  1. Mix all ingredients except the bread in a large, shallow bowl. Place in the fridge to activate for 10-20 minutes.


  2. Preheat griddle to medium heat and grease with olive oil. 

  3. Make a jam sandwich by buttering two slices of bread with chia jam then placing them together. 

  4. Dip and soak both sides of your jam sandwich in the batter for about 20 seconds on each side. If your bread is dry, leave it in a little longer. If you're using sandwich bread, it should only need 25-30 seconds total to soak.
