Flaxseed Quick Muffin/Toast (Gluten Free/Low Carb)Submitted by: GFYOGAMOM
IntroductionThis is my go-to breakfast recipe. This recipe is gluten free and low carb/sugar. I like to slice the "muffin" horizontally into 4 thin "toasts" and top them with whipped cream cheese or Polaner Sugar Free w/Fiber Preserves. This is my go-to breakfast recipe. This recipe is gluten free and low carb/sugar. I like to slice the "muffin" horizontally into 4 thin "toasts" and top them with whipped cream cheese or Polaner Sugar Free w/Fiber Preserves.
1/4 cup Flaxseed Meal
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Kroger Zero Calorie Baking Sweetener (Xylitol) or other sweetener
1/3 cup Egg Substitute (or 3 Egg Whites)
1 Tbsp Canned Pumpkin
1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
(Optional: Omit sugar and pumpkin pie spice and add other savory spices, to taste.)
Whisk (I use a mixer w/the whisk attachment) egg until fluffy. Add pumpkin and whisk until combined. I use Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin. Make sure you use pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix. Add flaxseed meal (I prefer Bob's Red Mill Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal), baking powder, sweetener, and pumpkin pie spice. Whisk until combined.
Place container w/batter in microwave for approximately 2 1/2 minutes (depending on the wattage of your microwave). You can eat your muffin directly from the microwave. However, I like to toast mine (whole muffin or slices) in the toaster oven (300° for approximately 6 minutes, turning once). Makes one serving.

cant see how it holds together for sandwiches. the texture is interesting..slimy a little from the egg, but it may go away when toasted in the oven more. - 3/26/11

I have never specifically used this for sandwiches, though I don't believe it would be a problem. I have tweaked the recipe a bit. I would suggest it is microwaved for at least 2 minutes. That could be why yours was slimy. Also, I toast my slices for 6 minutes total, turning 1/2 way through...
