Alternative Binder for Meatballs

I am making lentil meatballs for an event and I am looking for an alternative to eggs as a binder (soy is also out as I am allergic).

Finely ground (uncooked) rice works well. Clean out a coffee grinder by grinding up some dry oatmeal, discard it, then grind the rice. It's a good thickener for soups, too.

Flax egg should work (1tbsp of flax meal + 2.5 tbsp of water, let sit for ~5min to thicken = 1 egg).

How about some oatmeal that has been soaked in milk or cream for 30 minutes?
