Breakfast in Five
  • Nikeva says:

    This is great it has the texture of cream of wheat but taste like pumpin pie!(I used pumpkin pie seasoning)

  • Jan Hickman says:

    did I miss the net carb? Anyone know?

  • Nikki Bowes says:

    Is milled flax the same as flax meal?

  • Paula says:

    Tried for the second time and if you add 1tsp pumpkin spice and liquid sweetener,before you nuke it and mix in cream and sugar free maple syrup after it is very yummy!!!!!

  • Dee says:

    Buy whole flax seed and make it in to meal by grinding the flax seeds in an electric coffee grinder.
    Clean it out well with a pastry brush. Flax seeds can become rancid super fast so this is the
    way to be sure they are fresh.

  • PatBennett says:

    105 Carbs????? That is more than 3 days for me!
    8s that correct?

  • PatBennett says:

    Thank you, I am going to have to try this.

  • Danielle says:

    Added the tiniest drizzle of unsulphered blackstrap molasses. YUMMMMM

  • Arvilla says:

    Am I missing something? When I mixed the pumpkin and flax meal together I get a big lump of clay. Even after heating and trying to mix in the cream, it looks and feels nothing like the picture.

  • Sheri says:

    I made this in a pan, and added enough water, 1/2c., plus an egg, and vanilla…with a squeeze or to of stevia…it made a larger amount, without extra carbs…yum
    Great recipe…thanx

  • Sheri says:

    I also added a dab of butter, and cream on top…

  • gigi says:

    Have you tried this with Chia seeds? I make it with 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened vanilla) 1/4 cup chia seeds, 2 T pumpkin, spices of your choice, sweetner of you choice. Put all in a jar, give it a good shake and refridgerate over night. In the morning you have Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding. I might add some shopped walnuts and a tiny amount of finely chopped apple in the am. Yum!
