7 Flax Recipes to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Flaxseed for dessert? Because our milled flaxseed is so soft and smooth it blends seamlessly into recipes that require a smooth and consistent texture. There is nothing gritty or rough about this flaxseed!

Flaxseed is an incredibly versatile ingredient. It is popular in smoothies, oatmeal, and muffins, but there is actually much more you can do with it.

You can use flaxseed in your favorite dessert recipes – including cookies, cakes, brownies, and more. (Try these Vanilla Lemon Cupcakes for a simple recipe from the box or this Chocolate Flaxseed Cake for an easy one bowl, no mess recipe).

The sweet treats listed below are all created by registered dietitian nutritionists and they all include ground flaxseed for a nutritious boost.
