    Thanks, Arlene.
    Well, they work out OK for me - you'll see that I quote the cals/carbs per serving at the bottom of each recipe.
    I have put a recipe on the forum for scones, which does have slightly higher carbs as they contain a small amount of regular flour, but on those occasions when only a scone will do, they don't seem to spike my BGs. (Of course, you do need a good dollop of clotted cream on them! ;))
