Did you know you can replace flour with ground flax? It not only eliminates the need for flour, but also eggs and oil too. Flax also makes for a delicious way to eat more fibre each day since it has a nutty, grainy texture even though it is a seed. Plus, it’s a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and potassium. Just be sure you choose ground flax since whole flax can’t be absorbed by the body, and always store your flax in the fridge since the natural oils found in it can go rancid more quickly than regular nuts and seeds.
