Microwave Induction Friendly FLax Bread

Got this from another site and DH made it this morning just to try it out... Totally two thumbs up!!! It would be great as a cake also with the cocoa or maybe adding different extracts for another flavor.... It came out thick so maybe a larger bowl would thin it out so it could be used as a pita bread or something....

Microwave Induction Friendly Flax Bread
Total Carbs = 2g

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Ingredients:

2T butter
2 eggs
4 heaped T flax meal
1/2t baking powder

How to Prepare:

Melt butter. Add eggs and mix together. Add flax meal and baking powder and mix until smooth. Leave it for a minute to thicken up. Put in a microwavable container, about 4" x 5", and microwave for 3 minutes. Turn out and let cool.

You could use for sandwiches or toast. Try adding cocoa and splenda to make it a cake-like treat. *adjust carb counts.

I also make this using SF Davinci's and Splenda for a sweeter breakfast 'bread' and adding onion and garlic powder for a pizza crust.

I have a question on the flax meal. I can't find it to buy in my area but in the vitamin section at walmart I do see bags of flax seed. Can I just buy that and grind it up? would I use a coffee grinder like they say to use for almond meal?

DebLyn - that's how I make my flax meal. Just make sure to grind it really well (although I actually like the occasional whole seed). For me it's a matter of economics. I can get flax seeds in bulk for 99 cents / pound. The Red Mill flax meal costs $3.99 for the bag (which I believe is 10 oz.). That to me is a ridiculous price.

Oh - and do use a coffee grinder. (I just use a pastry brush to clean it out but I hear canned air works well, too.)

Thanks for the info . Our oven hasn't worked for a bit now so I haven't tried the flax bread yet. I was excited to find a microwave recipe!

I also make microwave flax bread just about every day but use a combo/takeoff of recipes that were previously posted here. I alternate making bread, flatbread/tortilla, crackers, or a muffin and always incorporate 1/4 cup of flax meal. I also like the idea of making single-serve portions in the microwave...quick, easy, and made fresh! I make my bread, flatbread/tortilla, or crackers by spreading out on parchment paper. I form the "batter" into two circles or oval shapes to make a bun for a hamburger or sandwich. For a muffin, I use a small round glass bowl. Flax has such great health benefits.

There are a bunch of great threads with more variations on the recipe that you posted. Just in case you wanted to take a look through them, I've posted the links below.

Thanks for sharing this recipe Jugo. Quick question...is cocoa allowed on induction?? I'd like to add a tablespoon maybe to this recipe. I think it is...I'm just not certain. I don't want to mess up this time.

Blessings,
Compassion
