My understanding is that it's an acid, which helps activate the baking soda and baking powder. I saw it used in the faux cakeability recipe, so I've been using it ever since when I use those for leavening. I'm sure you could leave it out if you don't have it or object to using it.

I added about a tsp. of caraway seeds and a sprinkle of onion powder to the flax seeds when I ground them. Then followed the original recipe. It made a wonderful Rueben sandwich. Yum!!!

Bev,
This is what I love about this bb. Someone always has a creative idea to make a plain recipe even better.

I went out to dinner with my daughter several days ago. She ordered a rueben sandwich and when I said how much I missed them, she suggested this. They don't have the full rye bread flavor but the caraway seeds make it close. Enjoy!

Bumping because these are so good. I made one this morning with a little apple pie spice added to the batter. I toasted it, buttered it and poured SF syrup over and ate it like pancakes. So good!!!


Thanks to whoever created this recipe!!! (BettyR I think)

Thanks so much Betty!

I was wondering how long I could go without a bun for burgers...after all, summer is coming.

I can't handle another grocery store soy tasting LC bun!

This is great and can be produced very easily.

I did the sub of 2 almond flour, 2 flax meal and egg white only.

I was worried because my baking powder expired a few months ago, but it seems to be ok for now.

I am almost thinking I can pack this for lunch with a little PB.

THANKS!!! Rosie

Rosie-
I'm so glad that this recipe has helped you. I tried it a couple of days ago with some Carbquik and I didn't like it. It was way too crumbly and salty.

Breakfast French Toast

Sweet Version of Bun

2T Flax
2T Alm flr
1/2tsp b-powd
shakes of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg
1pk splenda
1pk sweet one

1 egg
2T FrVan syrup.

Mix the dry - Add the wet - cook in a rectangluar lunch container. (measures about the same as a slice of bread). MicroW for about 2-1/2 minutes.

I let it cool and slice it in half length wise. Tomorrow I will toast it at work and cut it in strips, like french toast sticks. . I even put a little bit of sf maple syrup in a small container to take with me for dipping.

I did pinch a little off the corner and it is really good. I think it might be a little too sweet, with the packets and the syrup. We'll see after I warm it up tomorrow. If so, I will leave out one of the packets of sweetner next time.

Philly~

I'm bumping this again because they are so good. I made four of them this morning. I added orange flavoring to one, banana flavoring to one, caraway seeds to one and Italian seasonings to the last one. The tweaks are endless.

Why can't I open the pictures??? I get a square with a red X in it. When I right-click on it, it says "show picture". When I click on that nothing happens! The box just disappears and comes back up. Is there a setting somewhere that I need to change?? Thanks, Chris

Here's another version; I ate a HB on one of these yesterday and it was really good.

I think I'm going to give this version a try with some chocolate and sweetener in it and see what happens.

Carbquik HB Bun
3.5g carbs

1 tablespoon melted butter
2 tablespoons almond flour
2 tablespoons Carbquik
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 jumbo egg

Stir all ingredients together very well. Place in a microwave save cereal bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Poke 3 vent holes in the plastic wrap and microwave for 1 minute.

Let it sit for about 3 minutes then turn out and slice.

Note: I haven't tried this with a regular size egg. My hens lay very big eggs so that's all I have. The batter is the same consistency of cake batter. So if you try this with a large egg you might want to add a tablespoon or so of water to get the right consistency.

I find that doubling this original recipe makes 3 good sized buns. I do not double the amount of butter though, 2 T. seems to be plenty. To me, the single recipe is just too large. I love this as both a hamburger bun and a breakfast bun with egg, ham and cheese.

I just bought a Corningware Grab-It bowl a week ago at Walmart. They're not online but they had a few in the store.

oven?

I don't have a microwave. Is there a way to do this in an oven?

Yes, this would also work in the oven...watch closely as it won't take long to cook. Love this recipe, it has become a staple in my diet.

Thanks everyone for bumping - I haven't seen this and think I will try it tomorrow for my burgers. I think I will try a dog bun, not sure what I will make it in.

I made this for hot dog buns. I reduced the flaxseed to 3 Tbsp., added 1 Tbsp. Carbquik and 3 Tbsp. shredded Colby Jack cheese. I cooked it in a rectangular baking dish (about 5"x3") on HIGH for 1 min. 20 sec. When it was cool, I sliced the bread lengthwise, then cut each halfway through to imitate the shape of a hot dog bun. These worked very well for hot dog buns.

Ham And Cheese Poppers

Thank you for this recipe!!!

From it I've had super-fast breakfast sandwiches - and today - I replaced the Flaxseed Meal with Almond Meal and made Ham And Cheese Poppers.

I just layered batter, then a slice of ham, then a slice of cheese, then a top layer of batter, into each well of a 6x4 1" squares silicone brownies mold and baked it at 350F for about 15min.

Everyone loved them!

Thanks again!
Maya

I finally tried this - sorry I waited so long! I made the all flax version with a pinch of onion powder, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. I toasted and buttered the bun, grilled a steak and used the bun to soak up the juices - yummy!
