Here’s a great way to save some money and get some added Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Next time you’re baking up something delicious, try substituting ground flax seed for your oil or your eggs (don’t do both).
Tip: Don’t use flax as a substitute for baked goods that rely heavily on eggs or butter for their structure, or have a high fat or sugar ratio. For example, you wouldn’t want to do this with brownies. You could of course add flax for added nutrients, but don’t use it as a substitute for eggs or oils.
