Cherie thanks for the recipe!! whoever figured the carbs did make a mistake (i check EVERYTHING as i know how many dont figure correctly.
for the entire recipe...
5.6 g carb in the almond flour
2g in the baking powder
1g in the cinnamon
2.4 g in the eggs
4.8 g in the cream cheese .8 g in the vanilla

that totals 16.6 for the whole recipe, which is 4.1 g carbs for 1/4 of the recipe, or a serving. I did NOT count the swerve, which would add another 36 g carb to the total, i personally dont count erythritol as it doesnt effect me.
i think whoever figured didnt think do do the cinnamon, baking powder, and vanilla...
They are still quite low at 4.15 total g carb per serving, but for those of us that count every carb, 2 carbs can make a difference!!

they sound good i'll have to try them!!! my recipe has no almond flour in them but the rest is pretty much the same (i do 2 eggs, 2 oz creeam cheese, a pinch of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp baking powder and i eat all 6 of the waffles it makes for around 2 g of carbs. )

Again..thanks for sharing!! dont want to discourage you..I just always do the figuring to be sure!

Keto waffles 4 servings, each serving is 2 waffles
Ingredients List

~ cooking spray
2/3 cup fine almond flour
3 Tbsp granulated brown erythritol-based sweetener (what ever sweetner you like)
1½ tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon or nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt
4 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup (4 oz) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1½ tsp pure vanilla extract



365 Calories33g Fat12g Protein6g Total Carbs2g Fiber4g

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 200°F (95°C). Place a wire rack on a large, rimmed baking sheet.
Heat a 4-slice grid waffle maker on the high setting and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a blender, combine the almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon/nutmeg, salt, eggs, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract. Blend until mixed through and smooth, about 1 minute.
Pour the batter into the prepared waffle iron, making sure to cover the entire waffle plate, corners, and edges with batter. Close the lid and cook, checking every 3 minutes until they are deep golden-brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Set the finished waffles on the prepared wire rack and transfer it to the oven. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve.

I made these this am, YUMMY very cake like.. probably because I had never made waffles before and didn't leave them on long enough!
I made 4 out of ignorance of how too, my kitchen is a disaster. My husband LOVED them and even he couldn't eat it all.

You get More of what you focus on! Make sure you want MORE of what your thinking about, talking about and what your looking at!

well all i can do is give it a try...and i agree its pretty sweet on its own. so wish i could use mayo.

when Paul was here we had the BEST crab stuffed mushrooms at the seafood restaurant we went to...i came home and was looking up recipes and they all had mayo and i thought...maybe its ok again..and i called the place and asked...the owner said no..no mayo...

i never would have thought anyone would put mayo in a mushroom stuffing, but most of the online recipes have it. go figure. glad it didnt that wouldnt have been pretty.lol

Holly you are probably the queen of subbing!! HWC will probably work just fine. I just find it a little on the sweet side (even without sweetener) compared to mayo or sour cream. With all the other ingredients, you probably won't even taste it.

I would think you could use sour cream instead of the mayo. It's more the same consistency.

Sharing another winner. This chicken is so flavorful! I made an entire family pack of chicken thighs (twice!) and froze the leftovers. Still juicy and delicious. Oh, and did I mention this is a Crock-Pot / slow cooker recipe? emoticon

I'm not sure if this has been shared or not. I'm new to Keto but I love this recipe for Chicken Florentine Soup.
Each time I've made it, I've put in a healthy splash of lemon juice! My secret ingredient.

I have also substituted the heavy cream with a brick of cream cheese once and another time some plain non-fat yogurt. I always leave out the artichoke.
Enjoy!!

I made this Keto chicken salad (found on internet) with a few changes.

I ate a cup serving for dinner. I'll have to figure out the stats.

½ cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
📷2 tablespoons Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning, Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix Packet and three cups shredded cooked chicken
I made this chicken salad but cut Hidden Valley mix in half, added extra mayo to make it moist, added black pepper, and chopped Spring onion, the white part. 3 chopped boiled eggs.
Very tasty!

Just a disclaimer for those that want to be 100% keto..that peanuts and peanut butter are NOT considered keto compliant as they are legumes not nuts.
That said..i eat it in small amounts very infrequently..because i love it. Just a heads up for those that want to be totally correct with it.

Recipe looks good KD!

Keto Beef Stew

This rich, thick beef stew is packed with beef and veggies making it a hearty dinner on chilly nights.
Prep Time 20 minutes 
Cook Time 2 hours 30 minutes 
Total Time 2 hours 50 minutes 

Ingredients

- 1 ½ pound chuck roast, cut into cubes
- 1 tablespoon avocado oil, more as needed
- 3 teaspoons salt, divided
- 4 1/2 cups beef broth, divided
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 large bay leaf
- 1 pound turnips, cut into bite-sized chunks
- 2 medium carrots, cut into coins
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced

