Chia seeds. Where do chia seeds come from? What are chia seed health benefits? Are there calories in chia seeds? Those funny looking little black seeds that everyone is always raving about, you know the ones famous for the Chia Pet® creatures that gained their popularity in the 80's? (Yep, I'm an 80's kid).
Yep, those chia seeds.
Only today we are not planning on growing any little creatures with these seeds. We're going to cover their wonderful benefits and how they help us easily add our daily elderberry syrup to our diet without having to work too hard at it. After all Sambucus Nigra (or black elderberry) is super popular right now with covid. Not to mention the concerns over cytokine storms and elderberry.
Let's dig in, shall we?

Growing up on Sunday's for both my Farmer and I meant Sunday breakfast was a little different from the rest of the week. While I was use to pancakes, my Farmer loved his mom's coffee cake.
Before realizing I had a sugar allergy I remember going to his parents for Sunday breakfast and having his mom's coffee cake. It really was a favorite.
Then we dived into the world of whole foods and that coffee cake just wasn't a treat that I could have any more.
One recent Sunday I asked the Farmer, "What would you like for breakfast?" He replied, "Coffee Cake!" with a twinkle in his eye, knowing well that there was usually so much sugar in coffee cake that I would never make it.
I'm always up for a good challenge though!

Nothing says October like pumpkin spice, am I right?
Did you know that the spices in pumpkin pie spice are the perfect blend of medicinal goodness for fall? Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves. Not only are most of these herbs anti-viral and anti-bacterial, but they are also considered catalysts or movers in the herbal medicine world. They get the blood a-moving, along with the lymph. They warm you up and keep things flowing. They are the movers and the shakers of the spice world.
So, for all of you "pumpkin spice everything" fans, you now have another reason to love on your pumpkin spice. The recipe we are sharing today is no different and in addition to pumpkin spice, we are adding the very loved flavor of chai. The two together are a dangerous combo and then add them to this real, whole food, muffin recipe and you have some fabulous fall deliciousness!

Can you guess what the top two scone flavors are amongst tea drinkers?
As a business owner that makes and blends tea for a living, one could can imagine I'm in quite a few different tea groups. When I polled all of these groups to see what their favorite treats were, to eat with their tea, they came back with a two resounding answers.
Lavender Lemon Scones and Orange Cranberry Scones.
We decided we had to take these traditional and popular scone flavors into our farm kitchen and give them a little real, whole food make over. The result was fabulous! So fabulous we decided we would share it!

Mother's Day is not far off and the mad dash to find just what mom has been hoping for has started.
As a mom myself, I'd be happy to help you out, since you asked ;) Just some quiet time, with loved ones, good food and a good cuppa tea. With lots of sunshine. Flowers and chocolate never hurt either.
That's where these lavender lemon scones come in.

Twice a year there are ideal opportunities for a proper afternoon tea (not that any time of year isn't a good time!) Easter and Mother's Day are the largest holidays celebrated with traditional tea time foods. Springy, light and delicate flavors are a must on the menu.
If y'all have been hanging around this blog for any amount of time you know that seasonal eats are my thing. I...
