Today has not been without its complications, but no day can be said to be entirely bad when it has featured cheesecake. ;)

That looks lovely, but its caloric content is alarmingly high—around 1000 calories per half ramekin dressed! I think I might go with a silken-tofu recipe instead of a nut-based one were I to prepare a vegan dessert.

Oh, I spread this out in 12 muffin tins. That puts it down to 290 calories for one muffin-sized cheesecake, which is much more appropriate.

Excellent idea. I was thinking about making them button sized. :P They look fantastic, but I want variety!

Do you, by chance, have a tried and true recipe for chia seed snack/energy bars?

You know, I don't! I remember reading something about chia seeds being better nutritionally if they've bloomed in liquid, so I never eat them dry.

Do you eat dried chia seeds? How do you do it?

My standard hiking bars are a combo of nuts, sugar, and fiber, so they usually start with me heating up a nut butter, adding a bit of honey, and stirring in oats. Then I mix in things like cocoa nibs or dried fruit or other nuts.

I think that soaked seeds and nuts are felt to be easier to digest and to absorb nutrition from, but for chia seeds, blooming them also makes them more mucilagenous, which makes them better able to hold together the components of a recipe.

I eat them dry in salads. :)
