  • Let the mixture set for a few minutes; you will see that the mixture will get quite thick.
  • Heat your skillet to medium heat and add a few drops of oil to it. Use a cloth or paper towel to wipe the bottom of the pan with a fine layer of oil.
  • Pour in some of your flaxseed and egg mixture into the pan and use a spatula to help spread the mixture, covering the pan with a thin layer.
