Chia seeds pack a potent dose of omega-3s, fiber, and protein. If you prefer a nuttier flavor and more crumbly consistency, swap in flaxseed meal.

  • Press oat mixture firmly into prepared pan. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack. (Mixture crisps as it cools.)

  • Release oat mixture from pan. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

*

To increase coconut flavor, add 1/8 teaspoon coconut extract.

Tips

Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and protein. Or opt for flaxseed meal (ground flaxseed), which gives the crisps a nuttier flavor and more crumbly texture.
