I tweaked this recipe a little to make "bread" for sandwiches, mainly breakfast sandwiches. I use: 1 egg 1 T. almond meal 1-2 T. Flax meal 1/4 tsp. "baking powder" *See note* pinch of salt Can add oil of choice or butter if desired, about 1 tsp.
I use a glass loaf pan and microwave on high 1 min 30 sec. Remove to paper towel and cut in half to form bread slices. You can also use any glass dish of the size you want, I used to use 2 square glass dishes and divide the batter. I then toast it to use for my breakfast sandwiches.
According to the data in SP tracker this is 1 net carb for the recipe.
**Note on baking powder-I have learned by my food intolerances that it contains cornstarch, which I cannot eat ANY of. I make my own without starch using cream of tartar and baking soda, 2 parts cream of tartar to 1 part baking soda.
I love MIMs, make them a few times a week. Really get sub for bread. I skip the cinammon and stevia and make it purely savoury, so I can either make mini sandwiches out of them with eggs and tuna or ham, or I spread peanut butter on them (delicious!).

I was thinking about James's pancakes made with protein powder, and decided to try the muffin in a minute recipe posted at the bottom of this thread substituting 1 T of the flax meal with 1 T protein powder. I wanted a more savory muffin so I didn't use cinnamon but instead tried seasoning salt. It turned out good! Also skip the sweetener. I put ham salad on half of it, and tried cheese, turkey, ham and tomato on the other half. Delicious!

Thanks for the reminder KITTYF54, I'm currently doing induction so it's not a recipe I've used for quite some time, but when I looked at the high carbs and low fiber on the oat bran I still have in the pantry, I was shocked. The recipe only calls for a 1 1/2 tbs, but still... I think I'll pass considering they aren't really that good anyway, lol!
SKOEPFLER. be aware that oat bran has nearly as many carbs as oatMEAL not like other brans which have barely any carbs. I always loved oat bran but now that I have diabetes I don't mess with it. always compare the carbs and fiber content to what is acceptable to you. Don't go by the name only.

Sounds good... I have a "pancake recipe" that's similar but uses oat bran and a lot of eggs... I think I'll try that next time I want something sweet in the AM, sounds much faster than the pancake recipe and great for the weekdays... thanks!
2 T flax meal 1-2 T cinnamon (yes, that's tablespoons!) 1/2 t baking powder 1 - 2 packets of splenda, or comparable sweetness 1 egg 1 T butter, soft but not melted
Thoroughly combine the dry ingredients in a small microwavable bowl. A cereal bowl works great. Add the wet ingredients and mix well. Be sure the egg is thoroughly mixed in. Nuke for 1 minute on high.
Now you can do several things with it. You can just eat it as is. You can take it out of the bowl, slice it in half, and toast it in under the broiler (a toaster oven works great for this), then slather with butter. You can toast it and then put some thinly sliced cheese on it and slide it back under the broiler until the cheese melts. You can pour some cream or coconut milk over it and eat it like hot cereal. You can cut it in half and use it to make sandwiches.
If you're looking for something sweet, use more sweetner and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. For something savory, like to put cheese on or for a sandwich, use 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and less sweetner. You can use bacon grease instead of butter, which is good if you're going to put cheese on it. Someone said they added about 1/4 cup of cooked pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice. It's really very versatile.
