Once a week, Liam stays out at work on call and those are usually the days/evenings you’ll catch me cooking ridiculous amounts of food and floating round the flat in a blanket cape. The night my fruity chia puffs were born, I’d already perfected vegan grilled cheese, made almost 30 chocolate fudge power balls (another recipe you’ll be getting at some point) and watched the entire first season of Love on Netflix.
At some point came the 8pm sweet tooth and I was more than a little stuck for ideas. I wanted junk food.
Fortunately this week I’d stocked up on fruit and it also happened to be the week I decided to try my hand with the Jus-Rol puff pastry. I’ve tried to make puff pastry once in my entire life – it went badly, didn’t puff, and was a disaster I have no intention of trying again. Fortunately Jus-Rol’s puff pastry is vegan friendly meaning I’m not forced to live a life without my favourite carbs.
Over the course of the last few days, I’ve made these with strawberries, blueberries, apples, and some frozen summer fruits I had to hand.
These little beauties are quick, simple to make and tasty to boot. The recipe is customisable for pretty much any fruit you can whip up chia jam for.
They’re delicious just-warm with a coffee for breakfast, and perfect for a quick on the go treat to throw in your bag (though they could get messy if you manage to crush them in there). They’re also just one of my favourite sweet treats and I really will have to calm down making them soon, before I end up the size of a house.
If you have half an hour and some left over fruit that needs used up – hop into the kitchen and make these! Then, enjoy.
Would you fancy giving these a go?
