Biscotti Low Carb & Gluten Free

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 large egg
  • Swerve – ⅓ cup
  • stevia extract – ¼ tsp
  • butter – ¼ cup
  • vanilla extract, sugar free – ½ tsp
  • almond flour – 1 and ¾ cups
  • xanthan gum – ¼ tsp
  • unsweetened cocoa – ½ cup
  • baking soda – ½ tsp
  • salt – ¼ tsp
  • cinnamon – 1 tsp
  • Optional items include chopped nuts and sugar free chocolate chips

Instructions:

First we should preheat our oven to 325 F. Then in a bowl, stir or blend together the eggs, butter, vanilla extract, swerve and stevia. In another bowl stir together the remaining ingredients until they are mixed nicely. Then combine the ingredients of both bowls and you can add the sugar free chocolate chips and the nuts if you would like to.

Mold this into a nice big dough ball. Next grease a cookie sheet and spread the dough out and form your typical biscotti. Next we bake this for about 25 minutes, just until it’s slightly browned. Take it out of the oven and decrease the temperature to 275 F. Allow the biscotti to cool down for about 14 minutes and cut it into strips that are approximately one half inch wide. Then put the individual biscotti on their side onto the cookie sheet and bake them for another 25 – 30 minutes, or for as long as to takes for them to cook to a nice crispness.

This recipes makes about 15 biscotti and each has approx 2 grams of carbohydrates.

Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Low Carb

  • Ingredients:
  • Low carbohydrate chocolate cookies – one pound (the above cookie recipe is perfect for this)
  • butter – ½ cup
  • cream cheese – 8 ounces
  • Swerve – ⅔ cup
  • stevia extract – ½ tsp
  • heavy cream – 1 cup
  • eggs – 6 large
  • coconut flour – 2 tbsps
  • vanilla extract – sugar free – 2 tbsps

This is a really fantastic recipe. To start just take a 9 inch spring form pan and grease it. Then preheat your oven to 350°F. Next break up your cookies into very tiny crumbs. You can use your hands or just use your food processor to do this. Divide your cookie crumbs into two separate bowls and stir one half into your melted butter. You are going to take this butter and cookie crumb mixture and line the bottom of your springform pan with it.  

After doing this place the pan in your refrigerator. Next you want to blend together your swerve, whipping cream and cream cheese. Make sure that you use a large bowl for this.  When it’s nice and smooth you can add the vanilla, coconut flour and eggs and stir everything until it’s creamy smooth. Then take your springform pan out of the refrigerator and pour half of your cream cheese mixture over top of the crust. Then take the other half of your cookie crumbs and pour that over top and then just pour the rest of the creamy mixture over top of that. Next place this in the oven and let it bake for about an hour or so. You want to bake it for as long as it takes for the center to become very firm.

Finally take the cheesecake out of the oven and let it cool down. Personally I like to let it cool down for at least one hour and then you can remove it from the pan. For the best tasting cheesecake I like to leave it in the refrigerator until the next day. This is one of those recipes where there cake will actually taste better the next day.  This recipe makes 12 servings each of them having about 3 – 4 grams of carbohydrates.

Here are 2 more great recipes under 200 calories to help you lose weight.

 

 

Low-Carb Pancakes and Syrup*

This is another one of my favorite recipes. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare everything and then of course you have to add the cooking time for cooking each of the pancakes. This recipe makes 12 pancakes and one serving size is considered three pancakes. Try to make the pancakes the size of about 5 inches.

  • Ingredients:
  • 3 large eggs – separate the yellow from the white
  • protein powder – 2 tablespoons of either egg white protein or any other type of protein powder that you like. Just make sure that it does not contain a lot of sugar and carbohydrates. That’s why I prefer egg white protein because it’s very low in carbs and in sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract – you could really use any flavor that you prefer
  • Stevia or swerve – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil or organic respite voter – we use this to coat our pan
  • 1/2 cup of our delicious brown butter syrup – for pouring over top of our pancakes

We begin by whipping the egg whites in a bowl for several minutes until they become very stiff. After that blend in the yolks, vanilla extract, Stevia and your protein powder.

Heat the coconut oil or the unsalted butter over top a medium – high heat then when it’s hot take 1/4 cup of the batter and pour it into your pan. (When my wife does this the pancakes always seem to be in perfect shape but for some reason when I do it I need to use a utensil to make it into an almost perfect circle.)

Then just fry the pancake until it’s a golden brown on both sides. This usually takes about 2 minutes per side. After that remove the pancake from the heat and set it aside on a plate and cover it to keep it nice and warm. Then just repeat this process until there is no more batter left. I usually need to add a bit more butter or coconut oil between cooking each pancake.

