Now I want donuts! Well, actually I don't because I am not recovered from yesterday, but soon I will want donuts, lol! And I have a mini donut pan that I haven't used for awhile.

Thanks again for all your lovely submissions. Also, the manufacturer who contacted me has a link to this thread and is likely reading it

Those donuts look marvelous and I do have a mini-size and regular-size electric donut maker. (I'm a cookbook and kitchen appliance hoarder, LOL)

I bit the bullet and ordered some Tagatose to try plus some pea protein powder.

sweetener ????

Ouiz, when you make the brown sugar blend of E and molasses are you using blackstrap molasses or just regular molasses? I picked up a couple bags of the Kroger brand Ideal brown that was on clearance and I really like it (it actually had Ideal on the back label so they must make it for Kroger).


Also, Ouiz, you need to market this stuff and come up with a cookbook to sell along with it. I've tried so many different flour types over the years and this is the first one to truly get me excited. It tastes great and is low-carb but lower calorie and really not that expensive to whip up. I volunteer to be a member of your test kitchen .
On the Bobo sweetener do you think we could use the sucralose powder, if so how much would we add?

Yes they do. I had 4 HC people eat these without me saying anything.

They said wonderful. These are not as cakey. Very buttery it is so close.

I think we are on the verge.

sucralose ???

There have been a few other times when I had thought to myself that I wish I had some powder instead of liquid but I can't think what those were right now.

I thought about mixing my own liquid with the powder but I tried that one time with stevia and I had the same problem that LowCarbMan had when he did it and that was these weird moldy type floaty things appeared in it unless it was kept refrigerated. I ordered some grapefruit seed extract, which is a preservative, but they still formed. I have one bottle still in the fridge and it still looks good and I still use it if I need liquid stevia but the one I had in my desk drawer at work looked like a science experiment. Maybe that isn't a problem with sucralose, I don't know.

I ordered the 4oz container and with 1/10 tsp equals one cup I think it will last quite a while.



Thanks for the well-wishes for my Dad, he is doing a lot better after they were finally able to draw off over 2 liters of fluid from around his heart and may possibly get to go home today. I am a lucky girl to still have both my parents who are both 84 and even though they are deteriorating physically both are still mentally sharp.
Is this for the 4 oz sucralose powder that 1/10 t would equal 1 cup sweetness??

I am reading this whole thread trying to get ALL the good ideas...have NOT found any bad ones yet...you girls are something special in the kitchen science lab...I can just barely boil water

I just put in an order for erythitol, tagatose, stevia, powdered-e and Nectresse. I like the Nectresse and am going to attempt to combine E with tagatose and stevia and a touch of molasses to try to mimic the Nectresse. I don't really do much, if any, LC baking but the original recipe here has got me experimenting again. And those Valentines donuts!! Yeah, the powdered E is for that recipe!!!!

I am a little fearful of the tagatose. I understand some have gi issues with it so it will only comprise 1/3 of my blend to hopefully decrease any problems.

I use pea protein rather than whey in my mix. I thin pea protein makes it moister.

I ordered a Babycakes Cake Pop maker just to make the donut holes. OMG, totally worth it! I used buttermilk in them, as Gina suggested, and they had this lovely little tartness to them. I added a titch of Sweet Dough Buttery Bakery Emulsion (bought from KAF on Birgit Kerr's recommendation) and it brought the donut holes into the realm of the divine. I love cake donuts and no one, I repeat, no one could have convinced me that these were not the high carb ones! Going out to buy a donut pan this weekend!

Here is the recipe. These cookies are just slightly cakey.The mouthfeel is amazing. They just love them. I love them. I didn't use egg white powder because I thought that is what was giving me cakey cookies.


Chocolate chip cookies

1 c. mix ( no egg white powder & no sweetner)
3/4 c. blanched almond flour
1/4 c. corn resistant starch
2 eggs
1/2 c. powdered Xylitol
1/2 c. brown diabeta sweet
1/4 tsp. liquid sucralose
1 c. butter
1 c. chocolate chips
almond milk


Cream together butter & sweetners light and fluffy, add eggs, cream well.
Put dry ingredients in bowl and whisk to make airy. Combine the dry ingredient ( a third at a time) to the wet ingredients. Add enough almond milk to get a cookie dough. Add chocolate chips. Bake @ 350 for 12 mins.

These cookies are to die for.

WOE: Thinking of trying NK
I've been out of town and haven't had a chance to do any experimenting with this wondrous mix - but I did prepare a huge bag of it to take on my trip, and made myself a little cake with it almost every day. I stuck to simple, 1/4 cup mix to 1/4 cup DaVinci and a splash of almond milk. The cake turned out beautifully every time, even though I used different microwaves. I hope your manufacturer can help you bring this to market Ouiz!

Esther - I just looked at those cookies again - is the first pic chocolate chip cookies or peanut butter? - they look like peanut butter cookies to me. If not, I think your recipe could be adapted to them, I may give that a try also.

And one last question, how many cookies did you get from your recipe? TIA

All of the pics are the same cookie, chocolate chip. Yes I do think you can make this into peanutbutter cookies.

I love peanutbutter chocolate chip coookies.Yum!!!!

I'd like to see if Calleico can make some with tagatose.
Are we all using the same protein powder?

Oh my goodness, no kidding. I've been away for a couple of days and I think it grew at least 4 pages. Was going to try to do a consolidation but not sure I can keep up, lol. Wow, it's moving fast!

As a person who spends a LOT of time looking for bargains: if you are looking for a Cake Pop maker, head over to Big Lots. I've seen 'em by the dozen. (I know you have already ordered one, but for someone who hasn't yet....)

That is the one I ordered. I've used the liquid sucralose from those same sellers for quite awhile and really like it and never have had any problems with them. They use to have a make offer button on a lot of thier auctions and they never turned down any offer I made but I don't see that option now.

I did bid on one of their listings the other day for a 8oz bottle of liquid sucralose and was outbid but they sent me a second chance offer for my original bid amount which I took.
