For McGriddles lovers (w/pic)

These are so delicious and perfect for LC "McGriddles" with egg, bacon, sausage, ham, cheese, whatever. Also heavenly smeared with butter and LC jam or cinnamon/splenda.

Hearty Griddle Cakes

1/4 c Carbquik
1/4 c Golden flax meal
1 pkt Stevia Plus or other AS
1 t vanilla extract, or SF Maple syrup, or any flavor Davinci
1 egg
3 t melted butter
(about) 1/4 cup Hood's Milk

Mix together well, and fry 'em up

YUM!

Wow! Those look really, really good! Does the flax meal have to be "golden flax meal"? I usually just get the Bob's Red Mill kind and I'm not sure if it's golden or not.

I really *love* using golden flax meal in recipes, it gives such a delicious mild taste, and lovely nutty texture.
I'm sure the regular flax would be tasty too, like buckwheat. Let me know your results with it!

They have a subtle sweetness, using the SF Maple syrup really mimics the McGriddles. Of course, adjust to taste, even the batter is yummy

Wow, these look like the real deal!

Can't wait to give them a try, it will have to wait a couple of weeks though, I am going back to induction levels for a few weeks to hope to get things rolling downward again.

Thanks for the great recipe.

Those look great! I love McGriddles, but after looking up their nutritional info I nearly fainted. These will be a great substitute. Thanks!

This was my breakfast this morning!
With about 2 t of SF Maple Syrup added in this time, and YUM!
Way better than the drive-thru, and with all the fiber and protein, kept me FULL for a very LONG while



Linda, it made 8, similar to McD in size).

1BellaDonna, McGriddles are maple flavored pancakes made into a breakfast sandwich with sausage, or ham/egg/cheese, etc. at McD's.

So glad you're enjoying these!

I'm sure any packet of sweetener would work, or you could leave it out, and just go with the Davinci's or SF Maple.

To insert pictures, first host the picture online, like at TinyPic, then when composing your message here, use the IMG button to put in the URL that TinyPic gives you. That places the pic in your message body.

Thanks, Jaideyes. I've never seen the McDonald's ones. Would you say they are about the size of an English muffin or a bit larger? The sandwich idea has got me thinking. I also think my husband would love that ham, egg and cheese thing for breakfast sometime.

I've got regular flax seed that I've never opened or used. It looks like dark brown seseme seeds. Is that the ingredient you are referring to? Your picture with the egg, cheese and ham is to die for!!

Stewcarol, the seeds you have can be ground up to make flax meal, or you can buy the already ground kind. I used golden flax meal, from my local Whole Foods market. It is lighter and milder flavored than the regular flax meal.

LindaSue, thank you for doing the nutritional info!
The griddle cakes were about 3.5 in across, looked about like an english muffin in size.

I made mine with sausage this morning, really good mmm

Here's a pic of the McD ones:

For those of us in Canada....

who can't seem to get low carb milk ( or any dairy for that matter where I live..grrrr) do you think half heavy cream and half water for the milk part would work?

Thanks for such an awesome recipe!

One more question...has anyone made them and frozen them for making quick breakfasts later on? (not the egg/cheese/sausage/bacon part..just the mcgriddle part)

OK..I lied..a second question...think atkins waffle/pancake mix would do in place of the carb quick?

I will be making a ton of these for my freezer stash thanks.

One ? how did you get your egg so perfectly round in shape? do you have a gaget? I'll have my hubby cut a steel circle for me and I'll just spray it with pam before adding my egg.

Take an empty, clean tuna can, cut out the bottom and use that to get a round egg, or as a mold for the pancakes. (Thanks to Alton Brown for that idea originally!)

That's a great idea and I think I saw that show where he did that. Hubby said he will make me one with a tab attachment on it so I can grab it with my tongs and lift it off the egg easy.

Skipped this thread in search of pancake recipe!

I just found on the pancake thread that a "McGriddle" is a pancake! I thought it was an egg mcmuffin variation or something! LOL! Haven't been to McDonalds in years

Thanks for posting the McDonald's photo, Jaideyes. Your version looks so much more appetizing. There's just something so wrong about eating food with letters on it and eggs that are square and can be folded up, LOL.
