For more than 6,000 years flax seeds have been eaten as food and very well could have been the world’s first cultivated superfood! Flaxseeds, or linseeds, are small gold and brown seeds that are the richest sources of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids in the world! They can be used as an egg substitute because of the gelatinous and binding properties. You can also soak them and use the gel for a face mask!
Mix one tablespoon ground flaxseed meal with three teaspoons of water. Let the mixture sit in your fridge for 15 minutes to thicken. If you can wait 30 minutes, you'll have an even thicker egg substitute.
Use in baking, breakfast dishes, or however you choose!
