I'd like to make some that I don't have to refrigerate. Haven't seen a good recipe online yet.

It's been about mid 70's, about 45f in the morning this week. It's supposed to be low 80's Sat & Sun.

Made pumpkin muffins again but added chia gel to make them more moist and nutritious. Topped with homemade whipped cream & was just like a nice pumpkin pie treat.

How much chia seeds did you add?

Made chia gel and added 1 tbsp to recipe

CHIA GEL

2 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 cup of liquid

In a bowl, add the seeds to the liquid, and whisk them in with a fork or whisk.
After a few minutes you will need to whisk the gel again to make sure  seeds
donít clump together in the bottom of your bowl. Leave to stand for 10 to 15 minutes.
This enables the seeds to absorb the liquid.  Two tablespoons of chia seeds to one cup of liquid makes a very thick gel.

Can anyone tell me where I might find sugar free chocolate made with sucralose (or other such sweetener) rather than sugar alcohols?  We have probably all experienced the effects of too much sugar alcohol.  Yuck.

I've gotten to where I make my own.    It's really hard to find some locally but you can find lots made with stevia online.  I haven't found any made with just sucralose by itself though.  Even the ones I make at home have a mix of sweeteners.  I just like the taste better.   As much as I love chocolate I just can't take the store bought stuff any more.  Seems like I am getting so much more sensitive to the sugar alcohols these days  ::)

Thanks for the info on chia gel, oOOSusieOOo. What else do you use the chia gel for?

anjelhands- If any recipe turns out too dry, add chia gel (about 1 tsp-1 tbsp). That helps moisten recipes. I've even added a little to meat recipes.

Umpa,

Is there a recipe for the chocolate bark in the bakery book?  If so, I will look it up.  If not, please share.  The kids have so much candy in the house, it is tempting to cheat (have not so far) and the Russell Stover's are delicious but troublesome in their own way.  Thanks.
