Polydextrose Recipes

Since the polydextrose recipe collection is growing daily and everything is spread so far and wide, I've decided, for the sake of convenience, to compile everything here. Feel free to add future recipes to this thread.

If possible, let's try to post only recipes and corrections to this thread. Discussion of recipes/general polydextrose questions should be posted here.

PolyD Brownies (Jaideyes)

These brownies are fudgy, chewy, rich, super-chocolatey, and perfectly sweetened (no wierd splenda-chocolate effect or aftertaste). I only wish I had more toasted pecans to chop up and sprinkle on top, I ran out! They puffed up a bit while baking, and I feared they would be <EEK!> *cakey* but when cooled, (I hurried things along with an hour in the refrig) they settled down to the dense, sticky, carmelized REAL BROWNIE texture we all know and love. Yahooooo! Can ya tell I'm a fanatic? lol

The PolyD Brownie Experiment

4 oz unsweetened chocolate
2 sticks butter
1.5 c polydextrose
1/4 c erythritol
10 drops trishZ liquid splenda (adjust to taste)
4 pkts Stevia Plus
1 t vanilla extract
3 eggs
1/2 c Carbquik
1/2 chopped nuts
1/2 c SF Choc Chips

Preheat oven to 350. Line 9 X 13 w/foil, spray with PAM
Melt choc and butter in large glass bowl in microwave.
Stir in sweeteners well
Fold in eggs, CQ, and nuts.
Bake 20 mins
Remove from oven sprinkle with Choc Chips and spread around as they melt (if desired)

Gingersnaps (Criosa)

1 cup polydextrose (dissolve in the heated water, cool)
6 tablespoons water, heated
3/4 cup sweetener (1/2 Splenda-2 T. Erythritol-2 T. Diabetisweet)
1 tablespoon molasses
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups plus 2 T. almond flour (2 1/2 c. total flour)
3/4 cup Wheat Protein Isolate
2 tablespoons resistant starch (or extra almond flour)
1 1/2 teaspoons egg white powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1. Dissolve the polydextrose in the hot water, set aside to cool.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. Cream together the sweeteners, molasses, coconut oil, and vanilla in a large bowl, as best as you can.
4. In another large bowl combine the flours, baking soda, ginger, salt, cinnamon, and cloves.
5. Pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and beat while adding the polydextrose/water. Continue to mix until ingredients are incorporated.
6. Measure a heaping teaspoon of dough at time. Roll the dough into a little ball between the palms of your hands. Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon dipped in splenda/ery/diabeti sweet mixture.
7. Bake cookies for 10-14 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on a rack. They will be crispy when cool.

Allow plenty of room between cookies, as they will spread out. But this is what will make them nice and crunchy. Makes about 100 cookies.

Here's my chocolate chip cookie recipe:

Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Makes 50 cookies)

3C Carbquik
1tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1C polydextrose
1C (2 sticks, ½ pound) butter, softened
½C erythritol
½C Vanilla Designer Whey Powder
1TB vegetable glycerine
1TB molasses
½tsp. liquid Splenda
1tsp. vanilla extract
2C (12-ounce package) MiniCarb Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

-Combine Carbquik and baking soda in small bowl, set aside.
-Beat eggs and polydextrose until smooth with no large lumps. Next add butter, beating well. Add sweeteners, molasses, and vanilla until creamed.
-Gradually beat in Carbquik mixture. Stir in morsels.
-Drop by heaping tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets covered with parchment/baking paper.
-Bake in preheated 375° oven for 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 3-5 minutes; remove to wire racks or newspaper to cool completely.

Nutrition info for entire recipe:
Calories: 4231
Fat: 339
Carbs: 463 Fiber: 378 (net carbs: 85)
Protein: 137

Per cookie:
Cal: 86
Fat: 7
Net Carb: 1.4
Prot: 2.5

Although I will be adjusting it to substitute almond flour for one cup of the Carbquick and subtracting a bit of butter--this will hopefully help with the fiber-induced gassy/intestinal issues a bit. I will be doing the same with my brownie recipe, as well.

Ice Cream (CandidCam and bassetmom)

Frozen Custard Base:

3C. heavy/whipping cream
1C. whole milk (I use the Hood's milk)
.5C. Erythritol
.25C. Polydextrose
.5 tsp. liquid Splenda
.5 tsp liquid lecithin
.5 tsp glycerin
.5 tsp guar gum
4 egg yolks, beaten

Heat everything but the eggs in a double boiler until hot--but NOT boiling. Slowly whisk in the eggs and continue whisking until the mixture thickens a bit...enough to coat the back of a metal spoon (5 minutes or so). Be sure to not let the mixture boil, or it will curdle.

Chill in a sealed container. Makes 2 medium-sized batches of ice cream in a 1qt. ice cream maker.

