Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds

  • 12Servings


  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • 1 cup unbleached white all-purpose flour

  • 1 Tbs. baking powder

  • ¾ tsp. sea salt

  • ¾ cup chia seeds

  • ¼ cup sesame seeds

  • 7 Tbs. coconut oil, chilled

  • ¾ cup organic soy milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line half-sheet tray with parchment paper. Sift flours, baking powder, and salt in medium- sized bowl. Whisk to combine. Add chia seeds and sesame seeds. Cut coconut oil into flour mixture until it is crumbly and coated in flour. (Crumbles should be like coarse bread crumbs.) Pour in soy milk, and gently mix with rubber spatula until just combined, being careful to not overmix.
  2. Transfer dough to lightly floured table and gently roll out to shape of rectangle, about ¼-inch thick. With long edge facing you, fold in both ends to meet in middle. Fold dough forward in half, and very gently roll together to ¾ inch.
  3. Cut biscuits with lightly floured cookie cutter or sharp knife, and transfer to sheet tray. Bake 6 minutes, and rotate pan in oven to ensure even browning. Continue baking another 10 minutes, or until golden brown on top and slightly firm to touch. Transfer to rack, and cool.

Sunflower Seed Butter recipe.

Sunflower Seed Butter

The heat from the food processor brings out the natural oils from the sunflower seeds, so there’s no need to add any oil. Blending the seeds into a paste can take a while, so I suggest giving your food processor a break about halfway through so it doesn’t burn out.
