Flax Meal Recipes

I recently made the flax meal muffins on Linda's site and loved them. I was wondering if anyone knew of some more LC recipes for flax meal. I would like to try using it in different things but don't quite know how. Thanks!

I posted this in another thread, recently, but I cannnot find it now, so I'll repost it for you. This is my favorite Pancake recipe, and I have tried many low carb pancake recipes before this one.

Flax Pancakes

2 eggs slightly beaten
1 scoop (1/4 cup) vanilla whey powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp SF DaVinci syrup (I use vanilla)
1/4 cup Flaxmeal
dash of lite salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix ingredients well. Fry in butter or oil.
Makes 4 pancakes, 5 net carbs per recipe.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some others: I havent tried them, yet. Maybe you can let us all know how they are if you try them. I don't recall the source for these.


Doreen's "Sourdough Rye" Rolls


Serving Size: 6

-= Ingredients =-

3 eggs + 1 egg white
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
2 - 3 Tbsp water
4 tablespoons flaxmeal
3 tablespoons raw wheat bran
1 teaspoon crushed caraway seeds
1/2 teaspoon granulated onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 packet SugarTwin ; (or 2 tsp bulk Splenda)

-= Instructions =-

- preheat oven to 500°
- separate eggs; sprinkle cream of tartar over whites, set aside.
- blend yolks with melted butter, vinegar and 2 Tbsp water, add flaxmeal, bran caraway seeds, onion powder, salt and sweetener. Batter may be stiff .. add up to an extra Tbsp water if it seems dry.
- using squeaky clean beaters, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
- fold yolk-flax mixture into whites, taking care not to overmix or break down the fluffy whites
- using a spatula or wooden spoon, make 6 high mounds on a Pam-sprayed baking sheet (I used a "muffin top" pan). Place in center of oven and immediately reduce heat to 300°. Bake for 15 min.
- reduce heat to 250°, bake an additional 15 min or till golden
- cool on rack, store in airtight container
- These flatten somewhat after cooling, but they can still be sliced in half without crumbling if you use a sharp knife.



Tomato, Onion and Garlic Flaxseed Crackers

-= Ingredients =-

2 cups ground flaxseed ; grind in blender
1 cup tomato powder
1/2 cup dried onion
1 tablespoon garlic powder

-= Instructions =-

Mix in a (rather large) bowl with a cup of whole flaxseed. Add
water and mix well, until it becomes the consistency of a thick cookie
dough. Cover and let rest in the frig overnight. Spread onto leather sheets. Spread out smoothly. At this point, the mix isvery stiff and not really sticky at all. Put in dryer (around 120-130) -takes 8-16 hrs to dry, depending on room conditions. Dry until crisp, then break into cracker size pieces.

You can do these in the oven with the door propped open, if you do not have a food dehydrator


This one came from these boards but like a goofball, I forgot to write down the name of the original poster. I hear these are very good


Cocoa Flax Cookies


Serving Size: 12

-= Ingredients =-

Cookie ; ingredients:
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate or vanilla SF DaVinci
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon both baking powder and soda
3 heaping Tbsp baking cocoa
Frosting ; ingredients:
1/2 pkg cream cheese ; melted
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3 packets or 1/3 C pourable Splenda

-= Instructions =-

Mix eggs, vanilla, DaVinci, and oil by hand. In a separate bowl, blend the flaxseed with the baking powder/soda. Combine dry ingredients with wet, mixing by hand. Fold in 2 heaping Tbsp cocoa to mixture and mix well. Once mixed, add the final heaping Tbsp cocoa to mixture, should be thick like cookie dough.

Drop by spoonful onto greased cookie sheet (I used parchment paper). Place into preheated oven (350) and bake 9-12 minutes (mine were done after 9 minutes). (Makes 12 - 15 cookies)

When cooled, add frosting


I know I have more. I'll try to add more, later. I'm sure others will have recipes to contribute, too.

You;re welcome. I'm always happy to help, whenever I can.

The pancakes are very good and have the best texture of any LC ones I have tasted so far.

I think I will make some in the morning! This has me wanting them, now!

I made one pancake and one Belguim waffle. Both were great, but I particularly enjoyed the waffle. This recipe is great.

Hi YummyGirl, I am very interested in the Tomatoe/Garlic Cracker recipe,
but never heard of Tomatoe Powder were do you find this at?
I live in Ohio also, north of Delaware County. Can you get it at Krogers, Meijers? Thanks

Sherrie, when I have a recipe that uses tomato powder I use powder I made myself by drying tomatos in my dehydrator (you can dry them in an oven, also) and then using a food processor or blender to pulverize the dried tomatoes into powder. I've never actually seen it in the stores.

I try and keep veggie blend powders, tomato powders, etc, that I made myself, on hand.

It's a great recipe, I wish it was mine, but I cannot take credit for it. I found it on a message board somewhere, but I dont remember where who the original poster was. I reposted it to share here, with others though.

Individual Pumpkin Bread

Bunches of recipes using flax meal on my website. Do a keyword search on the site for "flax meal". But this is my favorite so far:



INDIVIDUAL PUMPKIN BREAD:

INGREDIENTS:

1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
4 drops liquid Splenda
1 pkt. stevia sweetener
2 T. pumpkin (not the pie filling)
2 T. golden flaxmeal
2 T. brown flaxmeal
˝ tsp. baking powder
1 T. oat fiber [omit if still in Induction]
˝ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch each of cloves and nutmeg
1 T. heavy cream

DIRECTIONS: Melt butter in microwave in a small bowl or mid-size ramekin. Add egg, pumpkin, cream and liquid Splenda and beat until smooth. Add flax meals, spices, baking powder and stevia and stir to blend well. Microwave on HI for about 1 min 20 seconds. If dry to the touch in the center, it’s done. Remove, cool a minute and using knife tip, gently tip it out of the ramekin/bowl. Can be eaten as is or you can ice with my Lime Frosting or any favorite topping.

NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes 1 serving: (does NOT include any frosting)
