    Great with Sugar Free Syrup or Fat Free Cream Cheese.

    Takes a minute to make and cures the sweet cravings...

    You will be amazed how filling this is, I actually have to split one with my husband..
  • I can never find this and I just realized it's because I look for it in Phase 1 breakfasts. I know flax meal is P1 safe so why is the recipe here instead?
  • b/c the serving size for Flax is 1/8 cup on Ph 1
    I triple the recipe and make 6 muffin sized ones
  • it looks like the serving size for P1 is 3T, so 3/4 of a 1/4 cup Thanks for the answer!
  • Is flax meal and flax flour the same thing? Or is the flour ground more? If so, anyone ever try it with flax flour? That is all I can seem to find.
  • I use cream cheese and don't eat the whole thing because of plan one but here is the ni with cream cheese

  • This is good, but the one minute chocoalte cake is Really Good.
    I make it often,
    simply add 3 more T splenda, and 1 T cocoa.
    Tastes fabulous!!!!!!
  • I am SHOCKED at how good this is! But I do really like the flavor of flax, so maybe that's part of it. Wow, I am so pleasantly surprised.

    I did it per the recipe, except using Egg Beaters instead of a whole egg, so the fat is lower. This ends up being less than 200 calories, with 12g protein and 8 g fiber - those are better numbers than most of the nutrition bars out there, and very filling. Here are the stats, without adding cream cheese or syrup or anything:

  • Just wanted to add that I made it again today, adding 1/4 cup mixed berries. It was so delicious!!

    I did have to cook it longer (probably 2.5 minutes total, as the berries were frozen). Also, just blueberries might have worked better - the strawberries and raspberries and blackberries were a little mushy in the muffin. Still delicious though.
  • Anybody know why there is such a calorie discrepancy? one user has almost double the other users stats?

    anyway, tripled this and stored it in the fridge for ultra fast breakfasts. yum!
  • I think the first recipe included cream cheese? I don't add that in mine... and the sodium on that one is 853 mg? That's a lot more than I came up with for 1/2 tsp baking powder.

    The calories I posted above were with using Egg Beaters, which honestly I don't often use. And I might have had Smart Balance *Light* for the more low-cal version, I can't remember... The calorie count on this using a regular large egg and regular Smart Balance, according to sparkpeople is 222 calories (I add 35 extra for 1/2 cup berries.)

  • I just made a savory Phase 1 version of this with 3T flax, green chili powder, some green salsa in the middle and a little rf cheddar on top. I ate it with more green salsa poured over it. Yum. 241 calories according to FitDay
  • Cyn It's also good with Spinach and some LF/FF Feta!
  • I discovered the spinach last week and am now hooked! I mix some thawed chopped spinach, top with melty cheese and serve with extra salsa. It's so good and soooo filling!
  • Tonight I made the basic recipe with a T of green chilis added. Cooked it in a slightly wider bowl then sliced it in half and used as a burger bun (homemade black bean burgers). It was surprisingly solid, worked great. Next time we are going for the whole thing - burger, tomato, cheese. These can handle it.
