Grind flaxseed in a mini food processor until a fine ground texture is produced (if you don’t already have ground flaxseed available).
Let this mixture sit for at least 5 minutes before whisking it briskly for about 2-3 minutes. Ready to use in your recipe!
You can use original flavored fortified plant-based milks, but the end product will be a little bit sweeter. This would be fine if you are making a baked or other sweet-tasting recipe. However, if you plan to cook a savory dish, it may be best to use unsweetened fortified plant-based milks for the most nutrition when making flax eggs.
Keep in mind that the longer you let the flax egg mixture sit, the more gluey and thick in consistency it becomes. Hence, if the flax egg mixture has been sitting for a while, you may need to adjust the volume of liquid added in your recipe to obtain the same desired texture and consistency in your final product.
