Ken,
I think another bake mix would work cup for cup, it just might have a different taste depending on what your mix is made from. HTH

Thanks Jaideyes

This reminded me of my Fiber Pancake recipe
(doesn't call for Carbquik though, and uses much more syrup),
but it's what I use for McGriddles.
Anyway, I love using Carbquik (love that fiber! - though not nearly
the fiber that's in the other recipe) so I wanted to try this.
McGriddles are a lot sweeter than plain pancakes.
They have the whole serving of syrup already baked in
(I guess so you can eat them in the car, without worries about drips on
your clothes when you get to work?).
So anyway, I took your idea for the pancakes, and added a bunch of
syrup, and got a much sweeter version; still not as sweet or maple-y
as the original McGriddles, though.

I used:

1 cup Carbquik
1 cup flax meal
1/2 stick butter, melted
4 eggs
1 cup Atkins pancake syrup

Mix and fry as stated in original directions.
I didn't use the golden flax meal; I don't have any aversion to it but it
would involve a trip to the store, and it's 9 degrees here today.

Yeah, I quadrupled it the first time out.

I love the Atkins, Davinci, etc, syrups for the very reason that
most people don't: they are thin and watery and can be substituted
for water or another liquid in recipes.
(Here, it's subsituted for the milk.)

I got 32 out of the quadrupled recipe, so I fried up 16 sausage patties
(which worked out well because that's all I had left in the freezer)
and made sandwiches out of it all (I can eat sausage with the sweet
maple-flavored pancakes, but not eggs or cheese- it just feels wrong),
wrapped them individually and threw them in the freezer.
I figure I can grab one out of the freezer and by the time I get to work,
it will be thawed, and I can just microwave it for a minute to heat it up.



Per sandwich, I got:
266 Calories; 23g Fat (72.6% calories from fat); 11g Protein; 8g Carbohydrate;
5g Dietary Fiber; 55mg Cholesterol; 102mg Sodium

A happy surprise is that it turns out to be Banta-friendly!

I'll try these this weekend.....hope my flaxmeal is still good; kept it in fridge. I'll sub LF buttermilk for Hood's.....I'm lactose intolerant so LC milk is of no use to me. It would be nice to have pancakes/ also I think an unsweetened version might work as English Muffin substitute to make eggs benedict!

Banshee5,
I wonder if you could have the Carb Countdown after all. Isn't the lactose, (milk sugar), what gives milk its carbs? I assumed they must reduce the lactose in Carb Countdown to get the carb count so low. I could be way off though... My DD used to be lactose intolerant, but thankfully, she seems to have outgrown it at 16, but still drinks Lactaid milk as she prefers the taste.
BTW, I tried the McGriddles this morning as a breakfast sandwich with sausage and egg. It didn't seem right to put cheese in it with the maple flavoring, (though I do know people who love cheese dipped in syrup ). It was very good, but I'm used to having 2 eggs, so we'll see if it keeps me full till lunch!

Thanks for asking....I already checked their website and Carb Countdown is not lactose free....if there is enough milk sugar, I'll still be ill I find I can tolerate buttermilk....I never drink it...but I'm OK with it in recipes.

I think Hood's is $$$ too??? I buy dried buttermilk so it keeps forever...I just add water to make what I need.

Thank you Jaideyes for posting this recipe!

I am going to try these this weekend. I like the idea that they can be made ahead and frozen for a quick breakfast.

I was going to try making some McGriddles this morning and fried up the griddle cakes yesterday to save time. I think I shouldn't have thinned down my batter because, although they'll be fine as pancakes, I think they'd be too thin and floppy for sandwiches. I added 2 extra tablespoons of water to the original recipe because the batter seemed too thick. I suggest not thinning it if you want thick pancakes. I got 7 out of my batter. Here's a picture of them:



I used regular flax meal because that's what I had on hand. It does give them a slight grainy flavor and color.

I'm glad that these turned out to be so good. Made a mistake when first mixing them up and put in 3 Tablespoons of melted butter instead of 3 teaspoons so ended up making a triple recipe. Got 20 just the right size for a sausage patty sandwich griddle cakes. Guess breakfast is set for a few days any way.

LOL

I added 1 teaspoon of maple extract... that really added that syrup taste. And I used about 3 Tablspoons of Granular Splenda.

I make them ahead... toast them and add butter when I want one.

The best on the road breakfast!!!

These are fantastic! I wanted something a little different for breakfast this morning and tried them. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of Mexican vanilla and a little over a 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, yummy! Oh and I did add more liquid to get a thinner batter. And I didn't have the SF maple syrup so that was left out.

My recipe made 4 really large pancakes. Next I make these, I'll keep my pancake smaller (English Muffin size, then I think it would make 8 total)........they didn't "set up" as fast as regular pancakes so when I went to flip them, they split in two. LOL

I had two for breakfast with just a little butter and 2 scrambled eggs and 2 pieces of bacon and it made a very nice breakfast. The others I'll have sometime next week and heat them up in the toaster.

Thank you Jaideyes for the recipe and thank you Linda Sue for the carb count!

I have made these a couple times and they don;t come out as fluffy as they should. I don't know what I'm doing wrong as I'm following the recipe exactly as listed, but oh my goodness they taste great! I still add ham, egg, and cheese in between and just eat with a fork. It is soooo good and so filling!. You have to try it!

Mmmmmm, these look good!!!! It also looks like these will work into my week 2 induction on the 72Atkins plan. I need to get some of the golden flax seed, your recipes always look so pretty and appealing and I know you prefer it.

Okay - These Are Awesome

I just made a batch but I only got 6 so I will experiment. I just love the golden flax flavor and could just eat these with butter. I also used a tsp of maple extract.

This recipe is a KEEPER
Thanks for sharing!!

I've been mostly lurking the past few months, but just wanted to say that I ADORE this recipe. Had it for b'fast the past two days and I was still full LONG past lunch time and was able to get by with just some celery and cream cheese. And another nice benefit was that it made me very thirsty so I got a boatload of water in to boot!

WONDERFUL recipe....thank you!!!

I just made these last nite and DH and I LOVE THEM!!! I made them with a fried egg, slice of deli ham and some shredded cheddar inside and they were so good! I made extra and wrapped them up in the frige and DH ate one for breakfast this morning by just zapping it in the microwave for a bit. The first pancakes I made using the recipe from the Carbquick box SUCKED. We threw them away. But these little gems are a keeper. Thanks so much for this recipe.

I just made these and only got 4 out of the recipe. They were about the size of english muffins. Was my batter too thick? Also, what type of oil should these be fried in? I used canola oil thinking it didn't have much flavor...but, all I could taste were the pancakes. I put ham/egg/cheese on mine and couldn't taste those things at all.

These are delicious.

Baked one, then cooled it and toasted to get the texture of bread for a hamburger bread.

My world is complete now
