1 tbsp should do the trick.

I've tried adding the PP to both the whites and the yolks. I got FLAT as pancake rolls the time I added it to the whites. So, in my experience, best to stick to adding it to the yolks. BUt maybe it was just me.

Definitely do what's working best for you. Luckiangel, the creator of those lovely oopsie waffles, prefers adding them to the mixture after folding. With the addition of xanthan there should be no breakdown.

Holy cow I love these things. Oh and I bought a hand mixer, you know with a crank. I spun and spun and spun until my hands hurt and then I did it some more until I wanted to snack on this fluffy white stuff I had created.

Cleo I'm glad that you live at a high altitude I can never figure out conversions! I'm in Fort Collins btw!

I made this and I had some batter left over so I threw it in a skillet and the most wonderful thing happened. It became a pancake! Ha!

Do you have to refrigerate them? I have two in the cupboard that I am trying to save for a breakfast sandwich in the morning!

Harkis:
I usually leave them out on the counter overnight so they dry out and do not become spongy. Then put them in a ziploc bag with the bag half unzipped, and store onteh counter for a couple days. After that if you have any left you need to refrigerate them or freeze them.

If they get to spongy you can toast them in the toaster to firm them up.

Yummy- Thanks for the reply! I don't think they will last for a couple of days though... I will open their ziploc bag and let them breathe because the last ones stuck to the bag.

Yes they will stick to the bag if you dont let them sit on the counter for several hours. I found that letting them sit overnight is best and takes away that stickiness.

Hey, harkis! It's always nice to meet neighbors! Yummy's has had the same experiences I've had. They really need to sit out awhile to solidify, and then they're right as rain--but less soggy.

Sorry, just getting here now to respond. I used 2T and I put it in the yolk mixture, then folded into the whites. I didnt want any flavor from the flax, just the benefits..hope that helps! Also, the protein powder addition to the yolks makes for a sweeter type of batter unless you have unflavored. I only use the protein powder for waffles as I find them too sweet for a sandwich type thing.

I like flax seed meal, but it's best when needed and I don't tend to use it on a daily basis. I'd just make a cracker with flax seed meal and enjoy it the way it is.

I believe that Atkins DANDR 2002 says that flax seeds are only okay on induction if you are having constipation issues and then only 1 tbsp a day. I interpret that to mean live without them if you can.

I melted a tablespoon of butter and poured it over 2 of them then sprinkled some cinnamon and splenda on them and added a teaspoon of whipped cream on each. Oh My GAWD! I can now have dessert while non-LC hubby has his! I forsee lots of experimentin' in my future

Thanks,

So, I've read every page of this thread (yes, really) :-) A few people have said that they've broken through a stall thanks to oopsies. I couldn't imagine how that would even be feasible, since everyone seems to scarf them down. I've made several batches, and we can't stop eating them. I've been experiencing "carb creep", and regained several pounds over the last few months, so I was bracing myself for the bad news as I stepped on the scale this morning.

I've lost four pounds.

Cleochatra, you are AWESOME. Thank you.

I forgot to mention that I did some of the recommended tweaks...1/2t xanthan gum added to the whites (double batch), and 2T vital wheat gluten to the yolks. OMG. Sooooo wonderful!

{{{Copper}}} You make me smile. Carb creep happens to me with the cauliflower pizza and lasagna if I'm eating to excess. Every so often I have to reset the mental induction button and start over. LOL (Like NOW).

I agree it's portion control, portion control, portion control especially with the delicious food you've created. It's only one oopsie sandwich a day for me

I made sub sandwiches for dinner on oopsies that I baked in mini loaf pans. I'm happy with the way they turned out!

You can also buy the Wilton mini cake pans (non-stick, they're sold in sets of 3) at places like Michaels, SuperTarget and King Soopers if you can't find the muffin top pans.

The muffin tops make 6- 3.5" buns. The cake pans make 4.25" buns. They're fairly similar in size.
