A no-brain recipe using 2 main ingredients:
Peel and cut the mango. Puree with a hand blender. Add chia seeds and puree again. Let the mixture sit for at least half an hour in the fridge so that chia seeds get to absorb the mango’s juice.
Yes, it’s normal for the mixture to look like vomit (or like a thick snot if you prefer). I’m really bad at selling you my recipes, am I? ;)
Spread on a non-stick baking sheet or in a large silicon mold.
Bake for 15 minutes at a relatively low temperature. (I used 220 degrees Celsius, but I use a small electric oven. You wanna choose a temperature that will slowly dehydrate the mixture.)
What are the nutrition facts if you eat all the crackers you’ve made (around 8 pieces)? The nutrition facts of 100 g mango (60 kcal, 0.8 g protein, 15 g carbs, 14 g sugar, 0.4 g fat, 1.6 g fiber) + the nutrition facts of 28g chia seeds (138 kcal, 4.7 g protein, 12 g carbs, 0 g sugar, 9 g fat, 10 g fiber) = 198 kcal, 5.6 g protein, 27 g carbs, 14 g sugar, 9.4 g fat, 11.6 g fiber.
They taste very sweet, and the texture is kind of crunchy (chia seeds) and chewy (cooked mango) at the same time. A good alternative to the overpriced “all natural” bars that are too rich in date paste and almonds.