Peanut Butter Custard (CandidCam)

Base from above combined with:

To make my peanut butter custard I simply added a half-cup of natural PB. The PB was unsalted, and tastes a bit better with a little salt added...maybe a 1/8-1/4 tsp. per ice cream machine batch of custard. We also added MiniCarb chocolate chips, but I think we will chop up the SF Reeses mini cups next time. That wouldn't add too much maltitol to the recipe.

The PB custard tastes almost exactly like Ben & Jerry's PB cup ice cream...maybe even a bit better!

1/4cup Erythritol
1 egg
1 tsp. blackstrap molasses
1 cup Carbquik
1/2 cup almond flour

I got 40 cookies from the batch. I don't know the exact carb count, just that they taste just like regular cookies!

Chocolate Mousse (BettyR)

Step #1
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup strong brewed coffee (you could sub instant)
1/4 cup water
1 cup PolyD
2-1/2 teaspoons Trish's liquid Splenda
2 teaspoons SteviaPlus
1/4 cup Erythritol
4 ounces Hershey's unsweetened baking chocolate

In a medium saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil, whisking constantly. Continue whisking and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stirring occasionally, cool mixture enough that it won't scramble your eggs.

Step #2
3eggs

Place 3 eggs in a blender and turn blender on. While blender is running pour chocolate mixture into blender and blend well. Pour into a medium size bowl; cover with plastic wrap and chill.

Step #3
2 cups heavy cream

Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Stir 1/4 of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture to lighten it. Then fold the lightened chocolate mixture into the remainder of the whipped cream. Place in a covered container or individual dessert dishes. Cover and chill overnight before serving.

O'solo Roll Clone (NulloModo)

6 T WPI
5 T Flax Seeds, measured whole, then ground
3 T Oat Fiber
1.5 T PolyD
1 T Oil
1/4 t Salt
1.5 t yeast
1 full packet sugar
1 t Baking Powder
3/4 Cup warm water


Method:

Take 1/2 cup very warm water (105 degrees or so) and blend in the yeast and the sugar packet. Whisk this vigorously and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes so the yeast can wake up and eat the sugar, and multiply.

Add everything but the baking powder, stir till mixed, and toss into your food processor on dough mode, or a stand mixer with a dough hook. Let the machine knead the dough for 2 minutes (on the food processor) or possibly longer if using a stand mixer, add the baking powder, and then continue kneading 3 minutes more until all the gluten activates and makes it look like real bread dough.

Shape into four individual sized rolls, making sure they are nice and smooth on the outside. Let these proof somewhere warm for about 1 hour (until doubled), meanwhile preheat an oven to 375 degrees.

When the oven is hot, toss them in and let them bake until golden brown and done, around 15 minutes, maybe a little more or less depending on your oven/altitude.

These rolls have a great taste, a great texture, and hold up well for several days or more without becoming dry (just like the real O'So'Lo rolls). The net carbs per roll are around 3.5 grams.

Just a note on candidcam's custard base, I used scott's idea of 1 cup polydextrose, a little less liquid splenda, and 1/2 t. glycerine and 1/2 t. lecithin. Cooked to temp. of about 170 degrees-all the lumps of poly dissolved.

D'oh! I'm sorry I missed that bassetmom. I added the glycerin/lecithin, but forget to adjust the polyd. Thanks for catching that!

That's weird...I just noticed that my recipe posted above only lists .5tsp glycerine, but I use a full TB...BIG difference in amount (six-fold). Not sure if it would make much difference, though.

Corn Bread

Here's my corn bread recipe:

2 cups Carb quik
6 tablespoons corn bran
1 tablespoon polydextrose
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon liquid splenda
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup carb countdown milk
1/2 cup butter, melted

1. Mix all ingredients.

2. Bake 400 degree for 20 minutes in un-greased 8X8 pan.

Per Serving: 205 Calories; 18g Fat (67.6% calories from fat); 6g Protein; 13g Carbohydrate; 11g Dietary Fiber; 83mg Cholesterol; 249mg Sodium. Exchanges: 0 Grain(Starch); 0 Lean Meat; 3 Fat.

This was figured with 1 oz Carbquik having 2 net carbs.

I substituted the corn bran for the corn meal and added the polydextrose so that it wouldn't be too dry.

CandidCam, sorry, that was my error... the recipe should read like this:

Ice Cream (Bassetmom - from a CandidCam recipe)

Frozen Custard Base:

3C. heavy/whipping cream
1C. whole milk (I use the Hood's milk)
.5C. Erythritol
1 C. Polydextrose
.5 tsp. liquid Splenda
.5 tsp liquid lecithin
.5 tsp glycerin
.5 tsp guar gum
4 egg yolks, beaten

Heat everything but the eggs in a double boiler until hot--but NOT boiling. Slowly whisk in the eggs and continue whisking until the mixture thickens a bit...enough to coat the back of a metal spoon (5 minutes or so). Be sure to not let the mixture boil, or it will curdle.