Instructions

1. Heat a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the oil and heat until shimmering.
2. Sprinkle the beef with 1 teaspoon of salt. Add the beef to the pot in a single layer (you’ll likely need to work in batches) and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes per batch. Add additional oil as needed between batches. Remove all beef to a bowl and set aside. 
3. Add ½ cup beef broth and vinegar to the dutch oven and scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan over medium-high heat.
4. Add the beef back to the skillet along with the beef broth, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cover. Cook over low heat for 1 ½ hours or until beef is tender.
5. Add the turnips, carrots, onion, celery, garlic, and remaining 2 teaspoons salt. Stir to combine.
6. Remove ½ cup of liquid from the pot to a small bowl or measuring cup. Sprinkle with the xanthan gum and whisk well to incorporate. Return mixture to the pot and simmer uncovered for 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
7. Remove bay leaf and sprinkle with parsley before serving.
Notes


You may use 1/2 cup of dry red wine in place of the beef broth to deglaze the pan.
I did not measure the servings by volume. Just divide evenly among six bowls.

PS Reduce the carbs by leaving out the carrots and adding more turnip, swedes, celery etc - lower carb veges anyway.

there is right around half a gram of carbs in one mushroom. the regular, white ones, anyhow.
put it in a cup, you might get 2 in a 2 quarter cup, so figure 1.2 grams carb for 2 whole mushrooms.
the discrepancy comes when you start slicing and cooking them. you can fit a lot more sliced in a quarter cup than whole. then you cook them and they shrink up, so you can fit even more. so yes..a quarter cup of sliced, cooked mushrooms is going to have a lot more carbs than 2 whole ones.
i just slice a couple up and toss them in a pan with butter. but i DO stick with about 2. unless i'm way under on carbs (i stick to about 10 total carbs most days). its enough..i get the flavor, the texture, and i dont go over on carbs.

1. To a tall, wide mouth mason jar add the lemon juice first, then the egg, seasonings, and finally the oil. Let the ingredients rest for 20 seconds or so.
2. Put the immersion blender all the way at the bottom of the mason jar. Turn it on high speed and leave it at the bottom of the jar for about 20 seconds. The mayonnaise will immediately begin to set up and fill the jar.
3. After the mayonnaise is almost all the way set, slowly pull the immersion blender towards the top of the jar without taking the blades out of the mayonnaise. Then, slowly push it back towards the bottom of the jar. Repeat this step a couple of times until all of the ingredients are well well incorporated.
4. Taste and add more salt, if desired.

Ultra thick, creamy, speedy and with no fancy appliances required!  This homemade paleo and keto mayonnaise has never been easier, or  better. 
Course Sauces, Spreads
Cuisine American, French
Keyword dairy free, gluten free, grain free, keto, low carb, paleo
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 16 tablespoons
Calories 94 kcal
Ingredients

- 1 egg yolk
- 2-4 teaspoons lemon juice freshly squeezed (use larger amount for a lemony mayo)
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1/2 cup avocado oil
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Instructions

1. Add egg yolk, lemon juice, mustard, salt and water to a medium bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. 
2. Whisking  constantly (you can use the whisk attachment in your immersion  blender!), drizzle in a few drops of your oil at a time. Your mixture  should be opaque, with all the oil incorporating into the mixture. Once  your mixture emulsifies (i.e. begins to thicken), you can increase the  speed of oil a tad into a small stream rather than drop by drop. Keep  whisking and adding in the oil until a rich and thick mayo emerges  (always best to go slower the first time around!). 
3. Keep stored in the fridge, in an airtight container, for about 3-4 days. 
Recipe Notes

Please note that one batch yields about 1 cup (i.e. 16 tablespoons!).

Keto Shortbread Cookies

6 tablespoons of salted butter, softened
1/2 cup sweetener (I used Natvia)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Zest of 1 lemon (optional)
2 1/2 cups of almond meal/flour

Beat butter and sweetener together till light and fluffy
Add vanilla essence and lemon zest and beat in
Keep beating and add almond flour, half a cup at a time. The mixture should press together easily when you have incorporated all the meal.

Form into small balls (I use a small spoon) and place on baking paper lined sheet. I usually get 25 or 26 balls
Press the balls down with the back of the spoon to form a little dish
Bake in a 350F/160C oven for 19 -- 12 minutes, till the edges start to go golden
Allow to cool on the tray before handling
They freeze well
I calculate 2 carbs per cookie
I got the recipe from the Four Ingredient Keto Cookbook.

Bab~ those meat scoops sound good! What a fun idea!

My recipe for Fauxtato Tots: (sorry, I forgot to post it the other day)
(makes 24 total ~ 4 servings of 6 tots)

1 (12 oz) bag frozen riced cauliflower
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 375*. Have a 24-cup mini muffin tin ready

Heat the frozen riced cauliflower in the microwave as instructed on the package. Drain and pat with paper towels to remove any excess liquid.

In a large bowl, mix together the cauliflower, Parmesan, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until fully combined. Add the olive oil and cheddar and mix together completely.

Spoon the mixture into the mini muffin tin, dividing evenly among the cups. Using a fork, press the mixture down into each cup. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the tots are golden brown. Serve hot.

Store any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. To reheat, defrost if frozen, and microwave for 30 to 45 seconds.

