NOTES

Adjust milk as per your desired consistency. You may need 1/3 -1/2 cup.

Try to use homemade flaxmeal (ground flaxseeds) as much as possible than store-bought stuff. There is significant difference in terms of quality and taste.

2 heaped tbsp whole flaxseeds yields about 4 tbsp of ground flaxseeds.

Grind small batch at one time and store in freezer in a sealed container, as these seeds are more prone to rancidity.

You could swap any plant-based milk or dairy milk for almond milk.

You could swap regular brown flaxmeal for golden flaxmeal.
