Flax Eggs (or Chia Eggs)

HOW TO MAKE FLAX EGGS (OR CHIA EGGS)

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.

After 15 minutes, the result should be a sticky egg-like substitute.
