I use Chia seeds in my homemade granola, or sprinkle on my oatmeal. You can basically add them to any baked goods recipe. I can relate to SANVEAN83 - chia seeds, as well as ground flaxseeds always get caught in my teeth too! Thank goodness for dental floss!!!!!
This is a pretty tasty recipe (and I'm sure you can add as many chia seeds as you'd like): http://www.traderjoes.com/recipes/recipe .asp?rid=190
I also like sprinkling them on top of a toasted waffle with peanut butter spread on it.
..my only dislike about chia seeds is that they get all caught up in your teeth! =O

I don't have a specific recipe for them. I add them to just about everything, though. I find that they help to thicken soups and sauces.

I am new here and have been on a weight loss journey for about a year now, with only a 12 pound weight loss in the past year. Recently, a friend told me about chia seeds, not to lose weight, but for other health benefits such as bowel health, omega 3 intake and other things. I bought both milled chia seeds and raw chia seeds. I was wondering if anyone had any good uses or recipes involves chia seeds? So far I have been mixing them with greek yogurt, mixing in my morning protein shake, and I even made a chocolate chia pudding. I do have to say, I feel they fill me up quicker and curb my cravings.
Anyway, any recipes or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks for listening!
