Hello Sherbear,
I would be happy to have some of your recipes with flaxseed. I just purchased some and all I do is grind them up and put them in my cereal. Ymmmm, that is good.
Will look forward to some.
Have a great Day!

I would love a bread recipe using milled flax. or any kind of recipe using it for that matter.
I read it was very stable, ie doesn't need to be refrigerated like some things do and you can substitute it for part of the dry ingregients but do not ask me the ratio. I think it was 1: 1 but not too much
His Will be done

My recipe was featured! Get yours featured too!

I found this on a website:

Adapt your existing recipes substituting flax for the oil or shortening specified in a recipe. If a recipe calls for 1/3 cup of oil, replace with 1 cup of ground flaxseed - a 3:1 substitution ratio. As an alternative, the flour specified in a recipe can be reduced by 25% and replaced with ground flax seed.Baked goods tend to brown more quickly if flaxseed is substituted in the recipe so you will need to keep a close eye on the baking time until you have tried a particular recipe once or twice.

I just found today a small Flax seed recipe booklet that came with our flaxseed. I tried the Flax Seed Bread and it was delicious.
Here is the recipe: I did not have whole wheat flour so I just used white.
3 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 tablespoons fast rising instant yeast or regular
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup soy milk (use thicker consistency like Eden Original) or use 2% milk
2 tablespoons oil

Set aside 1 cup flour from total amount. Mix remaining flour, whole-wheat flour, milled flaxseed, yeast, brown sugar and salt in a large bowl.
Heat water, soy milk and oil until hot to touch, 125-130 degrees. Stir hot liquids into dry mixture. Mix in enough reserved flour to make a soft dough that does not stick to the bowl.
Turn out onto floured board and knead until smooth and elastic about 8 minutes. Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
Cut dough in half and shape into loaves. Place in 2 greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 40-50 minutes.
Bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes. Remove form pans and cool.
This makes two small loaves. This is very delicious eaten as is or toasted.
I always butter the outside of the bread.
I didn't use sugar, my husband is diabetic so used Splenda.
Have a great Day!

Flax seed that is not ground up is not digestible so you do not get the benefit of the flax oil - it just passes thru. I appreciate seeing the recipes because flax is so good for you.

Flax Pancakes

Pancakes are a snap to make using Flax Seed or Oil

Makes a dozen pancakes.
1/4 cup flax with 1 cup wheat mixed and ground.(you could substitute a tablespoon of flax oil.) (If you don't have a wheat grinder you could blend 1/4 cup flax with 1 1/2 cups water then mix it with 1 1/2 cups flour.)
3 T powdered milk (or substitute milk for the water)
2 T sugar(makes the pancakes brown nicey - omit if you don't eat
2 T Baking Powder
1/2 t salt
2 Eggs (it really needs the second egg to make the pancakes light
and fluffy.) Directions: Turn on electric frying pan to 325 degrees F. Combine all dry ingredients and briefly mix. Add water a bit at a time until you have a thick batter. Add the two eggs (and flax oil if you're not using flax seed) and mix them in, then add more water until your have he desired consistency. ( Try making the batter a bit thicker than you would for white flor pancakes.) Fry them up! Hint Try peanut butter on them instead of syrup. I love them this way and they are a complete protein with the peanut butter.
