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.

Notes: 1.5 net carbs.

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!

Default another flax bake recipe

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.
