I find the DaVinci syrup flavors just aren't strong enough to impart much flavor to the bread. I use extracts to achieve desired flavor. The loaves I have made with banana extract and walnuts taste just like high carb banana breads of my past.

Calories?

Anyone have any idea of what the calorie count for a serving of this bread is? I know the carb count is quite low but I am trying to limit my calorie intake to 1,200 calories per day. As I get closer to goal I find I have to be more strict with my daily total intake but I like the "benefits" of eating this bread.

What all different flavors of extract are available? I know about vanilla and have read here about banana, but what others can I get? I agree that the Da Vinci vanilla was too bland for this recipe. - at least to me it was.

Interesting thing about taste buds. It's great with just the syrup to me.

I made this using the 2 cups of flaxmeal, 1 cup ground nuts, 1/2 cup splenda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 5 eggs, 8 tablespoons of spenda syrup and 5 tablespoons oil. Made it into muffins. It was fantastic!!!! Thank you so much.

I use Natures Flavors concentrates. They have sooooo many flavors. Peanut butter to white chocolate to mango. A few drops in a smoothie really pumps up the flavor too

You can do a google search for Natures Flavors. That will probably bring up the site

These taste great. Even DH and Mom like em..

I made the Chocolate ones, using 2oz un-sweetend baking chocolate and 1 1/2 cups flaxmeal and 1/2 cup almond flour. I forgot to add in the oil and I don't think I really miss it. They are still somewhat moist. That maybe because the baking chocolate.

I used a muffin pan and got 12 regular sized muffins and 8 mini muffins. So I did a weigh thing and it came out to right at 14 full size muffins. Froze them once cooled and have been having 1 in the am. Very good

Thanks to everyone for all the great ideas.

Has anyone tried making a cake using this recipe? Like use the chocalate recipe...and bake it in a round cake pan....for a frosting use davinci syrup and cream cheese....

What do you all think? I know the texture isn't exactly the same...but it would be great for b-days.

I've been baking the flax bread in a square pan so far. I just cut it in squares and put butter on it.

My super-duper chocolate one is divine! I made a frosting out of cream cheese and Davinci banana - absolutely fabulous! I used cocoa and baking chocolate - no real measurements - just kept putting it in until I didn't tase the flax anymore.

My next batch will be banana, since I got my banana syrup in today - OMG how wonderful that stuff tastes - I was taking tastes of it all day!

I've been eating this every day for about 10 months and I am finally at goal. I consider it an important part of my fat loss program. The Omega 3 oils in flax improve fat metabolism and this bread keeps me satisfied. I am less tempted to eat things that will stall me. I find that eating 3 pieces per day is too many though.

I Luv this bread and luv the benefits of the flaxmeal too. Hasn't made me stall or gain either. In fact, since school started I've lost weight. Don't know how much but my pants are loose.

I just made this bread as first posted. Its very good! I have been reading all of the different ways everyone is making it and I was wondering how much extract is everyone using if they are not using the syrup? How does the rest of the recipe change?

I cant wait to try some of the different ways everyone is making this bread.

Thanks for sharing your recipes, you all are the best!

I FINALLY made this a couple of weeks ago using DaVinci's Spice blend flavor. Needed to add some 'regular' spices, too. After reading through the last several pages again, I think I'll try it with raspberry syrup and 'berry blast' protein powder (2 carbs/scoop I think). Wish me luck as the first batch, though not optimum due to my choice of flavoring, sure hit the spot for "toast"! Thanks to all for their input.

I found flax seeds at my local grocer but have not found flaxmeal.
Any suggestions? On the package it said that you have to ground it with a coffee grounder. I dont have one and I am dying to make these muffins. Help please

Yeah, flaxmeal can be hard to find sometimes. Now, if I happen to be in my grocery store and see some, I buy it and put it in the freezer. There have been several times that I also couldn't find any.

I shop at a chain grocery store, and I always find flaxmeal. If you don't find it at one store, either call or look around at other stores. Someone is bound to have it!

I always make the microwave version, and lately I've been adding in 2 TB of SF maple syrup. It really tastes good after it's cooled down, and buttered on top. Yum!
