Blackberry Crisp - Really more like Blackberry Soggy. I made this as an experiment for our small group on Friday nights. I melted a stick of butter in a casserole dish - a 9x13. I then added my blackberries to the melted butter. Now for the topping. I used coconut flour, almond flour - 1/2 cup of each. Then I put in about 1/4 t. salt and 1 cup of xylitol with a 1/4 t. Stevia. I cut up about 1/2 stick of butter and made the mixture into a crumble. I then sprinkled it over the top of the blackberries and baked it for about 40 minutes at 350. It never did get crisp, and I almost didn't serve it, but I had nothing else. My hubby went out and bought some cookies from the store, but I hated not to have something homemade. So, I put it out with some homemade whipped cream (Heaving Whipping Cream and a sprinkle of xylitol whipped up in the mixer). It was almost gone! Some even had seconds. The taste was great but the texture - ugh. But apparently not so bad to everyone else. Some remarked that it was like a pudding. Even my picky son loved it! So, it is worth a try! Experiment and make improvements! Let me know how it works! Remember to be THM - no flour and no sugar!
This next one is great!
Satisfying Low-Carb Pancakes
1 c. ricotta - I used 1 c. of cottage cheese
1/2 c. flax seed meal
2 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
sweetener to taste (8-12 dashes of Stevia Extract) I used stevia powder
1 1/2 t. vanilla
Mix this all together and cook on a griddle. It makes 12 4" pancakes. I served them with real maple syrup, but you could also use Greek yogurt with berries. This is considered an S breakfast. Serve with Sausage or bacon.
I wish I had taken pics, but I didn't. The recipe I followed had the cinnamon as optional, but I can't see leaving it out. It really gave it a great flavor.
So, since I don't have any food pics, I will share a couple of yarns I posted to my shop last night!
Grab a cup of coffee, a good book and a blanket. Snuggle in the arm of the couch and enjoy your day! You have my permission!!
God Bless You!
