Sugar Free Nutty Mix (Not induction) I call this stuff Crack cause you don't want to stop eating it. So make this an occassional treat

1 6 ounce pkg pecan halves,
2 tbl butter,
 2 tbl brown sugar diabetisweet brown (it has been discontinued, and because I still have some) or see below,
1/2 can lightly salted mixed nuts
4 drops liquid splenda which is the equivalent of 1 1/2 tsp per drop.
Melt butter, sweeteners in sauce pan add pecans stir till well coated. Keep stirring don't leave the pan. When sweeteners begin to candy on your spoon spread out on plate let cool completely, break apart pecans that may be stuck together. Add mixed salted nuts and sugar free chocolate chips, and candied pecans. Toss to mix.....

Fantastic but definitely something one may struggle with portion control. Would be great to take to a party.

I used a 6 oz bag of pecans halves, 1/2 a 12 oz can of mixed nuts, and 1/2 bag of Hershey s/f chocolate chips.

Coconut Flour Pie Crust (GF)
with NO bake Cheesecake
Ingredients-

1/2 cup unsalted Butter, Melted
2 Eggs (room temperature)
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup splenda or liquid equivalent

In a food processor combine eggs, melted butter, salt, splenda, and mix, add the almond flour and mix till combined add the coconut flour last and process. You should use all of the 1/2 cup but you may not depending on how absorbent the coconut flour is. I haven't had an issue with this recipe. FYI: Coconut flour is the most absorbent product I have ever used and it does require eggs as it doesn't contain gluten and it will be to dry and crumbly without the eggs. Press into sprayed springform pan (I put parchment cut into a circle in the bottom of the pan for easy removal) Bake 350 for 10 minutes

It is very good.

Doughnut Holes (low carb)

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 large egg... See More
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
splenda
cinnamon -- for topping

Taste- and texture-wise, these fall somewhere in between true doughnuts and funnel cakes. They cook very fast, so make sure you have everything on hand!

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a heavy skillet until it's hot enough for frying. While the oil heats, beat the egg lightly with the melted butter, then add the Splenda, protein powder, and vanilla. Whisk together until all the lumps are pretty much broken up, then let it rest a minute or two and whisk a bit more (batter will still have a grainy look to it, but that's fine). Using a large tablespoon or serving spoon, drop the batter by large tablespoonfuls into the hot oil in batches of 4. Fry until bottoms are golden-brown, which will only take a few seconds, then flip. Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with Splenda and cinnamon to taste and serve hot.
