Low Carb Cheese Stuffed “Cornbread” Muffins

 

When I’m eating soup, I want some sort of bread to go along with it. I love a piece of grain free cornbread to sop up all the flavors. This is a really fun Grain free and low carb muffin because it is stuffed with cheese.

This low carb cheese stuffed muffin goes really well with Tomato soup. When I think of tomato soup, I immediately think of a grilled cheese sandwich. This is an easy grain free substitution to go along with your soup.

My daughter loves cheese sticks. She thought it was such a fun baking trick to cut the mozzarella into one inch pieces and stick them in the muffin batter. read more

Homemade sugar free Dark Chocolate Peanut Clusters can be easy to make at home. I started making my own sugar free candy a few month ago when I realized how much sugar was in even the dark chocolate candy bars. I love chocolate and wanted a way to enjoy it without all the sugar.

 

Why should you make homemade candy?

1) Cheaper

Good quality sugar free candy is expensive!

2) Quick and easy dessert

Dessert can be ready in less than 20 minutes!

3) Healthy

Using coconut oil and stevia, these candies are actually quite healthy for you… so no guilt if you happen to eat the whole batch in one sitting (not me of course, cough) read more

Gluten Free Cake Round Up

Gluten Free Cake Round Up

This past year, my husband and I discovered that we both were reacting to gluten in our food. Not so much of an allergy, but definitely an intolerance.

Did you know that up to 6-10% estimated people are celiacs read more

Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mousse

Glucomannan dessert

Hot Chocolate Mousse

{Sugar Free, Dairy Free Option, Gluten Free, Low Calorie, Low Fat}

 

Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mousse is the perfect sugar free treat that you won’t have any guilt over not sharing. It is light and airy. This is also gluten free with a dairy free option.

This Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mousse is made with almond milk and glucomannan as its thickening agent. Together with flavors of chocolate and vanilla blend into the perfect dessert or snack.

I topped mine with cacao nibs because I’m kind of obsessed with them right now. If you like dark chocolate, you need to check them out. They can be eaten raw, but we are enjoying them sprinkled on desserts and oatmeal for a special touch.

My husband and daughter both were impressed with how simple it was to make and how delicious the final product is. Sometimes you want to taste of hot chocolate without the heat. This will be the perfect dessert for just that occasion.

For Trim Healthy Mama’s: This recipe makes 2 large servings and would be a Fuel Pull snack or dessert because it is low in fat and carbs. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Crunch Chocolate Mug Cake

What could be better than peanut butter and chocolate in a single serving cake?

I love this peanut butter crunch chocolate mug cake for a dessert recipe because it is sugar free, grain free, and gluten free. 

I’m loving single serving cakes because you can enjoy them fresh out of the oven or microwave – which is always when they taste the best. I also love topping this with Peanut flavored Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is so versatile. I love how it can be a sub for sour cream or be sweetened to act like an icing. 

I buy all my specialty products from Amazon.com. I am a subscribe and save member, so I get 20% off my monthly orders. This is one of my saving money tricks for my groceries. 

My husband thought this Peanut Butter Crunch Chocolate Mug Cake reminded him of Reese’s Peanut Butter candy (which is our favorite). What do you think?

Trim and Healthy Asian Lettuce Wraps

Trim and Healthy Asian Lettuce Wraps

I fell in love with lettuce wraps not to long ago… and I am hooked. We had them first at Cheesecake Factory. They were chicken and mushroom lettuce wraps and they were amazing! I was hooked from the first bite. I knew I would need to figure out a way to make these at home, because I couldn’t afford to go to Cheesecake Factory as often as I would want to eat these Asian lettuce wraps.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Since opening my world to lettuce wraps, I have a love for all things wrapped in lettuce. I know that if you haven’t tried them yet, you may not think they could be that wonderful… but just wait til you try these!!! I am going to be working on Mexican Lettuce Wraps, Peanut Sauce Lettuce Wraps, and Cheeseburger lettuce wraps.

Most lettuce wraps use a sauce that has been thickened by flour or another off plan thickener. This recipe is unique because it uses Glucomannan Powder (affiliate link). This amazingly versatile low carb thickener is made from the Konjac root. It is tasteless and calorie free. For an even added bonus, it can help keep you full longer and help you lose weight! I’d say that is a win-win situation!  Learn more about glucomannan in my post here.

If you are a Trim Healthy Mama: These are an S – or Satisfying meal.

Because this is an S meal, you could make it with any type of ground meat you would like: Pork or Beef would be great in this recipe.
