Barefoot by the Sea: Lemon Chia Seed Bread

Lemon Chia Seed Bread

My friend from Healthy Appetities told me that she made a loaf of Lemon Chia Seed Bread from Bob's Red Mill and it sounded so good I had to try it myself.  It was deliciously lemony, moist and yummy.  So good that I've made two more loaves that we have enjoyed over the past few weeks! 
 
Lemon Chia Bread
Glaze
  • 2 Tb Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tb Lemon Juice
Directions
  1. Combine the chia seeds, lemon juice and milk. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Slowly add the chia seed mixture and blend well. Add the dry ingredients and blend until just combined. Scoop into a greased 8-inch loaf pan and bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes. When taken out of the oven, combine the sugar and lemon juice for the glaze and pour evenly over the top. Slice and serve when cooled slightly. Makes 12 servings.
On a side note, the last time I made it, I skipped the glaze - it's still quite tasty and good!  Read more about the benefits of Chia Seeds here!
