Default stuff to do with almond meal and flax meal

I posted my cereal recipe on asd recently. It's a mixture of 2 cups
almond meal, 2 1/2 cups flax meal, 1 3/4 cups raw wheat germ, 2 cups oat
bran, 2 1/2 cups milk isolate protein powder, 1 cup soy lecithin, 1 cup
cinnamon (approximately 1/2 lb of first 5 ingredients, 1/4 lb of last 2
ingredients). Store tightly covered in fridge. As needed, mix 3/4 cup
dry cereal with boiling water to desired consistency; then stir in 1 TB
of heavy cream. 28g total carb (lots is fiber though), 23g protein and
350 kilocalories.

I got thinking about what else I do with these ingredients. I use
lecithin in protein powder shakes also; it's an emulsifier. Probably
could us it for making mayonnaise too, now that I think of it. But I am
mostly a lazy cook, so I don't make my own mayo.

I sometimes see recipes for wonderful pastries made with almond meal
and/or flax meal, sometimes I clip them and save them, but I rarely
actually get around to making them. I do occasionally spend 4 hours in
the kitchen, but when I do, I don't expect to have to cook for a week.
I'm not really motivated to make low-carb cheesecake unless it's a
matter of just mixing cream cheese with some vanilla and lemon juice and
sweetener - that's good enough for me.

So here's my actual fast, practical almond meal/flax meal recipes that I
make all the time:

First one is to make a slice of bread. I use a square pyrex about the
size of a regular bread slice with a lid. Melt 1 TB butter in the dish
in the microwave, then stir in 1 beaten egg, 2 TB flax meal, 2 TB almond
meal and 1/4 tsp baking powder; cover and microwave for 90 seconds.

I will often put the bread on a plate and put a slice of cheese on it;
then cook an egg in the same pyrex dish to top it with. The whole
sandwich has 9g total carb, 26g protein and 542 calories. A very fast
breakfast with minimal dishes involved.

Second one I do often is to make a muffin, which I nuke in a coffee cup.
This is particularly good when you're craving something specific like
a banana muffin or garlic bread cause the taste varies depending on what
extracts/sweeteners or herbs you use. Just melt 2 TB coconut oil in
coffee cup, beat in 1 egg, 1/4 cup flax meal and either some
extract/sweetener for a sweet muffin or spices/herbs* for a savory
muffin. Nuke for 1 minute for a muffin with 17g total carb, 17g protein
and 612 calories.

*Julie can add salt here.

Since I am allergic to almonds, eggs and other things in your recipe, I
wouldn't be making it. I do make a yummy onion bread with flax, sunflower
seeds and a few other ingredients. The recipe calls for Nama Shoyu, but I
don't do soy so I put in a pinch of Celtic Sea Salt. I think I posted it
here before. You need a dehydrator for it.

Sounds interesting.I like the microwave baking idea. Do you grind your
own almonds or buy almond flour?

Both, it depends.

Lately, I am buying both the almond and flax preground. I store both in
the fridge.

Much snipped for brevity, but it was also saved!

Jackie, I thank you for sharing these ideas and methods. I've recently
been diagnosed with Type 2 (on Halloween of all days... how do you like
that?!?), and have been on the hunt for interesting and tasty, yet
healthy ideas. I will be sure to try these soon.

Karen
