Have you ever baked with Flax seed Meal. It is very healthy for you! Full of omega-3's and fiber. Plus you can use it for an egg substitute. How cool is that?
As it says on the package, use one tablespoon flax seed meal and 3 tablespoons water. Mix in a bowl, and let sit for a bit. Use as a substitute for an egg in any baking recipe.
We have been using flax seed meal for a while. Here are some cookies we made with it. We used no eggs in this recipe. Sometimes I'll use 1/2 eggs and 1/2 flax seed meal- to up the fiber in a recipe. I do this often with muffins.
Don't the cookies look good? I'll tell you ...they were good. :)
Here is the recipe I used:
In the cookies above, I used craisins, pecans, and a little chocolate chips- although they were good with just the craisins and pecans.
****You can buy it at almost any food or health food store- I think I got mine at Sunflower Market. I keep it in the fridge, and use it for all kinds of stuff- but I love that you can use it for baking as an egg substitute.
