Flax Sandwich Buns


 


Living somewhat secluded from quality bakeries and grocery marts lately I've been missing the amazing Amoroso hoagie rolls I got all the time when I lived in Philly. Over the years its become somewhat of a habit for me to just look at calorie content at the bread at the market because I figure if its going to be blah and stale I may as well try to avoid cankles. So I thought about possibly mixing the idea of great hoagie or hamburger rolls with maybe a little added health. I utilize flaxseed meal and flax seeds to these buns and they came out wonderful, slightly nutty in flavor with a soft texture perfect for cold cuts or even burgers.

So, I'm used to using flaxseed, but not flaxseed meal.  Can I convert the former to the latter?

Yes. Flaxseed meal is simply ground flax seeds.

Grind flaxseeds in a coffee or seed grinder in order to enhance their digestibility and therefore their nutritional value..."
