    Cheesy Cake Bars / Biscuits : Low Carb High Fat

    Post by Jan1 on Wed Jun 22 2016, 11:28


    This is a recipe idea I saw on Ewelina's blog and thought it a great idea. She calls them Cheese Biscuits but they are quite spongy on the inside - similar to a muffin - so perhaps I'd call them 'Cheesy Cake Bars'. They are quite high in fat so if you eat one or two (maximum) they are very satiating and you will feel full for hours ...
    There is also another benefit, bake a big batch and they can make a super fast breakfast on the go. You grab one from the fridge and enjoy with your morning cup of tea or coffee.


    Ingredients:
    150g/5 ounces ground almond
    100g/3.5 ounces cream cheese
    50g/2ounces cheddar cheese, grated
    50g/2ounces butter, melted
    1 egg
    1 heaped tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp baking soda

    Nutritional values:
    1 Biscuit
    Carbs 1.2g
    Protein 6g
    Fat 18g
    Calories 195

    They taste nice eaten warm or cold


    so please do go over to Ewelina's blog
    and see the cooking instructions
    she'll welcome you with a warm smile ...

    Strange, I thought I'f just replied to this.

    Sometimes when I visit Minsmere I am tempted by their cheese scones. I spread it with lashings of butter and eat it a bit at a time while walking around. That way it minimises the BG spikes but I'm still leery about the wheat.

    These look very tempting as a replacement.

    Yes, this recipe can work well as a replacement for cheese scones ...
    Just make sure you have some lovely butter, and perhaps a cherry tomato too!

    All the best Jan

    Scones can make a nice snack ... especially a Cheese one with lots of butter.
    BUT if you are living the LCHF lifestyle then some recipes can be too carby!

    However, this recipe is just 1.2g carb per cheesy bar/biscuit.

    ... and yes, I've bumped the post up ... will you be making some I wonder Smile

    All the best Jan
