Just made them with the muffin top pans..Very, very good.

Okay..I'm thinking of a cinnamon raisin bagel..Skip the savory stuff and add cinnamon
and a touch ofsome sweetener to the dry ingredients. Cut some raisins in half and add them also. Then use mozzarella cheese instead of the cheddar for a milder cheese..

Blueberry? Add some SF blueberry jam to the sweeter recipe..

I made these also, very yummy. Great toasted with cream cheese! I don't have dry ranch powder so I just put a pinch of oregano, basil, garlic powder and dill in these instead.

I have a large jar of dry ranch powder that I got at Sam's Club. It is the same stuff that you'd made dressing or dip with. I believe the packets have 3 T. of powder. You only need 1/2 tsp. or you could replace it with whatever spice would go with the flavor you're making.

Kim those look so good! Did you add any chopped jalapenos to the batter, or just the sliced ones on top? I think my DD would really like that variation. I'm really enjoying the asiago one. I toast them so they are really crunchy on the bottom and eat them with butter.

Carolyn, I've been thinking about a sweet one with cinnamon too. Your ideas sound like they would work. If you try it, please post results.

The only time I liked cream cheese on a bagel was when I had walnut raisin cream cheese on a plain or cinnamon bagel. The cream cheese was sweetened, and had chopped walnuts in it. It also had raisins, but I'm not a fan, so I would pick them out. So, I would try to replicate that cream cheese if I made a sweet version.

I made 8 more baggies of the dry mix yesterday, and two batches of flax bagels, an "everything" and an asiago. I really like being able to pull a bag of dry mix out of the fridge, add a few more ingredients, and bake.

Cathy...thanks! My diabetic friends and family are enjoying this treat with a bit of cream cheese as we speak.

Calories per serving of Flax Everything Muffin - 16 mini muffins
16 calories of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, (0.13 tbsp)
13 calories of almond flour, (0.02 cup)
12 calories of Eggs. Grade A Jumbo (1 Egg), (0.13 serving)
4 calories of Flax Seed Meal, Bob's Red Mill (Golden) - 2 Tbsp, (0.06 serving)
1 calories of Chia Gel, (0.13 tbsp)
0 calories of Baking Powder, (0.08 tsp)
0 calories of Garlic powder, (0.02 tsp)
0 calories of Onion powder, (0.02 tsp)
0 calories of Salt, (0.06 dash)
Are the calories for 1 of 16 mini muffins or 1 of 6 bagels?

I believe that is for 1 of 16 mini-muffins, and it looks like these figures do not include the cheese that the original "bagel" recipe had.

Calorie Count per muffin - 16 mini muffins

The calculations are for 1 of 16 mini muffins from a 24 mini muffin pan. I omitted the cheese...lactose intolerant, but the count gives us some guidance. Based on Cathy's 6 "bagels" per receipe, 4 minis = 1 bagel

Cathy, I don't add peppers to the batter, only on top. Love them right out of the oven and I want to try your asiago version next. I also love your suggestion to make up baggies of the dry mix...makes it very easy and quick to whip up a batch. And I will be whipping these up often! It's nice to have another alternative for breakfast.

Thanks in advance!

Jill

nutritiondata.com. Your calorie count is too low. The entire batch's calories are 1020 (without chia gel). So for 6=170, 16=64 using the ingredients I have on hand.

Thanks for the correction. This was the first time I tried to calculate a receipe and it's calories for one. I'll try nutritiondata.com next time.

made a lowfatish version (sweet)

wet: 4 Tbs reduced fat cream cheese
1/2 cup eggbeaters
3 Tbs chia gel
2-3 tbs vanilla davincis

dry: 1/4 cup flaxmeal
1/4 cup oatfiber
1 scoop protein powder
1/3 cup erythritol
1.5 tsp baking powder


I think around 65 calories if the recipe makes 6. I loved them--reconstituted some TJ's peanut flour with salt and caramel davincis and 2 for breakfast with "peanut butter" and SF jam. yum.

Carolyn, how did the cinnamon raisin turn out? And how many carbs do you think they have? Sounds really good...

Kim: I thought they were good and sweet for breakfast. I just put a snack size (not mini) box of raisins in the whole recipe..So, let me check the carbs..34 carbs in a little box..divided by 6, so I would estimate
5-6 carbs extra per bagel..Of course, you can cut the raisins in half and have fewer carbs..

I made these and they are wonderful. Cut one in half last night and used it for a hamburger bun. I have not been a big fan of the taste of flax, but it is not noticeable in this recipe. I am going to add 1/2 scoop of unflavored protein to make it "chewier", but I love them as is.

Opps..My box of raisins was only 1 ounce, so the carbs were around 22 for the whole recipe..

Yum!!! I made 6 savory and 6 sweet today. Has anyone tried freezing these? We're having such a mild summer in S. California, I'd like to bake quite a few batches and freeze them before the inevitable heat hits.

Glad to hear this because I really don't like the taste of flax Please post your results on the protein powder

I freeze them immediately into baggies with a twisty. They are easier to cut when they are frozen, too. You can let them defrost on the counter or just pop them into the
toaster from the freezer.

just want to mention that I just made the BEST grilled cheese sandwich with one of these--I cut it in half to make two rounds, and put cheese in the middle and then fried in butter. Just fabulous! I am a grilled cheese hound, always looking for a bread sub--and this is far and away the best I have found.
