Flax Seed Meal

Flax Seed Meal

In a package of Christmas gifts from my mom, I received some flax seed meal. I had never used it before, but I’ve since been adding some to our bread each time I make it and I like the slightly nutty flavor it has added. Flax seed is low in carbohydrates and high in fiber, anti-oxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids, and phytochemicals, so in addition to the nutty flavor, we’ve added nutrition too.

The bread I make uses 4 cups of whole wheat flour. I’ve been substituting 1/4 cup of flax seed meal for 1/4 cup of flour. The bread rises and bakes just as it does without the flax seed meal.

  1. I use it in banana bread, and it really compliments well.

    Hmmm…thanks for the tip, Willa. I’ll have to give it a try.
