Product Description

Flaxseed definitely is one of the healthiest types of seeds. They are literally packed with nutrients that are easy to absorb and process. As they rarely cause an allergic reaction and any negative side effects from eating this food are extremely rare, it’s safe to say that flax seeds will make a great addition to any diet.

People have discovered the many benefits of these seeds thousands years ago, and they have been cultivated in many countries since B.C. They can be added to a variety of dishes and are valued for their oil.

Health Benefits

Flax seeds are extremely good for your health due to a variety of reasons that include:

  • They are an excellent source of omega 3 fats.
    Omega 3 fatty acids are extremely important for your health. They have an uncanny ability to fight and prevent inflammation. Considering the fact that the vast majority of diseases is either caused or aggravated by inflammation, increasing your intake of these essential for your overall wellbeing. A single spoonful of oil derived from these seeds will provide you with 8 g of omega 3 fats, which makes flax seeds one of the richest plant sources of this particular group of fatty acids.
  • Flaxseed contains lignans.
    Lignans are a type of phytoestrogens that are believed to reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer. In addition, foods rich in phytoestrogens can be used to treat some hormonal disorders.
  • They are rich in B vitamins.
    Flax seeds contain large amounts of all major B-complex vitamins. These elements play an extremely important part in your metabolism and affect every process within your body. Deficiency in certain groups of B vitamins increases the risk of birth defects, neurological disorders, and beri-beri disease.
  • They are packed with dietary fiber.
    One of the main reasons why flax seeds are an essential part of almost every weight loss program is the large amount of dietary fiber they contain. Eating them helps improve your digestion and cleanse your intestines from toxins.

Spooky No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Spooky No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil or Earth Balance Vegan Spread (could use butter but it won’t be dairy free or vegan)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cup granulated coconut palm sugar (or other granulated sweetener)
  • 1/2 cup dairy free milk (I used unsweetened vanilla Almond milk)
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter (or peanut butter or other nut butter)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • generous pinch of sea salt, optional
  • 3-3 1/2 cup gluten free oats** (I used about 3 1/4 cups)
  • 2 Tbsp flaxseed meal, optional for added nutrition


For decorating and shaping (optional)

  • cookie cutters of your choice lightly greased with coconut oil
  • coconut butter (or your favorite recipe for a glaze) – I used about 3 Tbsp
  • black sesame seeds (for the eyes)


Directions

  • Add first 4 ingredients into a 4 qt. saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high and hold one minute stirring often.
  • Remove from heat. Add sunflower seed butter (or other nut or peanut butter) to hot mixture and stir until melted.
  • Add vanilla and sea salt and stir well.
  • Mix in the oats and flaxseed meal, then stir well.
  • Place cookie cutters on parchment paper and press mixture evenly into cookie cutters (make sure to press down to get into small creases) OR drop by tablespoons onto parchment paper. Let cool until set.
  • Carefully remove cookies from cookie cutters after completely cool. If decorating, melt coconut butter until it reaches a liquid state. I put the whole jar in simmering water for a while and stirred occasionally and then scooped about 3 Tbsp out. Spoon liquid coconut butter into a small plastic sandwich bag and cut a small corner off to create a tip. Pipe over cookies to decorate and use tweezers (or tiny fingers) to place sesame seed “eyes” or sprinkle over the cut-outs.


Happy Halloween!

 

Quinoa Oatmeal Bake With Apricots

Quinoa Oatmeal Bake With Apricots

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa – http://bit.ly/1P3f4nj
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax seed & ½ cup water (3 flax eggs) – http://bit.ly/1N9uZmg
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy/almond milk
  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots – http://bit.ly/20WjbtU


Instructions

  1. If you don’t have some cooked quinoa laying around, cook up a batch (a little under a cup of dry quinoa) and let it cool in the fridge.
  2. Make 3 flax eggs by combining the ground flaxseed with water and letting it sit for 15 minutes until you get an eggy consistency.
  3. Chop up your favorite dried fruit (I was craving apricots), and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a large bowl, combine everything except for a small handful of the dried fruit. Give everything a big mix, especially if your almond butter isn’t spreadable (trick: heat it up in the microwave first!).
  5. Grease your baking pan with olive oil and dump the contents of the bowl into the pan. Top with your reserved dried fruit. I used a loaf pan (filled halfway) so that I would get plenty of crusty sides and a deeper volume for the oatmeal bake.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, checking starting around 20 minutes to ensure the middle is no longer ‘jiggly’ and that a crust has formed on top.

If you are using a shallower pan, reduce the baking time slightly and anticipate a thinner baked oatmeal. You could also easily double this recipe for a 9×9 or 8×8 pan, increasing the baking time. After letting the oatmeal sit and cool for a few minutes, slice into it and top with maple syrup, extra cinnamon, or yogurt.

Enjoy it!

 

Broccoli fritters

Broccoli fritters

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head broccoli florets (about 3 cups processed)
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup Chickpea Flour – http://bit.ly/1A2TUEw
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal – http://bit.ly/1N9uZmg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt – http://bit.ly/1L7fLMO
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or more for cooking


Directions:

Place broccoli florets, onion, cilantro and garlic in batches in a food processor and process until crumbly (looks like rice grains). Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in chickpea flour, flaxseed meal, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Mix well and squeeze together like you are forming a dough. Heat oil on medium in a large skillet. Form into patties about 1/4 cup, place fritters in the skillet, reduce heat to low and cook fritters on each side for about 4 minutes until golden brown. These are lightly fried and not deep fried. What I do is cover the skillet after I turn them to make sure the fritters are well cooked in the middle. Delicious served with guacamole.

Makes 10 small bars or balls. Gluten free, vegan, low fat, high raw, sugar free.

Ingredients:


Instructions:

Get out a baking dish and line it with baking paper.

Add in your oats, chia seeds and flaxseed and mix until your oats are almost completely ground.
Add in your almond butter, mixing until the mixture starts to clump into a ball.
If needed, add in your water drop by drop until your mix forms a ball and everything is incorporated.

Once chilled you can either roll the chilled mixture into balls or slice into bars.
