  • D-Feast Friday (The From-Scratch Era v.3) | My Favourite Number
    brownies into nine squares and put a big ol scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top Decadence at its finest The carbohydrate information I ve included is based on the specific ingredients I used Your ingredients may run a bit lower or higher in carbs so I suggest using my value as a guide only Also my carb count does not account for fibre I am of the camp that subtracts grams of fibre from total CHO If you do otherwise please determine your own carbohydrate value for your recipe But enough with the disclaiming On to the brownies Coconut Cherry Brownies 1 3 cup unsalted butter 1 2 cup cocoa powder 6 eggs 3 4 cup sugar 1 2 tsp kosher salt 1 2 tsp pure almond extract 1 2 cup coconut flour 1 2 cup nuts chopped I used equal parts hazelnuts and almonds 1 2 cup coconut flakes 80g dried cherries Preheat oven to 350 Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium low heat Once melted stir in the cocoa powder I find a rubber spatula works well for this job Remove your butter cocoa blend from the heat and allow to cool While the cocoa mixture is cooling beat together your eggs sugar salt and almond extract Once mixed stir in the cocoa mixture and blend well At this point add your coconut flour Whisk the batter until smooth To avoid lumps you may want to either sift or whisk your coconut flour with a wire whisk before adding Once smooth gently fold in your nuts coconut flakes and cherries Pour your batter into a greased 8 square baking pan Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean Let the brownies cool and then

  • Fibre-iffic! | My Favourite Number
    missed the fibre lesson when it comes to carb counting Or is the discussion of plant fibre simply a new element of carb counting education I don t think my lack of fibre knowledge has been severely affecting my overall control However I am hoping that armed with this tidbit of advice I will be able to obtain even tighter control of my blood sugar So for all you carb counters out there it s time to inspect those food labels more closely Contrary to my previous obliviousness two tablespoons of flax seeds only contain one gram of blood sugar affecting carbohydrate despite the fact that the total carbohydrate value measures in at seven grams For those keeners among you interested in learning more about your fibre intake requirements you can check out Health Canada s Dietary Reference Intakes Tables This entry was posted in Diet and Nutrition and tagged carb counting fibre Bookmark the permalink Pumped to Pump Smart Charting 5 Responses to Fibre iffic anna says April 1 2009 at 4 10 pm I hope that kangaroo comment was directed at me Didn t we learn in nutrition about fibre I know we were in different sections but I recall something about fibre being mentioned about it passing through undigested Never did click that it was a carb though Makes sense now Laura Brandes says April 2 2009 at 4 55 pm Yes knowledge of fibre was a component of our post secondary education However when you re in a course entitled Wildlife Nutrition it s just more relevant to apply said knowledge to kangaroos than to yourself Alex says April 7 2009 at 9 25 pm Yeah totally crazy eh I just learned about this I d say a year and a half ago and was equally
