Low Carb-in’ It Up

If you know me in the slightest, I am a magnet for sickness. Not that I’m always sick, but when I’m sick, I’m reaaaal sick forever. So of course, since colds and the flu and upper respiratory illnesses are going around in my area, I’m basically dying over here. Being sick, I have no energy to work out, nor can my extremely sore throat handle that pressure. While I’m waiting to go to the doctor and, hopefully, have her fix me up, I’ve been looking to incorporate some low-carb meals into my diet.

Here are a few I’ve found in my searching that look delish.

flourless chocolate cupcakes

DSC_0065so, were going lowercase today. half my keyboard seems to not be working, including the y key, which i have copied and pasted, and all my side keys like tab, shift, etc.

awesome.

for easter, i made some flourless chocolate cupcakes, since two of the family members are on the whole low carb nonsense.

i found this recipe at seedthetable and didn’t change a thing. half because it was already amazing and half because i’ve never done the whole ‘flourless’ thing, so i was taking strict orders.

the recipe is as follows…

1 1/2 cups (10 1/2 oz) bittersweet chocolate chips- i used the ghirardelli bag, which was 10 oz.
2 sticks butter
4 eggs
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract

melt down the chocolate and butter in a double boiler or the microwave if you’re in the mood for working hard. let cool.

in a separate bowl, cream the sugar and eggs until thick. stir in melted chocolate mixture, powder and vanilla.

after pouring into cupcake tins, bake at 375 for 20 minutes, if you’re looking for a fudgy-er consistency, take out earlier.

chocolate frosting recipe can be found here.

enjoy, and come fix my keyboard!