When you have cooked all of the batter just place the pancakes on individual serving plates and pour the syrup over top. Remember a serving size is three pancakes and each serving has approximately 175 cal, 13 g of fat, 8 g of protein, 0.6 g of carbohydrates in 0 g of fiber.

Brown Butter Syrup*

This is the recipe for the syrup to pour over top of your pancakes or anything else that  you would like to use syrup with. It only takes about one minute to mix everything together and then it takes about another five minutes for it to cook. This recipe makes one and a half cups of syrup and usually 2 tablespoons are considered a serving size. Each serving has approximately 75 cal, 8.4 g of fat, 0.2 g of protein 0.2 g of carbohydrates in 0 g of fiber.

  • Ingredients:
  • unsalted butter – 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup of swerve – you can use any others sugar substitute for this recipe, but I prefer to use swerve. It tastes just like real sugar and it doesn’t have that aftertaste that most other products have. Also,  if you consume a large quantity of some of the other sugar substitutes like xylitol   you may experience some stomach upset (and possibly diarrhea).
  • Cream cheese – 1 ounce
  • unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk – 1/2 cup
  • 1 teaspoon of maple extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

First we take a large saucepan and heat the butter over high heat, stirring it every few seconds.  The butter will start to foam up towards the top of the pan and it will then fall back down. You will start to see quite a few brown flecks and that is when you should remove it from the heat.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the swerve until it’s nice and smooth.  At this point you can mix in the cream cheese and stir until it’s smooth and then stir in the almond milk, maple extract and the salt.

Now set the pan aside and let it cool down a bit and then pour the mixture into a glass jar. It can stay fresh in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Now, because of the ingredients, it will become thick while it is in the refrigerator. So when you are ready to use it you can just reheat it in a microwave or by placing it in a pan and heating it over a flame on your stove-top.

Especially now that it’s going to be cold outside there is nothing like a hot taco salad to satisfy the hungriest of appetites and make you feel good all at the same time.

Heat this over medium heat for approximately one minute. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in your rum extract or Kahlúa extract and the salt.

Back to School Weight Loss Recipes by Medical Weight Loss Philadlephia

Well, it’s almost the end of August and most of us are running around crazy. Some of us are trying to squeeze in a few more vacation days. While others are getting their children ready to head back to school. It doesn’t matter if it’s pre-school, elementary school, high school or even college.

They all take weeks of preparation. And even though my wife made 20 different check lists, for our son Noah heading back to Penn State, somehow, she forgot to pack a remote controller for his Xbox, one of his favorite jackets (that was in the trunk of his best friend’s car) and a speaker for his iPhone (that was under his bed). Every other day, Noah sends a text message, “Mom can you please send me my earbuds? Thank you! Love you! You are the BEST!” … And Yes my wife is a Saint.

I am happy to say that my wife is not alone. Because so many of our weight loss patients have told me this week, that life has been so crazy for them. So much so, that they have not been able to follow their weight loss plan totally 100% but they still lost weight or maintained their weight loss. So they were very happy about that.

Renee told me this morning that she has been so busy taking care of everyone else in her family that she hasn’t had any time for herself. But she remembered me saying that little changes add up to big results and that if she isn’t perfect on the program to do the best she could and when things are less hectic to get back to 100%.

Personally, I try to keep to the weight loss program 5-6 days a week and 1 or 2 days a week I may be a bit more relaxed on my diet. I usually cheat a bit on the weekend and on Monday morning I am back 100% on the weight loss plan.

As you may know, I love my starchy carbohydrates and sugary treats and they love me back even more because they like to stay with me as belly fat. But you still can have sugar desserts on our weight loss plan especially if you follow our low sugar and low carb recipes for these Sweet desserts.

So here is a totally delicious low carb treat recipe for everyone that has been so busy taking care of everybody except themselves.

Cinnamon Toast Custard

  • The ingredients are:
  • full fat coconut milk – 2 cans
  • powdered gelatin – 1 tablespoon
  • Stevia – 1 teaspoon
  • ground cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
  • egg yolks – 3 large
  • the beans from a long organic vanilla bean
  • maple extract – 1 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Sea salt – 1/4 teaspoon
  • bacon- cooked and cut into half-inch pieces

Start by pouring 1/4 cup of your coconut milk into a bowl and then take your gelatin and sprinkle over top of the coconut milk and just let this set for a while  so you can prepare the rest of the ingredients. Next in a saucepan whisk the leftover 1.75 cups of coconut milk with your butter, egg yolks, cinnamon and stevia. When everything is mixed nicely place this over medium – low heat for approximately five minutes. Just make sure that it does not overcook because you do not want to scramble the egg yolks.

