Low Carb Pumpkin Cake

Testimony of the Day

“I found Maria in April of 2012, in my 2nd semester of graduate school. Which was when the photo of my before picture was taken. My mom had sent me a link to her blog and I immediately started trying her recipes.

Shortly after, I decided to take her health assessment and started a diet plan and supplements she had suggested. Before the Maria Way I was eating over 100+ grams of carbohydrates a day and who knows how much sugar. I was experiencing intense hungry and mood swings when my blood sugar would drop between meals. Less than a week eating the Maria way and I longer had fluctuations in my blood sugar and as a result I could think clearer! But then the stress of graduate school kicked in and I began returning to my old eating habits. In January of 2013 I attempted to start eating the Maria Way again and even joined a gym.

I’ve lost 25 pounds since January and with my upcoming wedding I am working hard to meet my weight lost goals. I still struggle sticking to the diet on the weekends but I hope to update Maria with my after photo this spring!” -Emily

I truly can’t believe Kai turns 3. It is crazy how it can feel like yesterday that I first held him in Ethiopia yet it feels like we have always been together. This collage of photos shows you just how close I am to this little guy. In the bottom left corner photo you can see how I would have to hold his hand in the car ride home or he would cry. I couldn’t even cook in the kitchen without holding him, which sure made some of my recipe writing difficult, but I wouldn’t give it up for the world. I actually really really miss carrying him around in my sling.

Kai has always been quite attached to me. He would cry when anyone else tried to hold him, which I secretly loved. He was a terrible napper at first, but I think he just wanted to be with me. As you can see in the middle photos, as long as I was holding him in my baby carrier, he would nap! Little stinker!

Anyway, he is now 3 and is such a funny kid. He is much different than his big brother Micah who is a perfectionist and loves to please people. Kai is definitely the opposite; I ask him to do something and he will do the opposite just to get a reaction from me and then he laughs. You can see how he started at an early age digging in my spice drawer (top left photo). I secretly hide my smile when he defies me; I smile because I was totally that kid. Karma!

I know it sounds really cheesy, but these boys were destined to be our children. We are total soul-mates. Happy birthday Kai!

Ingredients
  • 3 cups blanched almond flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil or butter
  • 1 cup Swerve (OR 1 cup Erythritol and 1 tsp stevia glycerite)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups fresh OR canned pumpkin

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 (8 oz) package mascarpone or cream cheese
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup Swerve confectioners
  • 1 tsp stevia glycerite
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl combine almond flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Mix butter, sweetener, eggs and pumpkin until smooth. Stir wet ingredients into dry. Grease and pour into a pumpkin cake pan. Bake 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (you may want to loosely cover with tinfoil so the outside doesn't brown too much). Decorate with brown butter frosting.
  2. To make the Filling: place the butter in a saucepan and heat on high until the butter sizzles and you can see lots of brown (not black) flecks.
  3. Remove from heat and add the mascarpone or cream cheese, almond milk and natural sweetener.
  4. Stir until very smooth. Set aside to cool. This will thicken overnight. Use to decorate cake.

Book Testimony

“Hi Maria! I owe you a big thank you.  I bought your Nutritious and Delicious book last year.  I read your recipes and thought “oh gee, who could eat this way?”  At the time, I was using oat or spelt flour and convincing myself that it was healthy… except that I was carrying about 45 pounds of extra weight. Since I respect you so much, I decided “Hey, let’s listen to Maria” and I stopped all gluten, along with all sugar, about a year ago.  The results have been fabulous.  I lost the 45 pounds and more.  My weight is now the lowest it has been since I was age 25 and went on a 90 day fast (from which I gained back the weight in about 20 days).  Even better, I feel that my lower weight is sustainable, and even better too, I have no intention of ever eating gluten or any sugar ridden gluten alternative instead.  I really wish I would have listened to you sooner.” -MaryJo

My cookbook Nutritious and Delicious is only on sale now for only $12.99.  This is the last printing of this book.  Click HERE to get your copyhttp://www.amazon.com/Nutritious-Delicious-Maria-Emmerich/dp/0988512416/ref=sr_1_4?m=A51JBC26TWGDE&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1380244819&sr=1-4

    I would love to win those chocoperfections. I could make lots of my favorite tiramisu with them.

  • Jenna says:

    I would love to win the chocolate bars! I’ve only been eating this way for a little over 3 weeks but ai’ve already noticed a big difference in the way I feel…more energized, less fatigue & I think I’ve got a little more hop in my step. I definitely don’t hesitate to run upstairs for something I’ve forgotten like I used to! I’ve made so many great recipes but I think pumpkin chocolate chip muffins have been my favorite along with fried “cauli”rice! Thanks for everything you do & Happy Birthday Kai!

