Cinnamon Chia Seed Coffee Cake, plus GRAND Social No. 145 link party

Cinnamon Chia Seed Coffee Cake

I mentioned in this post last week that I'm trying to incorporate ever-awesome and oh-so-healthy chia seeds into my diet on a daily basis. So far I've added them to yogurt and pudding, and I've sprinkled them on the tortilla before adding cheese when making quesadillas. And yesterday I created a coffee cake that features the seeds—and is fabulously yummy.

Check out my tasty creation (just click the picture for the recipe):

Cinnamon Chia Seed Coffee Cake

Jim and I ate it for breakfast yesterday (with fresh pineapple), and we both loved it. Sure, it's cake, and I wouldn't go so far as to say it's healthy. I would, though, say it makes for a healthier breakfast than pancakes or waffles. Well, unless chia seeds are added to the batter for either.

Hmmm... chia seed pancakes? I just may have to try that!

If you try my Cinnamon Chia Seed Coffee Cake, I'd love to hear what you think. And if you have ideas for incorporating chia seeds into your diet, do share!

GRAND Social No. 145 link party for grandparents

Speaking of sharing, let's share some links (and read some links, too). Thank you for joining me for the 145th GRAND Social. Do note that with this new linky format, once you add your link, you can hover over it with your mouse—or any of the linky photos—and share on social networks. More bang for your buck as well as a great way to share the links of others that you think your friends and followers would appreciate! Cheers!

grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="http://grandmasbriefs.squarespace.com/storage/GRANDsocialbutton.jpg" alt="Grandma’sBriefs.com" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
