Modified soul bread

Amazingly like real bread and worth the effort!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pizza/ Bars

Remember that much of the carb count is erythritol (144 grams of total carbs per recipe, so 6 grams per square (12 per wedge).
So, these may NOT affect blood sugar like other carbs (e.g., cane sugar) will.

Sausage Fritatta

Sausage Frittatta

Crazy Busy Waffles

Half of one very delicious waffle -- two sections -- is one serving. According to Crazy Busy Keto Cookbook, that amount would contain roughly 4 carbs, plus about 11 grams of sugar alcohol.
Apparently, Spark People will NOT calculate it that way, and puts the sugar alcohols into the TOTAL CARBS. Just know that. And watch your blood sugar accordingly.

Adapted from Paleo bread from, this cocoa version makes some changes that Paleo purists won't appreciate: adding Nutrilite protein powder & Ghiradelli cocoa powder, and reduces eggs from five to two plus all-whites, changing honey to stevia. So, contains some 'processed' ingredients that I find very acceptable for my eating plan.
