In case you live on Mars or are a first time reader (welcome by the way), you should know that I love to add some sort of nutritional boost to recipes such as ground flax seed, whole grains or my newest love, Chia seeds.

Why Chia Seeds you ask? What the heck are they good for? Well, Chia seeds are rich in Omega 3’s, antioxidants and fiber and our bodies love those things. I thought about adding them into my favorite smoothies but since I know they can get a bit glutinous, I decided to add them as dry seeds (some folks soak them first) into the cake recipe.

You are intrigued aren’t you? Want to try some for yourself? Okay then, you can use your $50 Bob’s Mill Gift Card to order some Chia Seeds and whatever else you adore from their awesome selection of products (get the whole grain pancake mix, seriously).

Hi ! My favorite product is the Almond Meal Flour, I like the nutty flavor and texture it gives to my baked goods :)

My favorite Bob’s Red Mill product is the steel cut oats! Also, I think there’s a minor typo in the recipe above. For the chia seeds, should it say 1/4 cup? I assume so, but just wanted to make sure. The cake looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it!

I love Bob’s Red Mill corn grits polenta. It’s the best, nice and yellow.

My favorite Bob’s product is the bean soup mix. I’d love the gift cert so I can try some others!

Awesome giveaway – and cake! Love chia seeds too. I guess my favorite products are the GF flours (I keep them on hand for my sister when she visits).

My favorite Bob’s Red Mill product that I’ve tried so far is the gluten-free all purpose flour. As a baker, I’m getting more and more requests for gluten-free sweet treats & Bob’s gf flour makes fabulous desserts! You would never know they were gluten free.

Bonnie February 24, 2012 at 12:35 pm

And now having just googled chia seeds (I have been hearing about them, didn’t really know much) I am motivated to get myself some – who couldn’t use more immune boosting?!

Tamra February 24, 2012 at 12:44 pm

My favorite product is their 10 grain pancake mix!

I love the gluten-free chocolate cake mix :-)

My favorite product is their polenta (but I’d love it if they offered parboiled polenta–much better than the instant polenta some other companies sell).

I love the variety of gluten free products they have, especially the oats and baking mixes.

Jenn February 24, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Recently went gluten-free, but this looks like something tasty to make for family, for sure! Though, I suspect I could wing it with the alternative flours I received from my mom for Christmas (a great big box of Bob’s Tapioca Flour, White Rice Flour, and All-Purpose Gluten Free Baking Mix). Haven’t tried them out yet, so maybe this is the time!

I do love the Bob’s Red Mill steel cut oats as an alternative to normal oatmeal. I was totally bummed to know I couldn’t have regular rolled oats anymore.

Thanks for posting about the content on FB, I follow you there, but sometimes forget to come here!

Kate February 24, 2012 at 8:02 pm

My fave thus far is Organic, Unbleached, Unbromated White Flour – I’m just learning to bake bread, and this stuff is great! I also use the Vital Wheat Gluten regularly, as it makes a fabulous seitan. :-)
