Flaxseed Meal is a flour made from grinding the seeds of the flax plant. It’s a flour very rich in fat and fiber, making it a must-have in keto baking.
It’s easy to find in-store, but you can also make your own!
Is Flaxseed Keto-Friendly?
Flaxseed is a super seed for anyone on the keto diet. It’s high in fiber, high in fat, and low in net carbs.
Compared to other keto flours, it has 10 times fewer carbs than almond flour with only 1.9 grams of carbs per 100 grams
Because Flaxseed Meal is so high in fiber, it’s highly liquid absorbent.
So it can’t quite be used just like any other flour.

Dry Weather: if you make your flaxseed meal when the moisture is high, the flour will be sticky and mold can quickly develop in storage. Making it in dry conditions ensures a longer shelf life.
