If you are not used to a lot of fiber, you may not want to start with a whole recipe of this. It is 10 grams of fiber, and one third of that is soluble, which is good for you, but it's a lot at once. That said, it's yummy, low-carb, quick to make, and will help see you through the morning!

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 3 minutes


  • 1/4 C flax seed meal
  • 1/2 C boiling water
  • 2 T peanut butter
  • 1/4 t cinnamon


Note that a half recipe would be 2 T flax meal, 1/4 C water, and 1 T peanut butter.

1) Pour boiling water over flax seed meal and stir well.

2) Stir in peanut butter and cinnamon.

3) Let thicken for 1 to 2 minutes. Eat.

Nutritional Analysis: Each recipe has 5 grams of effective carbohydrate plus 10 grams of fiber, 14 grams protein, 29 grams fat, and 351 calories.

Pretty good! I did add half a serving of vanilla protein powder and some stevia to it. Satisfying, tasty, I will enjoy this option again and add it to my morning meals.
