coconut chocolate chip chia bundt

The holidays are in full swing, which for many (myself included) means indulging in the delicious baked goods that we would normally politely pass on.  I mean hey, most of us join the gym on January 2 and while we may lose our resolve by January 28, you're sure to burn off the calories in this treat. And if you're not going to join the gym, Greek yogurt and chia seeds are two major ingredients that happen to be exceedingly healthy. :)

Yield: One bundt
295 calories per piece, if cut into 16 pieces
Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes

2½ cups all-purpose flour 
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes

1. In your stand mixer bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and eggs.

2. Except for the chocolate chips and coconut flakes, combine the remaining ingredients in your stand mixer bowl, and stir until very well blended.

3. Pour half of the batter, which will be VERY THICK, into a parchment lined bundt pan. Evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips and coconut flakes over the batter, and then pour over the remaining batter.

5. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

6. Turn the bundt out onto a wire rack to cool.
