mims?

what do you all think of them? tried them for the first time and they are amazing! but are they stallers? they say its good for induction (but only 1/day).



All About MIMs (Muffins in a Minute)

A MIM (Muffin in a Minute) is a low-carb, high -fiber, Induction-friendly delight that you can microwave in a coffee cup.

Note: All of these recipes use flaxmeal, which is ground flaxseed. If you can't find flaxmeal, buy flax seeds and grind them in a coffee grinder. Milled flaxseed is the same as flaxmeal. In the UK and elsewhere, flaxseed is often known as linseed. Golden flaxmeal is sweeter and lighter than dark-brown flaxmeal, which has a nuttier taste.
Basic MIM recipe

Serving Size: 1

1/4 cup flax meal (8.09 total carbs, 7.6 fiber)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.64 net carbs)

1 packet Splenda® packet (0.9 net carbs)

1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)

1 large egg (0.6 net carbs)

1 teaspoon butter

(total carbs is 12.07, fiber is 8.8; net carbs is 3.27)

Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.

Stir.

Add the egg and the butter. Mix.

Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, butter, eat.

Notes:

* Your MIM can be toasted once it's cooked and topped with cream cheese if you like.
* Be sure to use baking powder, not baking soda. Aluminum-free baking powder tastes better. Be sure the baking powder is fresh.
* Feel free to replace the cinnamon with other spices or add sugar-free syrup.
* Add a tablespoon of sour cream for a moister MIM.
* Change the shape of your MIM by making it in a bowl.
* Try replacing the cinnamon with 1/2 tsp of unsweetened cocoa (net carb count will be higher).
* Make a sandwich MIM by by adding parmesan cheese, garlic powder and some salt and omitting the cinnamon and Splenda®. Use a square-bottomed bowl, then slice and put in the toaster to use as bread for sandwiches and burgers.

I have them on a regular (no pun intended) basis. There are so many versions. I have one in my cookbook that uses banana liqueur that I really like (not induction friendly, though).

Do a search on this board and I'm sure you'll find more than you need.

Love them. Although I only make 2 kinds. Chocolate and Garlic Cheese Bread.
I use half flax, half nut flour and a lot more butter.

Whether it stalls or not, might be an individual thing.

I love love love them. But they stall me, so I have to stay away until maintenance.

I have my version (more complicated, more nutritious (by my standards anyway,) and tastier) for breakfast daily. You just have to realize it's a MEAL and not a snack or an add on. Look in my muffin blog if you are interested in the recipe.

Also, only make one meal's worth at once. I think baking up a big batch would be a portion control issue for many.

In addition to the regularity thing, which is a godsend, there are other health benefits. They have been shown to lower blood pressure in men, not women, so I share mine with my husband even though he's not a low carber. He gets a bit of coconut oil, a high protein breakfast, and other good things as well.

They don't stall me, but yeah, they're a meal, not a snack. Today's was a half flax/half almond meal with added cocoa, peanut butter and cinnamon with Smart Blend and organic eggs.

They certainly are a meal! Make a nice juicy burger with one of those babies and you won't need to eat again until sometime next week.
