It's ridiculous that it is so difficult to get to the US site. I spoke with a rep about it over FB messenger last night, because it was very hard to make sure that the site was legit.

If you go to the VF facebook page, scroll down, and you'll see it on the right hand side of the page.

I thought I would be baking like crazy during the holidays, but I baked a dozen cupcakes right after Thanksgiving and nothing since. Maybe that's a good thing I don't know!

I don't know if I could have found that without all your help.
I'm giddy with that price, though - thank you all again!

I know how you feel about the price. I bought another dozen bottles even though I am swimming in the stuff. I will use every last drop.

I bought 5 bottles and some powdered. I still have some from the first bottle I bought. I just couldn't pass up that price. I have no idea what I will make. I'll have to reread the long vita fiber thread.

I felt like I had some symptoms of hoarding when I bought all of those bottles.

My daughter said, "Mom, you're going to use ALL of that!"

Sadly she's probably right. The pecan pie alone ....

I am sorry if I'm not searching properly, but I cannot find Soobee's peanut brittle recipe.
My neighbor has given us some "native" to our state peanuts and I'd love to try a peanut brittle.

Soobee or anybody if you have it, would you mind posting it again?

VitaFiber Microwave Almond Brittle Rossella Body Building Pantry
70 g Vitafiber powder (about 2 1/2 oz)
45 g Vitafiber syrup(about 2 oz)
Your favorite sweetener, to taste (I used 8 drops liquid sucralose, about 1/3 cup sweetener)
90 g almonds (about 3 oz)
1 pinch salt (optional)
1 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
In a glass bowl, combine almonds, Vitafiber powder and syrup, salt. Cook in microwave for 2-3 minutes on High: mixture should be bubbly. Stir in butter and vanilla; cook 1 minutes longer. Quickly stir in baking soda and your favorite sweetener just until mixture is foamy. Pour immediately onto greased baking sheet. Let cool 15 minutes or until set. Break into pieces.

The original recipe said to cook the mixture on high for 4-5 minutes, then stir, and then add in other ingredients. Mine came out black and unsalvageable. So I changed the initial time to 2-3 minutes. It should be bubbling, just like when you make Protein bars. I tried to do it on the stovetop. It formed one big blob, impenetrable inside and highly uncooperative. So I think you have to do it on the microwave. Just don't overcook it. But the toffee was delicious. DH marveled that we could make such a recipe after all these years.
Is this the brittle recipe?

That's the one I still use. It's great on its own and also great crushed and put into ice cream. I'll have to try it with peanuts.

That's the one I use. I tried it with xylitol as the sweetener and it was okay, but when I used erythritol it had the best texture and indistinguishable from brittle made with regular sugar and corn syrup.

Are the amounts given by weight, or by volume?

Almond Chocolate Cookies Vangela Soobee
1¼ cups almond flour
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ cup coconut oil
1/4 cup Vitafiber liquid
½ T vanilla
1/8 tsp sucralose liquid (1/2 cup worth of sweetener)
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup sliced almonds
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Mix almond flour, baking powder and baking soda together. In another bowl, combine oil, agave and vanilla together. Add dry mix to wet mix. Fold in sliced almonds and chocolate chips. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of dough onto baking sheets. Flatten. Bake for 7-8 minutes until golden. Cool in pan.
This is the most delicious cookie recipe. Tastes like the real deal. I usually make with 1/4 cup chopped pecans and 1/4 cup Lily's chocolate chips. I have also added 1/8 cup of unsweetened coconut. Last night I used butter flavored coconut oil. Made it even better.

Has anyone tried to make gummy bears (or any gummy type candy)? I've seen sugar-free candy that uses IMO, and it's created an expensive little habit for myself. I've attempted it but had trouble with the texture. It comes out like a firm jello, where I want something on the firm and chewy side. Once I get the texture down, I'm dying to experiment!! Specifically trying to create a low carb red wine gummy.

Has anyone given this a shot?? Or does anyone wanna take on this experiment with me??

So far I've tried boiling gelatin, swerve, vitafiber and prosecco together, then pouring it into moulds. Not quite right.

Ally you could try adding a little glucomannan, too, since that can easily have the "rubber band" texture.
The best I've made use 1 packet s/f gelatin (flavored), 1T unflavored gelatin, and just 1/4 cup boiling water, pour into molds and let set.
They're pretty chewy!

Maybe I'll try the glucomannan! I've tried the recipe you mentioned, but that's the firm jello texture I'm trying to get away from.
