I don't know if someone asked this question, but how do you get rid of the egg taste and smell from the muffin?

I have never noticed an eggy taste but one thing that I do that is a little different than the original recipe is to add a little vanilla to it. I have yet to make them the savory way...can't get past the nice sweetness of them (cinnamon helps with that, too). But yeah...add some vanilla -- about 1/2 tsp.

Is your muffin too dry? I never have an eggy taste or smell?

Really, too dry? Before or after it's cooked. I'm surprised you have no egg taste or smell. I wonder what I'm doing wrong.
I used the normal recipe, but used almond flour and added Dacvinci's banana sf syrup.
Maybe I'll use some vanilla too and see if that helps.

I use CO and flaxmeal-never dry. Maybe you need to up the fat or nuke less because of the almond meal.

The original recipe uses flaxseed meal. Can you use that? I don't know how they come out with almond flour since I've never used it... You could still flavor it with your banana stuff...

Yes, Lisabinil...I've used coconut oil before too. Sometimes, I use Smart Balance. When I made them with pumpkin, I didn't use any fat and they still came out delicious (I actually forgot to add the fat). I've forgotten the cinnamon before, too, and they taste good and vanilla-ie. I love vanilla.

I made them both ways. I saw a post here sometime ago with the almond flour. I think I need to cook them in less time, it looked like it had moisture in it, so I microwaved it for another 25 sec.

I'll taste the flaxseed one I made and see how that came out. Thanks!

Okay, I just ate a slice of the flaxseed muffin I made this morning, after it was in the refrigerator for an hour and it was really good! No egg taste or smell.

I'm happy!

That's one thing I've noticed the recipes copied aren't adding from the original-they need to still look a little shiny & wet when you take them out of the microwave and not look dry. The OneMinuteMuffin recipe sees a resurgance with newbies about every 2 months.

Yes, that would help if it is stated in the recipe that the muffin needs to have that look. Because I've been overcooking it, lol!
Thanks for your help!

What surgery?
Do you have a blender? A mortar and pestle? A food processor? A mini-chopper? A meat tenderizer? A pepper grinder? You can improvise!

Hi my Ghetto Sandy!!!

I think alot of people melt the butter in the mug and then mix in the egg first...and other wet ingredients...then add the dry.

I need to experiment w/ these again...my first attempts were not so good. I got banana davincis and lemon just for this purpose...maybe tomorrow morning.

Hi there Sandy & Missy!

I came looking for this recipe again and to see if this was the thread with the savory "bread" like idea. I made it before and found it held up to my fillings (ham,cheese,mayo,mustard & pickle) very well. Now to weed through all these posts in hopes of finding it.

Just a reminder to all to make sure you drink your water with these.

Hi, to the boards, I'm a lurker!
I am eating a LOT of these muffins and I find that if I pop the muffin out of the mug or bowl when it is done and turn it over and put it in for a few more seconds then it finishes up the wet underside. I also toast them sometimes.

OK, I have read thru most of this thread...maybe I'm a little crazy and just can't remember. But is this for sure ok to have on induction? I am having trouble and I don't want to make a mistake. I also noticed in the DANDR that he says to have 1 tbsp. of flaxseed or psyllium husks for fiber. Since these are flaxseed meal, they are already ground. Geeze, I am really getting technical, aren't I? But seriously...if anyone reads this this morning, please respond. I haven't eaten yet because I'm trying so hard to be careful. And I kind of want one of these instead of my usual bacon and eggs. But I don't want to break the rules.

Thank you!

[COLOR="DarkGreen"]I have always used egg substitute in my OMM's- no egg taste. Got real eggs now (had a ton of egg sub to get through 1st!), so will see. We used banana extract in one batch- not enough to flavor like I wanted. Does the DaVinci's make it taste like banana bread? I also use almond meal.[/COLOR]

DANDR states that 2 tbls of flax are allowed in Induction basically to help with constipation. So I would say half a OMM would be ok.

I never thought to add protein powder to a muffin... and since I found the best protein powder on the planet (Jay Robb) I decided to try it last night. This was my muffin:

1/4 cup flaxmeal
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 scoop Jay Robb protein powder chocolate (coulda used a whole one)
a dash of coconut sf syrup
enough chocolate Calorie Countdown milk to moisten it

Didn't use any butter or coconut oil-- it doesn't need it at all. The flaxmeal is fatty itself. Then I topped it with a very thin coat of choc flavored cream cheese. It was SO GOOD!
