FLAX SUBSTITUTIONS
EGGS - 1 tbsp of ground Omega Golden Flax Seed plus 3 tbsp of water = 1 egg.
 
Substitute 1 1:3 ratio of ground flax seed and water mixture for each egg in recipes for pancakes, muffins and cookies.  Allow to sit for several minutes together before adding to your recipe.
 
BUTTER / OIL - 3 tbsp ground Omega Golden Flax Seed = 1 tbsp margarine, butter or cooking oil
 
Substitute for all or some of the fat depending on the recipe.  To substitute for all of the fat, increase liquid by 75% as ground flax absorbs liquid.  Baked goods brown more quickly.
