Darn. They sound tasty, but I really miss chewy baked stuff on this WOE. Everything I make with nut meals always turns out like a quick bread! Anybody have a tried and true recipe with chewy gooiness?
Those Artisana butters look great. How's the carb count?
Speaking of bread, here's an awesome quick bread made with flax. You can make it sweet or savory depending on what spices and nuts you use. I just made some with brazil nuts and raw sunflower seeds (they turned an unappetizing green color after baking, who knew?).
spongebob's flaxmeal bread (tweaked)
2c golden flaxmeal
1/2c nut meal
1/2c nuts/etc. *
2T sweetener (erythritol, xylitol, etc.)
1t aluminum-free baking powder
1t baking soda
1/4t sea salt
*chopped almonds, pecans, unsweetened coconut, sunflower seeds, etc.
5 eggs (beaten)
8T coconut or almond milk
5T oil (I like mac nut oil)
pre-heat oven to 350F
Mix together all dry ingredients in a bowl, then in a separate bowl, mix all wet ingredients. Fold dry ingredients into wet and mix well.
Immediately transfer batter to parchment paper lined loaf dish. Bake at 350F for 40-45min. or until it passes the knife/toothpick/etc. test.
Cool before slicing. Store in the refrigerator.
Carb count depends on the add-ins, but it's quite low.
