    Just found this and thought I'd share:

    Muffin in a Minute

    allowed on Induction

    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.

    Then add the egg and the butter. Mix.

    Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, butter, eat.

    Cream cheese would go nicely, too.

    The shape of this can be changed by making it in a bowl.

    It can be "toasted" once it's cooked.

    The cinnamon can be replaced. I would imagine that any sugar free syrup could be added.

    Many people count the flax as a carb/fiber wash, so then the net carbs would be 2.78.

    Just made some flax bread...its in the oven...will let you know in 20mins...

    Flax Foccacia
    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook Time: 20 minutes
    Ingredients:
    · 2 cups flax seed meal
    · 1 Tablespoon baking powder
    · 1 teaspoon salt
    · 1-2 Tablespoons sweetening power from artificial sweetener
    · 5 beaten eggs
    · 1/2 cup water
    · 1/3 cup oil
    Preparation:
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare pan (a 10X15 pan with sides works best) with oiled parchment paper or a silicone mat.

    1) Mix dry ingredients well -- a whisk works well.

    2) Add wet to dry, and combine well. Make sure there aren't obvious strings of egg white hanging out in the batter.

    3) Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.)

    4) Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).

    5) Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.

    6) Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want. You don't need a sharp knife; I usually just cut it with a spatula.

    At 12 servings, each piece of bread has less than one gram of carbohydrate -- .8 to be exact -- plus 5 grams of fiber.

    The flax seed bread is gooooooood! [​IMG]

    I ground some cumin seeds and added a clove of crushed garlic to mine and omitted half the sweetner...I'm sure you could make all sorts of adjustments and find something really yummy

    Just had a thought...its such a good texture that I think if you added ground ginger and a bit more sweetner you could end up with mighty fine gingerbread...top that with some cream cheese...I feel a days baking coming on :)

    Absoutely...I was driving myself mad, couldn't find it. Then I realised it was linseed...its horribly expensive to buy the meal, so you buy the seeds (relatively cheap in Julian Graves) and grind them in the coffee grinder.

    Oh that sounds gorgeous I love flax / linseed :) The only thing about the coffee grinder is that the heat of it kills of the goodness of the oils contained in them which is why the prepacked stuff usually says they they are cold milled. But you do still get the fiber goodness, I'm going to save that recipe for when I am off CD :)

    in that case I'm going to google flax/linseed meal ... I'd like to keep the goodness (but to be honest, I'm prob. getting enough from other things I'm eating during the day)

    ok, I've done some research and the recommendation is to grind our own with a coffee grinder - as and when needed. The oil in ground flax seed would go rancid if left for later use.

    Not read about "heat" from coffee grinders.

    A good idea is buying Whole Flax Seeds and grinding them into a course powder in a coffee grinder or food processor. When buying flax seed capsules look on the label for "cold pressed", "expeller-pressed" or "fresh pressed". Flax seed regardless of the form used, is best kept in the refrigerator. This is from : http://www.flaxseedshop.com/content/Whole-Flax-Seed.asp

    My seeds are now in a jar in the fridge ready for the next batch. I think a pack of the linseed meal in sainsburys was something like £9.50 - too pricey for me, so I shall continue to grind :)

    Wow look at your loss following Atkins - was that straight from CD with no eating in between or anything?
    I am finding the not eating becoming really hard and now that I've 'broken' the diet a few times, it sort of becomes easier to stray off the straight and narrow next time (bit of self sabotage i guess). I fancy starting Atkins - specially if the losses are like that! Well done you!
