    Has anyone tried making these with egg instead of the flax? Would love to try them but I don’t have any flax right now.

      Hi Melanie – you most definitely can use 1 egg instead of the flaxseed! 🙂

      Hi Amy – you can use 2 tablespoons of chia seeds or 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk fiber in its place. They would still be tasty if you omitted, but they would not hold together quite as well.