When everything is nice and warm remove it from the heat and whisk in the gelatin mixture and then mixing your maple extract, salt and vanilla beans. when this is done just pour the custard into 4 serving cups or bowls and place them in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Just make sure that the custard is set firmly.

When you are ready to eat this you can top it with your bacon. Personally I like this when it’s a little bit warmer in temperature especially first thing in the morning.  But when I am really hungry I will just take it right out of the refrigerator, sprinkle some extra cinnamon and even ginger over top and eat it cold.  

When we have company over for night, when everyone is eating ice cream this is what I am usually eating. I do have this sometimes during the day and even at night when I am hungry and need a little something to satisfy my sweet tooth. And it also satisfies my hunger because it’s loaded with good healthy fats that help decrease blood sugar levels and decrease my appetite. One serving has approximately 332 cal, 31 grams of fat, 6.9 grams of protein, 5 grams of carbohydrates and 0 grams of fiber.

I really hope you enjoy this recipe. It’s another one of my favorites.

Low Carb Low Sugar Sweet Treat Recipes by Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia

medical weight loss philadelphiaIf you are one of our weight loss patients you know that we are one of the most affordable Philadelphia medical weight loss centers and that we only use the highest quality weight-loss pills appetite suppressant medications. And that we take great pride in doing our best to help you lose weight and also improve your overall health.  That is why I am constantly updating this website/blog with low-calorie recipes and lots of low sugar or sugar-free desserts.

And nothing makes me happier then when a patient tells me this morning, that in spite of her being diabetic, she has steadily been losing weight on our program; and that a large part of her success has been making these recipes that I post every week. So I thank all of my wonderful patients for inspiring me each and every day to be the best that I could possibly be – so that I can help you be the best that you could possibly be.

Here are 2 more recipes to satisfy the biggest sweet tooth:

Cocoa Gingerbread Cookies*

  • Ingredients:
  • Coconut oil or unsalted butter – 1/2 cup softened
  • 1.5 cups of powdered Stevia or any other sugar substitute
  • eggs – 2 large eggs – beaten
  • cocoa powder, unsweetened – 3/4 cup
  • ground cinnamon – 1 tablespoon
  • ginger powder – 2 teaspoons
  • Himalayan sea salt – 1/4 teaspoon
  • vanilla extract – 2 teaspoons
  • almond extract – 1/2 teaspoon

After you have gathered all of the ingredients preheat your oven to 350°F. Then in a bowl, approximately medium in size, mix the cream, Stevia or other sugar substitute and the butter. You can use a hand-held mixer for this or if you have a stand mixer that’s even better. Also you may want to mix together the cream and the butter first and then add the Stevia. After that and your 2 large eggs and mix until they are combined nicely. Then mix in the cinnamon, salt, ginger powder, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and almond extract.

After everything is mixed and combined nicely you will then take this dough in roller into the shape of balls, approximately 2 inch balls. And then place the balls on two ungreased cookie sheets. Make sure you keep about an inch between each of them. Then just bake this for 10 minutes or for as long as it takes for it to be totally cooked. When it’s done just take it out of the oven and let it cool down on the cookie sheet before removing off of the sheet.

If you like you can eat them immediately after that or you can keep them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for as much as one week. This recipe normally makes approximately 24 cookies and each one has about 51 cal, 4.7 grams of fat, 1.1 grams of protein, 1.2 grams of carbohydrates and .7 grams of fiber.

Keto-Sugar*

Since almost each and every one of us enjoy a little bit of sweetness especially in our drinks I have been doing my best to find a mixture that would be sweet, delicious and not spike our insulin levels when we consume it. And I have finally found the perfect recipe for this.

The ingredients are:

  • granulated erythritol – 2 cups
  • ground cardamom – 2 teaspoons
  • ginger powder – 1 teaspoon
  • ground cinnamon – 2 teaspoons
  • ground cloves – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Two  vanilla beans split and seeds scraped, they should be approximately 6 inches long
  • Himalayan salt – 1/4 teaspoon

Like I said this is a really phenomenal recipe and I like it because it has a little spice of that chai flavor. Once you have all the ingredients just combine the erythritol, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger powder, vanilla beans seeds and salt until everything is mixed nicely together. Just store this in an airtight container and make sure that you keep in a dry and cool place and definitely keep a covered. This should  the good for about three months or so. A serving size is considered 2 tablespoons and this has approximately 3 calories, 0 grams of protein, .5 grams of carbohydrates, and 0 grams of fiber.
