Hi, Wendy - I eat a flaxseed porridge recipe every day in the winter, except
when I fancy pancakes : ) I grind enough flaxseed to get a couple of
tablespoonfuls, sometimes with a few walnuts or a brazil nut thrown in the
grinder, then mix with a beaten egg. It fries to a lovely crisp outside and
nutty inside, perfect for serving with low-carb maple syrup. Hmmm... think
I'll have some tomorrow... The same recipe with hot water instead of egg is
the porridge. I can make up a week's worth at a time, store it in the
fridge, and be sure of it not going off.

Googling the alt.support.diet.low-carb group would also be fruitful. I got
some flax seed bread recipes from there, and also a muffin recipe which I
appear to have misfiled somewhere - but I prefer almond flour muffins, so I
don't make the flax seed variety any more.

Nicky.

When I use it, I use it to replace the eggs and/or fat. Not flour. It
seems to work best in things that would normally have a nutty taste. I
don't have any actual recipes. I was using it for things I bake for Angela
since she can't have eggs. However, due to the laxative effect, it is
something I can't use very often.

This puzzles me - it had the opposite effect on me when I started eating it.
Now it just keeps me regular, and I make sure I drink enough alongside it.

Huh. My daughter and I both found it to be a laxative. We both tend
towards having problems that way though. Never constipation.
