M-J’s low-carb cinnamon toast consists of Wasa 7-grain Crisp & Light bread spread with M-J’s original cinnamon butter. RECIPE: Simply mix cinnamon with softened butter and stevia powder (you may prefer to use Splenda), using your own judgment for the proportions of each ingredient. Wasa Crispbread is very low in carbohydrates, and contains a good amount of fibre; cinnamon is known to lower blood-sugar levels.

M-J’s Low-Carb Faerie Cakes

M-J's Original Almond-Lemon Flavoured Faerie Cakes, an Elegant Low-Carb Dessert or Tea Offering

M-J’s Low-Carb Faerie Cakes

3 egg whites, beaten until stiff
1/2 cup of ground plain almonds
Two tablespoons of white flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
One teaspoon of lemon juice
One half-teaspoon of very fine lemon zest (optional)
1/2 cup of cream
1/2cup of plain or vanilla  almond milk, unsweetened
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla
6 tablespoons of sucralose or Splenda

Combine all ingredients except the egg-whites in a mixing bowl and beat together until relatively smooth (almonds will be visible in tiny particles). Fold in beaten egg-whites. Ladle this batter into mini-muffin cups that have been greased with butter. Bake until golden brown in a medium-hot oven, 180°C, (350°F), gas-mark 4 for approximately fifteen minutes. Frosting is optional: I use cream cheese sweetened with vanilla and Splenda.
