To serve chilled:
The flaxseed meal will gel (bloom) further overnight. Stir and thin it with more milk until your desired consistency. Add any preferred toppings. Enjoy !
To serve hot and immediately:
You can either reheat it over low heat in a small saucepan on a stovetop (stir and thin with more milk) or cook it without soaking overnight. Stir frequently until the flaxseed meal becomes more plump and silky texture.
The Paleo Oatmeal formula is about 3 to 4 tbsp ground flaxseed meal/serving x about 3 times of liquid. For example if use ¼ cup (4 tbsp) ground flaxseed meal, stir/mix with ¾-1 cup canned light coconut milk and soak overnight in the fridge. If use other dairy-free milk from a carton (thinner texture) use ¾ cup milk instead.For potential leftovers, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.The nutrition label is calculated without toppings, nuts, and any added sweetener. Ground flaxseed once opened has shorter shelf life. In general it will keep for about 90 days. It’s best to keep them refrigerated in an opaque container/glass jar. Some people also store them in the freezer for longer shelf life. Also pay attention to the manufacturer's storage recommendations.
