Hopefully this YouTube video link works. I'm on my phone. It's for a blueberry red wine butter sauce to serve with lamb (could use beef instead)


If you have a surplus you can freeze them and use for smoothies or on baked goods.

Nigel 03-30-2013 05:18 PM

Thanks everyone.

I think stuff like muffins or desserts mostly. But I am interested in any recipes.

I made some smoothies with almond milk that turned out good.

I'm just kind of at a loss as what to make, but I know that blueberries are very healthy for us, so I thought I'd see what everyone else likes to make.

Nigel 03-30-2013 05:20 PM

Strawberry, the link works fine for me. Thank you.

Strawberry 03-30-2013 09:41 PM

I dont really bake much. I mostly eat blueberries in smoothies or with yogurt. I also really like the combo of blueberries in a salad with mixed baby greens, feta or goat cheese, pecans and balsamic vinaigrette.

You could add them to whatever is your favorite recipe for low carb pancakes.

Strawberry 03-30-2013 09:51 PM

This recipe from Linda Sues website for pound cake would be great with blueberries added. You could bake it in muffin cups too. I have made this recipe 3 times, albeit a long time ago, and can vouch the it's a good one. It's dense like a sweet corn muffin due to the almond flour. I like it because it uses easily found ingredients . If you don't have almond flour, you can whiz some almonds in your food processor to make it. Use blanched almonds ( peel is off)


POUND CAKE
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
5 eggs
1 teaspoon lemon or orange extract, optional
1-2 teaspoons vanilla
6 1/2 ounces almond flour (1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Lemon or orange zest, optional

Beat the butter, cream cheese and Splenda with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and beat well. The mixture should look like thick cake batter. Pour into a greased 9-inch round cake pan. Bake at 350 50-55 minutes. I suggest checking the cake after 40 minutes or so because mine was done in less than 45 minutes. The cake will be golden brown and firm to the touch when done.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffeecake Carolyn
Blueberry Filling

1 cup frozen blueberries
2 tsp. water
1 tsp. arrowroot starch
Cream Cheese Filling
8 oz. cream cheese
1 large egg
2 tbsp. granulated erythritol
1/8 tsp. stevia extract
Cake
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup granulated erythritol
1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
6 oz. Greek yogurt
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 large eggs
1/8 tsp. stevia extract
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
For the blueberry filling, in a small saucepan over medium heat, bring blueberries to a simmer and cook until they release their juices, about 3 minutes. In a small cup, mix together water and arrowroot starch until well combined. Add starch mixture to blueberries and cook until thickened, about 1 minute. For the cream cheese filling, in a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in egg until well combined, then beat in erythritol and stevia. For the cake, preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9-inch springform pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, granulated erythritol, vanilla protein powder, baking powder, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat yogurt and butter together until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating lightly after each addition, then beat in stevia extract. Beat in almond flour mixture in two additions, alternating with almond milk and scraping down beaters and sides of bowl as needed. Spread batter in well-greased 9-inch springform pan with removable bottom, pushing batter up sides of pan to create center well for filling. Sides should be about 1 inch wide. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly into center well, and then spread blueberry mixture over top of cream cheese. Bake in 350F oven 30 to 35 minutes or until sides are set. Center will still jiggle somewhat. Let cool in pan. Run a sharp knife around cake in pan to loosen, and remove sides. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Coat berries with a light dusting of bake mix (to keep them from sinking), and gently fold 3/4 of them into the batter. Fill muffin cups 3/4 of the way full, and sprinkle remaining berries over the tops. Pinch off bits of the cold topping, dropping them over the tops of the muffins. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Let cool until lukewarm, then turn muffins out of the silicone muffin cups so the tops are facing down.

blueberry beurre rouge, I have not see it. Maybe I will try it.

Nigel 03-31-2013 11:23 AM

These all sound good. Thank you Soobee & Strawberry.

I haven't ever had blueberries in a salad, but I've had strawberries and I eat a lot of salads, so I'll try them that way too.

You made me hungry with all those great recipes. :)

I've copied all these recipes to try out.

Strawberry 03-31-2013 11:31 AM

I intially thought blueberries (or any berries) would be totally weird in a salad! But the sweet and savory combo with cheese and balsamic and nuts is incredibly good!

In my limited world, a salad used to always involve iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, and italian or ranch dressing! I'm so glad I've expanded since low carb!

vanilla_latte 04-02-2013 12:16 PM

I got this nifty little concoction on here, but can't remember who from.

Blueberry Cobbler

Handful frozen blueberries
1/2 c. cottage cheese
1/4 c. quick oats
Sweetener to taste

I also add a little SF Blueberry Syrup to it. I warm up the blueberries, add the other ingredients and nuke it for a minute or so. Sometimes I'll add a little bit of real butter - adds to the "cobbler" taste. Very quick and good!

Nigel 04-02-2013 12:41 PM

Thanks vanilla. I'm all for easy recipes and that sounds good too.

Charski 04-02-2013 12:42 PM

You could use this, substituting 6 cups of blueberries for the zucchini:

Char's Mock Apple Crisp (zucchini!)

1 jumbo zucchini (I used 3 medium ones)
1 cup granular Splenda (or equivalent sweetener of your choice)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon Thicken Thin Not/Starch or other thickener such as guar gum or glucomannan - I'd start with a teaspoon or less of either of those

Topping:

1 cup almond or hazelnut meal
1/3 cup granular Splenda or whatever you like
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup oat bran
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350*. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Peel and trim zucchini - slice lengthwise into quarters. Remove seeds. Slice into slices that resemble apple slices. You should have about 6 cups of slices.

Boil the zucchini slices for 3 minutes. Drain well.

Mix together 1 cup Splenda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and the thickener. Sprinkle over zucchini slices and toss to coat evenly. Place zucchini slices in a greased 8 or 9 inch square baking pan.

Mix together topping ingredients to make a crumb topping. Distribute evenly over zucchini. Bake for 45 minutes, until topping is browned and crispy.

May be served warm, cold, or room temp. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Yummy with some heavy cream, whipped cream, or LC ice cream!

I'm making this with chayote too - I use 3 or 4 chayotes, peeled, seeded, and sliced, depending on how big they are; then I sprinkle a packet of sugarfree apple cider mix (Alpine is good) over the slices and nuke til tender, about 10 minutes; then make the above topping, and bake at 350* for 25 minutes or so.

It's SO MUCH like apple crisp I don't think anybody could honestly tell the difference!

Nigel 04-02-2013 12:45 PM

Thanks Charski, I'm adding that to my collection to try. :)

Charski 04-02-2013 12:51 PM

It should be really easy to throw together, Nigel, since you won't have to do the "boil til tender" part. I might nuke the blueberries for a couple minutes just to soften them so the sugar sub sticks, but it's probably not totally necessary - maybe if you washed them, shook off the excess water, then tossed them with the mixed-together the Splenda and cinnamon, nutmeg, and thickener, spread in baking dish, add topping - just thinking out loud! :)
