I had to nuke mine for 3 whole minutes as I live in high altitude country.....I also got the ideas for Lupin from Ouzoid and some one else for the covering with palate in the microwave to prevent the middle from pouffing up and not cooking.
Then I also used almond milk which helped to make it light.
I also used a rectangle glass sandwich storage container with the flip top plastic lid as it was the perfect size to get a thicknesss that when sliced horizontal, and then halfs gave a perfect size sandwich. It does make great toast.
I used extra large farm eggs as that's what is available here in canada from this farm. But I followed the recipe exactly as post 150, except with the subbing out of 2 tsp Lupin flour. Hood that helps.

Anyone come up with a "put it in your purse, grab and go" protein bar recipe with the general idea of this recipe? Doesn't necessarily have to be high fat.

the final slice of the pink lady cake!! It didn't rise much but the texture improved greatly after a day or two in the fridge. Maybe need more leavening due to living at nearly sea level. Put leftover puree into the cream cheese frosting. I think I needed to increase sweetener in the cake and decrease in the frosting.

After reading the OMM comments maybe I even added too much liquid. came out super dense. Used almond milk in place of water and dry milk - seemed to make cake gray. LOL.

SO delicious - frosting was like strawberry ice cream. for (quick estimate) like 5 net carbs a slice! ( 2x 9" layers)

Sorry for late pics - got a new camera right after baking this.

made this again with BTF mix using 100%lupin and pea protein.....plus extra 1/4 tsp glucomannan....so good that I made into cubes and made the best stuffing for my pork tenderloin......I just made traditional stuffing with sage and poultry seasoning, and onions butter, then added my own sweetened cranberries for the pork stuffing.

I never add the baking powder, I always add it in at the recipe level. I basically treat the mix like flour with no leavening.

Thanks for the ratios. I will try this the next time I mix up a batch. Do you think the lupin flour is as absorbent as the coconut flour or nearly so? This has implications for other recipes.

I think it is less, so you have to adjust based on your altitude .i am high altitude so I need a little less , whereas you might need much less. Hope hat helps.

Ok, I just mixed this bread up with approximations, so I will have to make it and perfect the quantities, but we loved this bread. I baked it in my new silicone brownie/bar pan, got 12 buns, butlan to make it in a sheet in the toaster convection for sammies.

Approx measures

3 eggs
1 T. Buttermilk
1 T. Water
1 t onion powder
1 t. Garlic powder
Shakes of Montreal steak seasoning
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
2 T Parmesan cheese from can
Approx 1 c. Mozzarella cheese
About a half cup BTF
Small palm of lupin flour, maybe 2 T
Same amount hi maize resistant corn fiber

Mixed wet including cheese, added dry.

Easy peasy.

Ate with half a hot dog, tasted like corn dog!

Need other tweak people to try.

So good.

DH said it was the best lc bread ever.

About how long did you bake?
Did you bake at 350?

I have a lot of lupin flour and lot of corn fiber (don't think it's hi maize resistant corn fiber) and I'd be glad to resurrect my BTF mix. There are so many good, easy things to be made with that.

Thanks for posting.

When I made it in the toaster oven, I found I had left out 3 oz. Of cream cheese.

And it's too late to edit!

Anyway, I cooked it 18-20 minutes.

I made the sheet of bread in the toaster convection oven. Had sticking issue, so silicone or parchment next time.

link to a really well reviewed thread for multipurpose bread/breakfast item.

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/re...-easy-too.html

so I searched around and found this waffle/bread/bun recipe that I'm going to try with the BTF mix, I predict they will change my life seriously- for portable food like sandwiches this will be effortless and so easy to not give in to the bad stuff when running errands and stuff.

Off to get my waffle maker tonight!

I do make waffles successfully in a Belgian waffle iron. I cook by ear, but do spray my iron very well, and use buttermilk, egg, sweetener, nutmeg, vanilla, and coconut oil. Wish I could give approx. measures, but it's I egg per serving, and about 1/4 c. BTF plus buttermilk and maybe 1-2 T. Oil. Season with sweetener and nutmeg, and a small dash of salt. It's a very stiff batter.

I'm like Sandy above ^^^ I'm getting back on track with LC and I remembered this amazing mix existed.

I think I'm also going to treat it like "flour" (when not using one of the listed recipes).

Very excited

I didn't get around to making my waffles yet but found another recipe http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...g-waffles.html

I will use the BTF mix in this and it sounds ideal....

Please only post written recipes in this thread. Post ideas and suggestions to the original thread and I will add them all here in one post. This will make it easier to find the recipes and ideas. Thanks!!

A Fantastic Flour Mix-ouizoid

Basic flour mixture

2 Tbs Oatfiber
2 Tbs coconut flour (60)
1 Tbs vanilla protein powder (30)
1 Tbs eggwhite powder (22)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder
1 Tbs erythritol (optional)
spices (optional--but is great with pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon)

To this I add a mixture of davinci SF syrup and water or almond milk. My mixture is about 1/2 cup to start, but because of the coconut flour, more liquid may be necessary. Experiment with it.

Fantastic Flour Mix X 3

3/8 cup Oat Fiber
3/8 cup Coconut Flour
3 tablespoons Protein Powder
3 tablespoons Egg White Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Glucommanan

Fantastic Flour Mix X 6

3/4 cup oat fiber
3/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. protein powder
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. egg white powder
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. glucomannan powder

Fantastic Flour Mix X 9

1 cup + 2 tbsp oat fiber
1 cup + 2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp protein powder
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp egg white powder
1 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp glucommanan

Fantastic Flour Mix X 12

1 1/2 cups oat fiber
1 1/2 cups coconut flour
3/4 cup protein powder
3/4 cups egg white powder
2 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp glucommanan
Where can I find the BTF recipe. I've looked throughout the thread but obviously am missing it.

Love the LCF

I guess that could be confusing!
It's that first one:
A Fantastic Flour Mix-ouizoid

Basic flour mixture

2 Tbs Oatfiber
2 Tbs coconut flour (60)
1 Tbs vanilla protein powder (30)
1 Tbs eggwhite powder (22)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder
1 Tbs erythritol (optional)
spices (optional--but is great with pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon)

To this I add a mixture of davinci SF syrup and water or almond milk. My mixture is about 1/2 cup to start, but because of the coconut flour, more liquid may be necessary. Experiment with it.

Ouizoid's thread was called: "A Fantastic Flour Mix"
and the actual recipe is the "Basic Mix".
The whole thing got changed to "Better Than Flour" or BTF because we were all hoping it would get marketed and we could just buy boxes of it.

Thanks so much, JMCM1. I'm anxious to get started. Still putting together an order for Netrition. The only thing I haven't ordered is the eggwhite powder. Do you think that I can use just fresh egg whites?

JMCM1 - You posted a comment about BettyR's waffles sometime back and I found the recipe. She uses 1/2 cup of vital what gluten in the recipe. I was getting ready to order some from Netrition but then I wondered if there were enough other recipes to warrant the cost. Any advice? Thanks so much.

I'm sorry I don't know about using fresh egg whites v. egg white powder. I have a huge huge can from Honeyville that I may have to put in my will. And I use it a lot!
I bet someone else will be able to help regarding real egg whites.

This is what I did in place of the vital wheat gluten, on someone else's suggestion:
replace 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten with 1/4 cup coconut flour + 1/2 tsp. glucomannan.
And those waffles are fantastic - you'll love them.

Hope this helps!
