I went a step further with this recipe. I add a few drops of vanilla extract, a little extra liquid to thin the batter, then I make pancakes instead of the muffin. I eat it with butter and sugar free maple syrup and a couple strips of bacon. Its a great, satisfying breakfast.

Okay. The good, the bad, and the ugly. First, who measures in grams? Using the carb count, I deduced that it would be 1/3 plus 2tsp of Flax Seed Meal. I cut the Splenda in half. The balance of the recipe was followed to the letter. Unfortunately, my microwave wattage must be far higher than the submitter's. (certainly not their fault). I cooked 60 seconds. Mine turned out like a rock. A decidedly delicious rock, but a rock nonetheless. I think anyone who likes nuts of any kind would fall madly in love with this. Because mine was so hard, I sawed it in half, placed a heated from frozen 0 carb sausage patty from Walmart and made a "sausage sandwich". I bet if I cooked it right it would be great. I served it with 2 eggs fried in olive oil and bacon grease. I'm a waste not want not kinda girl so I ate it. In a few days (after I ascertain it's effect on my scale) I'll try again. After all, I have a whole box of flax seed meal to use up. Here's my plan for the future round. "Pull out when i
Okay, this was awesome. I used 1 tbsp. of butter in mine, added extra cinnamon and SweetLeaf sweetener, and 1/4 tsp. baking powder. I can think of sooo many ways to use this! I had to bang my coffee cup on the counter a couple of times, but the muffin did pop right out.. lol. BTW, 1/4 cup of flax seed meal weighs 100g.
I plan to try these this weekend. The calorie count is kind of high, but I will tweak it a bit and see what I end up with. Seems like a good basis for a lot of different varieties. are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I am sure you wouldn't appreciate members going to the vegan recipes and tell you that you are wrong to be vegan.

I think this receipe has way to many calories, I made it but changed some things and got the calories down to 366 from the 430 or so.
These are amazing!! So easy, quick AND taste great. I've been making these on a regular basis. I use 2 equals. Slice it and pat of margarine and it's great. This weekend I made an egg mcmuffin: sausage, eggs over-easy, lots of cheese melted on. Was delicious. Bought cream chese to see what I can do with that. I'll let you know.

These are a tasty replacement for bread but if you're not used to much fiber in your diet these may give you gas and/or loose bowels. Be sure and drink plenty of water after consuming. I have 1/2 one day and save the other for the next day. You can also omit the butter and splenda if you use a liquid sweetener.
