They actually gel with water added to them (very quickly) forming an almost egg white-like consistency. So you can add them to things like puddings or even use them as an egg substitute, tossing them into quick breads. For raw applications, try them in cereals, creamy desserts, etc. They are really little, so just snacking on them can be hard! I have a couple recipes using chia seeds posted on my website below, but since I am new to the forums, I can't post a direct link yet :)
