Chia Egg Substitute

Chia Egg SubstituteI have been experimenting more and more with recipes that require eggs, and seeing as I try to avoid animal products, using chia paste or chia eggs are a perfect substitution. Most recipes that require eggs are simply using them as a binding agent, and do not have much bearing on the final outcome of the recipe. Chia seeds have a wonderful gelatinous property and when you grind them up and mix them with warm water, forms a great paste. Voila!

And not to mention chia seeds are just packed with so much nutrition:

  • They are very rich in omega-3 fatty acids-even more so than flax seeds.
  • They are rich in antioxidants.
  • One serving size includes 18 percent of recommended daily calcium and four grams of protein.
  • They are low in cholesterol and sodium.
  • They arepacked with fiber, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, manganese, copper, iron,  niacin, and zinc.

Have you tried chia eggs before?
