Bob's Red Mill: flaxseed meal.
Hi I'm Bob Moore from Bob's Red Mill and I'm here to tell you about whole grain flaxseed meal. The seeds of the flax plant may be small, but they are mighty. Just a few tablespoons provide an abundance of fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, B vitamins and powerful antioxidants. But these little seeds hold onto their nutrients with tenacity. For your body to gain access to the goodness within, all flax seeds much first be ground into flaxseed meal on one of my special mills. It's an age old process that preserves the natural nutrients and unlock the nourishment stored inside these previous, living seeds.
Flaxseed meal is a great addition to lots of different dishes. Add it to your smoothies or hot cereal to give your breakfast a nutritional boost. Or substitute flaxseed meal for eggs or oil in baked goods. One of my favorite things to use flax seed meal is in these flax crackers. They are a delightfully crunchy, healthy snack and the recipe is so simple.
Just mix 2 cups of flaxseed meal with 1 cup of water, a pinch of salt, and a dash of your favorite spices. Roll the dough into a thin sheet, cut into squares, and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. That's all there is to it! These crisp crackers are terrific with a dab of hummus or a slice of cheddar cheese. I like to top them with peanut butter for a satisfying afternoon snack. Doesn't that look good?
