Carb Recipes!

I decided today to make various kinds of "snacks" that we can substitute CARBS for that are all under 1g CARB. They will replace chips and crackers. I also made a breakfast replacement for "bran muffins" as well as homemade ice cream that is under 3g each serving.

Come along as I teach you how to make these delicious renditions. 

So I decided to skip breakfast (I was not hungry), however the thought of a good bowl of guacamole and salsa and sour cream, with chips I could dip it into screamed my name. I scurried around quickly and found a perfect chip!
Preheat oven to 350. I took a cookie sheet and foil and greased it with butter, I then took a spoon full of shredded cheese and placed them on the foil. This is how it looked before going in the oven. 
I waited for them to brown slightly then removed them from the oven. 
They were a perfect chip for my salsa guacamole and sour cream mix! And I got full off of just a few "chips" verses my never ending stomach with regular corn tortilla chips. 
After doing these "cheese chips" I thought there has to be variations to this, so I added and arranged the cheese drops as I did previously but added a dollap of homemade "worry free ranch" and sprinkled parm cheese on each, then topped with pepper. They went in the oven, I waited for them to brown then removed.
 I decided to try another variation, I used pepper, salt, and Cajun pepper on the cheese dollaps, decided to place them in a muffin pan and let them brown more. Here is what they look like.
Total Carb count for each "cheese chip" 0g

I wanted to make Ranch Crackers mine didn't turn out too pretty I could have made them more circular but I just plopped them on the cookie sheet.
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup parm cheese
1 egg
1 tablespoon homemade ranch or carb free ranch or low carb ranch.

Preheat oven to 350. Add the above together, drop on cookie sheet, flatten with spoon. Take fork and poke holes into each cracker. Cook around 20 min or until light brown.
Carb count: 0-1/2g Makes 12-20 crackers.

Worry Free Ranch
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup parm cheese
2 small garlic cloves finely minced
2 tablespoons finely minced onion

Put in food processor or magic bullet sprinkle salt and pepper. Done. This one packs a lot of kick if you don't like garlic half the recipe.

I then decided to make a rendition of Bran Muffins for the morning fast breakfast.
1 cup flax seed flour
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons cinnamon
3 eggs
6 packets sugar substitute (I am trying to wean off sweets you may want to add more)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons almond milk

Bake at 350 for 10-15 min, until the tops brown. makes 12 muffins.
*eat with almond butter, cream cheese, sugar free jam, butter or coconut oil, or plain too :)
Total Carb: 1g each muffin

Feeling quite satisfied for the various snacks I made I decided to take it one step further and make some 
Ice Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup (Coconut Milk OR Almond Milk OR Coffee)
6 packets sugar substitute (You can add more if you please)
Options: Add 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla OR Almond Extract OR Peppermint OR Lemon OR Nuts of your choice OR fruit. For nuts and fruit add 1 tablespoon.

Mix all the following ingredients together. I decided to make:
coconut with unsweetened flakes and almond extract with coconut milk ice cream
pistachio with almond milk and
coffee with almond and vanilla extract.

Place in something you can freeze these guys in. Ice trays work perfect but I did not have one, I placed them in small glass cups. Once frozen remove 30min or more from freezer before wanting to eat. Once time passes place in blender and blend then serve immediately.

Carb Count: 2-3g (Serves 1-2 each)
Not a very pretty picture of the little beauty's but they are chilling until they are frozen. From left to right. Coconut ice cream, Pistachio ice cream, Coffee ice cream.
Final look. Pistachio was THE BEST one :)
