Thanks! I want to get some more almond flour recipes as I have not cooked with it yet but it is great for low carb cooking. I will try this. I found a cinnamon roll recipe which is low carb. Spray a coffee cup with olive oil. mix one egg, 1.5 scoops of vanilla whey with a pinch of stevia and some cinnamon. Microwave for 45 seconds. dump the roll out of the cup and cut in half. Top with either cream cheese or Greek Yogurt and some powdered stevia and cinnamon.

To be honest, I don’t know if there is an official food ping list. However, I do know that carlo3b posts recipes and expresses what appears to be heartfelt concern about both his family and this Republic. So, if there is anyone worthy of a food ping, I figure it is carlo3b. But maybe there is, or should be, a food ping list as well?

Blueberry Almond Muffins

You can use Fresh or Frozen berries, if you are using frozen berries, there is no need to defrost them — in fact, they hold their shape better during cooking if you add them to the mixture while still frozen. You can also add a teaspoon of cinnamon, and/or a touch of nutmeg for an interesting variation. Raspberries are a wonderful substitution as well.. Enjoy! Carlo

Ingredients:

2 cups almond flour
3 rounded tablespoons Splenda
1 rounded teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs (room temperature)
1/2 cup butter, melted (Margarine is not recommended)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter and line 12 large muffin pans with muffin tin liners..

In a medium bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. In a larger bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (but not the berries).

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined (do not beat).

Finally, add the berries and briefly mix again.

Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin pans and bake for 20-25 minutes until risen, golden brown and set in the middle.

Leave in the pans on a cooling rack for 5 minutes, and then loosen carefully with a knife before turning out to cool completely. Makes 12 wonderful muffins.

Drain on paper towels and wrap around the side of the filet Mignon, attaching the ends with a toothpick.

2. Season the filet with salt and pepper and sauté in a little bacon grease until browned on both sides.

3. Transfer to a preheated 450F (230C) oven and roast to an internal temperature of 125F (50C) for medium rare, about 8 to 10 minutes.

This is a recipe that was given to me years ago, and I wish I could remember where, and from whom, so I could credit it properly.. It’s a good one.. Carlo

Almond Flour Apricot and Almond Cream Cake

This recipe is based on a traditional British cake called a Victoria Sandwich Cake. Victoria Sandwich Cake is a plain, or yellow, cake which is baked in two pans and then sandwiched together with whipped cream and strawberry jam. This is my version for low-carbers, which is made with canned apricots instead of jam and ground almonds instead of flour. I challenge any non low-carber to realize that it isn’t a regular cake!

Ingredients:

1 cup butter (at room temperature)
2 rounded tablespoons Splenda
5 eggs (at room temperature)
2 cups ground almonds (almond flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
1/2 cup heavy cream
5 apricot halves from a can of apricots in water

Directions:

Butter and line two 8-inch round baking pans with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the first seven ingredients (plus almond extract, if using) together in a food processor until smooth.

Divide the mixture between the two baking pans, level the tops and bake for about 30 minutes until firm in the center.

Remove from the oven and leave on a cooling rack for five minutes before loosening with a knife and turning out onto the racks. Peel off the baking paper and leave to cool completely.

When cooled, whip the cream until fairly thick and “spreadable.” Drain the apricots and chop into small chunks, then mix them into the whipped cream.

Turn one of the cakes upside down and spread the cream mixture over it (like buttering a piece of bread!) Place the other cake on top of the cream and press lightly to sandwich the cakes together. Serve cut into wedges.
Serves 10.

Per serving (one slice): 6.2g carbohydrates; 2.4g fiber; 7.3g protein; 34.7g fat; 355 calories

Wow, thanks!

Pinging myself to this thread for later.

The recipe looks great. I’m going back to low carbing after Thanksgiving. I remember when I did it a few years ago, it was pretty easy after the first few days. But I so did miss the occasional piece of cake.

Yes, just checked and carlo3b is a chef and his recipes are of the mouth-watering variety. Can’t wait to order the almond flour for the apricot confection!

I got this recipe online a few years back and it helps to keep me on track. I'm 62 and been doing low carb for 2 years. I'm in better health now than when I was young.

Low Carb Chocolate Bark

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 oz peanuts (optional)

1 packet truvia, or the sweetner of your choice

Mix all the ingredients together and spread in a plastic wrap lined loaf pan. Freeze for 5-10 minutes.

A forum I joined a few years ago and has a lot of LC recipes and health info - http://forum.lowcarber.org/index.php?

Haven’t posted there in a long time because I don’t remember my user info and I’m sure the e-mail I used is no longer active either.

I still go and read sometimes while trying to get back on LC. Might see my user name on one of the old threads I posted on and remember.

What would the carb change be if real cane sugar was used instead of Splenda?

Yes I did a couple of the SciFi thread graphics (Babylon 5 and Stargate I think it was), thank you for remembering. My other claims to fame in FReeperdom are the graphic to the Free Iran ping list for DrZin and the artwork for the FReeper Mug that was a promotional giveaway to monthlies a few years ago. /brag :)

You can buy the almond flour at the grocery store in the organic section or buy it on Amazon.com.

Can you, or someone tell me what "Bfl" means, I'm not as hip as I think I am, and have searched this out and am as confused as ever.. Some of the definitions are too far off track, others are, well, not flattering.. LOL
