This was wonderful. I was truly amazed. I did use 1/2 flax and 1/2 oat flour. This is my new miracle bread. Also used Smart Balance instead of butter. Thank you sooooo much....

Hello, I wanted to thank you for posting this recipe. I made it this morning as I wanted bread! Ate it with some smoked herring, it was delicious. Very like a flaxmeal bread I make often. Thanks again MissJam

These are ridiculously good ! The texture is like a nicely dense bread and the favor is very good. Low carb burgers just moved to the top of the LC diet rotation !!

this is a fantastic recipe, thank you for sharing it! I tried it just as is with flaxseed meal and enjoyed it. I then tried it with golden flax and found it even better. it had a milder taste and was more visually appealing. I like that I am able to add different seasonings depending on my mood or dish. but I always add s&p, thyme and a couple dashes of tabasco.<br/><br/>I don't like to use the microwave more than I have to so I tried baking them. it works! and quite well. I multiplied the recipe by 4 and scooped the dough/batter onto a parchment lined tray in approx. 3-4" circles and baked in a 300 oven for 20-30 minutes.it yielded 8-10 "buns" and they freeze well.<br/><br/>I've used this recipe to make pizza crust by adding garlic powder, parmesan cheese and oregano to the mix.<br/><br/>my next experiment will be "cinnamon rolls". a little cinnamon, vanilla and maybe sweetener.<br/><br/>i'm a little confused tho with the nutritional facts shown. the flax i'm using has 4 grams carbs per 2 T with 4 grams of fiber. they should cancel each other out making it a zero carb bun. right? :D

WOW! I was super sceptical when reading that this was made in the microwave. I make pancakes with a recipe similar to this that I really like. So I tried it, and WOWZERS, this is so good. I eliminated the butter completely, and used a scant 1 tbsp of olive oil...worked great! Anxious to share with my husband when we have salmon burgers tonight. Thank-you

This is a great hamburger bun. Instead of using just flax seed meal, I used 2 T flax seed meal and 2T soy flour. The bun is not only tasty but it is firm enough to hold a burger patty with all the fixings for a delicious meal. Thank you Jainene !!

This is the best! Please note for users new to flax seed meal...you have to use GOLDEN FLAXSEED MEAL. The brown will taste chemical. That being said, this is a very flexible recipe, but in the end I like it best toasted after I slice it. I pour half into 2 ramekins, cook for 1.30 min, let cool, cut in half and toast. This will give you 2 buns.

Excellent. More like an English muffin than a bun. Toasting removed the eggy-ness. I added an extra T of flax, used 1/2 C egg substitute, and added 1/2 t onion powder. Next time I will use applesauce. Definitely a keeper.

Worked great toasted for a tuna sandwich. Might try something instead of egg next time, though.
