I want to replace the 1/3 cup oil with chia seed, with the chia wet enough to become gelatinous.

Has anyone tried something similar? This is for Thanksgiving dinner with my omnivorous family and I wouldn't want to produce a vegan cornbread that sucks. Because then next time they'll say, "Oh, it's vegan? No thanks, I don't like vegan food."

I would just omit the olive oil totally and add more broth if needed, or find another recipe that's oil free. I can't see chia seeds working well here to replace the oil with.

Why do you want to replace the oil if you're bringing it to a holiday party?

I usually replace oil with an equal quantity of applesauce in cornbread, and it works fine. I couldn't tell whether it works with chia gel, I haven't heard of that before.
