My version of Carbquick cheddar bay biscuits. They are decent. My hubby is eating low carb right now, and he loved them.😊

As I suspected! If you really need a substitute you won’t mind any slight difference to regular flour. But it probably does not taste exactly the same.

Exactly! I am not in love, but will certainly use the Carbquick as needed. I am happy to have it in my pantry, and hubby is very happy to have access to biscuits and whatever else I make with it. Thinking biscuit topping for casseroles, dumplings, Pizza Crust, etc.

Omelette (1 egg) and Regular flour cheddar biscuits (so to me Carbquik tastes only mildly different depending on the seasonings used)

no clue about cal tracking info 😂

I planned to make donuts this morning but my last attempt (read: FAIL ....way too underdone in the middle last time) got me skittish, so instead of making them round shaped, i tried em out "churro" shaped. SUCESSS!

Cinnamon & Sugar Yeasted "Churro-Donuts" Breakfast for the fam... that small one on the right is about the length of my thumb, ate 1/2 of it. Im guessing (and logged in MFP as) 50 calories.

...and the making of bread products continues...

These babies came out of the oven about 1/2 an hour ago and the house still smells yum!

Soft Pretzels!

Had I portioned them out properly so they were the same size (I didn't), they should log in as 147 calories each.

I had one bite (about 1 tbsp worth) to test it out. Turned out pretty good, an Mr. is a fan (he's the one who asked me to make them in the first place). I am not a big soft pretzel fan myself, so the test bite was enough for me....I'm guessing 15 calories for a bite?

Those look amazing. I swear cold weather releases a carb craving hormone.

Thanks! This is the recipe I used but just for the sauce and the prep for the tofu. I didn’t add as much corn starch to the tofu and instead of cooking it on the stove top with oil I threw it in the air fryer at 390 for about 15 minutes until crispy. I then tossed it in the sauce.

For the prep of the tofu it said to add soy sauce and oil to it but I used a drizzle of sesame oil instead of regular.
