Thanks for that, sorry I got back a bit late the past two weeks have been hectic. You certainly have been experimenting with it. It is great when you can find a recipe that will let you do that. Must have a go at it.

I just used granulated Splenda (1 c.). I also used 2 T. Torani sugar-free vanilla syrup in place of the 2 T. of water that they used (the recipe calls for 1/2 c. plus 2 T., so that's where I substituted).

I have made this twice now. The first time I used 1/2 c. flax and the rest almond meal. The second time, I used 1 c. flax, 1/2 c. almond meal, and 1/2 c. soy flour. It's a VERY forgiving recipe - both times were great! I made it into 2 loaves instead of the muffins, the second time (I thought the muffins were a bit dry), and the soy flour made it rise more, as one of the commenters had indicated. My husband said the second batch reminded him of carrot cake. We didn't use the toppings the second time, either, because they weren't even needed.

Both ways were delicious, though!

Edit: for carbs, I figured the second batch was around 44g total, and so I just call it good for both batches. Soy is a bit more carby than almond flour, so using just almond flour and flax would reduce it a bit. Each loaf made about 8 squares, however, (I used bread pans and cut 4 large slices, then halved them down the middle) so that means each slice of "cake" was only 2.75 g or so... well worth the experience, lemme tell ya!

Secondary edit: If you try the dual loaf pan method, I would leave it in the oven (same temp) for about 30-35 minutes.

Anasari - I looked at the recipe you mentioned and it looks great, what did you use and quantity for the sugar ingredient:

Artificial sweetener - 1 cup equivalent - zero carb (such as liquid) preferred

Thanks

Update! I tried the (forget exact name) tastes-like-a-donut muffins today. I didn't think they were like donuts. I was thinking more like food of the gods! Oh wow, they are SO GOOD. Do not miss out on these!!!

My family is just planning on grilling hamburger and hotdogs since tomorrow is supposed to be a beautiful day.

So I will just forgo the buns. Maybe I'll get some deviled eggs together.

Maybe I can find a low-carb dessert in my new recipe book that I can make for myself. If not, just some sugar-free jello and a touch of whip cream.

My little granddaughter loves it when me and her Papa squirt RediWhip into her mouth.

Thanks for the low carb breakfast ideas. Kids coming over for brunch Sunday so perfect timing.

That's sweet!

I can truthfully say that nothing like that has ever happened in my house. My DH is pretty much a complete dolt when it comes to these things. All I ever ask from year to year to year is that the three little b(*)%^rds clean the house one Sunday a year and I don't get that either.

LOL! Thank God for FlyLady. In bygone days that kind of stuff used to upset me. I still get my twinges, but meh, it's just not worth obsessing over.

Thank you, Woubbie! What a great idea! I read this funny thing in one of my newsletters yesterday that was a preamble to some other Mother's Day recipes they were featuring, so I thought you might get a kick out of it:

"You discreetly open one eye and scan the room. Maybe if you don't move they will think you are still sleeping. Crash! The door flies open, the scrambled eggs go airborne and you know they have found you out! There they stand in the doorway - your family, grinning from ear to ear. It's another Mother's Day and once again they are treating you like a goddess- bringing you a tray full of burnt offerings (known in our culture as breakfast in bed).

"There's blackened toast, large brown lumps you think may be scrambled eggs, coffee "paste", and oh, are these strips of bacon, beef jerky or dog treats? Then of course you look at their smiling faces full of love and you are reminded how blessed you are. Gratefully, you pick up your fork and start eating. Has anything ever tasted more like manna from heaven?!"
