OMG. I tried a pancake version this morning and I swear it is THE BEST thing I've had in a long, long time!

1/4 cup atkin bake mix
1/4 cup flax meal
1/2 cup mixture of sf vanilla syrup, heavy cream, water, sf maple syrup

Nuked for 2 minutes and as promised by Nancy, I had one happy tummy!!!

Heavenly!

Tried a version of the brownie bowl and I know that I'm going to be in love. Of course I read so many of the versions last night when I found the thread and didn't write any of them down that it was just hit and miss this morning but yummy none the less.

1/4 c CQ
1 egg
2 tsp cocoa powder
2 tsp Splenda
water to blend and 2 minutes in nuker

I took a LC Russel Stovers Chocolate (looks like the treasure chest) candy and melted it and used it for a frosting. YUM YUM YUM!!!

Thanks ever so much for posting this idea as I have decided that the day I weigh in I am going to allow myself to go for it!!!

Will post back with any interesting combinations and check back for any new ideas.

The pancake idea is great! I love all the variations people are coming up with. Yeah! I put some SF chocolate in my brownie bowls sometimes! I wonder if there are SF caramels out there?

OK, I have MiniCarb stuff (bought for 50 cents ~ box) up the yazoo. That being said, I used the zero carb baking mix for muffins that DH can take to work. I also eat the muffins I've been experimenting with. For DH though, they have to travel well and these most certainly do. They were moist and good. These would also lend themselves to Potatofree's wonderful cream cheese frosting.

1/4 cup MiniCarb Zero Carb Baking Mix
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
2 Tbs[ ground flaxsee meal
1 egg
1/2 mashed banana
Small handful of chopped walnut meats
Brown Sugar Twin to sweeten
Cream added until batter consistancy

Nuked in heart shaped molds for 2.5 min. Made 4 hearts. These would freeze really well.

Julie, I just read the ingredients listed on my Designer whey protein powder. There is absolutely no mention of lactose anywhere.

A few weeks ago I found sugar free vanilla caramels in my local dollar store - They were made by a company called Asher's (located in Pennsylvania apparently and a "fine chocolate company"). They were EXTREMELY good. Maybe they can be found on the internet? I had never heard of the brand before and really haven't looked into it any further.

Hi lonewolf I kind of just winged this. But I did like it a bunch.

Microwave Low Carb Bowl Cheesecake

Cream Cheese 4 oz
heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup
splenda 1/4 cup
egg 1 each
vanilla extract 1/2 tsp
lemon juice 1/2 tsp

I warmed the cheese a bit and then mixed everything together until it was smooth and then put it in the microwave for 2 to 4 min. You can see the center just starting to firm up. Now here's the hard part. Refrigerate until it's cooled off. I admit I couldn't make it that far. I ate it before it had a chance to cool. Loved it though. Best thing was that there wasn't the rest of the cheese cake calling my name sitting in the refrigerator afterward. Ideally this would be 2 servings. 1 serving being 361 cal, Carbs 5g, fat 33.5g, protein 7g.

And! Thanks Dawna I'll have to pick up some whey protein powder

Just made one of those "breakfast bowl omelets"!

1/3 cup almond meal
1 egg
a little over 1/8 tsp. baking powder
a little bit of shredded cheese
a small handful of cooked bacon pieces

Put a little bit of butter on top after it was done. That really hit the spot!

Thanks so much for letting me know how you made the cheesecake bowl! I'll have to try that one for dessert!

On those Ascher's candies, my local LC/vitamin store carries them. The guy says they are the best LC chocolates out there, though he carries several different brands. They have too much sugar alcohols in them for me though.

I finally succumed to all the hype and joined the cult of the bowl muffin. Wow- I had to keep going back and reading the carb count on the ingredients because I couldn't believe something so full of tasty bready goodness could be legal! I made superaunt's pancake version, and I finally used my Atkins bake mix that I've had laying around forever. I think I'll decrease the cream next time. I liked it, but I used 1/4 cup of cream and the other 1/2 cup liquid was water and the other syrups. Since I gobbled it up by myself, I'm thinking I should probably go easier next time on all the calories from the cream.

So, I have a question. Has anyone tried baking this in an actual oven, rather than the microwave? I know that starts to become a whole lot more like cooking, and less like microwave magic, but I'm curious. Also, I've never used flax meal before- this was my first time. It seems like a too-good-to-be-true ingredient. All it's carbs come from fiber- so it's like, free? Can you eat too much of this stuff? Will it make you get tummy upset or some other bad thing? If it's a free carb, why aren't we putting it in everything?!!

Hehe

Well, I don't know about everyone else and I could be wrong on this one, but I practically do use flax with everything. It's such a great ingredient!! I've even turned my 85-year-old grandmother on to it!! It's such a great, great source of fiber which may be lacking in some of our lc diets. Just be sure to freeze it after you use it so it stays fresh longer.

Thanks for the hint on freezing it- I didn't know that. I'm getting pretty excitied about this flax thing. I just read the thread on flax bread. I can't get it out of my head that this is too good to be true!

It's even better if you grind it yourself. I use the golden flax (just because I prefer the taste). I keep the flax seeds in the freezer. Then I grind enough, in a coffee grinder, to fill a small ziploc disposable container (which I also keep in the freezer). This will last me a few days unless I am using a lot for a recipe.

The already ground flax is very handy, especially if you are using a lot, but I, personally, think that the taste of freshly ground is superior.