    Ps – my birthday is next week, not sure which cake recipe to make yet

  • Cindy says:

    Hi Maria,

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all of your recipes. The one I enjoy the most is the submarine bread. I enjoy it as sandwich bread, make it into cheese breadsticks, the pizza crust – you name I’ve made it – lol. I would love to win the ChocoPerfection bars. I tried to like you and ChocoPerfection on FB, but it wouldn’t process it right now. I will try again later today. Thanks for all you do to create such wonderful recipes.

  • Brenda Killinger says:

    I would love to win the chocolate bars. I love the pumpkin cake recipe and actually anything pumpkin.

  • Joy says:

    I love the Amazing Bread recipe! I make a loaf or two every week! Thank you Maria and Craig!

  • Tamara Hamilton says:

    Shared. Love these bars. I’ve been trying to make mine last until the weather is cool enough to re order. I’d love to win these. Thanks Maria for sharing so much.

  • Terry day says:

    My favorite so far had been the tiramisu! Although it wasn’t an easy decision between all the delicious choices!

  • Janice Plemon says:

    Hi Maria! I’ve been reading your blog for several months now and learning so much. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and helping us change our lives! It’s impossible to pick a single favorite recipe, but I’ll share the one my husband is most overjoyed about–your ice cream recipes! http://mariamindbodyhealth.com/chocolate-pb-swirl-ice-cream/ We made the switch from a popular low carb ice cream to your homemade versions and we are never going back! Hoping to win the ChocoPerfection bars whose addition will bring our ice cream Utopia to a whole new level! Keep up the good work!

  • Emily Stanek says:

    protein bread! I always have some in my refrigerator.

  • Donna says:

    Just tried the pumpkin cake and would have to say it is my favorite at the moment.
    I would love to win the Choco bars to help me keep my blood sugar stable since I am diabetic. Thank you

  • Laura says:

    Love to win the Choco Perfection. Wondering how it taste. And have to go, must make breakfast. What’s for breakfast? Healthified Cream of Wheat! Hmm, Hmm, Hmm. Done! Booyah!

  • Jamie says:

    Not cheesy at all, God always has a plan.

  • Anita says:

    Some yummy chocolate sounds wonderful! For right now the favorite recipe is the pumpkin pancakes. But I honestly haven’t tried one yet that hasn’t been liked from your Nutritious and Delicious cookbook.
    Thanks!!

  • Lani Kroemer says:

    My favorite cookbook is the Kids one. I keep going back to the Bacon Cheeseburger Goodness! It’s unique combination of spices gives it such a nice, hearty flavor. For noodles, I use eggplant or heart of palm. For me, it is more the texture and feel of Chili. I love it. I freeze individual servings in my large silicone muffin shapes, freeze them, pop them out, and put them back in the freezer in a Ziploc bag. Then I just pop them in a bowl covered with a napkin (to stop splattering) and into the microwave for 3 minutes and I am done. I am always ready for a quick meal! I hope this information inspires someone else to try it.

  • Carol says:

    I want to win the chocolate bars! I love the protein bread!

    Carol e.

  • Jody P says:

    Love Maria, love chocolate. Love Maria’s chicken nuggets and so do the kidlets.

  • Carol e says:

    I would love to win the chocolate bars! I enjoy he protein bread. Tried to ‘share’ but it continually failed. Likewise the last time I tried to comment it failed as well. Hope this goes through!

  • Toni says:

    I would love to win! We have been loving the cookie dough cupcakes with frosting!! Yum!!

  • Michelle says:

    Maria’s healthified choco chip perfection cookies!!!!

  • Angela says:

    I am “newer” at making “healthified” recipes and your site along with a few others are a Godsend! I have really enjoyed almost all recipes I’ve tried so far. One of my favorites recently though has been the coconut fried donuts! It’s a little harder for me to gather ingredients for a lot of the recipes I find though because the only health food stores around me are a min. of 45 mins away & so, I usually have to go to at least 3-5 different places that MIGHT carry what I need. :/ I have wanted to try these bars, but havent gotten to a place that carries them as yet, so winning them would be awesome so I could not only have a few bites, but also use in some of the great chocolate recipes I keep finding! 😉

  • Amparo says:

    Love to win the Choco Perfection. I love all your recipes, i do have a few favorites, the protein bread and the Milk Chocolate Ganache Cake.

  • Debbie says:

    Love the pics of your boys in the Pumpkin Patch!

