    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

    thanks guys!!

    i tested one mim with the rec above and it was delish!!!
    so i made batter for 4 more.. made them in the microwave 1 min 40 seconds each. In the last one i put a tiny bit of whey powder strawberry flavour. That smelled reallly nice. Planing on using them for brekki with butter or cream cheese!! also can use as a bam with a chicken patty in the middle.. that would be ideal for lunch!

    i cant believe they are legal on atkins nevermind in induction!
    we can defo use baking powder?

    Just yummy aren't they? lol.
    And yes they are legal. Baking powder and all. But take it easy at first on quantity cos I have read on the Atkins site that they can stall some poor unfortunates.

    Let's hope we don't fall into that category.

    Try adding 1 tablespoonful of cream cheese to the mix. This improves the texture. Or try using the golden linseed instead of the darker one. Or both! You can add cream instead of cream cheese, both work for either the sweet or savoury MIM.

    I tinker with the recipe a lot and have found by experimentation that it is endlessly versatile. I rely on MIMs now to provide me with 'bread' and 'cake'. Please don't give up at the first hurdle! Try again hun x

    I love 'em! Really quick for when you don't feel like faffing or taking an age to eat something. I have the golden linseed and have only had them savoury.

    The first MIM I made was savoury. I didn't fancy splenda and cinnamon. I wanted something to use as a bun for fried eggs or burgers, or to slice up and toast, and then spread with butter.

    And boy did I get that 'something'!

    MIM is 'muffin in a minute'. The recipe is in the recipe thread.
