After reading on the back of the package that it could be used in place of some of the flour of your baked goods, I tried it when baking muffins. The boys never noticed. I let Little Guy in on my secret and he loved the idea of hiding nutrition.
We even gave these bread machine cinnamon rolls a try we found at the Ameriflax website.

Little Guy got into the game. The last time we made lasagna he got the idea of "hiding" spinach in the sauce. Oh you should have seen the pure giddiness on his face when we finished eating supper and he was able to tell is Dad and big brother that they had eaten spinach --- which they hate!
