Put the flax powder in a bowl, add the water, lightly stir, then let sit for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator, then it's ready to use.
When stirred, it is viscous and sticky like eggs.
These are the flax seeds before they are pulverized. Since they are hard, they can be digested more easily when powdered. You could also add them to smoothies.
I used these flax seeds to make carrot cake. (See Recipe ID: 2193846)
When I used them in cinnamon waffles, they turned out nice and fluffy. See "cranberry_26"'s Recipe ID: 371866.
Although it may be obvious, you cannot make omelettes using flax seeds!
Story Behind this Recipe
Even though they are high in cholesterol, I love to make and eat sweets. Since I feel better eating sweets that don't have any eggs in them, I tried out this vegan egg substitute.
I recommend preparing this the night before you plan to bake. You can use it as a substitute for eggs in recipes for desserts. Use the ratio of 1 part flax to 3 parts water to replace every additional egg. I recommend the use of whole wheat flour when baking sweet breads, since this flax mixture won't turn your bread yellow.
