Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, almonds and salt in a large bowl.
  • Prepare the three 'eggs' and mix with both extracts. Beat, by hand, for about 15 seconds.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined. It will be a bit sticky.
  • Flour your hands and divide the dough in the bowl.
  • Pick up one half and shape into a long roll that is about 8" x 3" thick. Lay on the parchment paper.
  • Do the same with the other half and lay it next to the other roll with about 3" apart.
  • Flatten the rolls until they are about 3/4" thick.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, flip the pan and bake 10 to 15 minutes more until light golden brown.
  • Remove to a cooling rack and let them set about 10 minutes.
  • Place on a cutting board and cut across the log about 3/4" slices.
  • Place back on the parchment paper, cut sides down, and bake another 15 to 18 minutes until golden.
  • Remove from oven and let cool. You can even leave them overnight.
  • Pack in an airtight container.

Notes

A chia egg is actually made with chia seed meal/flour not the bare seed. The way you make meal/flour is by grinding the chia seed in a processor such as one for your coffee beans or a spice grinder. I use mine to strictly grind seeds so that I do not mix flavors. Grind until it is a fine meal. I do about 4 ounces at a time and keep it in a little freezer safe canning jar - in the freezer. When I need a Tablespoon or so it is all ready to go. One chia egg is 1 tablespoon chia seed meal and 3 tablespoons water. These will absolutely freeze but they keep at least 30 days in an airtight container. If you do freeze some - use a freezer bag and they will still be great for about 4 months.
