    5.7 last night.
    5.9 this morning.

    @Atad heavy the hug is for missing out on the cheese cake.

    But here is your star for being brave about it. and the numbers you got.

    Bye the bye the guy with the deli shop up the road has made a reduced sugar cheese cake to sell as his wife pointed out she could not eat the other ones he makes.

    I used to have a very sweet tooth so it has been hard giving it all up. I am experimenting with Keto cheesecake recipes, the base is the hardest part as it needs to be a bit crunchy. My next attempt will be ground almonds, flaked almonds & just a few digestive biscuits combined with melted butter. I am also going to try a mix of soft cheese, double cream, melted 85% dark chocolate & a little vanilla extract for the top. I wonder if the deli shop guy has some good suggestions?

    Low carb chocolate digestive

    Ingredients
    For the biscuits
    1 cup (90g / 3oz) ground almonds
    1/2 cup (60g / 2oz) ground flaxseeds
    2 tbsp psyllium husks
    2 tbsp Truvia or a similar granulated sweetener
    1 tbsp Sukrin Gold brown sugar substitute
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp arrowroot
    1/2 tsp salt
    90g (3oz) butter
    if required: 1-2 tbsp of milk (dairy or coconut or almond milk)
    for chocolate glazing:
    90g (3oz) sugar-free baking chocolate
    45g (1.5oz) cacao butter
    45g (1.5oz) coconut oil
    Instructions
    Preheat oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5
    Mix all the dry ingredients for the biscuits together thoroughly
    Melt the butter and add to the dry mixture
    Mix everything together with your hands (works better than using a spoon)
    If the mixture seems too dry, add 1 tbsp of dairy or milk (either dairy, or almond or coconut milk)
    Form the dough into a cylinder shape using your hands
    Wrap in clingfilm and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes or so
    Take out and unwrap your dough
    Using a very sharp knife, cut out biscuits about 3-5mm thick
    Place biscuits on a baking tray lined with baking paper
    If biscuits attempt to crumble away, reshape them with your hands
    Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden (keep checking so that they don’t overbake)
    Cool completely before applying glazing
    Optional – chocolate glazing
    Melt the chocolate, cocoa butter and coconut oil in glass bowl over simmering water (bain-marie)
    When melted, mix together thoroughly with a spoon
    If desired, add a couple of drops of liquid sweetener
    Leave the mix to cool to a semi-gooey state (like Nutella or peanut butter)
    Dip your biscuits into the chocolate mix and leave to cool further into a solid state
    If using cocoa powder, melt the butters first and then add the cacao powder to the cooled mix
    Nutritional information
    Serving size: 1 biscuit (assuming 16 are made from the amounts listed above)
    Per biscuit: 200 calories, 3g net carbs, 20g fat, 5g protein
