Breakfast Mock Cinnabon (Low Carb)

"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."

    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.

    I really liked this! I didn't have pecans or walnuts so I used a teaspoon of low fat granola. I will make this again.

    Not bad, I've never really had cottage cheese before so this was new to me. I subbed walnuts for pecans (less carbs). I also added 1 tbsp of low-carb apricot preserves to the mix.

    This was pretty good! I don't keep sugar substitute on hand, so I used regular sugar instead (about a teaspoon). I think I will add more next time as it wasn't quite sweet enough for me. I also used almonds instead of pecans as that's what I had in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing!
     

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
