Get Cooking!

I have started on the Atkins journey again and this time I am doing it well, 80% properly anyway. I have been making a few recipe of the site, such as Chicken Curry. However I have become bored of having Ryvita as my bread, so with the power of the internet I discovered the 24/7 low carb diner blogspot and in particular this recipe http://247lowcarbdiner.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/mr-peanut-sandwich-bread.html I decided not to make the bread as I don’t have bread tins so thought I would use muffin tins. The 1st batch came out awful too much vinegar and very flat pic 2. I decided to tweak the recipe using the same ingredients I did for a pancake. I used about one teaspoon of peanut butter to one egg and 1/3 of a teaspoon of baking powder. I left the vinegar out and added honey, cinnamon and vanilla extract. I have to say I prefer the use of peanut butter over ground almonds and this will become a breakfast favourite and staple in the battle of the bulge. Pic 1 is the winning result! Im actual enjoying doing the Atkins now.
