Linseed Wafers

27/01/2013 in Biscuits

A couple of months ago I wrote a new recipe for Baked Salmon (click here for recipe) which included 1 tablespoon of flaxseed or otherwise known as linseed.  What a valuable little seed with loads of health benefits such as being the richest source of omega 3 essential fatty acids and believe it or not, even more so than fish.  Linseed also improves the quality of hair, nails, and skin.  It helps to regulate body weight, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, and prevents arthritis and cancers (click here for source of information).  With that said, I decided to use up my stash from the Salmon recipe and make little wafer biscuits which are sweet and crunchy but also giving you the goodness of the linseeds.  Not too many though because they’re full of sugar!

You’ll need:
1.5 cups of Jungle Oats
1/2 cup Linseed
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of plain flour
165g melted butter
1 large egg (beaten)
5ml vanilla essence

Combine dry ingredients
Combine wet ingredients and add to dry ingredients

Spoon walnut size balls of mixture onto a baking sheet which is lined with baking paper. Spread quite far apart as the mixture spreads very easily.
Bake at 170 degrees for 10 minutes.
