Featured Recipe: Flaxseed buns

Even I can bake these! They make an awesome replacement for bread and are extremely filling. What’s more flaxseeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and can help with digestion and balancing hormones.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 45mins


  • 150 g flaxseeds, ground
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (you can also use apple cider vinegar)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted (you can also use melted coconut oil)
  • 3 tablespoons water


  1. Preheat the oven to fan 180ºC/350ºF/Gas Mark 6 and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl using a fork. Beat in the remaining ingredients and leave the batter to rest for 5 minutes to thicken up.
  3. Take 4-5 tablespoons of batter and shape into a bun with your hands. Place on the prepared baking and use wet hands to shape/smooth the top and to press down lightly so that the bun is 5mm-1cm thick. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

  4. Bake in the oven for 20-22 minutes until the buns spring back to touch.
  5. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, then slice in half and fill.


Try them post workout with eggs for a great re-fuel! You can make the recipe more economical if you buy whole linseeds and blast them a blender to make the flax.
