Yes, just add a little. Maybe up to a TBSP of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnimon.

Here is the base recipe and some notes I made for myself after reading about 20 pages of thread on a One Minute Muffin. NOTE: I don't use the splenda. I use stevia to taste.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1/4 cup Flax Meal
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 packet Splenda
1 teaspoon Cinamon
1 Egg
1-2 teaspoons Butter
1.5 Carbs

Melt the butter and all other liquid ingredients, including egg & mix well. Add all dry ingredients and mix WELL. Microwave for 50-seconds to 1-minute. Muffin pops right out. Slice in half and spread with cream cheese and/or butter.

Variations: remember to change carb count

1. TRY using almond flour instead. or 1/2 almond and 1/2 flax for a lower carb version.
2. In luie of splenda try using sf flovored syrups.
3. Add pumpkin and 1/2-1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. Top with cream cheese frosting OR mix a little pumpkin in with the cream cheese frosting.
4. Try cocoa instead of cinnimon.
5. Add Peanut butter or almond butter.
6. Try using golden flax for different flavor.
7. Make in a square container for "bread" sliced in half.
8. Try using a round container for BUNS.
9. Try olive oil instead of butter and omit cinnimon. Add herbs of garlice for a savory bread.
10. Try sour cream or cream cheese or yogurt instead of OR in addition to the butter.
11. Try NO spices or sweets for an English style muffin.
12. Triple the recipe and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes in a muffin top pan.
13. Add a couple of squirts of Davinci's and an extra egg use as pancake or waffle batter.
14. Add a little SF lemonade powder to cream cheese for a spread??
15. 1 TBSP butter mixed with a bit of Davinci's SF syrup for dipping french toast or as a spread.
16. Omit cinnimon, add cocoa & peanut butter. YUM!

OK - so, I've managed not to make this yet. I tried a recipe for flax bread a while back, and I felt awful and was out of ketosis the next day. I blamed the flax - but now, with further experience, I think it may have been a combination of the granulated splenda and a complete loss of control resulting in half a loaf in one afternoon.

I just made this recipe with the flax I nearly threw out, and all I can say is, WOW! I honestly believe I may have found a bread-like object I can love. We'll see if it affects my weight or ketosis, but you're right! This one's a winner!

I just made this using hazelnut meal in place of flax meal, sf vanilla syrup for the splenda, added some vanilla, some pumpkin, extra cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, a dollop of cream cheese in the middle of each and baked in cupcake liners as others suggested and they were heavenly...thanks so much for all the ideas from everyone....

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've seen it before, but never got around to it. I had been under the impression that flax meal didn't taste great, but I was wrong.

We've been making a lot of flax stuff now, and here are my two favorites:

1. Finally, bread (and toast). I can make real sandwiches or hamburger buns with this:



Flax Bread Recipe - Low-Carb Focaccia-Style Flax Bread

2. This is a lot like carrot cake or banana bread:

Banana/Coconut/Pecan Bread

2 cups flax seed meal
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup Chopped Pecans (Roast them until almost burned first!)
¼ cup Coconut Meat (unsweetened)
1 Tbs Erythritol
3 Drops liquid Splenda
2 Tbs DaVinci Banana Syrup
2 Tbs DaVinci Coconut Syrup
5 beaten eggs
1/3 cup oil

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 300 F. Grease and flour (with flaxseed meal or carbquik) a loaf pan.

1) Mix dry ingredients well -- a whisk works well.

2) Add wet to dry, and combine well. Make sure there aren't obvious strings of egg white hanging out in the batter.

3) Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).

4) Bake for about 26 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.

5) Cool

Nutritional Information: Each of 12 servings has less than a gram of effective carbohydrate (.7 grams to be exact) plus 5 grams fiber, 6 grams protein, and 185 calories.

I make mine plain and let everyone add what they want. On one side I use peanut butter and the other, butter/splenda/cinnamon. I swear it reminds me of cinnamon toast Mom used to make when we were little!

OK, so how is it that I have been low carbing for 9 months now and have not made a OMM? Until tonight.....YUM! I couldn't wait until breakfast Will probably make another one in the morning! I used all golden flax meal (all I have on hand), but would probably love it mixed with almond meal.

I have been religiously eating MIM daily as someone suggested for 4 mos. I use mostly flax meal and my body has gotten used to it.
Another thing is I use egg beaters instead of eggs --just easier.
Like others I also make 4 in cups at a time and keep in frig reader to add a little water and stir and pop in microwave. Thanks to the initial posters on this!!!

Beat together and microwave 2 minutes in a pam-sprayed ramekin.
Perfect with butter or a schmear of marscapone...
These sound really good (for when I get to a different phase of HHC), but is there anything I can substitute for the cream cheese? I'm lactose intolerant

PianoAl - thank you so much for the banana bread recipe! I make a loaf 2 days ago and even tho I did not have the banana flavoring and used caramel instead and walnuts instead of pecans it is amazing. Dense and moist and delicious. Love it spread with whipped cream cheese or almond butter. I sliced and froze half so we wouldn't inhale it all at once. Great recipe!

The recipe works fine without cream cheese- just substitute 1 tbsp of melted butter or coconut oil... read up in the thread for lots of variations.

I made one yesterday with just the original basic recipe, but added some lemon extract and splenda - then sliced and toasted - then topped with cream cheese and chia seeds. Enough like a lemon poppy seed muffin that I surely don't care if I ever have another 'real' one.

Ok, does everyone still loose while eating these? Last time I did this I stuck to eggs for breakfast but it did get tiring. I made the original recipe this morning but has coconut flakes to the flax and coconut manna on top when it was hot. Totally filled my belly and kept me full for hours.

I totally stall out completely on these..as well as most faux-carby foods (love the sugar free cheesecakes, and cream cheese muffins, and almond-flour-pancakes, etc. ALL stall me immediately as if I actually ate the carb version.)

Maybe I'd eventually adjust to them, but I just can't stand the ultra-slow-losses that result from all the special recipes. If I eat a minute muffin for breakfast, it can take me as much a 7-10 days for any loss to show up again. That's just not worth the delish taste, IMO.

Have to stick with eggs, and plain meats, vegs, etc.

YMMV, of course. A lot of people do eat these alternative foods, but what I notice is they tend to be losing very, very slowly too. So you might have to choose if you'd like to keep it simple and lose faster...or switch it up & lose more slowly.

Thanks for the response Catne. I am not a weigher so now I am a little worried. I think it's a nice healthy choice for breakfast but how it will affect my weight loss is now a question to consider. I thought that as long as it was legal food it would be ok, makes sense that everyone's body may respond differently. May have to consider weighing my self for a week or so to see if I can see the difference in how fast or slow I lose.
