Will a coffee grinder work to grind up chia seeds to use as an egg replacer?

Summer 2013 We both have added back a little soy which is near unavoidable & we are doing okay with that small amount.

LOL! Well, I found a way to make do until.......

I put the chia seeds into a sandwich ziplock, put a paper towel underneath as well as one on top & took the hammer, sat down on the kitchen floor & pounded away! LOL! It worked but I don't look forward to doing it on a regular basis.

P.S. You have to make sure all the air is out of the baggie.

What about adding warm water and letting them sit and then food processing them? That's what I did the one time I used them as an egg replacer. I since decided I do not like the gelatinous mess it makes....but soaking them first worked. If your recipe calls for liquid, you could use that liquid. They soak up a lot. :)

This place we're renting the kitchen is so small that I don't want to even bring in a food processor eatmeat. I'm just going to pick up a little coffee grinder & see what happens.

I was very happy though with how the egg yolk-less Belgian Waffles turned out though.Posted Image

Oh, well, I just thought it might work. I use one of those teeny weeny ones that are only good for chopping garlic! Hey! Maybe a mortar and pestle? haha! Let's bring back the old tools! Isn't that what they used before food processors were invented? I guess if all else fails, you know the hammer and ziplock works! Hey! I can use that to flatten some chicken breasts huh?! I've been wanting a meat pounder but maybe you just invented one for me! :)

Yup. that'll work!

You know what else a hammer is good for? You know how when you go to hem jeans one of the side seams is so thick & then you're turning it under twice which makes it a monster? Take the jeans outside to a concrete surface & use your trusty hammer to pound that super thick turned under seam into a manageable, something you can work with thickness.Posted Image

Nutribullet

http://www.nutribullet.com/

Don't buy it here! Bed, Bath & Beyond, $80 + tax to your door. Anything over $50,
shipping is free. Don't like it? Send it back. Trust me, you will like this!
Easy to clean, rinse well & go, uses a SMALL amount of product, best gadget I
have ever owned and I have them all :)

This dumb thing has CHANGED my life! It's NOT like a blender drink, that's for
sure.

This may not sound so nice but my 350 lb daughter just went for blood work, time
to renew the birth control, or she would never go to a doctor. They always look
her up & down, hum...all the things that could be wrong?! It's what they always
think about us fatties, I just got the same treatment myself! Anyway, the blood
work: We are Paleo as much as we can, but we do cheat with rice. We eat meat like
nobody! I was so worried what these tests were going to revel! I was the one who
was gonna "get it", I do the cooking :(

PERFECT blood work, low everything, no sign of diabetes, no high cholesterol, (boy,
do we eat bacon!) her BP is low as well. The doctor asked her, "What do you eat"?
Well, my mom has been studying and she does the cooking. Rachel cannot eat gluten(no hand lotion either!)
soy, dairy, I bet there are more but these are the triggers. SO, she told this very
open-minded MD about her Nutribullet. That doc actually called her and said she
loved the thing! I KNEW she would go out & buy one. :) I even own a Vitamix,
this little bullet can grind the heck out of chia, flax & hemp! Runs circles around
the Vitamix when it come to grinding seeds. I also do millet, quinoa, among others.

Cheers! Alice
