Recreating Sweet Treats
From the beginning I knew that there would be some challenges ahead maintaining a low carb, gluten-free lifestyle. Especially since I have a large sweet tooth that I would need to face and come to terms with. In order to do this I became involved in making informed food choices because I wanted to remain committed. All that was left to do was to grab this bull by the horns and do what ever it took to set myself up for success. So began my earnest quest to find great tasting alternatives that would make me feel like I was not missing out or depriving myself of anything sweet and not so sweet. Each recipe was reinterpreted and then perfected to increase each recipes unique flavor profile and texture. These recipe re-creations resulted in this recipe collection.
The First Recipe
This was one of the first recipes I took out for a test drive. It is one of the many delicious ways I keep my sweet tooth happy and in sugar-free remission. It’s because of these recreated and delicious treats that today I’m enjoying a much healthier and happier lifestyle. One that still does not include gluten, refined sugar or any type of processed carbs and I’ve never felt better both physically and mentally. Talk about having your cake and eating it too.
If you decide to try these I think you will agree that these really are tasty, little, low carb nuggets of gluten-free and low glycemic treasures. that are bound to satisfy the most discerning sweet tooth. The texture of this macaroon is more akin to a cookie than a traditional macaroon. This in no way detracts from the fact that they will satisfy your craving for something sweet. If you’re a fan of coconut, you are going to cherish every single bite of their delicious goodness. For me what makes them even better is that they are very quick and easy to make. I hope you enjoy these little nuggets as much as I did recreating them. From my kitchen to yours, enjoy!
