More and more lately I ask that bake from flax meal. Therefore, this is my recipe, so to speak, on the topic of the day: pumpkin muffins from flax meal.
If you ever tried baked with the addition of flax meal, then you know that it is different moist texture, and it also has a feature for a long time does not grow stale (due to moisture absorption properties of flax meal).
Peculiar smell flour does not (rather, it is perfect "set off" those flavors that prevail in baking, be it chocolate, berry and spicy notes).
Speaking about the benefits of a batch of flax meal, not to mention that it is rich in dietary fiber (up to 30%), polyunsaturated fatty acids (Omega-3 and Omega-6), vegetable protein (up to 50%), vitamins B1, B2, B6 , folic
acid antioxidants (lignans), as well as necessary for the health
trace elements (potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, etc.).
Flax Flour first normalizes the gastrointestinal tract. This property is associated with its high content in it of dietary fiber, stimulate peristalsis and mucilage (slime linen), which improve the condition of the intestinal microflora.
So afraid of baking flax meal is not necessary - on the contrary, if possible add on 1-2 tablespoons flax meal in familiar dishes (pancakes, casseroles, muffins), it is very, very useful!
And pumpkin muffins from flax meal - a convenient option for a snack (and breakfast or snack)!
