I use 2T flax meal (usually golden) and 2T almond meal (makes 1/4c). I melt the butter (maybe 2t) in the cup first for about 15 seconds, then add 1/4t baking powder, 1/2t-ish (I just shake it in) cinammon, about 2T davinci caramel syrup, and an egg. Nuke for about 1 minute 15 seconds. OMG, so good.

There is alot of room to play with that recipe...sometimes I omit the splenda and cinnamon, add some herbs, onion powder, and put it in a square container, it cooks up like a thick piece of bread, I cut it in half and make a sandwich...I suggest you toy around with it a bit. I usually don't use all the cinnamon, about half that amount, then I add some nutmeg, it has a milder flavor.

This is a fantastic recipe! I make mine in an old soup mug. Melt the butter in the mug,
add the egg and mix. Add the dry ingredients, stir and bake in microwave for 1 minute.

It comes out (size) like a hamburger bun. Cut it in half and make yourself a ham & cheese sandwich. Wonderful recipe.

I usually use 2 T. each of flax meal and almond meal. Again, great recipe.

Nikki

I've recently started having flax meal every day with my breakfast.

1/4 flax meal
1/4 vanilla whey protein
1 egg
1 tbs coconut oil
1 tbs heavy cream
enough davicini's to make a semi-loose batter

Makes three nice-size pancakes that I then spread with coconut oil. They are delicious, and keeps things moving.

SashimMark,

Thanks for the recipe! Three nice size pancakes sounds good to me.

Is that 1/4 cup Flax Meal and 1/4 cup Vanilla Protein Powder?

Thanks again,

Nikki

I just tried this. Delicious! Wished I'd had some LC syrup to put on top; tasted like a pancake!. Will definitely continue to make these. Thanks, CooperAnnette!

Hi Nikki. Yes, that's what I use. 1/4 cup of flax meal and 1/4 of vanilla whey protein powder. Just makes it easier for me to measure, using the same measuring cup for both, and for measuring out the pancake batter for even pancakes. They aren't HUGE, but good sized. And the flax expands, which helps to make you feel full.

You're welcome, Patti. They ARE tasty...I just made one for Bob (fiance). We really enjoy them. Every now and then I tweak them, but that recipe is our fave. He still laughs about our "diet" being the best thing he could ever imagine...no "portioning", delicious food, and we still lose weight like crazy!

I made these for the first time this week they are really good. I make it in the morning and bring it for a snack later in the day, very filling. I will have to try the variations as they sound good.

I've started adding a tbs of natural peanut butter to these and halving the co. They're pretty damn good.

Mark,
The pancakes came out wonderful and so easy. Has been years since I had pancakes.

Again, this is truly a great recipe and whoever came up with the original recipe, should get a medal or an Oscar. Wish I could have one every day, but my system can only take it on every other day or so.

Nikki

This was fantastic! Thanks! I was looking for something like this as I've made the flax meal bread before and although I love it, it's just too much to keep around as I'm the only one in the house eating it. This is just perfect for me. Thinking of making a cream cheese and splenda topping to make it kind of "Cinnabon-y".


This was very filling too!

Made a variation on this recipe this morning except I put in about 1 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder and some sf caramel Davinci's syrup to sweeten. I also used coconut oil instead of the butter.

I have perfect sized Fiestaware bowls that make a nice looking round shape and have enough flat bottom if you know what I mean.

I cooked it about 75 seconds on high, flipped it out on a dish, and used just a bit of Davinci's SF pancake syrup.

Nice to have a hint of chocolate flavor in it.

I added about a tablespoon of raspberries to the recipe and it made the muffin very moist and tasty
