Low-carb comfort food. Consistency is somewhere between cream-of-wheat and savory pudding.

Comfort food breakfast! This was wonderful this morning with the snow coming down like gangbusters (to quote hubby). I stirred the egg mixture with a whisk until it just started to boil and really thicken up, then added agave and a ton of cinnamon with the flax. I didn't measure the flax, just threw in a good sized handful. I like chocolate flavor hot cereal, so after tasting, I added a packet of no sugar added cocoa mix (10 carbs). Plain soy milk worked well in this for the cream as well. A little less texture than the malt-o-meal the kids (and I) love, but a very good substitute to cut back on carbs. Very filling as well. Thanks for sharing. Going to add a maple extract next time to try to replicate the other flavors of hot cereal. Update: Maple and brown sugar works! Added Splenda, a dollop of molasses, and about a quarter to half a teaspoon of maple extract before stirring in the flax, and it's perfect! I can have my favorite malt o meal flavor without the guilt. Thanks again! Also, almond milk works just as well as soy...
