Low carb Maple flavored Malt-o-meal !
« on: August 22, 2014, 01:27:41 PM »
I accidentally discovered something awesome!

While making my morning muffin, I used a little too much smart balance and added some sugar free maple syrup to see what would happen. The result was a very mushy muffin, which broke apart as I tried to turn it over in my mug (which I do to cool it down after microwaving). When I tasted it, I realized that it had a consistency similar to malt-o-meal, so I added a bit of heavy cream and mashed it well to make it even more gooey. Oh my gosh! It tasted so good, I had to share with ya'll!

Low Carb Maple Malt-o-Meal

1+ TBSP Smart Balance Light
(melt for 20 seconds in microwave)

Then add:
1 TSP Vanilla
2 TSP Sugar Free Maple Syrup (I use Maple Grove Farms butter flavored maple syrup)
3 drops Zero Sweetener
1/4 ground flax seeds
1/2 TSP Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Cinnamon
1 egg

optional - a small handful of fresh blueberries!

Microwave on High for 1 minute. Immediately stir with a spoon to break up the muffin. Add a splash of heavy cream and enjoy hot! (FYI - all quantities except egg, bkg powder and flax seed are approximations...I tend to eyeball it as I through it together)

Hi, Alicia! :)

This is something I occasionally do with the One Minute Muffin for breakfast.
It's so yummy! ;D ;D ;D
