly doesn't have to have chocolate on it. The original recipe doesn't. But I think it would go really nicely with the nuts in the slice, and dark chocolate is good for you anyway, right? :D

I made this today and was keen to try it. I really liked it   DH wasn't too keen but he likes things sweeter. I melted a small chocolate I bought in Shark Bay today and sort of drizzled it over it. I only had a plastic tub to put it in but it seems fine.
A nice healthy slice or truffle. I added milk instead of water to bring it all together. The chia seeds are quite crunchy in it.
Very tasty.

Thanks for your review Cookie :) A shame DH wasn't too keen but we can't win them all, can we? :-))

Sadly you are right Amy. Although he tucked into the leftovers today. Perhaps he had too much sweet stuff yesterday.
I didn't have a pretty dish to put the last piece on for the photo, so I put it on top of the bread machine loaf.

Just made this as I had some roasted almonds blitzed that I needed used.  I used them instead of the walnuts. :)
I decided to use melt some chocolate to put on top (instead of icing sugar). Will look forward to one after dinner with a cuppa....or 2.

I'm afraid I couldn't stop at one or even two. Very tasty.

Yes, I found it hard too Chookie, however I'd just eaten a rather large pizza so I guess my will power didn't have to work too hard ;D
I haven't given any to the kids yet - I actually forgot to mention that I added only 30gms of chia seeds as the taste can be quite strong.  I could really taste them in the first 1 or 2 bites but then all I could think of was how yummy it was.

I'm really excited as I'm on a low iodine diet as part of my treatment which makes so many foods off limits, however, I can eat everything in the list of ingredients! Yay! I am definitely going to try this today - I wonder if it would work as bliss balls. I'll see how the mixture feels... watch this space! Great recipe - looks healthy and delicious!

I did a couple of them as bliss balls before I popped them into my mouth. I loved the crunch of the chia. I didn't tell anyone what they had in them. After a few more DH decided that were ok after all.

I really MUST make this! It would be perfect for when I'm after something sweet. I like the idea of dark chocolate on top.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.
