Raw Chia Cereal For Baby


Mix 1 oz milled chia seed to 8 oz water, refrigerate overnight and then for up to 2 weeks. Add this nutritious seed gel to baby's cereal for raw goodness!

In her book, she recommends replacing one egg with a mixture of two tablespoons of ground chia seed powder with 1/3 cup water or nut milk that has been left to sit for five to 10 minutes. (She notes that this mixture is an excellent binder, but unlike eggs, it will not help a recipe rise.)
