One of our all-time favorite desserts... So perfect with ice cream warm out of the oven. I made some last night for hubby, and ate my choco pudding while he had his apple crisp. A little hard... :-(
Is there *any* way to make this work? Seems to me impossible without going into crossover territory, or just plain cheating if I want a nice crunchy top which is only achieved with a good deal of butter. Even plan approved ice cream and sweeteners still stump me as to what category this would be in.
There is a baked apple recipe in the book which would be similar, but not quite the same, I know. The topping is the hardest. You could try slicing an apple, and making a low fat sauce with water and flavorings like lemon juice, stevia, cinnamon, maple flavoring, or whatever you like, and thickening it with glucomannan. Then you could take just a bit of rolled oats and mix in 1 tsp of melted butter and whatever spices you like, and sprinkling that on top of the apples and sauce. Bake it until it's done, and you could have it with some Tummy Tucking Ice Cream. I would hold off the 1 tsp of added cream in the ice cream though - it works fine with only almond milk. Or you could have it with nonfat Greek yogurt, which is delicious also. This is E, of course. It has a bit more carbs than I think a regular E snack/dessert would have because of the extra oats, but depending on the amount you used it's not too much more. It should be fine I think if you have it say after a Fuel Pull meal, or just make sure it's been about 3 hours since your last meal. It could be your E "meal." Anyway, not exactly a real recipe, but it's an idea.
Emily, I think that's a good idea. Maybe toast the oats on a cookie sheet like making granola to get them REALLY crunchy and top the baked apple AFTER baking, right before serving. If you aren't a purist, maybe you could even toast the oats in the microwave like joseph's pitas?

Found this on plan to eat on a paleo board but edited slightly to make plan approved. Haven't tested it but you could try it! 3 cups apples sliced or chopped 1 Tbs almond meal or other s approved flour or starch stevia of choice 1 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp salt 1 Tbs water 1/2 cup oats 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp coconut oil or other dairy-free oil or shortening Directions | Numbered...
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease a 9x9 casserole dish with oil or shortening.
Combine apples through water in a bowl, and pour into casserole dish.
Combine oats through coconut oil in a small bowl with fingers, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle on top of fruit.
Bake 35 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly.

daisymae27: i made the mayonnaise in the book, and I really don't like the taste. It leaves such a bitter aftertaste. Any suggestions on how to tweak it to taste better? If not, is there any acceptable ready- made brand?

steffanie3: daisymae27, it is probably the olive oil I like it i something strong as is like a curry chicken salad, but for everyday MCT for the olive or part of it appeals more, avocado or a light olive oil too

steffanie3: Green pea flour could be used in an E setting, if you have a specific recipe asking in above forum we could give it a look payeville

steffanie3: crazyabt6, did you use the homemade flour called for in making in the first step?

steffanie3: gram42can, nope Cheerios would be a no go on THM

steffanie3: perla, I don't have those, but if you post ingredients in a post above we could take a look or other mamas might spot it that do have it. The chatbox questions are easy to miss because they can scroll by without mamas seeing them

solagratia: I'm new and not sure how this this works...new to THM too and have a question. Appreciate any help I can get.

solagratia: I've been doing THM about 2 weeks and I'm starting to loose a bit of wieght but my breath has become strange. I can't smell it but my husband says it's a bit metallic and quite strongly ammonia-like in its smell.

solagratia: We're concerned since I am nursing our 11 month old. I've had this happen before when I've tried to loose weight while still nursing. But years ago (before my childbearing and nursing days) I lost weight when needed without this side affect.
Mar 16, 2015 2:22:19 GMT -5
solagratia: My mild supply seems fine, but we are concerned about how this could affect the baby or if something is wrong with me. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks

steffanie3: solagratia, it sounds like you are in ketosis are you mixing up your fuels well? If you would like you can post a few days menus in a thread above and the ladies are great about helping make suggestions

Dutchi: Is there a limit for how much almond milk you can use in a meal...any category? For example...can I use 1.5 cups of almond milk in a smoothie with whey and berries and still have it be a FP? I find the ice waters down the flavour too much for my liking.
Mar 17, 2015 12:36:37 GMT -5
Dutchi: I bought some whey powder at the bulk food store. Most recipes call for 1 scoop. Can you tell what 1 scoop would equal...1 tablespoon...2 tablespoons?
Mar 17, 2015 13:14:00 GMT -5
steffanie3: Dutchi a cup and a half can work specifically in that example, typically it is good to stick to a serving is a good idea
Mar 22, 2015 15:50:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: You might have to check with the store to be sure, a typical scoop is 1/4 to a 1/3 but they can vary a bit. For protein you do want a whey protein isolate, cross-microfiltered preferred.
