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!!!!

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!

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!
Clicked through to the website; these are the ingredients:

Quote:
eggs
banana
almond butter
Real Vanilla Extract
coconut flour
sea salt
stevia or honey
coconut milk (full fat)
baking soda
chocolate chips (enjoy life)
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.
