  1. Mix the seeds into the water in a small cup.  The transformation to chia gel will occur faster if you use boiling water, but this is not necessary.

  2. Let sit for a few minutes. With boiling water, it takes about 5 minutes.

  3. Use the resulting gel in your baking recipe as a substitute for 1 egg. No need to try and sieve out the seeds. If you need to substitute 2 or more eggs, simply increase the recipe as needed.

  4. Whip the chia gel to get an even lighter and fluffier end result!
