When you look at the texture of Apple Flax Breakfast Squares it’s hard to believe they’re not made with flour.  I usually use golden ground flaxseed when I make these but any ground flaxseed will work in this recipe.  Flaxseed is one of the richest plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

22 Comments on Apple Flax Breakfast Squares

  1. So glad you like them Thalia! I am always looking for ways to add more flaxseed to my diet and these breakfast squares are a delicious way to do that!

    • Hi Vidya – I would try omitting the eggs and replacing them with a flax egg substitute. To replace the 4 eggs in this recipe mix an additional 1/4 cup of ground flax with 3/4 cup water and let the mixture sit for 5 miutes to thicken before proceedig with the recipe. I haven’t try a flax egg substitute in this recipe but I use this method in other recipes and it works beautfully. Good luck and let me know how it turns out!

  2. Good morning,

    Can I substitute stevia semi-sweet chocolate chips in my recipe instead of walnuts, almonds or pecans?

    Thank you very much and have a nice day!

    • Hi Christine – I think that would work just fine and probably taste delicious! Let me know how they come out.

    • Hi Lorraine – I would stick with using all ground flaxseed. If you tried the recipe with half physllium fiber that would be 1 1/2 cups which is quite a lot. Most recipes that call for physllium fiber use much lesser amounts – usually in the tablespoons – so I probably wouldn’t try this.

    • Hi Kathleen – Yes, I think that would be a teriffic substitution. So, I’d leave in the applesauce and substitute about a cup of blueberries for the chopped apple. I bet frozen blues would work just fine too. Please let me know how they turn out. Blueberry and apple go well together so I’m guessing they’ll be delicious.

  3. I love this recipe I use it on Whole 30 just by substituting the vanilla with mashed banana, its so versatile I add whatever fruits and nuts I have! Its a staple in my freezer as a breakfast substitute eaten with nut butter !

    • Thanks so much for your feedback Lorraine! I love the mashed banana as a substitution. Definitely going to try that!
