My husband is diabetic. He loves this and it doesn't make his sugar levels spike! I think it's good, too. First time I made it, he called his brother and said 'I just had my first sandwich in 23 years.' Make round patties and sprinkle with poppy or sesame seeds for hamburger or hot dog buns.

Cook's Note:

I usually pour half into a parchment paper lined cookie sheet with raised sides. The other half I make round "pancake like" patties. I sprinkle poppy seeds and sesame seeds onto the rounds and use them for hamburger or hot dog buns. Bake at 325 degrees F for 25 minutes until light brown. Cut the cookie sheet rectangle into squares for sandwiches.
