I just got my oat fiber, but I haven't gotten any glucomannan yet.
I tried making some things with it, like pizza crust and carrot 'nuggets' but honestly it didn't taste very good :( The oat fiber just tastes chalky and dry and powdery.
Does it always taste like that? Does the glucomannan help? Is there anything I can do? :( I've got a four pound bag...

Yeah, it will never be perfect. It's never taster chalky to me, but it is fry a it has that fiber taste, I don't know how to describe it.

You get used to it. I bought the 4 pound bag too. I've learned to make a 10 calorie slice of bread in the microwave, I adapted it from a recipe I found through Google.

Mix 2 tablespoons oat fiber
A large pinch of baking powder
3/4 a tablespoon glucomannan
2 teaspoons egg white powder
Add water slowly, tablespoon by tablespoon until it's sort of runny.
Microwave 2 minutes

It's dry, but if you use a lot of Walden Farms mayo it makes a pretty decent sandwich bread of toast with Walden Farms jam. It's very filling and a fairly generous portion.

I won't eat any other bread now, I stopped buying bread entirely. I like it better everyday and I'm learning how to cook with it. I've already used up a third of my 4 pound bag and I haven't had it a month. It's becoming a diet staple and a favorite safe food. When you learn to cook with it, use slots of spices and sauces with it, and get used to it it will grow on you.

Hmm Mine doesn't taste like chalk at all but it definitely has its own taste though. The carrot nuggets were weird, I didn't like them (too dry) but I love the butterfly recipes thing. Maybe try these, it takes a while to get used to baking with oat fiber (: Good luck

But that would be around 20 calories? A teaspoon of egg white powder has 10 calories .. Or do you use a specific brand? (:

I've only used it mixed half/half with lupin flour, and a bit of no-egg. This makes a pretty useable and stable flour in my opinion. I love the taste of lupin flour though (fresh peas), most people might find that off-putting. But hey, it's high in protein.

Forgot to mention it makes 2 pieces! It will be really thick, you cut it in half and make a sandwich.

I tried making this and didn't end up 'bread', more like.... overcooked oats? I'm curious, what do you cook it in, and, about how much water do you use? I reallllllly need a 'bread' thing :)
