Add an omega-3 boost to a variety of dishes with this surprisingly versatile ingredient. Ground flaxseeds mix with several foods unnoticed. Use 1 or 2 tablespoons in oatmeal, yogurt, a smoothie, cold cereal, sprinkled over a sandwich, or mixed in a salad. Ground flaxseeds mix with batters and dough and hardly influence the consistency. Several crackers, cookies, and muffin recipes use flaxseeds as their main flavor if you wish to base a dish around it. Vegan bakers often substitute a flaxseed mixture for eggs in baking recipes like pancakes, muffins, and cookies. These baked goods are slightly gummier and chewier than those that use eggs, and the volume is decreased. It can also be added to crusts for meats or your favorite baking recipes.
