    Hi,
    Ive been experimenting with Flaxmeal and just noticed that this company sell ready made Flaxjacks! They look really yummy!

    I have emailed them asking what the carb content is in them.
    They do lots of flavours, including a low sugar one.

    I'll let you know what they say!

    Has anyone tried them before???

    Sounds lovely - but the golden syrup might be a killer in carbs! :)

    I've never used it but could you not make your own version using Da Vinci syrup?

    Oooh that's an idea - actually you've just reminded me, I've got some frankenfood maple syrup in the cupboard, will try and experiment this afternoon! I'll report back.

    I'm not much of a chef, but might be worth a go!

    Are the syrups quite thick? They might need to be to sort of hold it all together!

    Pretty sure the ready made ones will be too high carb wise, but just keeping my fingers crossed they are less then say 8g!

    Ingredients

    • Oats
    • Freshly Ground Bronze Linseed
    • Butter
    • Sugar
    • Golden Syrup

    -- The ones on the website are definitely not going to be okay. Even if they're less than 20g each, they contain real sugar, which will spike your insulin levels, which will stall most people. The carbs we have can't come from sugar. Flax and butter is all we can have in that list. Interesting to see what legal stuff people can come up with though. I'd skip the syrup, maybe use an egg to bind and use splenda? That way, no polyols.

    As you all know, I'm no domestic goddess but have just tried the following -

    - 100g golden linseed, ground
    - 75g butter, melted (don't leave it too long in the microwave or it goes everywhere, as I've just discovered)
    - 3-4 tblsp maple syrup
    - good shake cinnamon and ginger

    Mixed together and pushed flat into a small square plastic dish.

    It's in the fridge now. No idea if it will hold together - but could be an answer to my 3pm sugar cravings :)

    Luckily I'm OK with malitol - but as Rose suggests, splenda could be a good alternative.

    Forgot to take a pic sorry - the flapjack is like polenta cake in consistency, fudge coloured, quite bland and not as sweet as I thought - so it needs some work. But cut into 6 pieces, and I've had two, and the whole thing is just 0.7 carbs :)

    Sorry to deprive you Michael! :)

    I was just saying on my diary thread that it could be a fab cheesecake base - will experiment a bit more and report back.

    Reporting back hours later - fab cheesecake - I put it on the recipe thread :)
