Low-Carb Gluten-Free Chocolate Pudding Mug Cake


I was craving chocolate tonight and came up with this scrumptious concoction! It literally took me 5 minutes from start to finish, honest! The texture is somewhere between chocolate fudge and sponge cake. Chocolate cake in 5 minutes or less. You have to try this!

Low-Carb Gluten-Free Cherry Almond Scones



Scones have got to be one of the most popular coffee break snacks today. Every coffee shop I come across seems to always have them on the menu. With good reason, they are moist, tender and delicious! This recipe is all of those things, but without the guilt of inhaling a gazillion carbs! I used my Low-Carb Gluten-Free Flour Mix #3 for these light and airy scones. It is lighter in texture than my other mixes, has the least carbs, more neutral flavor, and is perfect for tender pastries like these. Scones are a very versatile treat. You can add blueberries, raisins, cherries or even sugar-free chocolate chips and nuts. They don't have to be sweet treats either. I have had wonderful savory scones with herbs and sun dried tomatoes, Yumm! Let your imagination dictate your recipe!
I used two products in this recipe I would like to bring to your attention: Hi-maize resistant corn starch and Lorann Bakery Emulsions. Both are gluten-free.

Low-Carb Gluten-Free Ricotta Pancakes



I love pancakes, all kinds of pancakes! Look at how fluffy these are, Mmmm! No sweetener needed for this one either. This recipe is a variation of my original Low-Carb Pancake recipe. I used my Revised Low-Carb Gluten-Free Flour Mix for this recipe and increased the ricotta cheese a little. They turned out moist, fluffy and delicious! Just how a pancake should be. Blueberries or sugar-free chocolate chips would be wonderful additions to this recipe, but I decided to keep it simple for the first go-around. Now on to the recipe.

Bread sticks that are low-carb, gluten-free and also soft and chewy? You found em! These are so good! They have a light texture and a flavor that reminds me of whole wheat bread. Perfect for sopping up marinara sauce. These were super easy to whip up. The dough is very workable, perfect for shaping into bread sticks.
