    • Low Carb Dark Chocolate and Strawberry Friands

      Okay after sampling a non low carb dark chocolate and strawberry muffin at a local farmers market, I decided to make a low carb one. I wanted to try it as a friand this time and next batch I will make a muffin version. The oldies might recall the old low carb strawberry friand recipe: Almond and Strawberry Friands

      Anyway, for this one I used almond flour and little coconut flour, as this was last minute and that was all I had, but instead of the coconut flour which isn't very low carb you could use husks, flax, lupin?
      I used frozen strawberries - after cutting them I popped them back in the freezer until I was ready to mix them into the batter. Oh and I used muffin pans as I had no friand one.

      I am having trouble tasting, but Garry commented that this is the best I have done so far, so I am hoping they're really good :)
