The Best Pancakes, Waffles, & Basic Muffin Recipe
 
This is my favorite basic recipe. It will make two medium size pancakes, or 2 waffles or one super large muffin or two small ones. You can adds nuts or fruits or whatever to it if your plan allows. for induction stage simply do not add the carbquik, but as is...it's pretty bomb & only 3 carbs and can be less if you only do 1 tbls of heavy cream & 2 tbls of water instead or heck you can bypass the heavy cream altogether & just use 3 tbls of water! :lol:

1/8 cup (2 tbls) Bob Mill's Golden Flax Meal/Flour
1 tbls Carbquik (optional)
1 pkg splenda
1 capful of pure vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1 tbls of Torani SF Almond Roca or your favorite Torani or Davinci SF Syrup
1 tsp of vegtable oil
2 tbls of heavy cream (optional)
1 tbls of water
1 egg

mix all dry ingredients together then add egg & remaining ingredients. for pancakes heat a nonstick pan or spray with nonstick spray and cook pancakes 2 min each side until dark golden brown.

for the topping i get two tablespoons of butter & 1 tablespoon of my favorite SF LC syrup & heat in microwave for 30 seconds then pour on top of pancakes or waffles or sometimes i just put whipped cream cheese on top. :yum:

cant wait to try these, thank you so much for sharing. Breakfast is probably the meal I struggle with the most.

yeah...i sruggle with breakfast too. let me know how you like it. also, if you choose to opt out of using heavy cream and just use water then i would suggest cooking for a min & half longer on each side, otherwise, you will have wetcakes instead of pancakes. ;)

i thought you might like these. :lol:

you can also swap out the vegitable oil for butter too. that's also really good. :yum:

yeah, i would advise adding some baking powder if you have no carbquik on hand. sometimes i skip the carbquik too & just use the golden ground flax. oh yeah...almost forgot, you can do the muffins in the microwave. no problem. :thup:

i totally love them. i've been eating them everyday for at least the past 3 weeks. :lol: i just restocked today on some more golden ground flax & got some LC SF Mrs. Butterworths syrup. Man! I'm in heaven. :p

Enjoy! :yum:

Thanks, 2007!

Does it really make good waffles? I have been in search of a recipe for waffles, and have not been completely pleased. Pancakes seem to turn out better for me.

Don't know; I don't have a waffle iron. I made these as pancakes. Aren't waffle and pancake batter the same thing?

Sounds yummy to me. You can never go wrong with blueberries & whipped cream. :lol:

I've never tried Bob's Baking Mix. Maybe on my next trip I'll give it a try depending on the carb count. Do you know what the net carbs are for this product?

Thanks. :D

Thank you! I like to have waffles for a change from pancakes or when my family has their higher-carb waffles.

6g net carbs per quarter cup dry mix. Here is the nutritional info:

I made muffins with this mix and while they were good, I think I like your idea of mixing in some Carbquik; this makes a lighter muffin than all Bob's mix, and much better flavor than Carbquik alone.
