How to use Carbalose Flour?

Carbalose flour is a low-carb flour that is made using a process that results in enzyme-modified wheat. It is low in carbs and high in fibre, which makes it a great option for diabetics.

Carblose flour can be used in most baking recipes and is also great for breading and frying recipes.

Carbalose flour is used in a 1-to-1 ratio with All-purpose flour, which makes it a super easy substitute.

Carbalose flour is heavier and denser than regular all-purpose flour. I always put it through a sieve or sifter before baking with it, to lighten it up a bit. It does not go through a sifter well if the sifter is a double-screened sifter. In this sugar free chocolate chip cookie recipe, I used a sieve to sift the flour.

Carbalose Flour tastes similar to all-purpose flour. It is not grainy or gritting like Almond Flour or other types of ground nut flour.

Since Carbalose flour is denser than regular all-purpose flour when making bread add extra yeast, or use a combination of half all-purpose flour and half Carbalose. Getting Carbalose flour to rise to a fluffy bread is not usually successful.

The Baking Stone

No one likes burned cookies, which is why I always baked my cookies on a stone. I have never (and I mean never) had cookies burn on a stone. When I recently made this sugar free chocolate chip cookie recipe, I even left some cookies in the oven for an extra 20 minutes by mistake and they were not burned because I used my stone. They were crispy, but not burned.

When you use a baking stone, the oils from baking are absorbed into the stone, which means you never have to add cooking spray or anything to make it non-stick. They get ugly over time and discoloured but I would never use anything else.

Tips for making Awesome Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Chocolate Chips on top – Sometimes it is difficult to get an even number of chocolate chips throughout your cookies. When adding the chocolate chips, reserve a couple of tablespoons of chips. When you scoop your cookie dough onto the baking stone or cookie tray, place a couple of chips on top of each cookie. This will ensure that you get a nice looking baked cookie.

Stiff dough – If the dough seems stiff, you can add another tablespoon of warm water. This will help with scoop and softness.

Pressing the cookie – Sugar Free cookies spread less than cookies made with sugar in them. Once you have your sugar-free chocolate chip cookies on the baking stone, press them down slightly using the back of a metal spoon. Dip the spoon into warm water first to prevent sticking. Using a fork will make lines on the top of the cookies, so always use a spoon.

Room Temperature – Make sure that your ingredients, especially the eggs and butter are at room temperature. I know some people who store their chocolate chips in the freezer, so make sure they are at room temperature as well. If your eggs are not at room temperature and you are pressed for time, you can place them in a bath of warm water to warm them up.

SIFT SIFT SIFT! – Sifting the flours, regardless of the types of flour that you use, will make your flour more fluffy. This is especially important when using low-carb and nut flour. These types of flour tend to be denser and we need all the help we can get.

Substitutions

Sweetener – You can use your favourite sweetener, but make sure that it is zero carbs if you are wanting to keep it diabetic-friendly. Not all sweeteners are equal and some contain alcohol sugar, which can affect blood sugars in some people. Not all sweeteners are good for baking, so make sure that you choose one that is baking compatible.

Flours – You can use other flour if desired. Always remember that this can impact the recipe’s nutritional values.

Chocolate Chips – I t use ChocZero Sugar-Free dark chocolate chips in many of my recipes. You can use any sugar-free chocolate chips. Check for carb content before using as some brands are lower than others.

Vanilla Extract – Feel free to use artificial vanilla extract in place of real. It is less expensive and will not impact this sugar free chocolate chip recipe.
