Low Carb Banana-Coconut Cream Pie

This pie is so scrumptious! I just love banana and coconut together, they compliment each other so well. This recipe is super easy to whip up too. I am not a fan of meringue so I usually top this pie with fresh whipped cream and garnish with toasted coconut. Delicious!

This recipe makes 8 servings with 8 carbs each. If you use Splenda count the extra carbs. If you wish add one small sliced banana, it will add 2.6 carbs to each slice.

Low Carb Pie Crust

I used my mother's pie crust recipe as a basis for this tender crust, I just put a low carb spin on it. Mom always makes amazing pies! You can use other flours and meals if you like, just try to keep it low carb. You could add a little cinnamon for flavor as well, Yum!

This crust makes 8-10 servings with 4.68-3.75 each, depending on how large your slices are.

Low Carb Steakhouse Meatloaf

Who doesn't love a good steak? This recipe was made to mimic the delicious flavor of a grilled sirloin using steak seasoning and steak sauce. You can use any variety of ground beef but sirloin is simply delicious!

This recipe makes 6 main course serving with 3.5 carbs each (If using A1 steak sauce and low carb bread having 5 carbs each slice, I used Sara Lee 45 Calories and Delightful, Whole Wheat with Honey).

Low Carb Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is one of the comfort foods that reminds me of my childhood. My mom used to make it for our family quite often. Her bread pudding was Sooo Good! This recipe is just as delicious but without the added sugar and tons of carbs. You can use your favorite low carb bread for this dish. I usually use Sara Lee 45 Calories and Delightful. The 100% Whole Wheat with Honey variety only has 5 carbs per slice and tastes delicious! I topped this dessert with rum sauce but cream cheese glaze is delicious too.

This recipe makes 12 servings and has 4 carbs each. If you use Splenda make sure to count the extra carbs.
