They contain Alpha-linoenic acid - a healthy omega3 fatty acid, Calcium - which controls blood sugar levels and maintains bowel health, Iron - which is responsible for carrying oxygen to muscles and organs, Magnesium - which supports a healthy immune system and maintains normal muscle function, Protein - the body's main building material and crucial for cell repair. All in one tiny little seed!

To serve spoon into bowls or as a desert, use pretty glasses and top with berries and sliced almonds. Serves 2 - 4
For variety, try 1/4 teaspoon almond extract or 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.
