Yes, ground flax is allowed on Atkins Induction. Here's a great recipe for muffins:

Muffin in a Minute (suitable for Induction)

Serving Size: 1

1/4 cup flax meal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 packet splenda packet
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large egg
1 teaspoon butter

Put the dry ingredients in a coffee mug. Or a bowl for a different shape.

Stir.

Then add the egg and the butter. Mix.

Microwave 1 minute (or more). Take out. slice, butter, eat. Set mug to soak immediately.

Cream cheese would go nicely, too.

I apologize, I really don't know about making this in a disposable cup...I got the recipe from another site.

I make mine on a double recipe, throw in a T of left over squash or mashed cauliflower and microwave in a ramikan that makes about a 5" round loaf. Easy to slice and toast. I don't mind them cold so I make up 3 (which is 6 muffins made on the double) and put them in the fridge so I have them for using for a lunch sandwich or for toast at breakfast. (Adding the extra T means you need to add minutes to the cooking time. A double recipe takes 2.25 on high in the microwave.)

I should add that adding feta cheese instead of the mashed veggies makes the bread smell heavenly when you toast it! :)

I am totally gonna try that! It sounds amazing!

I have only been on this lifestyle for 2 days and I love it! There is really nothing, like Tim said in another thread, that cannot be adapted to Atkins!

Here is another recipe that I found on Linda's low-carb. Its for Flax sandwich Buns:

http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/flax_sandwich_buns.html

For some reason it has not been starred as "Induction appropriate," but looking at the ingredient list I can't see why not (maybe you all can render an opinion on this).

I haven't tried it yet- I will though in the next 2-weeks and I'll let you know how it goes.

I've tried the flax sandwich buns- its OK. I think that the recipe has a bit too much onion powder in it. I will try it again with less onion powder this time.

I tried the flax pancakes on atkinsdietbulletinboard.com.

Delicious!! If you miss pancakes, google the recipe and try it. Pour on some DaVinci syrup or sugar-free maple syrup and your good to go!

I'll have to look for that recipe, Shauna. Thanks. I made pancakes at the weekend with almond flour that were pretty good too. Hubby wasn't too struck on the grainy texture though, so flax might suit him better.

My variation of MiaM.

This is not an induction-friendly recipe, but it does make a tasty addition for OWL. :T It can easily be tweaked for induction though.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y264/FishPiccies/IMG_6255.jpg

⅛ cup (2 T) golden flaxseed meal
⅛ cup (2 T) whey protein isolate
t baking powder
t onion powder
t garlic powder
1 t butter
1 egg*
oz (15 g) grated full-flavoured cheese

*I have an allergy to egg whites, and hubby thinks the original recipe is too eggy anyway, so I use only one egg for two muffins. I find I can just tolerate the egg without getting sick. I make up the volume with chia gel**, and I'm really happy with the results.

**Chia seeds added to water make a gel that can be used in all sorts of ways. I get mine from Superseeds Organics (http://www.superseeds.ca/ss1/index.html).

That muffin recipe just saved my diet.

I'm only on day 5 of induction, but got home late tonight after parents' evening at my daughter's school, feeling too tired to face cooking or eating much.

The disposable cup would melt into itself.... it is plastic.... it is NOT made for Microwaves :)

tried it today, was quite enjoyable. My package of flaxmeal states there are 4 carbs, all from fibre in each 2 tblsp!. So I am wondering how that will help me with my regularity. Have been suffering with constipation, so was glad for this recipe. I mixed it in a bowl and sprayed the cup with pam. worked great. could eat this regularly.
thanks Kim, you are a great fount of knowledge

I've made the 1MM with almond flour instead of flax, and put in some oregano/italian seasoning. It was pretty good made in a tupperware container and then sliced in half like bread with salami and mustard, not amazing though.

When we travel I always liked eating egg mcmuffin for breakfast so I decided to make a similar thing with the flaxmeal 1 mm and it was pretty good. I think it would also make a great ham sandwich.
