I use them ground up when I make bread.
Flaxseeds have a nutty flavor and are excellent sprinkled on salads, cereals, and yogurt.They are a wonderful addition to baked goods, such as breads, muffins, waffles, hot cereals and pancakes. Stir 1 TBLS of ground flaxseed into your favorite fruit, vegetable juice, or milk.

My mom swears by them for lowering of cholesterol, she sprinkles a spoon on her cereal every morning. I like them in home baked bread, nice nutty flavor. I have read it is best to use them ground, since you get more from them that way, unless there is a reason you want them to pass thru digestion intact. They are small, dark seeds, sort of oval like sesame seeds but little more pointy if you can picture that. You can purchase in health food stores and I think some grocery stores sell the ground ones labeled "flax seed meal".

I put it in almost everything.
Meatloaf
Oatmeal
Any baked goods, I replace about 1/4 to 1/2 cup flour w/ ground flax.
Sprinkle on salads
I even sneak it in the kids cookies I bake.
hee hee.
It's cheapest for me sold in the bulk foods section as whole seeds.... then I grind them a bit at a time in a coffee grinder.... I keep the whole seeds in the freezer.
