It was a Sunday afternoon, I was longing for something dessert-like, something kind of healthy and something easy to make with the ingredients that I had on hand. I looked around the kitchen, my gaze landed on the basket of apples that our backyard apple tree had so kindly provided, and our Golden Valley Flax. With those two ingredients in mind, I delved into my supply of cookbooks. After a quick search, I decided to make Apple Pudding…however I tweaked the recipe just a little, to create Apple-Flax Pudding because I wanted to take advantage of the health benefits of flaxseed by incorporating our North Dakota flaxseed.
- 6 apples peeled and sliced. (I used 10 smaller apples from our apple tree)
- 1 cup sugar (you may substitute ¾ cup honey for the sugar)
- 2 Tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons ground Golden Valley Flax
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
Slice apples into baking dish. Mix other ingredients well and pour over apples. Bake at 350 degrees, for 30 minutes or until brown.
We like it topped with Greek Yogurt and sprinkled with ground flaxseed. This will help you include the benefits of flaxseed into your family’s diet. The multitude of flaxseed health benefits can be found by cooking with flaxseed, either ground flaxseed or whole flaxseed. Our family has the award for the best North Dakota flaxseed and it can be found at www.goldenvalleyflax.com
