These are great. I've had them the last three days in a row. I bake them in my toaster oven for ten minutes and they come out perfectly.

I did a variation with an entire egg, plus 1 Tbsp coconut flour to absorb the extra liquid, and they came out nicely, though you could taste the coconut. The other two times, I used an egg yolk (and gave the white to the dog.)

Next time I have some coconut bark, I'm going to chop some of it up to add as chocolate chips.

Hi
When you say 2 or 3 pkts of splenda, do you mean the whole box as 1 packet? Or just the sachets? THanks
Karen.

I have heard that necessity is the mother of invention?

I "need" for items to be readily available in the stores that are near my home and I "need" for things to be very fast and easy to make!

There are a LOT of really interesting recipes here, but the bottom line is they contain ingredients that have to be ordered online, from companies that who knows if they will be around next week or next month. I think I'm a pretty average person who doesn't have a lot of time to devote to cooking, and I'm not going to go to the trouble of trying to procure those hard to find ingredients on a regular basis. One thing that I have learned, especially since being on this forum, is that I AM NOT ALONE. So I have to assume there are others who feel the same way I do!

Hence my desserts of choice:

3 min choc cake with chocolate icing
chocolate molten cake
rev roll cinnamon buns
rev roll based cakes (lemon, tiramisu so far)
flavored whipped creams
basic vanilla cookies
pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting
CO/butter bark

I can't say I "created" any of them...but I'm trying to show people that you really can make some things using easy to find ingredients that will make this WOE easier to stick to for life.

I've found good substitutes for potato chips with the fried provolone, and mashed potatoes with cauliflower puree. If I could find a *good* substitute for rice and pasta (zucchini ribbons or spaghetti squash don't cut it for me), I think I'd be set for life.

Finding a way to season the fried provolone to taste like Doritos would be a definite plus, too.

Ok they are in the oven now. I did have one mishap. I sliced into my left index finger while opening my package of almond flour. Not a happy camper.

3 minutes to go!

I'd think that the coconut flour would be a better choice for induction rather than the almond flour. My reason for this is that almond flour raises my blood glucose while coconut flour will have no affect and even sometimes lower my blood glucose readings depending on the brand of coconut flour I use( some have 0 carbs).

I'll be trying Betsy's version tomorrow

The chocolate version is basically the recipe Elle posted (I use coconut flour instead of almond, though) and as much cocoa as you like (I used about 2 tsp.) Bake as usual.

The "buttercream" frosting is this:

Melt 2 T butter (I used salted)
Stir in 1 T cocoa powder, about 8 drops Sweetzfree, and about 1T of heavy cream. Put in the fridge for a bit to "set up", but not solidify. Take it out, and use either a handmixer or balloon whisk on a KitchenAid, and let it go and whip until fluffy. Frost the cookies with it.

Ok i made these last week, and they were ok, but didnt sweeten them enough to be considered a cookie.

I made a couple variations to the recipe and OMG.
Here is how it worked.

I mixed one whole egg with about a tablespoon of espresso powder and about 1/2 tsp of vanilla. I melted two small squares of unsweeten chocolate in 2 tbls of butter. I added enough splenda to the chocolate butter mixture to make it sweet. I then combined the 1/2 cup of almond flour with 1/4 tsp of cream of tarter and 1/2 of baking powder. Combined all ingredients and spooned onto baking sheet baked at 350 for 12 minutes. WOW!!!! They are great!

one is enough to curb the sweet craving
