I have a pound of flax seeds (not ground) that I bought last week because they were cheap!<br><br><br><br>
Any suggestions what I could do with them?

Hmm... I could add ground to breads and other baked goods (I don't eat cereal).<br><br><br><br>
I guess there's not a whole lot of uses for whole unground flax seeds?

I put ground flax seed in my breakfast shake everymorning. I bought a coffee grinder just for this purpose. I buy them in bulk and keep them in the freezer. I grind enough for a week at a time and keep that in the freezer too. I also use 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed mixed with 1/4 cup water to replace each egg in cookies.

It's not that I don't eat healthy. I do... actually I make almost everything I eat from scratch including bread!<br><br><br><br>
It's that I really am not into cereal. Or breakfast. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Putting flax seed in your bread is a good idea, just grind them first as the whole seeds have a tendency to pass through you without digesting. Coffee grinders are not expensive. my daughter got hers at a thrift store. they are also good for grinding other seeds, nuts and spices

yeah those mini grinders are like 10 bucks brand new and don't take up much cupboard space<br><br><br><br>
i bought some sunflower flax bread today. mmmm. i think the flax seeds are mostly ground with a few whole ones on the outside for looks.<br><br><br><br>
for a while i'd been eating oatmeal for breakfast and putting a tablespoon or so of ground seeds in it. i think it actually tastes better like that.

I made flax bread today and it is YUMMY! I didn't have a grinder so I crushed it as much as I could with a mortar & pestle.<br><br><br><br>
I need to get a mini-grinder I think. Would be great to buy whole coffee beans and grind "on demand".
