Well, folks, you might remember I mentioned I made up a cinnamon roll from this wonderful stuff...on the 17th, seven days ago. I ate half, wrapped the rest and stuffed it into the fridge. Today I split it and topped with some fried apples (think Cracker Barrel apples) and a bit of whipped cream...the cake was still soft and fresh and the whole thing was luscious...I love this mix and am thinking my next next one will be cooked in the Redi-set-go. I've found OMM are of a different texture baked there rather than the microwave, so wonder what magic it will perform with this fantastic mix....thanks again, Ouizie....

I tried this mix this past weekend and I was impressed, loved the texture. I made a cinnamon roll type muffin/loaf and I added a bit of Lorann's Buttery Sweet Dough bakery emulsion and I ate the whole thing. I want to try a blueberry muffin/loaf next.

Has anybody used this in a regular oven?

Redi-set-go is a cooking gadget and since I'm the kitchen gadget queen, I love it. It's one of those thingies that work well for dorms...a kinda baker that comes with a couple of tins so you can make half or small round things. If you check it out on line, you'll get an idea of what it does...kinda like a waffle iron without the waffles...too darn expensive, but a great tool for singles.

I've tried it for the OMM and it comes out more cake-like, so I'm sure Ouizee's fantastic mix will bake up beautifully, too. Was thinking about today, but got sidetracked by a biscuit, so maybe next up day....

Sorry I missed your question. Actually I did not increase the sweetener because I put a mid-layer of mini chocolate chips and then a few on the top.

Because the chocolate chips said no sugar alcohols, I thought I would be okay. But no.... stomach issues, so I won't be doing that again.

I love the flavor of the special dark cocoa and I used chocolate sugarfree syrup to make the dry ingredients into a nice batter, so I don't think I will add additional sweetener into the recipe even without the chocolate chips. I also frosted it, so it was sweet enough!

I did the mix in my Redi-set-go today and wasn't impressed; the mix seems to work better in the microwave...it's a bit tender for baking but I'll try again. Today I added a bit coconut oil and some blueberries, trying for a scone-type dessert, and like I said it was too tender for the baker.

Still a great mix, maybe next time I'll try for the donut hole types, may work a bit better, but fer shur will do the microwave next.

I apologize, I have not read through all of these posts, but has this mix been made into something resembling an english muffin? Have tried the OMM, and other variations and don't like them. I crave a real one once in awhile, smothered with butter and pb, all melting into those nooks and crannies.

Mine have the consistency of cake so I'm not sure these would make a good English muffin substitute. You could still make the original recipe and split it open and spread with butter and jam or peanut butter and it would be yummy.

I have bought the low carb wheat English muffins from western bagel online, they have 11 net carbs per muffin. The plain ones are higher in carbs now. I usually buy 6 packages and keep them in the freezer for when I can afford the carbs.

You could try Ouizoid's english muffin recipe.

I agree with Ginaaaaaa. This tastes cake-like to me.

I tried making a chocolate one tonight. It wasn't as sweet as I would have liked and I used a whole egg, but in a pinch it worked for me lol I just ordered more supplies from netrition including powdered egg whites, sweeteners and chocolate chips. I will experiment more when my stuff arrives!!

I think mine was sweet because of all the sweet cream cheese frosting I ended up putting on !

Yup, I didn't put any frosting on it but when I get my supplies I will try making some. I didn't have the right sweeteners tonight.

It tastes great. But the texture is a little dry. I might try adding some oil next time.

Just curious how you made yours. Mine is never dry unless I overzap it in the micro. I add Davinci sugarfree syrup to my dry mix. It takes quite a bit due to the coconut flour. It adds sweetness too. It's so interesting how products we make come out so differently. Let us know how it goes with a bit of oil added.

That what happened to me too, I've been adjusting the time to find the right number on my microwave and for me it's about 2 min 35 sec.. The one time I tried a whole 3 min I couldn't choke it down.

I have thought about adding some coconut oil or MCT oil but haven't tried that yet but I do add a real egg white in addition to the egg white powder. I think it makes it fluffier and adding eggs to cocunut flour is what it takes to keep it from being so dry .

I was out of coconut flour so used 2 TB of cocoa in place of that.. I dont have protein powder so I use almond flour for that. For the liquids I use 1 egg, Some torani choc syrup, and water to make 1/2 cup. And used truvia instead of erith. So it had good chocolate taste and was sweet enough. The frosting was pbutter and butter with 1 Tb powdered ideal sweetener. I think I microwaved 2 1/2 min.

Very impressed with your fabulous flour mix

Want to give you a hug. This is so good and so healthy.
I waited a long time to make it as I didn't have the glucomman
powder. So I thought well, everyone has alread tried it as
cake in the microwave. I want to try it as dense fudge brownies,
made in the oven. So I tweaked away. We have very dark
chocolate baked brownies, that are covered in powdered "sugar."
My Dh wanted the entire brownie pan and the neighbor gave
it her thumbs up. Is it ok for me to post my version?

Fabulous Flour Mix Brownies

FABULOUS FLOUR MIX BROWNIES SF/GF
The original mix was posted by Quizoid. A wonderful
Low Carb Friends cook. She made the formula to have
a nice big filling cake. She bakes it in the microwave for
3 minutes. I decided that because everyone had made it
into a 3 minute cake in the microwave, I was craving
a baked dense fudgy brownie in the oven. So this is my tweak.
*Sweetness is up to the baker.

FABULOUS FLOUR BROWNIES
Preheat oven to 350
Prepare a 7.5" by 5" Pyrex baking dish
Makes 9 brownies

Sift into a medium bowl:
2 tbs. OAT FIBER (NOT FLOUR)
2 tbs. coconut flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbs. vanilla protein powder (I use J.Robb)
1 tbs. egg white powder
2 tbs. dark cocoa powder sf
1 tbs. sugar free cocoa mix (optional)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. glucomannan powder, I use NOW brand (Konjac Root)
*1-3 tbs. powdered (erythritol) (in coffee grinder)
AFTER SIFTING WELL AND MIXING
Liquid and fat:
In a small saucepan place:
1 tbs. butter
1 tbs. oil your choice (I had macadamia nut)
1/4 c. SF Torani or DV French vanilla flavoring
1/4 c. heavy whipping cream

Bring liquid almost to a boil.
Pour over dry ingredients and mix quickly.
Batter will puff up. Place immediately into your
prepared pan. My oven baked it to perfection in
10 minutes. Cool 3/4 of the way. Cut into 9 squares.

While brownies are baking, **grind some more erythritol
into powder. Place powder into a small pan for dredging.
Dredge each brownie into powdered 'sugar' and coat well.

I use an **old coffee bean grinder and it makes powdered sugar
in just minutes.


Options: sf chocolate chips, toasted nuts. Whatever you
can dream up.

I bought coconut flour today. When I opened the can, the coconut aroma gave me the idea to make a coconut cupcake. So I added coconut flavoring and 1/4 c. almond milk to 1 egg and 1 TB vanilla torani syrup for the liquids. Scooped into 3 muffin cups microwaved 2 1/2 min. Topped with whipped cream and coconut! O my. It's almost like Pepperidge Farms coconut layer cake.
