Print the recipe page! chia real meat meatballs
These meatballs, made with real meat (as opposed to the wheat meat meatballs I tricked all my kids with) use ground chia seeds as a binder in place of eggs. No kidding! I was so excited to find out chia can do this! Due to their gelling properties when soaked, chia works as a substitute for eggs in all kinds of baking. (It also makes wonderful pudding, but we’ll get to that another day.) I’m quite smitten by these little chia seeds. They’re simply amazing! God truly thought of everything and gave them an extra handful of “nutrition” and “usefulness” when the plant gifts were handed out .
We’ll get to the recipe (which is also pretty great) in a minute, but first I have to pause for a moment to introduce you to these amazing little seeds.
