    Has anybody tried a MIM recipe that would come close to a cheddar biscuit at Red Lobster??? Not sure if that's a good idea for me though....could be dangerous!

    I grind my own flax seed in a cheap coffee grinder. I try to keep it on the chunky side - so it has some 'tooth' - fine flax meal is a wee pasty :)

    Today's MIM

    Basic Recipe ~ Using golden flaxseed +

    quarter cup chopped fresh blueberries, quarter oz chopped almonds, T softened cream cheese, stevia rather than splenda. Microwaved in small buttered bowl. Not as cute as brown flax version made in small coffee mug. Plopped out round side up! Fun to have something other than eggs ;)

    Make sure that the grains are at least "broken" or the flax seeds will just travel through your gut and come out the same way they went in! :wink:

    Ok, so I'm hooked on these babies now, lol. Has anyone made one with almond meal and if so, was it better/dry/worse/moist/carbier? Was just thinkin it could be a nice treat now induction is over :)

    You need to do a 1:1 ratio, so 1/8 cup of flax meal to 1/8 cup of almond meal. It makes it more "cake-like".

    Made my first MIM tonight (savory with rosemary, topped with butter), and it was HEAVEN! Mmmm.

    I haven't had bread in what feels like forever and was craving it BAD, and I wholly credit the MIM and Laura with saving me from a bad-carb-induced tailspin this evening. :) Thank you.

    I have a recipe for Flax meal Foccacia bread. I keep it in a container in my frig. It is my bread go to!

    Hello,

    I've just started the induction phase of the New Atkins (after a crippling migrane yesterday, detoxing from sugar, I'm on my way to ketosis :) ).

    Providing I keep within my 20g of carbs a day, does anyone know if I am allowed these while in induction? Previoulsy the Akins told you to stay away from anything but pure protein and green veg for the Induction phase....

    Am really looking forward to trying the savoury version tonight - just back from Holland & Barrets getting the Flax seed!

    Thanks!

    MIM are completely induction friendly as long as you stick to the original recipe and don't try to add too many "extra" ingredients that are more appropriate for the later phases.

    You have to grind the flax so it looks like flour or the seeds will just pass straight through you - they also don't 'absorb' any liquid so you wouldn't bake as such. I buy the seeds in bulk and use a coffee grinder to mill them when needed. You can buy them pre-milled though but I think this is more expensive.

    HTH :)

    Thanks for the recipes. I'm not usually big on replacing bread type products, but it might be good for a special treat. (Minus the splenda for me, and maybe a tad of maple sugar or honey instead).

    I typically make low-carb muffins out of almond flour and they have a lovely nutty taste as well as lots of calcium, but flax has the omega 3 fatty acids. I will try to make a half-and-half flax meal/almond flour and see what happens!

    For any of the sweet varieties, try taking a tablespoon or so of cream cheese and sweeten it with your sweetener of choice (I used about 1 packet of splenda). Mix the sugar and cream cheese well and drop the ball into the center of your batter before you microwave it. You'll end up with a creamy cream cheese center, much like the cream cheese muffins you get at the store! I did a chocolate MIM with the cream cheese center and I'm hooked! Next I might try it with a blueberry variety.

    Yum!

    Haven't made these in so long! Version I used had just a teensy bit more oil. I made mine up in single serving casserole dishes, so they were about the size of English muffins. They worked great for breakfast sandwiches! Going to have to try the chocolate version using ixchel78's suggestion. Those sound simply wonderful!

    I'm going to have to try this. Although I have not been having bread cravings, it looks like a great way to get fiber back into my diet. I am not big on vegetables (working on it.....slowly).
