Low Carb Stuff

It was my intention to post recipes here but I never got around to it, so instead, I’ll post links to recipes I’ve tried.  Well, except for the low-carb bread, I’ll leave that recipe here.  =D

Low-Carb Cheddar Bay Biscuits
These are awesome.  They do have a bit of carbalose aftertaste but the garlic mostly covers it up.  I make a batch of 12 biscuits, then freeze 11 of ’em in a ziplock bag.  (Hafta eat one while it’s hot out of the oven!)  I usually have one each day and all I do is wrap the frozen biscuit in a paper towel and throw it into the microwave for about 30 seconds.  At only 2 net carbs each, ya can’t beat it for satisfying the urge for bread!

Cream Cheese Clouds
If you follow the recipe (and use liquid splenda), these have only a half-carb-gram each!  I keep ’em in the freezer at my work and my non-dieting-co-workers keep wanting to eat them!  Lately I’ve been adding about 1/4 cup of chopped pecans to the bowl – yum!  I figure it maybe brings each up to a whole carb.  Maybe.

Oh, just one thing – don’t use salted butter.  I accidentally used salted butter for these and they were wrong.  Just wrong!

Almost Payday Candy Bars
To make these, you use the recipe for Chewy Peanut Butter Candy and then just roll ’em in salted peanuts.  They are amazingly satisfying as a low-carb snack!  I make ’em just a bit bigger so I only get 12 instead of 14, but then I use liquid splenda and so the net carb count still ends up at about 2g each!

Crispy Cheese Crackers
Regardless of whether you’re on a diet or not – if you have children, you really need to check out this treat!  So much better for them than Cheezits – and they taste very close to the same!  If you are on a low-carb diet – these are the answer to that age-old question:  What can I dip?  It sucks that we low-carbers can eat all these yummy dips out there (cheese dips, sour cream dips, etc) but we have nothing to dip in them!  Now we do!

Roasted Green Beans
Oh my.  One of my favorite snacks.  Dip ’em in sour cream and pretend you’re at Friday’s.  Yeah, that good!

Mock Danish
Okay this is really high in calories, but very low in carbs.  It’s a quick and easy microwave treat for one, though, so if you have a sweet tooth that won’t go away – one-a these (with Cinnamon Glaze) will definitely take care of it.
