Sandwich Bread



3/4 cup flax meal
1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
2 teaspoon Italian Blend Seasoning
3 Large Eggs
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
Sprinkle of Parmesean on top

Mix the dry ingredients in a loaf dish (like the holiday-size, banana nut bread, etc.). Add eggs and oil, mixing very well. I notice that if the dry ingredients are not thoroughly mixed, or the wet-big pockets are left in the bread, so mix it up good! Sprinkle Parmesean Cheese on top.

Microwave for about 3-minutes, my microwave takes 2:50 to complete.

Pop out of the baking dish.

Slice the loaf in half. Then slice each half in half, making 4 slices total. Each slice should have 1.13 total net carbs, or each complete sandwich should have 2.25 total net carbs. Each slice is about 3/4 inch thick.

    Chewy Nut Cookies


    Chewy Nut Cookies

    Makes eight to twelve cookies

    1 cup blanched almond flour
    2 tablespoons organic unsalted butter
    1/4 cup Slenda
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
    1/16 teaspoon sea salt
    1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans


    Preheat oven to 275

    Chop pecans, and toast them for 12 minutes. Melt butter. Stir together all ingredients except almond flour and pecans. Mix in almond flour until a smooth dough forms, then fold in nuts until dispersed throughout dough. Shape into flat cookie rounds on parchment paper. Bake for 12-18 minutes, or until slightly browned around the edges. Let cookies cool and harden for a full 10 minutes before removing from parchment.

    Mint Chocolate Cake


    Cake Layer

    1 Egg

    1 oz Cream Cheese

    1 Tablespoon Butter

    1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
    1 Tablespoon Powdered Erythirol
    1 Scoop Stevia
    (the little spoon that comes with it)
    6 Drops liquid Splenda


    Egg, Soften Cream Cheese, and Butter to room temperature. Mix everything except Egg on high until very well blended, then add egg and mix on low till blended. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes. This will rise very high, and fall quite a bit, but thats ok, that's what gives the cake layer its dense texture. Makes (2) 4" round cakes. Cool in refrigerator while preparing other layers. This has a great "cake like" texture, and the Erythritol lends itself well.

    Mint layer
    2 1/3 Tablespoons Butter

    1 oz Cream Cheese

    14 drops Mint Extract (I used the liquid Stevia dropper)
    2 Tablespoons Powdered Erythritol
    13 drops Liquid Splenda
    2 Scoops Stevia (the little spoon that comes with it)


    Soften Butter and Cream Cheese to room temperature. Mix all ingredients till blended.
    Spread onto cooled cake layer. The Erythritol does have a cooling effect in this layer, and even a little grit, but it's no big deal since it's a mint layer anyway, and the grit isn't overbearing when combined with the other two layers.

    Chocolate Topping
    2 Squares Lindt 85
    % Chocolate Bar
    1/2 Tablespoon Butter

    1 1/2 teaspoons Heavy Cream

    14 drops Liquid Splenda


    Melt all ingredients in skillet or microwave. Spread on top of mint layer and sides.
    This is very tasty, similar to chocolate frosting!
