I was pouring over things I've made in the past when I realized I couldn't submit my killer strawberry-rhubarb crisp because the oatmeal topping is key, and even my apple crisp uses oats.
Alas, as I was sipping my tea and wishing it wasn't after my carb cutoff time so I could have a biscotti I realize, that's it! I'll post my favourite biscotti recipe, so here it goes. There are MANY variations that you can do, I'll try and post them all.
Twice-Baked Almond Biscotti
2 c. Flour
1 c. Supercarb
2 Tsp Baking powder
1/8 tsp Salt
1 Tsp Ground Cardamom (Optional)
3 Large Eggs
2 Tbsp Amaretto (Or use almond extract)
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Anise Extract (Optional, I rarely do)
1 c. Whole Almond, Toasted then rough chopped
1. Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Mix the wet ingredients and together thouroughly.
3. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until combined.
4. Form the sticky dough into 1 or 2 logs on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Made logs about 10" long by 5" wide, or smaller to make 2 logs.
5. Bake until firm and dry, about 35 minutes at 300.
6. Remove and cool for 5 minutes.
7. Cut logs into 0.5" thick biscotti, then lay on their side on the sheet.
8. Bake for another 15 minutes, flip and then another 10 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Cool on a baking rack. Enjoy!
The flour can be any type. If using white flour, you only need 1 tsp. of baking powder like the original recipe called for, but I usually make it with 1/3 Spelt, Whole Wheat and Amaranth and these are denser and require more leavener. I always make two batches, one with white flour and the other healthy batch. Why? Because the white flour always tastes better! It just tastes like what a biscotti should, meanwhile the other forms I know are healthier but are denser and are never quite as good. Therefore have the white flour PWO as a treat if you must and the other ones throughout the day. Also, these are biscotti i.e. DIP THEM INTO SOMETHING HOT! Don't be like the people I give it to and try and eat them like a cookie, they're meant to be rock hard and perfectly tender when dipped!
Also the 3 eggs can easily be done using egg whites. Almonds are a must, you don't need to rough chop them that thoroughly if you like big almonds. Also doing half almonds and half pecans or hazelnuts works as well. I'll upload pics of some of these bad boys in a bit. This recipe makes about ~30 biscotti the way I cut them.
Here are pics of the biscotti, and also of the nutritional info (1st is using Splenda, 2nd is Supercarb. I calculated using 3 large eggs, egg whites will have less fat/more protein)

Tattoo's Energy/Endurance Soda Replacement
30g Xtend (I usually use orange flavor)
10g Beta Alanine
Mix this up and refrigerate. Tastes like orange soda without the carbonation. Each oz of liquid contains 1g BCAAs, 1g carbs, .33g BA. Its refreshing, and good for you.

I forgot to post my recipe. I made chocolate chip cookies. If its too late, no worries, but here it is anyways.
Start by making fudge:
2 c. supercarb
6 T. Cocoa powder
2 T butter
2/3 c milk
Pinch of salt
1 t. vanilla
Combine sugar, milk, butter, salt and cocoa powder. Bring mixture to boil, not stirring. Boil to soft ball stage (234-238°F). Add vanilla and cool without stirring to room temp. Beat mixture til creamy and thickening. Pour into well buttered pan. Cut in squares.
If you want nutty fudge, add 1/2 c chopped nut when you add the vanilla.
I used organic cocoa powder found here:

Once that has cooled, I broke half of it up into small crumbles and used them as the chocolate chips in my cookies.
* 1 cup butter
* 1.5c supercarb
* 2 eggs
* 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 cups milk chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, supercarb, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
I just adapted recipes I found. I have pictures of the cooking, but I'm at work right now...

I'm Johnyq's wife. I made a simple chocolate milk drink using the same cocoa powder above.
1 c. low carb milk
1 Tbsp supercarb
1 1Tbsp cocoa powder
comes out like a chocolate malt drink. Pretty tasty!