Chill in a sealed container. Makes 2 medium-sized batches of ice cream in a 1qt. ice cream maker.

Chocolate Drop Cookies with Mocha Glaze
This is another of my Grandma's cookie recipes that I have adapted to LC. However, since I didn't want 3 dozen cookies hanging around, I froze some unglazed. I discovered they make a great cookie for an ice cream sandwich! I freeze the cookies first, then put 1/4 cup LC ice cream, (such as Edy's LC chocolate chip), between 2 cookies, wrap in foil, and pop back in the freezer.

Chocolate Drop Cookies with Mocha Glaze
Preheat oven to 350

Cream in a mixing bowl:
1/2 cup transfat free Crisco
1 tsp. blackstrap molasses
1/4 cup Erythritol
1 tsp. Stevia Plus
3/4 tsp. TrishZ's liquid Splenda

Add:
1 beaten egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted

Sift together:
3/4 cup Carbquik
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup Chef's Blend flour, (or additional Carbquik/almond flour)
2 Tab. dry cocoa
3/4 cup Polydextrose
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

Add dry ingredients, alternating with 1/2 cup sour milk. (I put 1 tsp. vinegar in a 1/2 cup measure, and fill the rest of the way with Carb Countdown.

Drop by rounded tsp. onto greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. While warm, frost with mocha glaze.

Glaze: (can be cut in half, if you are going to use some cookies for ice cream sandwiches) I'm guessing a bit on quantities, as I tasted and adjusted as I went.
3 Tab. very strong hot coffee (can use instant)
3 Tab. cocoa
1/2 cup polydextrose
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup Erythritol
1 tsp. Stevia plus
3/4 tsp. TrishZ's liquid Splenda
3 Tab. butter
Mix together coffee, cocoa, and polydextrose. If sticky lumps form, microwave for 30 sec. and stir. They should dissolve. If not, repeat. Add vanilla and sweeteners. Cool slightly. Stir in butter till smooth. Frost cookies while still warm.

Hot Fudge Chocolate Sauce

This was so good! I usually have trouble with chocolate sauces when I add the chocolate with any kind of water, but this worked very well - smooth and silky, great taste.

1 tablespoon polydextrose
1 tablespoon chocolate davinci
1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
Sweetener to taste
very small pinch of salt
1-2 tablespoon heavy cream
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Mix the polydextrose and DaVinci together and nuke until well dissolved. Stir in chopped chocolate, and coconut oil. Add sweetener (I used a little liquid splenda, a pinch of diabetisweet and pinch of stevia/ery mix), and salt. Stir in cream, and vanilla. This makes enough for 1 or 2 people.

1C almond meal/flour
1C polydextrose
3 scoops (approx. 3/4C) Vanilla Designer Whey Powder
½C erythritol
1½tsp. baking soda
¼tsp. salt (use no salt if peanut butter is salted)
3 eggs

Chocolate Mousse (BettyR)

Step #1
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup strong brewed coffee (you could sub instant)
1/4 cup water
1 cup PolyD
2-1/2 teaspoons Trish's liquid Splenda
2 teaspoons SteviaPlus
1/4 cup Erythritol
4 ounces Hershey's unsweetened baking chocolate

In a medium saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil, whisking constantly. Continue whisking and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stirring occasionally, cool mixture enough that it won't scramble your eggs.

Step #2
3eggs

Place 3 eggs in a blender and turn blender on. While blender is running pour chocolate mixture into blender and blend well. Pour into a medium size bowl; cover with plastic wrap and chill.

Step #3
2 cups heavy cream

Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Stir 1/4 of the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture to lighten it. Then fold the lightened chocolate mixture into the remainder of the whipped cream. Place in a covered container or individual dessert dishes. Cover and chill overnight before serving.

Betty,
Everyone here thinks I'm wonderful because of you! I made this for the family and they loved it. The only thing I did different is use Kahlua DaVinci for the water and coffee, and cut down on the sweetener. Thanks for the recipe.

I made jaideyes brownies and it is the BEST! I was holding my breath that the dreaded clumps would not happen and it didn't.

After reading the threads about Polydextrose, I mixed the carbquik with the poly and the other sweetners. I did sub 5T of the z trim for part of the butter but I do that in every recipe with a lot of fat in it. I followed her recipe and put the butter and chocolate in the microwave first, melted it and then added the 5T of z trim. The rest of the mixing was done with my kitchen aid mixer. I just added the ingredients s l o w l y.

Carbquik, Polydextrose and Z Trim ..............
