  • Blend beans first if ingredients are not mixing well. Add water a little at a time to help the blender work smoothly.
  • If you don’t have a blender, you can combine ingredients in a bowl. First mash the beans with a rolling pin, fork, or other kitchen tool.
  • Bulk containers of flaxseed are usually available at grocery or warehouse stores, which costs less than smaller containers. Flaxseed can be stored for a long time. Add it to oatmeal, smoothies, stews, and baked goods, and many other recipes for added fiber and Omega-3s.
