Substitute Flax Seed with Ground Flax Seed (in Pumpkin Granola recipe)??

MsJunsu | Dec 3, 2011 11:33 AM

After acquiring all the materials to finally make Pumpkin Spice Granola, I realized the two bags of flax seed I have in the fridge are fine-milled ground flax seed (whereas the recipe calls for whole flax seeds). I need 1 cup of flax seeds (to be combined with 4 cups rolled oats among many other ingredients).. Is it possible to substitute the flax seeds with ground flax seeds? if so, what would be an appropriate conversion rate? Or would using ground flax seeds throw the moisture-texture-whatever ratio off completely?
