I'm really sorry and a bit surprised, Julie. I think that maybe it is the flax issue with your family because even HC peeps seem to like this bread. And I'm sure the not sugar wasn't a problem.

Just maybe not to your family's taste and that is just fine. We all make recipes that others rave about and we find . ? though, what recipe did you use? All the recipes on here have a different taste, I have found.

Julie, give it another try, see if there is something you might have left out. Is it possible you left out the cheese? One full cup of cheese should have your batter looking like a drop biscuit dough. Or could it be your whey protein? I use Now unflavored whey protein and I think it makes a difference. Like Linda said I have made sandwiches for non low carbers and they like the bread.

yum! I tried the cheese danish recipe and it was very good. I only got 5 biscuits in my muffin top, but they ended up being pretty big. I also overcooked it a bit, so next time will try 10 minutes in the oven.

Thanks so much ladies for all of your wonderful ideas!!

Try the original one I posted from Ouizoid and see if you like that one, Julie. I like them both for different reasons and different applications for different meals.

I made the basic recipe with almond flour. Nice flavor, but slightly dry. Hmmm...Maybe I will add more fat. Almond flour doesn't have the fat that flaxmeal has, so that might
be the difference..

Hmmm I have missed a nice panko type of bread crumbs. With the texture of these, they might dry nicely and I can grind them for breading. I will have to experiment with this this weekend!

I will try breaded stuffed jalapeno poppers baked in the oven this weekend. My original recipe called for panko bread crumbs. Will let you all know!

Darn wish I didn't have to work - takes away from my recipe experimenting time!

OMG Gluten free, low carb panko breadcrumbs! Ouizoid's English Muffins



Oh my god guys, these make amazing bread crumbs as well as croutons! I cut them up in little 1/2 inch cubes and baked in the oven on a cookie sheet until crisp at 350 for 20-25 minutes. As I wanted to use them for my baked stuffed jalapenos recipe I put them in my food processor and processed.

The high fat content from the flax seed made them crisp and crunchy yet they are not fatty or oily when done as crumbs. They have the consistency of panko which was was I was looking for!

I will post my no gluten baked stuffed jalepeno popper recipe this weekend when I can figure out my camera so I can post pictures. They are awesome! I am thinking of the possibilities here with actual "breadcrumbs", especially on top of a casserole, cheesy cauliflower etc. You could keep them in the freezer.

I just wanted to share that 1-2 teaspoons caraway seeds added to the original recipe makes them taste like rye buns. Great for sandwiches!

They will work...I used poppy seeds and sesame seeds on the top of the original everything bagels.

Great idea about the caraway seeds for a rye-type bread!

I FINALLY got around to making these! They're quite good. I made a salami/cheese sandwich on one of them split in half.

I pretty much used Beeb's recipe, I used rice bran oil instead of olive and I used the rest of the gruyere/swiss cheese blend on had on hand in place of mozz. I did use 1/2 tsp. Thicken Thin Not/Starch in them too, and just enough water to blend it all up good. I think next time I might make the batter a little thinner so it will spread to take up the whole space in each muffin top cup.

I really like these! GOOD JOB Ouis and Cap and all the tweakers!

DH has been looking at these like I'm trying to poison him or something. Tonight, since I had a big lunch, I decided to split and toast one and have it for dinner, while I made HIM a big brisket sandwich on Ezekiel bread.

Well, I split the muffin and he says, "Let me try a little bite of that..." and before I knew it he had eaten the WHOLE thing with SF strawberry jam! So I think it's safe to say - MIKEY LIKES IT!!

He said I should be sure to always have those on hand now....

I split and toasted another and had butter and SF blackberry jam on it.

I made my tweaked recipe last night into hot dog rolls and DBF and I took them to a hot dog place and used them for the hot dog we ordered without the bun! I just spread the mixture out onto a plain cookie sheet and made them the shape of a hot dog roll, then baked them. I got 4 hot dog rolls from the recipe and they did take about 5 minutes more to bake.

DBF said he would eat them again, so like Char's hubby I think we can safely say we HAVE A WINNER!!

That is so awesome beeb!! I don't understand how you made them the shape of a hot dog? Did you make them into log shapes and then slice them lengthwise? Did they come out really thick or thinner?

I'm going to have to try this one!! Good job!!

I did make then into log shapes, long, thin log shapes. They came out great and I sliced them before we went and put them in a zip lock bag! I'm now on the hunt for something that looks like a hot dog roll shape bake pan to make them in!

OHO! Thanks to a convo with Maru, I tried my EM recipe today with no cheese at all--and tweaked the flours:
1/4 c oatfiber
1/4 c golden flaxmeal
1/4 c wheat bran
1 scoop unflavoured protein powdr
1 Tsp vital wheat gluten
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder
1/2 tsp xantham gum
1/2 tsp baking powder

wet ingredients: 1 Tbs chia seeds dissolved in 1/4 c hot wate
1 Tb grapeseed oil
2/3 cup eggbeatrs
splash or two almond milk

they were absolutely delish and I did not miss the cheese at ALL

I think they are around 75 cals per english muffin--toasted up well too!

Thanks Maru!

It's good to know that the cheese may not be needed. I think the Chia seed is the reason, don't you, Oui? Or maybe not?

HA! Well I'll have to try THAT now! LOL!

I haven't succumbed to the glucomannan powder yet so I'll just use my Thicken Thin Not/Starch in it.

Just made a double batch of the original recipe yesterday so it will be a few days before I need more.

However - DH and I were talking about this, and I think the newest recipe lends itself well to this idea - strawberry shortcake bases! With vanilla protein powder and some sweetener added, some yummy sliced strawberries and SF whipped cream...I'm drooling thinking about it.

I want to try the "panko" breadcrumb idea too - and DH suggested I cube the muffins and then put them in the dehydrator! THEN grind 'em up... Now y'all know why I married him, he's so smart!

That's great, I have chia but haven't used them in the muffins yet but I will in my next batch because like you I also try and watch calories as well as carbs.

Linda--I think the chia, glucomannan powder, and xantham gum suck up enough moisture so that you don't need the cheese--at least that is what Maru suggested--and I think she is right. I had to keep adding a little almond milk and water til the dough was soft enough to put in the muffin top pans.

Char--I totally think these would be great as shortbread bases. I think Maru made pumpkin donuts using basically this recipe (she uses more flax than I and more oil) as a base--and she really liked them.

In my other experiment lately with glucomannan powder, it really changes the texture and crumb of the protein powder/oat fiber combo into something special. Manu has been doing the same thing with xanthan gum. I think it is exciting!! waiting to see everyone's experiments!

Ha! I think we all must be thinking alike because last night I was looking at a yellow cake recipe and thought I bet I can make a cake since the donuts turned out so well. I picked up some cake and cookie bakery emulsion from Ross store recently and I think it will give it the taste that's needed,
