In addition to our new baking mixes, we have an entire universe of tips and tricks to help you have the best numbers conscious holiday baking experience ever.
Here are our favourite hot tips for making numbers conscious holiday baking a success:
1- Use our Carbonaut baking mixes! Find out where to buy here. If you can’t find them where you shop, try using almond flour—it’s low in carbs and high in protein. Or experiment with coconut flour to add a unique texture to your number conscious treats. It’s high in fiber and low in carbs, providing a lighter consistency to your holiday baked goods.
2- Introduce nutrient-dense nut butters, such as almond or peanut butter, into your recipes. Beyond their cosmically scrumptious taste, these nut butters bring a constellation of healthy fats to the table. Almond butter is subtly sweet and nutty, while peanut butter introduces a classic richness. As these wholesome ingredients meld effortlessly into your number conscious treats, they not only enhance flavour but also contribute to a satisfying, nutrient-packed culinary adventure.
3- Try using delicious plant-based alternatives instead of eggs to increase your overall fibre intake, thereby lowering the carb count. You can substitute ¼ cup mashed avocado or pumpkin puree for one egg. You can also use golden flax meal instead of regular flax meal in your egg substitute: it’s less gummy, and the flavour generally makes for a smoother ride.
4- Grease your baking pans with coconut oil or plant-based butter spread. Number conscious batters can stick a little more than conventional batters. A well-greased pan is your new copilot!
5- Elevate your numbers conscious baking by experimenting with flavour enhancers like vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. These additions bring a burst of flavour without contributing to the carb count. From the warmth of cinnamon to the subtle spiciness of ginger, these spices not only enhance taste but also fill your kitchen with enticing aromas, redefining your numbers conscious baking experience.
6- Consider alternative sugar solutions. Swap sugar for stevia or monk fruit. They’ll add sweetness without the spike in blood sugar. Use a spiced glaze instead of traditional icing. Use our new baking mixes to ensure the lowest numbers in the whole galaxy!
7- Explore the world of low glycemic fruit options in your baking with vibrant choices like cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, or strawberries. While these berries add a colourful touch of sweetness, use them in moderation either as a decorative topping or in small quantities within recipes due to their natural fruit sugars. Embrace the versatility of these nutrient-packed gems to elevate your number conscious treats, balance flavour, and create a big number-conscious bang for an out of this world experience.
8- Make it savoury! Elevate your muffins or scones by infusing them with savoury goodness. Instead of the usual sweet add-ins like dried fruit, reroute for flavourful alternatives such as peppers and onions to introduce a delightful twist. As you explore this savory transformation, harness the power of herbs; they don’t just contribute distinctive tastes but also inject a burst of freshness into your baked creations. Take rosemary, for example—the aromatic quality of this herb can intricately weave through your muffins or scones, offering a delightful contrast to the sweetness commonly associated with traditional baking.