Night,
The mushroom stuffed chicken is from a Polish cookbook. It did not even need adaptation. I was very pleased with the taste too.

Sorry, just catching up. I think that collagen, like pork rinds, would be considered an incomplete protein. I wouldn't count it toward your protein amounts for the day.

Bab i did that with one called bacon and butter. most recipes have more carbs in a small serving than are recommended in a full day. total waste of money.

there are 2 cookbook authors i highly recommend..the first and in my opinion best..anything by Carolyn Ketchum..her website is below i got the books on amazon (there are 6 titles)

www.alldayidreamaboutfood.com

and Maria Emmerich..website

mariamindbodyhealth.com/


both have free recipes on their sites. i like Carolyns much better, but both are really good.

Bab,,,i did that with one called bacon and butter. most of the recipes are more than an entire days carbs.

really good cookbooks worth your money..anything from Carolyn Ketchum..she has 6 cookbooks out...there are some recipes with more carbs than i would use, but most are around 5 and under.

the other, not as good but still ones i bought and use a lot..Maria Emmerich. she has a bunch of cookbooks out too.

both have websites with free recipes..Carolyns is

Yesterday my book order keto for carb lovers arrived. It looks like some of the recipes are good but..... so far many would need adaptation as they are rather high in protein and or carbs . Oh well

no clue with pea protein...peas arent keto as they are legumes. they are probably pretty high? i order my protein powder off amazon.
the chicken has zero carbs, the whey protein powder the kind i have has 2 grams in a scoop. Paprika has 4 g carbs in a tablespoon...garlic powder has 7 grams in a tablespoon, one egg has .6 g
you have to get the counts for what you used, add them together, then divide by number of servings. so the way i do it about 4.5 grams in the entire recipe...and a pound of chicken makes enough for 5 meals for me, so its around 1.25 carbs a serving. i would think the pea powder probably has around the same carbs but i dont know.
anything you make, get the nutrition for each ingredient, add them all up then divide by your serving size. 3 oz of meat is plenty for me, so out of a pound i get around 5 servings. others eat more..or less. so its hard to say..plus i dont know the ingedients you used or the quantities..

We tried the chicken nugget recipe and they were awesome! DH was very happy, since he's always had an obsession for fried chicken. Here in the back woods where I live it was hard to get protein powder, the only one I could find that wasn't flavored chocolate or vanilla was some Pea Protein powder... so I got it, and it worked just fine. What is the carb count using this recipe for, say, 4 oz of chicken?

Collagen is the protein in gelatin. Collagen peptides are what you get when you snip the protein into smaller pieces so it dissolves more readily and doesn't gel.

I apologize for the dumb question, but is collagen peptides (which I have on hand) the same or similar to protein powder?

Joni Great questions!! heres how i do the gravy..you can play around with it and/or add or delete what you dont like. i never measure on the gravy, sorry..more because i never know how many drippings i'll have!!

so..i add a little butter if there isnt a lot of drippings. for, say a cup of gravy i will add in a couple ounces of cream cheese and heat and stir until its melted. a stick or immersion blender comes in handy here if you have one..if not just use a whisk.
now..i pour in heavy cream to the amount of gravy i want. and heat it..stirring all the time. taste it..adjust seasonings. you can use just broth for the "base", or drippings or look for no carb no bad ingredient bouillon and use a water base.
so..then for me its not thick enough.i like thick gravy. so..i mix maybe a teaspoon of butter with a quarter teaspoon of xanthan gum..into a paste. then stir that in..whisk constantly. yes i said 1/4 tsp..this stuff is potent and if you use too much you get a gloppy inedible mess. you can always add more. alternatively you can sprinkle it over the top, but its easier to mix in and distribute if you do the butter thing. when its thick enough for you, you are done!! store in the fridge.

Chickie nuggies (sorry my kids have called them that forever, and when baby yoda said it..well..

cut boneless thighs or breasts into strips or bite sized pieces. and again..this is where i do it by feel but will try to get the measurements right..

to a half pound of chicken:

1 egg, beaten to dip chicken in


the "breading"
about 2 tablespoons unflavored protein powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

mix well together.

now, dip the chicken pieces into the beaten egg, then roll in the breading. you can put them in a bag and shake, i pour the breading on a paper plate and roll them around with a fork. just be sure they are all coated. egg left over? double dip them..it just makes them crunchier!

now. heat up some olive oil in a skillet. maybe an 8th to a quarter inch deep. i always put in a couple tablespoons butter, too, for better flavor.
make sure its hot..toss a piece of the chicken in..if sizzling its ready to put the rest in. put all the pieces of chicken in, dont crowd too much. let them cook, you can lift and check underneath.when they are golden and crispy flip them over and cook on other side. be careful not to burn...and when you think you are done grab the biggest one and cut into it..make sure there is no pink you dont want overdone chicken!!

I use this to dip them in..easy and quick no cooking and as good as any store bought!! alldayidreamaboutfood.com/sugar-free-bbq-s

auce


hope this helps...any questions just message me!!!
