Low Carb LCHF Cream Cheese Lemon Pound Cake

ENJOY A SLICE OF LEMON HEAVEN   If you’re looking for a low carb, sugar-free, grain-free, gluten-free cream cheese lemon pound cake then you’ve clicked on the right link because even I can’t tell it is low carb and polished off a few slices. Creating low carb dessert recipes for my wife to enjoy can be challenging but once you understand how the ingredients work together easy low carb desserts can be brought to life. Creating recipes is about experimenting which can be fun even if your recipe doesn’t turn out as planned. I’m no pastry chef and working with flour that contain no gluten, eggs, butter, coconut oil and cream cheese to re-invent the pound cake took some trial and error. With my wife’s birthday this month I wanted to create a low carb pound cake since it’s her favourite type of cake. She loves how a traditional pound cake is dense and perfect for dipping in coffee or milk. It has been almost one year since she’s given up sugar, grains and most fruits and vegetables to lead a low carb lifestyle. She loves this way of eating, feels great and has lost all the weight she gained […]

Best Low Carb Chocolate Frosted Zucchini Brownies

INDULGE YOUR SWEET TOOTH WITH THESE MOIST ZUCCHINI BROWNIES   If you’re anything like us you have a kitchen counter full of zucchini also called courgette and wondering what on earth you can do with it all. I have a sweet suggestion for you! You can make these outrageously moist low carb chocolate frosted zucchini brownies and no one will ever know they are healthy. Zucchini are a summer squash which can reach nearly a meter in length, but is usually harvested immature at 15–25 cm. In the British Isles, a fully grown zucchini is referred to as a marrow.- Source Wikipedia Zucchini The zucchini we used for this recipe were organic and full-grown so we removed all the skin which tends to be tough and grated it using a box grater. This is a simple way to make sure none of the mature seeds get into your zucchini brownies. The shredded zucchini gets lost in the chocolate brownie batter which is a cake-like consistency and no one will even know it’s there. You can’t even taste it. The main role of the zucchini is to keep cakes and brownies moist. What you’re left with is a healthier option for a […]

The Perfect Vanilla Ice-Cream Sandwich (Low-Carb)

A HOMEMADE SUGAR-FREE TREAT THAT IS LOW-CARB AND PERFECT WHEN YOU CRAVE SOMETHING SWEET   My wife was in the mood for something sweet the other night and kept bugging me to help her create a vanilla ice-cream sandwich treat for the summer. I got to work making the cookie base for the vanilla ice-cream sandwich which wasn’t easy and took me a few tries. The tender cookies don’t take long to make however it’s the batter consistency that you need to watch out for. The cookie batter should look frothy and not dense. When I eat an ice-cream sandwich I don’t want to have a hard cookie base. You expect to bite into an ice-cream sandwich where your teeth sink through the soft cookie, into the ice-cream and again through another cookie. I am not a fan of the ice-cream sandwich with the hard cookie as I find the ice-cream squashes out too easily and a big mess is born. Don’t get me wrong they taste good and I wouldn’t turn one down but for my wife I knew that being on a low-carb diet that most cookies that we create do come out of the oven moist. The […]

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (Low-Carb, Sugar-Free)

HOMEMADE SUGAR-FREE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS THAT SATISFY   You’re looking at a dark chocolate peanut butter cup recipe that is so good you can’t even tell they are a low-carb, sugar-free treat. If you enjoy a low-carb lifestyle and are craving something sweet these chocolate peanut butter cups will cure all. I don’t always eat low-carb and it was hard for me to stop at eating just one of these beauties which are similar to Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups that you can buy at just about every shop. I’m not even a huge peanut butter fan as I didn’t grow up on it like my wife did but when you mix it with chocolate something magical seems to happen. Ya, you know what I mean. My wife and I made these about 3 weeks ago now after she was in serious need of fulfilling her sweet tooth after dinner. Over Christmas we make a chocolate peanut butter ball recipe which is famous with just about anyone we’ve fed them to. We took that concept and created the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups but we made them in large size muffin liners re-create the Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup. A nice chocolate […]

No-Bake Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Squares (Low-Carb)

A SUGAR-FREE DESSERT RECIPE FOR ALL OCCASIONS   Not everyone can enjoy sugar-laced treats especially when there is a holiday such as a Birthday, Christmas, Easter and even Valentine’s Day. There are however some amazing sugar-free peanut butter squares that I want to share with you today that I adapted from a recipe I found online. My wife no longer consumes sugar and with Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to surprise her with something sweet that I knew she would love. She’s a peanut butter enthusiast even though I’m not the biggest fan I must say that these sugar-free peanut butter squares are pretty amazing. It’s important that you buy unsweetened, no-salt peanut butter for the recipe. Peanut butter traditionally has quite a bit of sugar so make sure you read the labels carefully. How much sugar is in peanut butter? Even though your sugar-free peanut butter is only crushed nuts you will still have 1 gram of natural sugar per tablespoon (15g) and 3 grams of carbohydrate. If you can buy organic peanut butter that is unsweetened and just crushed peanuts…even better. You’ll pay around $5-6 a jar. The coconut oil we use is Grace premium virgin coconut […]

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Pancakes (Low-Carb, Gluten-Free)

ADD THESE CREAM CHEESE PANCAKES TO YOUR BREAKFAST MENU   I’ve created my version of low-carb cream cheese pancakes and they taste delicious for a quick breakfast on the run. Lately I’ve been talking about my wife being on a low-carb diet to help get rid of some weight she gained during her pregnancy. As an avid runner she would like to get back into the gym and back to the active lifestyle she once had. Part of her inspiration comes from the popular Atkins Diet that has proven successful for so many men and women around the world. You only have to look at photos and read stories on social media sites to see how the Atkins Diet has changed lives. The most important part I like to remind my wife about is that eating should be part of a “lifestyle” and not something you do just because you think you have to do it. I’ve read all that I can about the Atkins Diet over the past few weeks including Atkins recipes so I could help my wife prepare or create her meals. Although she only went through the Atkins induction stage for 2 weeks to jump-start her […]
