Superfood Flax Meal

The following recipe and photography was provided courtesy of Heinen’s Club Fx Recipe Developer and Food Photographer, Allianna Moximchalk from Allianna’s Kitchen and was inspired by Heinen’s Chief Dietitian, Melanie Jatsek, RD,LD.

This superfood breakfast bowl or snack is loaded with fiber and omega-3 fats and literally takes 5 minutes to make!

During my busy weeks, I prepare all of the dry ingredients beforehand and store them to a microwave-safe container so all I need to do is add the wet ingredients, microwave and add my toppings!

What Is Flax Meal?
Flax meal is ground flax seeds. Flax seeds are high in fiber and omega-3 fats and are easier to digest when they are ground, which is why flax meal is such a great superfood! Flax can also help bind things together, making it a great egg replacement in some recipes.

By Heinen's Grocery Store
In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
