Flax meal is known greatly for its high contents of omega-3 essential fatty acids, lignans, and fibre. If you're looking to add some great nutritional value to your food, this is an excellent option! Add it to pancakes, muffins, bread, cookies, and many other recipes for a boost in nutrition and a little bit of extra nutty flavour.
You can replace oil in a recipe with flax meal at a 3:1 ratio.
Flax meal can also be used as an egg replacement in your baking recipes. Use one tablespoon of flax meal and 3 tablespoons of liquid to replace each egg called for in the recipe.
