Notes

*If you do not have ground chia seeds, you can grind whole seeds using a coffee grinder.  Be sure to grind the chia seeds then measure 1/4 cup afterwards.  Ground flax should work in place of ground chia seeds.

**This recipe makes 8 bars but you can easily double it, adding the layers to an 8" x 8" pan and make 16 bars.
