How do I use CanMar's Flax For Nutrition as a substitute for eggs or butter in my baking?
For eggs: Substitute ground Roasted Flax For Nutrition and water mixture for eggs in recipes such as pancakes, muffins and cookies. Mix 1 tbsp ground flax plus 3 tbsp water for every egg being substituted - let sit for several minutes then add to your recipe. For fat: Substitute Flax For Nutrition for fat in your recipes using 3 tbsp ground flaxseed for each 1 tbsp of margarine, butter or cooking oil. Flax For Nutrition can be substituted for all or some of the fat, depending on the recipe. If you substitute all of the fat in the recipe with flax, you will need to increase your liquid by 75% of the amount of ground flax you are adding because the flaxseed will absorb moisture. Baking with CanMar's Flax For Nutrition as a fat substitute will cause baked goods to brown more quickly.
