I use it in smoothies, on cereal, in muffins, in cakes, and also to coat fish, poultry, etc, when frying or baking. I also use chopped nuts and other seeds in the same ways.

I like to add ground flax seed to smoothies, protein shakes and yogurt (love the nutty flavor). I also make my own California rolls and use flax seed instead of toasted sesame seeds to roll the outside of the California rolls in.

I grind it up and mix it with eggs, a bit of baking powder, and not much else (sometimes yogurt or some sort of moisture), and nuke it for a bread replacer.

Many low carb sites have the "flax bread" for microwave recipe.
There's also a muffin recipe quite similar.

No flour in either.

I add it to greek yogurt, mostly. Occasionally I'll put some in an almond milk smoothie with banana and other fruits, but I usually use chia seeds in those.

I add it to pancakes and waffles. It can also be used as an egg replacer in baked goods!

What do you add your flax seed to? I add it to my oatmeal and am looking for more ideas!
