Breakfast Mock Cinnabon (Low Carb)

Total Time

This is one of my favorites on the South Beach diet. I usually eat this for breakfast or for a snack; it really satisfies my "sweet tooth". For those on South Beach, count the pecans as part of your daily nut allowance.


  1. Combine cottage cheese and sugar substitute.
  2. Sprinkle with cinnamon (no limit) and top with pecan halves.

This was great! I added a drop or two of Maple Extract flavor. It was delicious. Thank you.

I'm surprised! A little skeptical but the reviews convinced me to give this a try. I'm glad I did. I'm sure I will make this again. I might use a tad less sweetner next time.

I just made this, as I have been on a low carb diet for 5 weeks. I used fat free ricotta, a stivia packet, and pecan cookie pieces toasted cuz that's what I had on hand. My cinnamon came out to fast, so it was alittle over barring, but all in all not a bad recipe. I may try whole milk riccota and alittle more sweetner next time. It is a nice change from eggs, and I love my eggs, I eat one just about everyday/night to boost my protien levels. I will for sure make this again.
