I haven't gone through all of the posts on this thread yet - but for the past year that I've changed to low-carb, I thought I loved the regular brown flax...finally switched to the golden flaxseed and yeah I don't think I'll go back to the brown!

Golden is SO much better and doesn't have that "grainy" taste that the brown does...

here's the post to my recent recipe for flax:

EDIT:
also, finally went through all of the recipes...i can't WAIT to try those cocoa flax cookies! also going to make me a batch of kevin's dried cranberries!!!

For those of us who don't like coconut except for fresh only (I know, weird), can you taste the coconut oil? Just curious. Possibly the onion masks it.

Coconut oils vary in taste. I get a cheap one at Walmart, Louann's I think. It has no coconut flavor. I can use it in anything, and my husband can't tell. He's not a coconut fan.

That's exactly what I use too Soobee.....Terry, you can use any oil you like, I use coconut oil because I read it speeds up the metabolism.

I also like the Now brand of unflavored whey protein from Netrition.

Thank you. That's good to know (about the non-taste). I keep reading it's good for us so may try it.

I love Golden Flax Meal! I add it to my Fage full fat yogurt. In fact, there are times when I actually crave flax. I wonder what's up with that?

1/4 cup vanilla davinci's
1/4 cup cooking oil plus 2 T.
2T. water
2T. Cinnamon (amount is correct)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup golden flaxmeal

Beat eggs and other wet ingredients well. Add dry, mix to combine. Let the batter sit for about 5 mins. Spoon into 12 greased muffin tins, bake @ 350- for 12ish minutes... I overbake mine slightly... they are almost crunch when they first come out but then soften up a little bit - I eat these over a course of like 4-5 days so I dont like them to turn to total mush.

I got this recipe from Macattaz (Lisa)
I made these this afternoon. Thanks for the recipe - they were fantastic. I used 3/4 cup of golden flax and 1/4 cup of ground almonds. I have tried so many flax muffin recipes and none of them have tasted quite right. These looked excactly like bran muffins and had a beautiful muffin texture and taste.

I have a fifteen year old who is my taste test gauge. She has turned her nose up at every flax muffin I have tried before. She loved these. My five year old ate 3!!! She wanted more but that's a little overboard. All three of my boys enjoyed them.

I was going to ask you how on earth you made 12 of them from this batch as when I copied it down, I did not see that you doubled the recipe. I got 8 med muffins from the original recipe - 12 would have been a real stretch.

So I tried the first batch with the Davinci's - superb. The next batch I tried with 12 packets of Truvia and used 1/4 cup of water to replace the liquid. Almost as good - not quite as sweet though. Is that strange because wouldn't 12 pakcets of truvia be atleast as sweet as 1/4 cup Davincis? I'd rather do some sort of stevia for the greater health benefits...could anyone help with this?

Made these tonight. Very good. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. This is the first flax muffin that has tasted right to me I have tried. I used DaVinci Sugar Free French Vanilla.

Dredging up this most useful topic.
I ordered the golden flax seed and a grinder from Amazon and have since been waiting for arrival. Now getting the needed baking supplies ready..
Here's my question: I have a full bottle of DaVinchi Ameretto syrup that I would like to use in a recipe. It has a nutty flavor, Apparently real Amaretto is made from peaches and almonds and this tastes more like crushed almonds.
Any suggestions how to employ the bottle? I am thinking muffins. What spices, additions would you recommend? Or flaxseed quick bread, etc.
