Low Carb Buttery Almond & Coconut Cake




This is a HUGE winner, definitely a keeper that I will be making over and over. It is a recipe by an Australian Author/Chef Belinda Jeffery that I converted to low carb (wasn't hard!), this lady is a genius!

Now if you wish to get the carb count down more I am sure you could simply replace the splenda with one of the various versions of stevia or you could use splenda tablets or the liquid splenda. Also, if your worried about the calories you could simply cut it into more portions or do what I do and have it as a meal rather then a snack. I found it made a yummy breakfast!

One of the ladies uses this recipe for muffins so you could try that too. We have a thread for it here: Low Carb Buttery Almond & Coconut Cake

Low Carb, Cream Cheese Muffins


















Nance, asked in the comments section for the recipe so I thought I'd take a picture of one I made last night and share here. Now this may look very plain and basic but it is actually very yum. Don't be afraid to try it if you don't like baked cheesecakes, as I didn't like them either, until now so you never know you may love these too!

The recipe is from low carb friends, make sure to check that thread for the many variations, it is long but worth the read. I make mine a little different to the original and I also provide metric measurements, you're more then welcome to pop into our thread I made as well: Low Carb Cream Cheese Muffins (Cheesecakes)

Low Carb Easy Eggs





I thought I'd share my favourite way to eat eggs, I call them Easy Eggs because they are just that, easy but also very yum. If your feeling sick and tired of eggs try this, but remember don't have it every day or it will end up just like every other egg dish!

This is a picture of my eggs that I had last night, they actually look better then that when they first come out of the oven. I did plan on taking a photo whilst they were all puffed up but Maya had other ideas...

Anyway this is how I do mine, you could add other ingredients to it like a slice of tomato or mushroom. You could also line the ramekin with nitrate free bacon or ham, I used to make a similar dish, Ham and Egg thingos but I like these better.
