Oma’s AWESOME Flat Bread — January 21, 2017

Oma’s AWESOME Flat Bread

ketokitty-bread
I started with the basic fathead pizza crust recipe and changed it up to make this bread. It’s thick, soft, and delicious! Let me know what you think!

Ingredients:
3/4 cups shredded Mozzarella
1 tbs cream cheese
3/8 cup almond flour
2 Tbs Flax Seed Meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder (or seasoning of choice)
1 tsp Italian seasoning (or seasoning of choice)
1 egg
2 teaspoons olive oil (or butter)
Garlic salt (you can change this out to any seasoning)
Parchment paper and small baking sheet

Directions:
Place Mozzarella cheese and Cream Cheese in a medium sized microwavable bowl.
Microwave for 1 minute, stir well, then microwave another 30 seconds. (Careful the bowl and the ingredients will be quite  hot!)
Stir in almond flour, flax seed meal, baking powder, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning and mix very well.
Add egg and oil and mix well.
Spread into a 1/2 inch thick round on parchment paper in the center of the baking sheet – it should be about 6 inches in diameter. Use a piece of saran wrap to shape it,  it will stick to your fingers! Remove saran before baking! 😄

Bake at 425F for 15 minutes, and check color. Continue to bake for 5 more minutes or until it’s a nice brown.

Remove from oven, butter the top and sprinkle with garlic salt (or seasoning of choice)

Indispensable Almost No Carb Barbecue Sauce —

Indispensable Almost No Carb Barbecue Sauce

BBQI read about this BBQ sauce on Low Carb Friends and they said they got the recipe from Blood Sugar 101.
So I went there and yep, there it was but there was no picture for it. So I couldn’t pin to Pinterest from there! So I found a pic of bbq sauce and put it on my recipe blog with the recipe. I’ll put the link to Blood Sugar 101 in the Pinterest post 🙂 (It’s http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/43067291.php)

Carbohydrates per Serving (1 tablespoon)less than 1 gram.
Half an ounce is 1 gm carbs, 6 calories.

3/8 cup vinegar
1 1/2 cup tomato sauce. (1 15 oz can) regular tomato sauce only, no flavorings and lowest sugar possible!)
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon yellow hot dog mustard
3/4 tablespoon Hot Sauce
3/4 tablespoon salt (optional)
1 dash cayenne pepper.
3 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
6 teaspoons Splenda or 18 drops of Liquid Splenda, ( or other artificial sweetener)

Add vinegar and all other ingredients except mustard to a sauce pan and slowly heat. Put mustard in a cup and slowly stir in a couple tablespoons of sauce until well blended. Then add mustard mixture back to sauce in pan.

Bring to a boil, and lower heat. Let simmer for a few minutes. Let cool, then refrigerate.

Note: this sauce may taste somewhat odd while it is still hot. But when it sits in the fridge the flavors come together in a lovely way.

Blueberry Single Serving Muffin —

Blueberry Single Serving Muffin

There are many many recipes out there for MIM’s (muffins in a mug – or in this case a bowl). I had this one in my old recipe file with  no idea where it came from. Searched but found none that were exactly the same as this. If you know the owner, please let me know! 🙂
Put 
⅓ cup unsweetened blueberries (fresh or frozen) in a soup bowl.
Sprinkle a package of 
Stevia (or sweetener of your choice) over them. Set aside.In another bowl, combine:
2 tablespoons of ground almonds
2 tablespoons of ground flax seed
½ teaspoon of baking powder
2-3 packets of sweetener or Stevia (to taste)
Mix well.Add:
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (I usually add more but your taste will vary)
1 egg
Mix well.Pour over blueberries, to cover.
You may sprinkle 1 tablespoon of unsweetened, toasted shredded coconut on top, if wished.
Microwave for 1 minute 40 seconds (adjust time for doneness according to your oven).Blueberry MIM

I like to pour a couple of tablespoons of 35% cream over this, and eat it while it’s still hot.

 

 Be careful, it’s hot! Blueberries retain microwave heat.

Guacamole —

Guacamole

quacamole

A note on Avocados:

Avocados are a super healthy low-carb  food. But technically they are a fruit. They are very high in certain nutrients, especially fiber and potassium.Most of the fats (over 60%) are monounsaturated, with small amounts of saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.Avocados are beneficial for metabolism and heart health as well.

One study in people with high cholesterol found that 7 days of an avocado-enriched diet lowered LDL and triglycerides by 22%, while raising HDL by 11% (19).
Calorie breakdown: 77% fat, 4% protein, 19% carbs. Most of the carbs in avocados are fiber (20).This makes the NET carbs quite low, but total carbs pretty high.
Caveat: If you are just starting an LCHF lifestyle and are diabetic, you may want to either skip avocados until you are off meds or lowered them as much as possible and your blood sugars are normalized, OR try them and test test test to see if they spike you! 

Ingredients:
2 avocados
1 lime, juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small tomato (or use a little salsa – check labels for added sugar!)
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. dill

Directions:
Spoon out avocados into large bowl.
Add lime juice, minced garlic, and chopped tomato.
With a spoon, mash together until mixture becomes creamy.
Add sea salt and dill.
Refrigerate and serve with bell pepper slices or celery

Bacon and Egg Muffins —

Bacon and Egg Muffins

3824207513_681167b577_z

Here’s two versions – the first is easiest, the second still easy but more ingredients 🙂

Easy-Peasy Version:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  3. Line each of the muffin cups with a slice of bacon going around the sides, not covering the bottom.
  4. Fill each cup with one egg.
  5. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar.(or parmesan)
  6. Bake for 18 minutes.

    Second version:

    • 6 Eggs
    • 6 oz Heavy Cream
    • 300 g Broccoli
    • 58 g cheddar cheese, shredded
    • 12 slices Bacon
    • To Taste Salt, pepper, garlic powder
    • 3 slices Cheddar Cheese
    Instructions
    1. Cook the bacon until close to done but not crispy, try to keep it flat and straight
    2. Place one piece of bacon in each tin, wrapping it around the outside, depending on how non stick your pan is, you might want to grease it first
    3. Fry the broccoli in the bacon grease from above bacon, cutting the broccoli down once it is softer with the spatula (I would chop it up first)
    4. Distribute the broccoli into the muffin pans equally
    5. Whisk cream, eggs and spices, pour into each muffin, leave some room for expansion
    6. Cook for 20 minutes @ 350 degrees, the top should start browning and the inside should be firm
    7. When they are mostly done, aka browning a little, add ¼ of a slice of cheese to the top of each muffin. Remove and let cool after the cheese melts
