Flaxseed Goo

The weirdest thing happens when flaxseeds get wet, they make the water turn into something like mucus. It has a super gross texture and it is nearly impossible to get rid of.  But I've heard that you can use ground flaxseeds mixed with water as an egg replacer in vegan baking, and soaking the whole seeds is supposed to make them easier to digest. But you have to admit, it's pretty gross.


  1. I too have heard of this but haven't yet tried it. On the simple healthy tasty blog she uses flax seed to make french toast, which I haven't dared try yet.

  2. I did try it once in muffins to replace the egg, but it was not very good and I don't really have any desire to try again. I can't imagine french toast with flax seed, that is too weird.
