Question on this recipe. Can I use the flax seed I have on hand to make it? I read somewhere to grind it but I want to double check before wasting all these ingredients.

Thanks,

Cissie

You always have to grind it. That is what turns it into a flour like substance.

Okay I'll try it then. What I have never called to be ground for the other recipes I have made so I wasn't sure if it's the same thing or not.

Thanks

Below is the recipe from the beginning of this thread... My question (before trying to make it), how on earth could you get 8 slices out of it? Also, how could this equal out to the cal. and carbs. listed??

Anyone who has made this please help me out! lol What I have is flaxseed meal and I am going to put it into my magic bullet to make it into flour hopefully.

Sorry for asking so many questions but lately I've made some recipes that turned out so nasty that I totally wasted the ingredients which as we all know are pretty expensive!

Cissie

I make a microwaved bread from flax

1 ounce of melted butter
2 medium eggs
4 tablespoons of flax
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.

Mix together and put in the microwave and nuke for 3 minutes.

I havent tried the bake mixes so dont know how like real bread they are but I find this makes a fairly closetextured bread that tastes to me like wholemeal bread.

On another board a member suggested you could add parmesan and some herbs to make a savoury loaf but I havent tried it yet.

Totally induction legal for Atkins

About 570 cals for the whole recipe - I get 8 slices out of it
Other info - whole recipe has
Total fat 48 gms
Carbs 18gms (including 15 gms fibre) - so only 3 net carbs
Protein 20 gms

She measured the flax seeds as 4 TBS and she put them into a coffee grinder, when done it give about 1/2cup plus 2 TBS of ground flax powder.
Personally I just fill my coffee grinder until it covers the blades and it gives me the approximate amount.

It depends on the size of your container. I make mine in a 4 cup measuring plastic mug, and it poof over the top.

My slices are fairly small, but quite filling! Usually half the recipe is enough to satisfy me with spread with butter and loads of meat inside the sandwiches.

As to the calories/carbs it will depend on the particular ingredients you are using, so use fitday.com or similar to find what your counts will be. Yours might work out more or less - you need to check to be certain.

I use medium eggs, which are 66 cals each, the butter I use has 200 calories per ounce and the flax has about 200 calories for a 1/4 cup of seeds.

Hope this helps.

We must have the same size grinder as that is exactly how high my 4 flat tablespoons are before I grind them!!

Well I made this today with some eggs and bacon and it did hit the spot. I ate the whole thing however because I need the fiber. A lot of calories though 1/4 cup of the meal ground is 3 net carbs and 120 calories so the whole loaf was around 400 calories...

I tried it again today and I added some brown sugar substitute and salt and it really came out fabulously. I get 4 good sized slices out of this. I am using the containers that you receive with the lunch meats it makes it more like a loaf and I slice it length wise. My question is how do I keep it from getting hard until I use it again? THANKS SO VERY MUCH FOR THIS RECIPE, THIS WILL DEFINITELY HELP ME TO STAY ON PLAN BECAUSE I CAN HAVE A SANDWICH!!!

I made the recipe the other day and LOVED it. I am allergic to yeast and can't ever eat the low carb breads from the store. In fact I guess I haven't eaten bread in about 6 months....so it was an extremely enjoyable sandwich!

I used golden flaxseed meal, 2 large eggs, and I doubled the baking powder and turned my loaf into about 4 regular size slices.

I sliced my teensy little loaf, ate a couple, put the leftover slices in a zipper bag, tossed it in the freezer.

Took two slices out the next day and toasted them - delightful!

I used a mini-loaf pan for mine, and it was still only about an inch high. I'm wondering if we could get a slightly larger loaf by whipping the egg whites stiff, mixing the yolks and flax together, then folding them into the beaten egg whites before nuking?

For those of us on Atkins induction it is 'legal' so allows us to eat bread without diverging from the rules of our way of eating!
I notice you are on a low carb plan that probably allows one of the commercially available lowcarb breads made from nut flour or soya flour so you do not have to avoid them like we do on induction.

As to to 'all the trouble' - it takes me less than a minute to mix the ingredients and another few minutes to microwave it, so is a quick and easy recipe for me!

Just wanted everyone to know that I am addicted to this flax bread recipe. I made a loaf everyday and cut it in four slices. I make it in a large mug and it comes out round. I eat two slices toasted with cream cheese, cinnamon & splenda. Yummy!
So did I get the carb count right? 3 for the whole loaf?
