Keto Almond Flour Cookies

I am planning some keto desserts and a want a cookie crust.  Even sugar free cookies at the store are not REALLY low carb, so I make these are what I use.  Pretty good with a glass of milk, too.

Keto Ravioli Stuffed With Ricotta and Spinach Made With and CarbQuick

I have been on a quest to develop a keto pasta that actually tastes like pasta, feels like real pasta in your mouth, and is sturdy enough to roll out and cut into your favorite shape.  SUCCESS!

This video is a little longer than I usually post, but stick with it.  The results was a real pasta — unlike any other keto recipe I have seen or tried.  I stuffed it with ricotta and spinach and covered it with a yummy clam sauce (next video) and thoroughly enjoyed my great dinner.

More importantly, two hours after eating, my glucose level was totally normal, no impact at all.  Win, win.

Real Pasta, But Keto With CarbQuick

Eating low carb is necessary for me, and I can do it, but sometimes I have cravings for things I just can’t have.  For me it is starches, not sweets.  That is why I was so happy to find CarbQuick.  (I am not a representative for CarbQuick and I don’t get anything for recommending it.)  I have been having lots of fun making new recipes with this low carb baking mix.

I have been searching for a recipe that produces a decent pasta that is low carb.  I have tried oat fiber, coconut flour, almond flour, cream cheese and eggs — nothing really comes close.

I like to experiment with recipes and I had a new bag of CarbQuick, so I took pasta as a challenge.  Here is the results.

That looks like pasta.  It has more substance and texture than anything else I have tried.  The question is:  How does it hold up to cooking, so I decided to try mac and cheese, my kryptonite.

So far so good.  Looks right, but I expected it to fall apart when I cut into it.  Any other keto pasta I have tried would disintegrate at this point into a pan of mush.

To my happy surprise, this pasta was different, and the whole pasta recipe was 22.2 net grams of carbs.  If you add another 22.2 grams of carbs for the Mornay sauce, also made with CarbQuick, you have mac and cheese for 7.3 grams per serving.  The taste?  Well, it tastes like ….. mac and cheese!
