I know you can ground them up and sprinkle them in things, but what other ways do you all use them?? I bought some from my food co-op and it's a 5lb bag!! So I need some ideas--TIA

I'm sooo unclear about whether ground seeds can be heated or not. Some say they need to stay cold, some say they can be heated to baking temperatures, some say they're okay even at very high temperatures- so I want to know what other people are doing too!

I use mine in oatmeal, in smoothies, and on the Bob's Red Mill ground flaxseed pkg., there is am awesmoe recipie for muffins that has no oil or butter. Even my anti-health food father loves the muffins, but be aware, they do make you a bit gassy. :LOL<br><br>
Anyway, I also mix some into pancake or waffle batter.<br>
HTH!!

I add them to ds' cookies. I usually make cookies with honey or sucanat and chocked full of good stuff. Like right now it's coconut macaroons with chopped pumpkin seeds. Before it was a walnut bar with blackstrap molasses. But ds will only consume them in cookies.<br><br>
I've read that baking flax seeds was the only "good" way to heat them. But I've also read people writing to the contrary here. Oh well. Ds just won't eat them in cereal, or if he notices them at all, so what can I do?

I put them smoothies, in yogurt, in oatmeal and on salad. I also bake them in breads and cookies.
