What is Mila?

Mila is an organically grown, non-genetically modified blend of chia seed that is cold pressed and sliced to make it more bio-available.

It is RAW, GLUTEN FREE, AND VEGAN, perfect for cooking and baking.

It is super high in OMEGA 3s – equal to  fish oil pills per serving.

A single serving also has FIVE GRAMS OF FIBER, more antioxidants than blueberries, more iron than spinach and many more benefits.

This little seed has anti-inflammatory properties, is excellent for brain function, energy, elimination, sleep and the best part?  It’s a FOOD! AND there is an awesome business it revolves around.

_________________________________

By using a boxed brownie mix, these can be thrown together in less than ten minutes before baking!  Rolling them into balls does add a bit of time but it’s kind of fun to get into the spirit of the holiday season.

And the best thing about these is they are vegan because the Mila acts as the egg in this recipe and by using applesauce they are actually light – low in calories, fat and NO cholesterol.

Have a HEALTHY and happy holiday season!
