Flax Mix (Flaxseed)

An egg substitute-best replacing 1 egg rather than 2.Baked good will be heavier and denser because it is a binder and moisturizer rather than a leavening agent.

Ingredients:

  • 3 teaspoons flaxseed or flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup boiling water
Directions:
  1. Grind seeds into fine powder with coffee grinder or use flaxseed meal.
  2. Whisk into boiling water, remove from heat, and let stand for 5 minutes.
*1/4 cup flax mix equals 1 large egg.
