Personal Experiment with Flax Seed…. and cake batter cookies

Well, there’s a first time for everything…. and last night I had two.  One involved cauliflower mac & cheese that I screwed up by not adding milk…. major sad face!  On the other hand, I had a major win last night in adding some flax-seed to a batch of cookies…. Yummy!

I started with a very tasty recipe I pilfered off of Tastespotting.

CAKE BATTER COOKIES

  • 1, 18.25 oz boxed cake mix
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Mix dry.  Mix wet.  Combine, and stir in chips.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min.  Cool on pan for five before removing.

For my flax addition, I decided to sub 1 Tablespoon milled flaxseed plus 3 Tablespoons water for one of the eggs.  I added the flax to the dry, and the water to the wet.  Results were tasty.  I’m not sure that I save much of anything, and figured it was a fairly low risk….. but I have less vegetable oil in my house than I used to, and I’m glad for that… getting closer to being rid of it entirely!

In other news…. yesterday marked ten wonderful marital months for Matt & me!  I’m starting to feel like we’re learning how to do the marriage thing better than when we started!  With that:  I may or may not blog again til Monday, so have a great weekend!
