Yes! Frozen Cool-Whip is good!

I made Keto mug cake for the third night in a row. It doesn't raise my blood sugar crazy high. I like it.

Hey Guiness, i like your signature. I love Johnny Cash. It's a painful song that has touched me. I remember hearing him when I was little, Sunday morning coming down is my favorite song
Anywhoo, I'm not testing my sugars but I did get low the other night. I ate too many cookies so I added an extra glyburide, not a good idea.
Was ok, just sweating. But I'd be smart if I bought some juice for by the bedside.
But, my boy was tested and there was concern for his blood sugars, so I don't buy juice often, he'll drink the whole frozen can or bottle.
I'm just not able to eat right, I love my coffee lately but it's not good for my nerves.
I'm noticing how much my mood is affected by my blood sugar levels though. I hope to get them to normal in the morning again.
Take care everyone.

Had to hit the insulin pretty hard today. I went to the county fair and I am a sucker for fair food. Back to the normal routine tomorrow. I also would like to learn how to make keto mug cake it sounds good.

I will give the recipe that I used first, then how I changed it. I changed it because it was dry and a bit bitter.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a mug until melted (about 20-30 seconds),
Add to the mug: 2 tablespoons almond flour, 2 teaspoons coconut flour, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (not hot chocolate mix!!!), 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar substitute (I used Pyure baking blend), 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1 large egg. Mix and microwave for 50-60 seconds. This is what I used the first two times I made the cake.

My changes: I used 2 tablespoons of coconut oil instead of butter. The butter I have is salted and I thought it was taking away from the 'sweetness.'
I used two tablespoons plus one teaspoon of almond flour.
I used only 1 teaspoon of coconut flour because it has more carbs than almond flour, that is why I added the additional teaspoon of almond flour to the mix.
Instead of using 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, I used 1 1/2 tablespoons.
I added an extra teaspoon of baking blend (sugar substitute) to the mix.
I microwaved it for 50 seconds. My microwave is 1000 watts.

I can look up the calories, carbs, etc. if you need them. There are mug cake recipes online that use liquid sugar substitutes if you prefer to use that. The coconut and almond flour are sold at Walmart. They are a bit expensive but they last a while if you are only using a couple teaspoons and tablespoons.

has anyone tried the Truvia or Stevia non-sugar sweeteners ? i used to use Truvia in my coffee (about the only place i use sweetener) but it had just a tad of after taste, so i would add a touch of raw sugar (i think it's healthier than processed white sugar). then i decided that was too much trouble and i just started buying the Stevia, which is Truvia with a touch of sugar in it .

they are not cheap, but are good for cooking and esp. if you like sweet coffee or tea.

I like Truvia. It is stevia based. I like to use sweetener that has stevia in it.

I like stevia. I find I need more than I do with saccharin or nutrasweet.
