I dusted my hands with oat fiber and also dusted the plate with oat fiber as mine were pretty sticky. I think if you like carbquick you could use that as well.

I was thinking about buying some biquick to use just a little bit in these for some flavor. I'm wondering if I could add 1 tbsp of bisquick to the mix, which would add about 5 carbs to the whole recipe. I just miss the taste of real dumplings. lol

I never saw either of those movies. LOL

I think the CQ or BQ ideas would work or perhaps oat flour for those avoiding wheat. That might give you the flour flavor you're looking for.

"When I run out in 2044, I will buy the other brand".......you cracked me up Buffy.

Good idea about using oat flour instead of BQ. I just wrote a note next to the recipe.

Sooooo.............I went to buy the ingredients to make these. How come I bought Psyllium Husks instead of Oat Fiber? I knew I was going to do that. I could have swore there was a recipe that I needed PH for? Dang it.

Not trying to thread jack, but can you point me in that direction? Maybe that's what I bought them for. I coulda swore I read one of Buttoni's recipes that had it as an ingredient.

You may have been buying it for the pizza crust. Here's both the tortillas and pizza crust recipes.

Thanks guys. It WAS for Ouizoids Tortillas lol. I remember now because she said she used the husks, not the powder, so I spent 10 minutes looking at the bottles of husks and powder.

Ok now I need Oat Fiber for these darn dumplings!

Make sure to get oat fiber and not oat bran-- the 2nd is way higher in carbs and calories, whereas the oat fiber is very low in both. I got mine from netrition, and am finding a lot of recipes using it now, and it's working really well.

I hate it when I do that! I have a bulk bag of some powder in my cabinet that I did not write on, and I now I dont know what it is, so I am going to have to throw it out!

I wonder if you could use this for something sweet, like a cobbler. My favorite part of a peach cobbler (in my hc days) was the gooey dough inside the cobbler that had absorbed the peach juices and cinnamon.

I don't think so, Yougottaeat. Because I don't think the top of the cobbler would ever brown. Try my cobbler recipe instead and you'll be happier: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...y-cobbler.html

Do you think I could sub Quizoid's fantastic flour mix for the carbquick in your recipe Buttoni? I'm no longer eating wheat. Your cobbler looks wonderful!

There is a recipe for pie crust for using the fantastic flour mix. It's post 293 in this thread.

Thanks, Gina, you beat me to it. I DO think Ouiz's mix might do OK in my recipe. I'm not doing wheat anymore either, Yougottaeat. That's one of my earlier recipes before I shifted to a wheat-free regimen.

What's wrong with the Now brand? I have it in my netrition cart. Should I switch to the other brand? I'm thinking of buying oat fiber too just to make the dumplings. I think DH and DS would love them.

I think they are saying that Misti because once you get it you will use it. And love the product. It does so many things. I've been reading it for a while. I ordered the big bag for that reason. And the oat fiber.

I'm trying to wait patiently.

Peggy! I made your dumplings tonight and they rock! My non-low carbing DH even liked them! Thanks for your great recipe. That's the first time I've had dumplings in 3 years.

I used the NOW brand of gluc by the way, and they tasted just fine.

I'm so glad they came out for you! My non-LC hubby liked them, too. And thanks for letting us know they worked well with the NOW brand of gluc. Good to know.

Oh, good, I'm glad more people are having some success with these now. I'm starting to get positive feedback from readers on my website on these now, too.

I just made them with in a small frying pan with a lid and some chicken broth from my
crockpot..Wonderful...

I Pammed my one inch cookie scoop and it was fast and easy. For my real dinner, I took out some of the broth and will use it in place of the water..Of course, put it in the fridge.

I am using my electric skillet tonight with a lid..

Wonderful, Carolyn. Another successful venture. So glad they worked for you. I made a beef vegetable soup today for lunch with some leftover stewed beef and put some wee dumplings in it. I made a half recipe and dropped a few tiny ones with a demi-tasse spoon into the liquid and simmered 'til done. The soup was GREAT with them!

Peggy, just to be clear: did you freeze the gnocci before or after they were boiled in the broth?

These sound so good but we just can't do grains so the oat fiber is out. Any chance of a sub for that?

the oat fiber doesn't seem to behave like a grain--more like indigestible fiber--
