    MiM's & flaxseed recipes

    As the MiM's are a favourite of us Atkinsers.. I thought perhaps a thread with all of the recipes for them together would be good as some of you have come up with some amazing sounding recipes & adaptations all stemming from the humble MiM.

    Will post the original from the recipe thread (if anyone has it in UK measurements that'd be fab!!)

    Muffin in a Minute

    1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)
    1 large egg (0.6 net carbs)
    1 teaspoon butter

    (total carbs is 12.07, fiber is 8.8; net carbs is 3.27)

    Great idea! The Miraculous MIM does deserve its own thread.

    From Boardwitless on recipe thread.... hope you don't mind me copying here. Will try & search for others on this forum! x

    'I'm just trying the recipes that you long-termers probably know - I've just made the muffin in a minute, left out the butter and added a bit more Splenda and some cocoa powder (which increases carbs a little) and it's fab!!'

    'Just experimenting now with the muffin in a mug - left out the Splenda and cocoa and added some herbs then sliced it and toasted it, spread with a bit of butter while still hot - lovely!!
    I guess the next step will be trying to turn it into garlic bread...'

    'I'm going to try the flax muffin cooked flat and used as a pizza base'

    'I make a savoury version -
    1/4 cup flax (I guess it)
    1 egg
    baking powder
    herbs
    all purpose seasoning (from herb aisle - contains a bit of chilli, paprika etc)
    Bit of extra water
    I don't use butter or oil
    I either bake it in the mug or tip onto aplate and flatten out to get a base for a pizza, or I toast it.
    Gorgeous - slightly wetter mixes rise better '

    MIM Toasted Cheese Sandwich
    This is amazing.

    I bought some toaster 'pockets' in the Pound Shop. Never used them before!

    I made MIM mixture with a little salt instead of sweetener/flavouring and spread it out in as close to a 'slice of bread' shape as I could get. I cooked it as normal in the microwave. When cool I carefully sliced it in half and filled with grated extra mature cheddar cheese. I then put it in the 'pocket' and popped it in my toaster.

    Out came a wonderful toasted cheese sandwich. Not quite like one made with regular bread, of course, but close enough. This could be adapted to suit almost any filling!

    Toasted cheese sandwich - a tip!

    Make up the MIM basic mixture without sweetener or spices. You can add dried or chopped herbs if you like, and even garlic - whatever savoury flavouring you fancy. Add extra cream or water (or better still, both) to make the mix thinner than usual, so you can spread it easily.

    Then take a square or rectangular lid from a tupperware-type microwaveable dish. Square is probably best. I use rectangular but I don't spread the mix edge to edge, I make a 'square' shape that fits my small toaster. They turn out a little thicker this way too, which is great.

    Spread half of the MIM mixture on the top of the lid, and microwave as usual. When it is cooked turn the lid upside down and just 'pop' the 'slice of bread' onto your worktop or a plate. Repeat this process, letting the second slice cool.

    There ya go! Two nice ready split slices of MIM bread to use in your regular toaster as normal toast, your Breville as a toastie maker, or for slipping into a toaster pocket, ready filled.

    Enjoy!

    Found this on the Atkins website...

    A MIM (Muffin in a Minute) is a low-carb, high -fiber, Induction-friendly delight that you can microwave in a coffee cup.
    Note: All of these recipes use flaxmeal, which is ground flaxseed. If you can't find flaxmeal, buy flax seeds and grind them in a coffee grinder. Milled flaxseed is the same as flaxmeal. In the UK and elsewhere, flaxseed is often known as linseed. Golden flaxmeal is sweeter and lighter than dark-brown flaxmeal, which has a nuttier taste

    BASIC MiM RECIPE
    Serving Size: 1

    1/4 cup flax meal (8.09 total carbs, 7.6 fiber)
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder (0.64 net carbs)
    1 packet Splenda® packet (0.9 net carbs)
    1 teaspoon cinnamon (1.84 total carbs, 1.2 fiber)
    1 large egg (0.6 net carbs)
    1 teaspoon butter

    (total carbs is 12.07, fiber is 8.8; net carbs is 3.27)

    Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug.
    Stir.
    Add the egg and the butter. Mix.
    Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, butter, eat.
    Notes:
    • Your MIM can be toasted once it's cooked and topped with cream cheese if you like.
    • Be sure to use baking powder, not baking soda. Aluminum-free baking powder tastes better. Be sure the baking powder is fresh.
    • Feel free to replace the cinnamon with other spices or add sugar-free syrup.
    • Add a tablespoon of sour cream for a moister MIM.
    • Change the shape of your MIM by making it in a bowl.
    • Try replacing the cinnamon with 1/2 tsp of unsweetened cocoa (net carb count will be higher).
    • Make a sandwich MIM by by adding parmesan cheese, garlic powder and some salt and omitting the cinnamon and Splenda®. Use a square-bottomed bowl, then slice and put in the toaster to use as bread for sandwiches and burgers.
    PUMPKIN MiM
    Fine for Induction; you can count the pumpkin net carbs as veggie carbs

    5 tablespoons flax meal
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 oz softened cream cheese
    1 egg
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 cup pumpkin (canned pumpkin with no sugar added; do not use pumpkin pie filling)
    Splenda® to taste

    Mix the dry ingredients together and then blend in the wet. Pour into a sprayed bowl and microwave for approx 3 minutes. The amount of time in the microwave depends on the kind of bowl you use. This is a big muffin.

    SAVOURY GARLIC & DILL MiM
    1/4 cup flaxmeal (I used standard, not golden)
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    4 grinds of sea salt (maybe same as 4 shakes table salt)
    5 shakes dry dill (maybe 1/8 tsp.)
    1 TBS + a pinch more GARLIC INFUSED olive oil (see below for info) or use 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
    1 TBS Cotija cheese (or any other dry, powdery white cheese; like parm)
    1 egg

    Put all dry ingredients into a cup (or bowl). Stir with fork or spoon to mix ingredients. Add oil with many bits of garlic (or garlic powder). Add egg and mix together thoroughly with fork or spoon.

    Microwave 1 minute 20 seconds.

    Put a good layer of sour cream on top (about the thickness of a cream cheese spread, not over thick unless you love sour cream).

    If making into a sandwich, let cool then slice lengthwise into two slices of "bread". Toast lightly and use for an egg breakfast sandwich or try as a grilled cheese. Good for a hamburger bun or for making a cold sandwich.

    MiO (MUFFIN IN OVEN)
    In a pyrex/anchor custard cup:

    Beat 1 egg
    add
    1/2 tsp melted butter
    1/4 tsp baking powder
    1/4 cup flaxmeal (ground flaxseeds)

    Stir until smooth, then add 1oz of sharp cheddar cheese (or whatever flavor)

    Bake 325 F for 15-17 minutes.

    MIM recipe for quick Bread Slices or Hamburger Buns
    1/4 cup flax meal
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon Splenda®
    1 egg
    2 teaspoons heavy cream
    1 1/2 teaspoon softened butter(add more if you want a stronger butter flavor)

    Optional: Add garlic, onion, parmesan, salt, etc. to kick up the flavor. be sure to add in the extra carbs

    Mix well, let mixture sit for 3 minutes
    Microwave on high for 1:20
    For bread slices, microwave in a square dish
    For buns, microwave in a round dish/bowl
    Slice in half and toast in toaster
    Could also toast in a pan with butter for grilled cheese

    about 2 net carbs

    Rich Cocoa MiM1/4 c flaxseed meal
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1 tbs. unsweetened cocoa
    1 large egg
    2 tsp butter
    2 or 3 packets sweetener
    2 tsp heavy cream

    Mix dry ingredients in large rounded coffee cup.
    Add egg, cream and butter. Stir well and microwave on high for one minute
    Invert cup onto serving dish. Slice and eat with chilled heavy whipping cream.
    About 4 or 5 net carbs.

    Doughnut/Bagel/ Bundt cake MiM variations
    Choose a shallow cereal bowl instead of a coffee cup.
    Mix your MIM batter as usual in the bowl.
    Scrape the batter away from the center of the bowl and place an empty, lidless, GLASS spice jar (don't use anything plastic) in the center of the bowl. Make sure the open end of the jar is pointing up.
    Microwave your MIM as usual, then toast it, butter it, melt cheese onto it, fill the hole with blueberries if you're in OWL or beyond, etc.

    Coconut MiM
    1/4 cup flaxseed meal
    1 packet sweetener
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    2 tbs cream
    1tbs coconut oil unrefined
    1 large egg

    Mix all ingredients as for regular MIM and microwave 1 minute 25 seconds.
    Serve with cream cheese or butter.

