Is this pancake recipe really 1 carb?
 
I found the following flaxseed pancake recipe on Linda's Low Carb Menu site. I picked up Milled Golden Flaxseed at WallyWorld, 4 grams protein, 4 grams of fiber, made the recipe, and I'm thinking it has 1 carbs, not 2 as she stated.

Super stingy with those carbs. First time I've used Golden Flax, I always used dark, this is SO much better. I've gotta look for recipes!

I'm not new to low carb, just new to this board. I've lurked for a long time, decided it was time to jump in. LOVE these pancakes!!!! :clap:

Splenda has .05 grams per teaspoon, baking powder .05

FLAX PANCAKE

3 tablespoons golden flax meal
1 teaspoon granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 dash salt
1 large egg
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon water

In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and mix well with a fork. Pour into a greased 8-9" glass pie plate. Spread batter to cover the bottom of the pan. Microwave on HIGH 1 1/2-3 minutes, until cooked through but still soft. I flipped mine over after about 2 minutes and microwaved it another 20 seconds to set up the underside better because it looked kind of eggy. Serve with low carb syrup.

Makes 1 serving

With granular Splenda:
Per Serving: 275 Calories; 24g Fat; 10g Protein; 7g Carbohydrate; 5g Dietary Fiber; 2g Net Carbs

With granular splenda, it would be about 2 net carbs, 1 carb from the splenda and one carb from the rest of the ingredients.

Excuding the splenda:
279 cal, 23.1 fat, 6.7 carb/6 g fiber/0.7 net. 10.9 protein

Thanks for the help!
 
I should have known Linda's calculations would be correct. Great recipe!

get the liquid splenda. no reason to have those carbs in the packets! I use EZSweetz available from Netrition.

I make that fairly often for breakfast. It doesn't have the consistency of a pancake, it's firm and flat, but I like it a lot. If I'm really hungry, I top it with an egg over easy.

I've been enjoying that pancake recipe from time to time for a while now.

I cook it in a skillet. It takes a bit of skill to turn the pancake, but I prefer it this way.

I like the egg suggestion, sligh.

I would never make the assumption that anyone's calculations are correct-
I always figure them for myself, using USDA nutrient database values.
(Labels round off way too many numbers.)

I agree. I've been known to screw up now and then, LOL.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies - these are delicious zero sugar, zero carb, and gluten free. Even my hubby agrees!

eggs

Evidently, the word "carb" has come to mean white sugar, white flour

MargD - so happy you posted that you cook it in a skillet. I tried that this morning and I think it takes it from very good to great. Not sure I would have thought to do that on my own.

I agree with your good-to-great assessment. I'm glad I could help.
