I have just started trying to control my carbs. I would like to know if you could also send the nutritional information on the Cinnamon muffins, brownies, Maple muffins, cookies and quick breads. Do you have recipes listed anyplacec else? I am trying to gather an arsenal of go to recipes. Thanks for all your help.

I changed Barbs's cinnamon muffins just a little. I put in just a little cimmamon and added tsp of cocoa and the added vanilla and then added jus one egg. It is really good for a quick cupcake fix. Thanks Barb

I just tried to make the brownies,,,,,maybe not in the microwave,,,,,and, some more margerine or butter, I doubled the recipe and put some brownie mix in lil muffin tins and cooked other half in microwave. Perhaps I didnt add enough fat! tastes good, just dry! My husband even ate it and he doesnt have Diabetes or eat sugar free, he said they are not bad,hmmmmm... I will try some of the others, the pancakes are AWESOME!!!!! I do love them. I think it will make a nice muffin w/ cin and apples. Still figuring this mix out, but it does taste good. love the low carb yummy taste!
Pray and obey...very hard to do sometimes...but well worth it!

I am so excited to try this. Saturday was always pancake day at my house. The others still have pancake day, but I haven't eaten any since I was diagnosed in June. I am going to wait until this sat. though because a brand new Trader Joes is opening in my town (we haven't had one previously) and I think I would like to steer clear of grinding up almonds on my own. I've never liked syrup, just a little butter, so I'm excited.
