    Jainene's Note:

    I found this recipe on a low-carb forum when Googling different low-carb websites--it sounds crazy, but the end result is amazing! To quote the original post: "This makes a wonderful hamburger bun, it tastes like a whole wheat bun. It's very sturdy and holds up well with all the juiciness of a hamburger with all the fixings." Note: you may need to add more ground flaxseed/flaxseed meal--the consistently of the "stuff" pre-microwaved should be thick and sort of pasty, like brownie batter, not liquidy.

      I feel like I just found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I mean come on: 12 grams of protein and 8 grams of dietary fiber per bun, wow! Now, let me tell you, applesauce is a decent substitute for butter in bread like recipes (quick breads, muffins, etc.) - Though to test this hypothesis, and so I didn't risk giving this recipe a faulty review, I made it both ways. Both turned out equally as moist and bouncy; although, they varied in taste ever so slightly. If you are a health-nut (in training) like I am, forgo the butter and use an equal measurement of applesauce. Also be aware of the bowl size you use: the width at the largest point of your bowl will likely be the size of your bun. I used this for the Honey Apple Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

      Amazing low carb bun! I added 2-3 extra tbsp of the ground flax seed to get mine more like a paste and microwaved for about 1 minute 10 seconds. I thought this recipe sounded odd, but it turned out yummy, and tasted like a light fluffy bread. I will definitely be making this again - it made me feel like I wasn't missing out on a nice cheeseburger dinner by trying to make a lettuce wrap. Thanks for the recipe!

      This is awesome!!! It makes the best bun for a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg topping. Thank you!!! Perfect for the low carber. The taste is great but doesn't overpower the burger. Next time I might try toasting it after slicing it.
