Dressed Up Cinnamon Crisp

Dessert for the holidays might be difficult for many of you, especially if you like pies. But I am keeping it simple this holiday season and hope you do the same. I plan on keeping to the Belly Fat Cure S/C of 5/2 per meal.

For Dessert I will be making a Dressed Up Cinnamon Crisp. Its is very simple and you will likely already have all the ingredients for your holiday menu. I listed the specific brands I used in "The Count", but the brand doesn't matter.

Whole Wheat Tortilla
Heavy Whipping Cream
Natural Sugar Substitute
85 % Dark Chocolate Squares (2 per dessert)
Raspberries (one per dessert)

I sprayed a cookie sheet with Pam and laid 1 Tortilla on it. Spread about 1/2 tsp of butter on it. You can use more if prefer. Then I sprinkled 1/2 packet of Sun Crystals and 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon over the top. Do this to taste, you may like more or less then me! (Just be conscience of the S/C count of your sugar sub.) I used a pizza cutter to divide the tortilla into 8ths.

Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

While that was baking, I made Whipped Cream from Heavy Whipping Cream. Simply put the cream in a clean bowl and use a hand held mixer and mix until it turns into Whipped Cream. You could also use Reddi Whip that has a very low Sugar/Carb count if that is easier.

When the tortillas are done, stack four them with a tsp of Whipped Cream in between and a little extra on top. Shave off some Dark Chocolate on top. You may also like a little more sweetener, depending on your taste. A single raspberry to top it off and a few squares of Dark Chocolate would be a nice addition too!

The Trick? Find the lowest carb/highest fiber you can. Be careful though, some low car tortillas contain Sucralose. Avoid those!

The Count? 1/2 La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious:  9 Carbs, 6 Fiber  Heavy Whipping Cream, Butter and Cinnamon are all have 0g Sugar and Carbs. Sun Crystals: 1g Sugar and 1g Carbs per packet. Total S/C is 1/1 6g Fiber for one Dressed Up Cinnamin Crisp.

  1. Day 3 for me and I'm excited about all of the results that are now possible.
    63yrs of age, farmer, very active and yet the weight just kept growing. 193.6 lbs 5'6"
