Did You Know Series: 


.
Substituting Flax Seed for Fat

3 Tablespoons Flax Seed = 1 Tablespoon Margarine, butter or cooking oil.

Substitute for all or some of the fat depending on the preference. To substitute for all of the fat with flax seed, increase liquid by 75% as ground flax absorbs liquid. Note that baked goods brown quicker than normal.

.
Substituting Flax Seed for Eggs

1 Tablespoon of Flax Seed plus 2-3 tablespoons water equals one egg.

Substitute a 1:3 ratio of flax seed and water mixture for each egg in recipes. Allow to sit for several minutes together before adding to your recipe.  In some recipes, you can leave the ground flax in the blender and add the other wet ingredients to it, thus saving you the extra step of the bowl.
