Craving Sweets
« on: January 21, 2013, 05:25:44 PM »
I'm craving something sweet.  Can anyone suggest something low in carbs that I don't have to make.

Eat a dill pickle.  The taste buds for sweet are close to the taste buds for sour and a dill pickle will often stimulate the sweet ones nearby and curb the craving.

A piece of sugar free candy might do the trick too.

Great idea Andrea!  I'm intrigued....gotta try that the next time  ;)

Failure can be measured by the steps we don't take.

Make the One Minute Muffin!  I make a double batch at breakfast and have half for treat later in the day/evening.  Here is the link and so easy to make http://www.fattoskinny.net/index.php?topic=968.msg7499#msg7499
I use almond flour for mine and add 1 tbsp of heavy cream.
I mix up and pour in plastic bowl and micro wave double batch for 2.35 minutes  :o
                 One-Minute Muffin

I’ll post the original “1-Minute Muffin” recipe I found, but definitely look at the many variations below...


.   Melt 1 T butter in a coffee cup or measuring cup.
.   Mix in ¼ cup flaxseed meal, (can use almond meal, oat fiber, coconut flour or a  mixture, i.e. half flax, half almond)
.   ½ tsp baking powder
.   1 egg
.   Sweetener (to personal taste): 1 tsp xylitol or 1-2 Spenda pkts or 1 T S/F flavored syrup (Torani/Da Vinci)

Mix well – microwave approximately 50-60 seconds (depending on micro wattage).  Turn out and let cool.  Muffin top should look shiny and a little moist. Serve w/butter or cream cheese while warm or plastic wrap for later.

Mi0 Liquid is also great. Just a couple of squirts in water and yummy! I love the Strawberry Watermelon. :)

I say flip through the 400 page FAT TO SKINNY sugar free bakery book and make a batch of Fall Spice Balls or Ginger Snaps or Umpa Doodles. Freeze the cookies so when you do need sweet you can open the freezer and pop one in your mouth.   Of course you could always put FTS Zero Sweetener in your pickle jar for sweet pickles ;-)
