How To Make a Flaxseed “Egg”

“Your greatest health benefit is from ground flaxseeds.”
– David W. Grotto, RD, LDN  (101 Foods That Could Save Your Life!)


Ground Flaxseeds


Ground flaxseeds are a wonderful addition to breads, muffins, pancakes, cookies, and even some cakes. As well as being a great binder, it’s a nutritional powerhouse, and adds a pleasant earthy flavour.


Things to know…

-Ground flaxseeds will bring a “healthy” taste and texture to your baked good. Use your judgement to decide if the flavour will work with your recipe.

-Don’t try to use if the recipe calls for more than 2 eggs.

-Flaxseed eggs do not work if the recipe is egg dominant. Examples: omelettes, angel food cakes, soufflés


Flaxseed "Egg"


Flaxseed “Egg”

1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
3 tbsp Hot Tap Water

Combine the ground flaxseed and water, and let stand for about 5 minutes. Beat the mixture until it is thick and gelatinous (those old fashioned egg beaters are really good for this, and can be found for cheap in thrift stores).

Makes the equivalent of 1 egg.
