I can get them at quite a few places around here but I just went to netrition to check out the flavors, and noticed they were not shipping the ones that come in the glass bottles.

Yeah, that occurs every winter. The glass ones may freeze and bust when shipping.

I made a coconut cupcake. I made some angel coconut by putting some unsweetened coconut in a bowl an added some hot water and Splenda and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then I drained the coconut, and reserved the sweetened coconut water to use in my cupcake. For my cupcake I took a 1/4 cup and scooped up the mix and shook it to level it at the top. Then I put the 1/4 cup if mix in my 6 oz ramekin which measures 3 1/2 inches across and is 1 1/2 inches deep. To that I added 1 tbsp powdered erythritol, 2 tbsp of coconut, 1/4 cup coconut water, 10 drops of liquid Splenda and 5 drops of coconut Capella flavor drops. Mixed it all up and smoothed the top with a spoon so it was level. Then I microwaved it in my 800 watt microwave for a minute. Removed it from the ramekin and let cool on a rack. Then I frosted it with carb counters white frosting mix, and sprinkled some toasted coconut on top.

So, here's the measurements for one cupcake/muffin. You can use whatever add ins you want with this recipe. Vanilla and other flavorings, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, gingerbread spices, fruits and/or chocolate chips, nuts.

1/4 cup mix (after scoping and shaking it level)
1 tbsp erythritol
1/4 cup liquid (water, da Vinci syrup, milk, half and half) if you use an unsweetened liquid you may want to use more sweetener.
10 drops liquid Splenda (or whatever sweeteners you like) it depends on how sweet you like your baked goods.


Microwaved in a 6 oz ramekin that measures 3 1/2inches across and 1 1/2 inches deep, in an 800 watt microwave oven for 1 minute.

That's exactly what I used

What wonderful directions, Gina! And the cake looks absolutely amazing. Although my cinnamon cake turned out dry (now I am sure it was overcooking that did it), I am going to try again with your proportions. In fact, I have some unsweetened coconut that has been crying out to be used! Thank you!

Thanks guys, I just love this flour mix and all the different flavors we can make with it. Making one at a time really helps with portion control.

Now I just need to work on the crunchy, salty snack ideas lol it's always something right!

Ok, so everyone knows by now just how much I love this flour mix, so it shouldn't be any surprise that I have a new idea for them!! You might wanna sit down for this one!! Two words, donut holes!!! Oh yes, and they're every bit just as good as those ones from Duncan's only they're low carb and use this Fantastic Flour Mix! Just so you don't think I'm off my rocker, I had both of my kids try them, my son who isn't so picky scarfed them up and my very picky daughter said they are awesome!! They're cakey on the inside and the coconut crunch topping rivals all. You have got to try these!!

For the donut part this is what I used

1 cup flour mix
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup erythritol
15 drops Splenda liquid
1 tsp vanilla
15 drops coconut Capella drops

Coconut crunch topping

Powdered erythritol mixed with water to make a thin glaze
Toasted angel coconut made by soaking unsweetened coconut in Splenda

Dip cooled donut hole in the glaze, then roll in the coconut.

Here they are!!

Thud. That's me passing out. You should do a cookbook. Those look divine and are my weakness. How do you ever lose or maintain your weight making all the stuff you do? You must be creating stuff all day, every day! Amazing.

No not really, I usually have a muffin in the morning with my coffee and all I eat is dinner. I tried one of these and let the kids have the rest.

I forgot that I added 1 tbsp melted butter but I don't think it's really needed.

Individual Cherry Cake

Using Ouiz's mix exactly as written in post #1, I just made a single white cake with cherry topping (some sugar-free cherry pie filling I had open in the fridge from a dessert I made for DH). It was amazing! I used a little cube-shaped square glass container I found at the Dollar Store to make this.

I took 1/4 c. of the mix in a small glass dish, stirred in 2T. Torani vanilla syrup mixed with 2T. water. Stirred to a smooth cake-like batter. Cooked in MW on HI for 1 minute in my 1150 watt MW. Tipped it out with the help of a knife and spooned some canned SF cherry pie filling on top. Mmmmm. Pineapple mixed with some SF erythritol/molasses fake brown sugar and butter is next. Should make a great little pineapple upside down cake!

Thanks again for this wonderful mix, Ouiz! Endless posibilities!

Gina - how many did you get with that recipe? Any idea of the carb count per donut hole? I know I'd need to eat at least 3 with my coffee for breakfast and from the looks of yours I'm sure I could "choke" down even more ! They are scrumptious looking - matter of fact all of your posts using this mix look wonderful - I love your ideas!!
