Hi everyone thought I would start this blog to keep track of the bits & bobs I get up to each day. I am a stay at home mum with 3 children who are in their teens & twenties. I have had Chronic Lyme Disease for at least 14 years if not more. I am constantly trying to improve my condition. I am a great fan of moneysavingexpert.com and have discovered a few ways of upping my income without too much effort

Low Carb Malt Loaf

I've been struggling for the past month or so trying to keep to a low carb diet.   Energy levels have been low and I have no motivation for cooking at all.   After sharing this on the MSE Low Carb Diet thread a friend posted this recipe for Low Carb Malt Loaf.  It is just what I needed, quick and easy to make.  It makes an ideal quick and easy lunch.

Low Carb Malt Loaf


3 med eggs
4 tbsp water
4 tbsp double cream
12 tbsps ground flax( or can mix part ground almonds, part flax0
1.5 tsps baking powder
 4 dried figs chopped
6 walnut halves, chopped
pinch salt
mixed spice

Use a microwaveable lunch container - 750 ml type

Lightly beat eggs water & cream.
Separately mix flax, baking powder, salt, & spices
Add flax mix to beaten eggs and mix well.  If necessary add more water to get a good, thick, smooth batter feel.
Add chopped figs and walnuts.

Cook for 5 minutes or so on full power in microwave.  You'll have to check by turning out.  if still wet on the bottom, put back in container upside down for 1 min.  Turn out onto cooling rack and allow to cool. 

Around 30 carb for the lot.

I have 12 slices from mine at an amazing 2.5g carb each.

Lovely toasted with butter

Will keep once cooled in an airtight container for at least 4 days.
