Easy Low-Net Carb Cornbread
This easy, 4 net-carb, high-fiber cornbread is simply delicious!
Cornbread. Yummy, tasty, and full of carbs and fat! With a simple change of ingredients, we took this staple and gave it a make-over without losing amazing flavor!
With a few simple substitutions, we are ready to say hello to our Easy Low-Net Carb Cornbread.
Swap #1: Carbquik
Carbquik is a staple in the Skinny Louisiana kitchen and works perfect in low-carb, diabetic- cooking since it is a high-fiber flour, yielding lower-net carbs than traditional all-purpose flour. Carbquik can be found at any Drug Emporium/Vitamin Plus stores. No Drug Emporium in your area? No problem, you can purchase Carbquik through Amazon by clicking here – https://amzn.to/2OcU7xU.
Carbquik can transform all your personal favorite recipes to low-net carb, high-fiber with a simple 1 to 1 ratio of flour to Carbquik. For example, if a recipe calls for 1 cup of flour, use 1 cup of Carbquik in its place.
Swap # 2: Fairlife Milk
Fairlife milk is ultra-filtrated making this a lactose-free, lower-carb (only 6 grams per serving), higher-protein milk. Fairlife can be used in any of your recipes calling for milk.
Swap #3: Swerve
For substituting sugar, I love using Swerve. Swerve is a New Orleans based product and sugar replacer that is non-GMO, zero-calorie, and non-glycemic. Its made from various fruits and root vegetables and measures just like sugar. With that said, per cup of sugar in your recipe, use 1 cup of Swerve. Serve is available at Drug Emporium/Vitamin Plus stores. If not available at your local store, you can purchase Swerve through Amazon by clicking here – https://amzn.to/2mHKScr.
