Naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, keto and paleo, this homemade flaxseed meal is perfect for making banana flaxseed waffles, flax almond bread, making flax eggs as an egg substitute, or flaxseed breakfast porridge!
- 1 cup whole flax seeds (you can use golden or brown)
- Grind Flax Seeds: Place whole flax seeds in a high-speed blender and process for one minute, scraping down the sides as needed until you get a fine meal.
- Pass Through Sieve: Pass the flaxseed meal through a fine-mesh sieve to filter out any larger pieces. Return the larger pieces that did not pass through the sieve to the blender and process another time, before passing it through the sieve again.
- Store: Use flaxseed meal immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Equipment for Grinding Flaxseeds: If you do not have a high-speed blender, you can also use a food processor or a coffee grinder.
Grind As Needed: Since ground flaxseed meal can only last for 1 week after being ground, I highly suggest that you only grind the amount you need.
