    Ideal for binding ingredients in baked goods and providing a subtle nutty flavor.
  • **Chia Seed + Water:**
    Mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 1/3 cup of water.
    Let it rest until it forms a gel-like substance.

    Use 1/2 mashed ripe banana to add moisture, sweetness, and a subtle banana flavor to baked goods like muffins and pancakes.
