Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl:flax cornbread, flaxseed cornbread, cornbread with flax, healthy cornbread

1 cup stone ground cornmeal (organic, otherwise it is likely genetically modified)
1 cup Flour (or 3/4 cup Wheat flour)
1/2 cup Flakes o' Gold or ground whole Flaxseed
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 Tablespoons Sugar (if you like sweeter corn bread, add more -up to 1/4 cup sugar)

Beat liquid ingredients together in a smaller mixing bowl:

1 Cup Buttermilk -(or 1 cup milk plus 1 Tablespoon Vinegar)flax cornbread, flaxseed cornbread, cornbread with flax, healthy cornbread
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter (optional if you are trying to make low fat cornbread with flax -just oil pan to prevent it from sticking).

Combine both dry and liquid ingredients until just mixed and smooth (a couple lumps are ok)

**Don't over mix. The baking powder and soda will begin working right away!

If you like a richer flax cornbread, add 1-2 tablespoons of oil to each pan of corn bread before you add the corn bread. The cornbread will have a more golden and crunchy outside.

For low fat flaxseed cornbread, just oil the pans to prevent the batter from sticking -then add the batter divided between the pans you are using.

The flaxseed cornbread will rise only slightly, so you want your pans filled about 2/3 -3/4 full.

For medium cast iron pans, about 20-25 mins or until lightly brown and knife or toothpick comes out clean.
For muffin pans about 15 mins.
For a larger pan 25-30 mins

-or until the cornbread with flax is golden brown on the top and knife or toothpick comes out clean!

"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!"

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."

"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."

"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
