Flax seed is a great substitute for
eggs, oil, or flour
in many baked goods.
It’s heart healthy since it is high in omega-3’s.
So, I can eat a plateful, right?
I just made a batch of peanut butter cookies and substituted some of the flour with milled flax seed.
They turned out so tasty!
The flax gives it even more of a nutty flavor.
So, so, so what I was looking for.
Chewy on the inside and crumbly around the edges.
Oh, and a reeses cup on top (of course!).
is a healthier choice since our bodies have a hard time cracking into that hard little seed.