    Flaxseed Pancakes
    Makes about 6 pancakes.
    3/4 cup flax meal (24.27 total carbs, 22.8 fiber; 1.47 net carbs)
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda (0 net carbs)
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder (.319 total carbs, .0023 fiber; .3167 net carbs)
    1/4 teaspoon salt (0 net carbs)
    3 packets Splenda® packet (2.7 net carbs)
    1 egg (.61 net carbs)
    1/4 cup heavy cream (1.66 net carbs)
    1/3 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla (.266 net carbs)

    Mix dry ingredients together and mix well.
    Add cream, water, egg, and vanilla.
    Mix well. Add more water if batter is too thick.

    Spoon on greased hot griddle.
    Cook on low temperature until almost cooked all the way on one side, then flip to brown the other side. Takes longer to cook than regular pancakes and will burn if the heat is too high.
    try adding blueberries if you're on the berry rung of OWL.

    Notes:
    • For entire recipe, 29.825 total carbs, 22.80 fiber for 7.02 net carbs for entire recipe (without fruit).
    • If you get 6 pancakes, it's 1.17 net carbs per pancake.
    • When doubling the recipe, 3 Splenda® packets is fine.
    • These can be baked in the oven (325 or 350 for about 20 minutes or until cooked through) rather than on top of the stove.
    • They can be made into muffins if you double the recipe.
    • You can double the recipe (except for the Splenda®) and add 1 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries (18.86 total carbs and 4.18 fiber; 14.68 net carbs), bringing the total net carb count for the recipe to 26.03 and 2.17 net carbs per pancake.
    • Obviously, if you get more or less pancakes, your net carb count per pancake will change
    Single Flaxmeal Pancake

    2 eggs beaten
    2 tbsp flaxmeal
    1/4 tsp baking powder
    Splenda to taste

    Cook in frying pan or griddle same as you would a regular pancake. Tastes wonderful topped with butter

    Fab thread - I've long been a fan of the humble MIM - will try the toasted cheese sarnie in the toaster pockets and also the pancakes.

    One question - I used to buy the flax meal from Tesco in a largeish red & green bag for about £4.30. They only sell smaller bags now in a silver wrapper containing darker flax for around £1.60, made by Prewetts (175g). I preferred the lighter mix - where does everyone else find their flax seed?

    Try Julian Graves, found on most High Streets, or Holland and Barratt, for ready ground flaxmeal or the seeds to grind at home. They do both golden and brown linseed (flax).

    I bought a KRUPS coffee/nut/spice grinder postage free on AMAZON for £19. What an investment! I can now buy the linseed and grind it fresh at home. This grinder produces flaxmeal in seconds! Within one month or much less the grinder will have paid for itself, because of how much I am saving.

    I buy golden linseed in 150g bags from ASDA Online, they only cost £1 each! A real bargain. Tesco do bags of the brown linseed, they cost a little bit more but still cheaper than ready ground.

    You can buy ground linseed from Amazon but the postage costs are very high, so it is not worth it, really. However I have bought this on Amazon rather than run out.

    Once you get into MIMs you enter a whole new world of Atkins. You won't miss regular bread at all because the MIM is so adaptable. When I tried the rich cocoa one I fell THUD in love with the MIM, forever! Ha Ha.

    You can add sugar free syrups or cake flavourings to cream cheese, with a little sweetener. This makes a fab 'frosting' to put in the centre or on top. Bliss!

    Hey guys quick question!

    the linseed that you buy does it matter what colour it is?
    Ive seen really bright golden linseed and brownish linseed..

    I actually found a 400g bag of linseend for 75p in my local asian shops! they were the East End brand! I took it home.. grinded it and tried it.. its bakes in the microwave just like the other flaxseed but im sure its diffrent.

    anyway i got alot more out of it that the 4.99 i pay for flaxseed from holland and barratets! Just gona test it tho to make sure i dont pile any any weight due to it! It didnt really have any nutrition info..

    Wow Sona! I wish I had an Asian shop nearby... That is pretty much unbeatable! The golden linseed is usually a bit more expensive than the brown. It has a lighter taste as well as lighter colour. Some don't like the nuttier taste of the brown linseed but I love it. They are the same carb-wise.
