LC Cinnamon Donut Holes

Finally got to making some Donut holes. I searched and found a few but not what I was looking for. So this is what I came up with.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat your Pops Maker or preheat the oven to 300c. Mix up all the ingredients. Make 14 balls, place in Pops maker or on a baking sheet. If you’re doing them in the oven, you might want to flatten them a bit. Bake for 15 mins or until golden brown. I rolled them in some cinnamon and splenda.

I think next time I will try it with pumpkin spice.

LC Tilapia Balls

I recently bought a used Babycakes Cupcake Maker and a Pops Maker. Both are like new. A well  spent 9.00.

The last few days I have been on the hunt for Low Carb recipes that I can make in them. Well, I found one that I tried last night and it was very good. Here is the link to the recipe I found –> Clicky here

Ingredients

  • 2 tilapia fillets OR other mild white fish
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • and whatever spices you want.

I baked the fish, let it cool. Then into a bowl pulled apart. Mix in the rest and then make some small balls and into the pops maker. It takes about 8-10 mins of cooking time to get them golden and crispy. Made some coleslaw and just used whatever I could find for dipping sauce, Dijon mustard, BBQ and salsa ranch dressing.

Hubby and I are not big on fish, but these fish balls were tasty.

 

LC-Cheese Taquitoes

Tonight’s dinner was another tasty treat. I didn’t feel like doing a big meal or standing for a long time in the kitchen. I looked in my fridge and noticed that there wasnt much in there. That means  you got do what you can with what you have. Next time I am going to try a different cheese.

Ingredients:

  • Round Provolone cheese
  • Ground beef
  • Mexican spices or whatever you like

Pre heat oven to 375c

Cook up your meat and set it aside. Take your cheese and slice thinly. Put parchment paper on a cookie sheet, Spray a bit of pam on the paper. Place your cheese far enough from each other so they don’t melt together. Pop into oven for about 8-10 mins. Remove from oven and spoon out the beef on each slice then roll up the cheese. Put them on a plate with some salsa and guacamole. I also made a big salad. That’s it! Enjoy!

LC Pepper Poppers

These were so good I will be making them again. I don’t like Jalapenos so I used regular peppers.

So easy to make. Took about 15 to mix up and 25 mins to bake.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large peppers ( I used yellow and red)
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 6-8 pieces of crisp bacon or 2 tbs real bacon bits
  • 2tbs Green onions or regular onions
  • Spices- Up to you on this. I used some smoked chipolte, roasted red pepper with garlic
  • 1 cup shredded cheese ( I used jalapeno Jack)
  • Parmesan

Clean and cut your peppers. Put them on parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Mix up all the ingredients. Put into the peppers. Sprinkle with Parmesan and a few extra pieces of bacon. Into the over at 375c for 20 minutes then watch it until the tops are golden. Remove from oven and eat. YUM!

Ready for the oven.

Ready for the oven.
