picture051

Ingredients

  • 3 x tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup
  • few drops vanilla essence
  • pinch salt or two (depending on your taste)
  • 60 ml full cream coconut milk = 3g of carbs
  • 350g peanut butter (smooth or crunchy) = 35 g of carbs

Method

Line small flat container with baking paper or foil. (lunch box or loaf tin ok .Melt coconut oil in saucepan over a low heat. Add peanut butter and salt then mix; turn off heat when peanut butter has blended and melted. (heat of saucepan is sufficient now) Add coconut cream, sugar free maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well. Pour mixture into lined container and place in freezer for 1 – 2 hours.

At this point I recommend that before you attempt to clean up you should scrape the saucepan with a spatula or finger and place the gooey goodness in your mouth. Mmmmm

Take out of freezer and cut up into bite size cubes

Carb Maths

(depends on the size of your cubes really) 40g of Carbs x 30 slices of  fudge = 1.33 g of carbs per square

Fruit and Nut Cream Cheese Hack

Ingredients 

1/2 a slab of lowest carb fruit and nut cream cheese you can find (ie read the label) = approx 13 g carbs

1 x 250g philly cream cheese LIGHT =9.75g carbs

1 x tsp cinnamon

stevia to taste

4 x drops vanilla

desiccated coconut as needed (DO NOT MIX THIS) I used a cup = 6 g carbs

1 x bowl for mixing and 1 x dinner plate or lamington tin for rolling and 1 plastic container

Method

You could leave the cheeses to soften at room temperature OR you may microwave on DEFROST for 1 minute.

Spread coconut over desired rolling surface.

Mix everything else in bowl. It will give your muscles a good workout.

Unceremoniously dump the cheese on top of the coconut, cover with coconut so you can shape the cheese into a log.

Slice a slab of the cheese, slice that piece into 1/4s then roll into bite size pieces covering with coconut. Place balls into appropriate plastic container for refrigeration.

Repeat then refrigerate.

Maths

Rounded up to 30g of carbs in total. Coincidently I rolled 30 balls.

Total per ball 1g of carb! Gotta be happy with that!
