By the way, all Empower food products can be purchased via there website @ empowerfoods.com.au or through any good health food store! I have also found there products at online stores but have compared prices and sometimes its better to just buy directly from empower foods themselves, especially as they offer no postage on orders over $50.

FIBRE X CHEESE & CHIVE MUFFINS

SERVES: 12

1 cup Empower Foods Fibre X Breakfast Cereal
50g grated tasty cheese
2 tsps baking powder
2 tsps dried onion flakes
2 tsps dried chopped chives
1/4 tsp light salt (optional)
2 eggs
1/4 cup cream
1/2 cup water


Preheat oven to 180 deg. Grease muffin tray lightly with oil.
Place Fibre X, Cheese, Baking Powder,onion flakes,chives and light salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well!
Add eggs, cream and water. Mix Well. Pour mixture into muffin tray. Bake for 10-15 mins until top has set. Allow muffins to cool in tray.

*Please note these muffins are quite small, and dont raise that much. So dont be alarmed if they dont turn out huge. They are very tasty and excellent re-heated or cold. And go very well with meals as a side.

They are very low carb and are excellent for those of us who are low carbing, but also great for anyone who wants to be healthy!

FIBRE X PANCAKE (YUM!!!!!!!!!!)

SERVES: 1

1/3 cup Empower foods Fibre X Breakfast Cereal
1/3 cup Grated Tasty Cheese
2 eggs
Light salt and pepper to taste.
Butter and garlic light salt to serve


Place eggs, cheese, fibre x, light salt and pepper into a mixing bowl. Mix well! Heat a small amount of olive oil in a non stick fry pan and add mixture, forming a round flat pancake. Cook mixture for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.

*Kates TIP:
I find this recipe on its own a little bit bland...SO....
If you are low carbing like me and cant enjoy a good old pizza, then do this:

Kates Pizza!
Make the pancake as the instructions say, but just dont add the 1/3 cup of cheese.

Cook Pancake, set aside.

Add your favourite topping, for eg, use mashed up tomato for base, add capsicum, onion, ham etc. Add 1/3 cup cheese on top. Place under a griller for a few minutes until cheese has browned. Then wala! A small but very tasty pizza, awesome with salad on the side.

FIBRE X PANCAKE, KATES RECIPE! Sweet just like me! :wink:

SERVES: 1

1/2 cup Empower foods Fibre X Breakfast Cereal
2 eggs
20 g approx Walnuts
2-3 strawberries
1 tsp Vanilla Essence or Strawberry Essence
1 tbsp Cream

Place eggs, fibre x and essence of your choice in a bowl. Mix well. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a fry pan. Add mixture, forming a round pancake. COOK ON LOW setting, so it doesnt burn.

While this is cooking finely slice strawberries, and cut up walnuts. (I just pull them apart with my hands, is easier!)

Once one side of the pancake has cooked, flip it over and let it quickly cook the other side, just until the top has kind of set. Flip back over.
Lay strawberries & walnuts out on half of the pancake. Then pull the other side of the pancake over the top (like an omellete)

Let it cook for approx a minute, just enough to let the strawberries walm up.

Serve with cream on the side. Is SOOOO YUMMY! Enjoy!

Hey Kate.
Empower foods recipes only measure carbs and protein. So for the muffins its 2.5g carb and 0.5 protein per muffin.

Now I know what to do with the chocolate rush muffin mix and the cream cheese that I have at home :idea:

Here's some other ones that I've tried:

Baked Pumpkin & Spinach Pie
(8 pieces, about 850kJ each)

And

FibreX Tuna Burgers
(about 1500kJ for the whole recipe)

Yum :D

Hey Chelle! They are an Aussie company, and have been around for a fair while!

They have a forum but I find it a bit slow and boring lol, not much really happens on it...but they have soooo many awesome recipes.

They have the fibre x cereal, muffin mix, bread mix, sauces and cookie mix. The recipes I've posted on here already require some of these things, however there are heaps of yummy recipes that may only require one of there low carb sauces...

I'm going to change what I've done thus far, and make a topic for lunches/dinners, and then desserts/breakfasts, as it will make it easier for ppl 2 navigate through and find what they want!
