Think of a quick, yet simple, bite size snack that is easy to make, delicious and of course minimally processed.
Within these wraps, you have a bit of texture and chewiness from the added chia seed paste. Chia seeds = 12 grams of carbohydrates per ounce (28g), you might think is pretty high, but 11 of these grams are fiber.
Therefore making chia seeds a good low carb friendly food.
The high fiber content of chia seeds allows for the expansion of 11–12 times their weight in water, turning into a gel-like consistency. Therefore they are filling and also good for our gut bacteria thanks to the fiber content.
Fiber is incredibly important. As it resists human digestion, the fiber ends up in your colon, where it feeds friendly gut bacteria, leading to various health benefits.

Yield: 4 Bites
1 Cinnamon coconut wrap @cocobynuco
1 Tbsp chia seeds
4 Tbsp coconut almond milk creamer
1 Serving Nuzest Rich Chocolate Clean Lean Protein
1 Tsp Tahini paste
1 Tbsp dehydrated blueberries
1 Whole fresh ripe fig
2 Tbsp ice cold water
1 Tsp monk fruit syrup
Start by soaking the chia seeds in the coconut almond cream mix. Set aside, pulse the rest of the ingredients for the filling together until a think paste consistency is reached. Cut out 4 x circles from the coconut wrap (sheet).
Then add the chia seed mixture to the rest of the filling mixture, mix well and start filling your wraps by measuring a teaspoon size per circle. Wipe around the circle of the wraps with a little bit of tahini paste as this will act like a sealant when you close the wraps. Pop them in the fridge for 1 hour before serving, option to drizzle some raw dark chocolate on top.
