I had toasted a half for breakfast this morning. Do ya suppose it was cause of heating it? I also had sprayed the glass grap it. I DO know all the good benefits of flax, I eat it every day in my yogurt. A wonderful food!! Love the recipe. Let us know about the 1/2 and 1/2 with almond meal. Must have missed your post Betty. Will give it a try tonight. Have been gone all darn day!!

Jewel-
I made one for lunch to eat with some leftover HB patties that I had in the frig, I used 2T almond flour and 2T flaxseed meal and it was a lot less greasy, but that ups the carb count to 3.4

BettyR- a million thanks for this recipe. I used it and absolutely love it. The second time I did not put any butter in it and then sliced and toasted it. Reminded me of Ezekial bread. That will be our new breakfast toast.
Thanks again.

Adillenal-
Your welcome.
I don't know what Ezekial bread is but I'll give it a try without the butter and see how I like it.

Thanks,
Betty

So did you use the original recipe with just the flaxmeal or using some almond flour??

edited to say, I tried it wo the butter and all flaxmeal. Cut it and toasted it and it was ok too. Think I'll go and try it with half almond flour next.
Sure LOVE this recipe. So many more possible things to eat now.

Julie - I used the original recipe without the butter. 4 T of ground flaxseed, one egg, salt and 1/2 t baking powder. I have a little 4x4 corning ware dish that I cooked it in and it comes out square. Just fits in the toaster perfectly. I try to eat flaxseed everyday so this is an easy way to do it.

I'm so glad you tried that for me, without the butter. I tried it too and it came out great. Less fat is best for me. I get enough fat in other things. Thanks adillenal.

I made this last night using 1 Tbsp butter, 2 Tbsp flaxmeal and 2 Tbsp almond flour (plus the egg, baking pdr and 1/2 tsp onion pdr). Came out great! Thanks for this easy recipe!

I think I like it best with the 2 TB flax and 2 TB almond flour and maybe a 1 TS of butter. Sure have been experimenting with this. Love it, simple, very little carbs and it's excellent toasted and good for us!!!

Made it with the almond flour and flax but I like the all flaxseed no butter best. Too eggy? How with only one egg? Cannot even taste the egg. Of course I eat a lot of eggs so that is a flavor that I am used to

I made it for breakfast with cinnamon and DaVinci French vanilla. Toasted it when it was cooled. Added a bite of peanut butter and LC syrup. Very tasty! I think I will try cutting back on the butter. I did notice when I took it from the toaster the butter was seeping from it.

I made this twice.

Last night, original recipe w/a little shredded cheddar. Very good.

This morning, I left out the salt, then added Splenda and Cinnamon. I ate it like a pancake w/Smucker's Sugar Free Syrup. WOW!!! It was awesome!

So let's hear what everybody puts on top of these awesome little creatures.

For me, it's peanut butter spread thin of course.

Thank you for this recipe. After I read it this morning, I went to the kitchen and made the version with 1/2 flax and 1/2 almond meal. yummm I see lots of uses for this.

I may just go out and purchase a muffin top pan and do this in quantity in the oven. I see burgers in our future this summer with these.

Thanks

I slice and toast and spread with SF preserves for breakfast. I made DH a cheeseburger with it. He was shocked I allowed him to have "bread". He liked it or at least he said he did. Anyway he ate it.

I've sliced these, toasted them and spread cream cheese on them. Carb Options PB as well. This morning I toasted one "slice", put two strips of bacon over it, added a slice of cheddar, nuked until cheese was melty. Yum.

I LOVE iteachrebs idea of splenda/cinnamon and pancake syrup! I'm having that for breakfast tomorrow!

Tried it this way to take out the egg flavor. Delicious. Does 4 net carbs sound right? It's soooooo good.

I just got through eating one of your egg sandwiches, it was great. I really like the cheese in it.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Betty,
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

Has anyone tried baking them in the oven? I am curious if there would be much of a taste difference? I usually don't care for things cooked in the micro.

Betty,
This is such a GREAT recipe!! I've used it a couple of times for breakfast (egg sandwich, toast w/ jelly) but used it for the first time last night for an actual hamburger bun. I must say this was the best burger I've had in a LONG time. The taste is so wonderful and it makes a large bun that actually holds everything together. I doubled the original recipe (except for butter, only used 2T) and got 3 good sized buns. This will be a keeper for sure!! No more revolution rolls for me! Thanks so much!

If anyone has tried it in the oven I haven't heard about it. I'm too lazy, it's too easy just to pop them in the microwave.

TXkim,
You are very welcome, I enjoy having a good gilt free sandwich to. I've been thinking lately of maybe doubling or tripling the recipe and putting them in one of those oblong shaped Glad Take-along disposable containers and seeing if I could make a small loaf of flax bread.

They're supposed to hold up in the microwave. I might give it a try.

Betty, as per your request.

This is more carby, and really a MAINTENANCE-level recipe for bread. A lot more ingredients, but worth it to have bread without soy

NUKER BREAD

This recipe is a double amount, and I used two 5" x 5" square plastic foodsaver bowls. Makes 4 slices.

2 TBLS melted butter
3 TBLS yogurt
1/4 tsp salt
2 lg eggs
2 TBLS flaxmeal
3 TBLS almond flour
2 TBLS whole wheat flour
3 TBLS vital wheat gluten
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Splenda

Beat the eggs slightly before adding to the mixture, then divide into two 5 x 5 square bowls. Nuke for a tad over a minute.

This is one of the square breads, before slicing it into....each slice is then 1/2" thick and 4 1/2 x 4 1/2"...

Well I made this today, it was very good, I had it with Cheese, 1/4lb burger, mayo and lettuce.

I used 3 parts Flaxmeal and 1 part ground Almond, it came out very well.

I will try a cinnamon and splenda one for breakfast tomorrow.

Thanks for a great recipe!!
