Is flax meal mixed in with dry ingredients?

Was wondering what to do with the flax since it was not included in the instructions. Flax is not mixed with water to make egg substitute? Just added dry to dry mix?

Yes, it is just added to the dry ingredients

We made this today and it was so delicious! Thank you!

Just in time for the zucchini glut from the garden!
I’ll make lots of these and freeze for the winter.

Hi Jill, – I appreciate your help with new ideas and recipes, it really helps. This recipe looks so good, but my husband can’t have cocoa or carob. Can you think of any other suitable substitute please ?
Thank you very much.

You can just stick to my original zucchini bread recipe.

I made this today and it was delicious! It was even better with a little peanut butter. Thanks for the recipe!

Hi Jill,
This looks so yummy
Can you use almond instead of oatmeal flour for this recipe, as well for your other recipes which call for oat flour?

Jill Dalton July 8, 2023 - 2:42 pm

I’m not sure. I haven’t tried any other flours, sorry

Turned these into muffins (10 total), sprinkled raw chopped hazelnuts on top, then baked. Amazing!! Thank you!

Hi Jill. Making this today. Curious about the flax being added dry. I’m used to making a flax egg (flax and water and letting sit to gelatinous) and then adding to baked goods. Can you comment on the difference and results in both approaches?

When I watched the video, you had me with not having to squeeze out the water from the zucchini!! Lol.
This recipe is great. My 1st loaf turned out wonderfully. And I am making another one already. Love having healthy treats like these sliced in the freezer and ready to eat.

This recipe is absolutely delicious. I’ve made it 4 times so far this month. Going to make it again today! Thank you for the great recipes!!

Do you think I could throw the zucchini into the blender with the other ingredients instead of shredding it?

Jill Dalton August 19, 2023 - 10:06 am

It might work but it also might release a bit too much of its water and make the bread a bit too moist.
