Our tamale pot hasn't been off the shelf in years! I think you could make the original recipe with half flax and half almond meal. I'll try that. I really don't think the corn masa adds a whole lot of flavor. I think the texture is the important part.

Good to see you back Tex!

I think you can make tomalles with flax meal. Just substitute for the corn flour

No, I haven't gotten that far! What could you put in the reduced syrup to give it the smoky flavor molasses has?

How's that bike feeling today? I try to ride 30 minutes a day, I think an hour would be killer! Good job grabbing the bull by the horns though, you're in charge!

The blackstrap molasses adds 11 carbs to the batch. I come up with about 21 carbs total. It makes about 20 2x2 crackers. So about 1 carb each. Real graham crackers are 11.5 net carbs per serving. You still don't want to eat the whole batch at once.

Molasses is the only thing I know that tastes like molasses. Some people substitute maple syrup for molasses, so maybe sf maple syrup?

Good job getting back on track Morgan! I did the same thing when I was moose hunting for 2 weeks. I was eating clean in camp, but eating canned stews and baked beans on the trail. It adds up in a hurry. I lost it all back in two weeks at home, but it was a real eye opener.

Thanks Doug!

I just downloaded it and can't decide what to make first. There are so many great looking things in here!

Thanks again, this place is great!

I tried a new recipe the other day from,"All day I dream about food".  It's homemade low carb  graham crackers, and they taste great!

Preheat oven to 225.
mix 1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup flax meal
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
mix well

then add 1 large egg
2 tbs melted butter
1 tbs blackstrap molasses
2 tsp vanilla
12 drops zero
mix well again, make sure you scrape down the sides

Roll the blob between two sheets of parchment paper to about 1/8" thick. cut it into squares, move any oddball pieces back to where they square up. Poke them all with a fork to make them look like graham crackers.

Throw them on a cookie sheet in the oven for an hour. Then shut off the oven and leave them in there for another hour. Take them out and snap them into crackers and enjoy.

I really like these. I can't wait to use them them for a cheesecake crust!
