Mine is just 234. But, I probably add about 100 calories worth of cream cheese. But, that's still not 500. How do you make yours?

605 calories for one of my more "decadent" MIMs (for when I know I'm not going to eat most of the day) -- coconut, almond, and cocoa. That's BEFORE the cream cheese... but only 5.76 net carbs.

I made one yesterday with bacon grease instead of olive oil or butter, bacon bits and cheddar cheese. I didn't track it, so I still don't know the calories.

I didn't need any cream cheese on that one. It was good. Very good!

I keep toying with the idea of making a grilled bacon and cheese MIM sandwich. Definitely wouldn't need cream cheese for that one. Maybe a little bit of ranch dressing for some tang to it. Might do that for dinner tonight if the hubby does't come up with something first.

I bet that was yummy..gonna try it

all fat has the same calories.

I like to add whipping cream (already whipped) with some raspberries..nice and fluffy.
I started adding soy preotein for a bit more protein but I really do like the yummy MIMs the best.

how do they ever get to 500 calories or more for 1 MIM??

I made a mim one day and ate tuna salad on it. I don't think it worked out very well. The mim overpowered the tuna salad. I think I need those oopsie rolls for tuna salad, but I don't like making them.

Are you using 1 teaspoon of oil/butter or 1 tablespoon?

1 tsp is enough. I started out using 1 tbs accidentally, but it should just be 1 teaspoon of oil.

I only use 1/2 TSP not TBSP of butter

1 serving One Minute Flax Meal Muffin
1 large egg
1/2 tbsp butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 dash salt (OMIT)
1/4 c ground flax meal
1 serving 1 packet Splenda
1/2 tsp baking powder

There are 467 calories in 1 serving of One Minute Flax Meal Muffin.

ranchgirl, that is how I so mine and probably the others on here too. It does not come oup to 500 cals. If that recipe was submitted by someone they mmight have gotten the infromation wrong. Try putting your ingredients in one at a time and see what you come up with. You can always delete them when you are done. Debbie

Ranchgirl, thers is a miscalculation in your flax meal, it says something like 300 calories in your recipe but 1/4 cup of ground flax meal is only 120 calories in reality, so if you add one egg, 78 cals for 1 large and i can't remember for butter but calculating everything it adds up to only 250 cals or so.

I came up with a really light MIM:

1/4c ground flaxseed meal
2 TBSP 100% liquid egg whites
1/4 tsp baking powder (if desired, can be omitted too)
1 tsp of sweetener (I use xylitol but Splenda works too)
Dash salt
Shake of cinnamon (optional)


Variations/additions I've tried:
Vanilla extract
Unsweetened cocoa powder
sugar free maple syrup
peanut butter
sugar free fruit preserves

This morning, I made my MIM with no oil. It was just as good as the others I've been eating.

(I'm not trying to do lowfat Atkins. I just would rather have more cream cheese and less oil!)
