I am always trying to get more omega 3’s into our meals and found this great post by one of my favorite cooks, Megan over at Detoxinista. She solves the problem again!
Flax “eggs” are an easy substitute in most recipes calling for just one or two eggs. They’re a great option for vegans and those allergic to chicken eggs.
To prepare a flax egg, simply grind some flax seeds, or chia seeds, in a coffee grinder.
Note: Freshly ground flax seeds work best, over the store-bought milled variety.
HOW TO MAKE FLAX EGGS (OR CHIA EGGS)
- 1 tablespoon ground flax or chia seeds
- 3 tablespoons water
- Whisk together the ground flax and/or chia seeds and water until well combined, then place in the fridge to set for 15 minutes.
- Use as you would an egg in many of your favorite baking recipes.
