I make my crust first with 1 stick softened butter, 3/4 cup almond flour, 1/4 cup golden flax meal, Blend of 1 cup xilitol/splenda ....mix well and press into your cheesecake pan, set aside
Then I blend 5 bricks full fat cream cheese (softened) with 3/4 cup xilitol and 1/2 cup of splenda ( I use contentrate) and a tsp vanilla, 5 eggs, 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup sour cream....blend well and pour into pan on unbaked crust and place in a water bath ( another pan with water coming halfway up cheesecake pan) and place into oven preheated to 300 for exactly 70 minutes, then turn oven off leaving cheesecake in oven until oven cools, then chill in fridge a few hours and eat
I sometimes slice fresh strawberries sweentened with same sugar alcohol mix to taste and thicken with thick n thin not starch and set aside for those who want topping
Enjoy!
My family that does not eat low carb love this!
I am not sure of all the nutritional info but know it is no more then 5 carbs for a good sized slice, serves 12!

Dil and I just come up with a killer cinnamon rolls, carbquilk mixed with carbcountdown milk and about a stilck of butter, mix into sticky dough, then roll out, mix 1/2 cup splenda with 1/2 cup Xilitol and 2 tbs cinnamon and sprinkle over dough, roll up and cup into small 2 oz rolls, then take a brick of cream cheese mix with vanilla, sugar mix, and heavy cream to taste and frost warm rolls with CreamCheese frosting, YUM!!
Enjoy!
Cream cheese frosting,
I never measure, just take a block of cream cheese and use flavered davincis (liquid flavored splenda) of choice and heavy cream, sugar alcohols, (if you blend 2 of them together you lose bitter aftertaste) to get right consistancy.

Low-Carb Breakfast Scramble

Start your day with a filling breakfast. But don't trash your carb-count. This is diabetic friendly.

Serving Size: 2
Main Ingredient: Eggs
Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Sandwiches, Simple - Easy, Quick, Saute, Low Fat, Vegetarian, Diabetic, Low Sugar

-= Ingredients =-
1/2 cup Egg Substitute
1/2 cup Low-fat cottage cheese
1 tablespoon Soy protein powder
~~ -- Non-stick spray -- ~~
2 strips Turkey bacon ; - cooked & crumbled
1 teaspoon Parsley ; - or cilantro, chopped
1 large Low Carb Tortilla
1/4 cup Salsa ; - Choose your heat level

-= Instructions =-
Place the cottage cheese in a tea strainer and allow it to drain excess liquid.
Cut a tortilla in half and place each half on a plate.
Blend the egg substitute with the soy protein then add in the cottage cheese.
Scramble this in a sprayed pan until it starts to set. Add in the crumbled bacon and stir in the parsley.

When the eggs have set place 1/2 of the mixture on each tortilla. Placing it slightly to one side of center makes the next step easier.

Put a spoonful of salsa on top of the eggs then roll the tortilla into a cone shape. Put the rest of the salsa on the top as a garnish. Sprinkle with more cilantro (or green onion) if you wish.

Serve immediately.