  • Barbara says:

    I LOVE ChocoPerfection bars and would be thrilled to win the box..! My favorite recipe to make with them is the Almond Joy Bars. I try to have a batch made up most times…

  • Linda says:

    I would love to try the Chocoperfection bars!! I have used so many of your recipes now that it’s hard to choose a favorite. I have most of your cookbooks, etc now too – use them all the time. This week I am making your chili recipe. Think it was called Tailgate chili. Seems the right weather for it now in MN. One of these days I will get to your classes too. And I LOVE all the stories you post on Facebook howing all the progress your readers have made! That is so motivating!! And I love the stories about your boys too. They are so cute! And the pumpkin cake is adorable! Happy Birthday to Kai!

  • Christen says:

    Wishing I could find the perfect low carb chocolate bar!

  • Kim says:

    Love the almond joy bars!! Choco perfection bars r the bomb as well!!

  • Christen says:

    Forgot the recipe part! Need a great alternative for tortilla chips that aren’t too cheesy.

  • Marilyn Curttright says:

    I’d love to be including in your give-away. Our go-to recipe (we always have some in the fridge) are your no-bake protein energy bars.

  • Sara says:

    My favorite is your protein waffles. I’m eating them right now!

    Your boys are so beautiful. I hope Kai has an awesome birthday! I think I will serve Kai’s cake at thanksgiving, my girls will love it.

  • Rhonda Edwards says:

    I have bought the Chocoperfection bars before! They are very good. Never had a chance to use them in any recipes of yours though because we eat all of them before I could do that! I plan on ordering some more for the holidays so I can make some health cookies for my family. My daughter is also a client of yours and she buys these bars all the time. She’s very picky when giving candy to my grandchildren!

  • Darla Delmonico says:

    I would love to win the ChocoPerfection. My favorite “healthified” (Otis hard to choose when there are soo many) would have to be the Sub bread!

  • Kathy Robertson says:

    I would love to win the ChocoPerfection giveaway.
    My favorite healthified recipes are anything sweet. I’ve made chocolate chip cookies and they’ve gone over really well

  • Debbie Meissner says:

    This time of year I am always in the mood for anything pumpkin. I have made your pumpkin muffins and the pumpkin smoothie. I can’t wait to try this pumpkin cake. Would love to win the cocoperfection bars.

  • Kelly Land says:

    I would LOVE these bars. Been wanting to get them for awhile but could never quite afford them! Our favorite recipe so far has been your protein pizza! So nice to be able to eat pizza with the rest of my family now!

  • Holly says:

    Happy birthday Kai! 🙂

    I’d love to win your giveaway, Maria. Our family loves all of your recipes, but the granola and bread are the two that don’t stay in the house for very long. I’m working on trying as many of your recipes as I can!

  • Karen says:

    Our favorite recipe by far is the sub roll. Would love to win the chocoperfection bars. I can’t do the other 2 requirements in the list since I’m not on facebook.

  • shewonnah says:

    I haven’t tried the choco perfection bars YET, but I will as soon as I win these (fingers crossed). As for my favorite “healthified” recipe, I have to put my money on the amazing thin crust pizza, sooooo easy and yummy to the nth degree.

  • Jan says:

    Since my head craves chocolate and my intestines turn to liquid in the presence of malitol, I would love the chance to try the new riff on chocolate. My family is astounded at your recipes that use cauliflower, which they claim not to like (I never share ingredients until after they’ve approved the dish!).

  • Cindi Hoag says:

    Would love to win these. Our favorite right now is the pumpkin bread, so perfect for the fall season. It’s so moist, not dry like some quick breads. Love all you do!

  • Debby Whitsitt says:

    I’d love to win your giveaway, Maria. My favorite recipe so far is the pizza!

  • Karen says:

    Happy Birthday to you little guy, Kai! I would love to try these bars! I follow you on Facebook as well as your blog. I love your recipes!!! Yumm!!!

  • Susan Lynn says:

    It’s pumpkin season…Fall fell at my house, fell for the pumpkin cake!!! Next it’s PIE!

  • Kate says:

    Hi Maria,

    I love your choc chip cookie recipe. I make them at least two times a week! I would love to win the chocoperfection bars!
    Also, love the ice cream and have been baking your yummy choc donuts and pumpkin muffins! Love all your recipes! Yummy!

  • Erica says:

    I would love to win the bars and make more of my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies!!!! They are the perfect healthified treat at the end of a day!!!! Thank you so much for all you do….your website has been such a blessing to me.

    ps…how adorable are those delicious looking cakes!!! Happy Birthday Kai!!!!

  • aimee hart says:

    i love all of your recipes! have never tried a chocoperfection bar but would LOVE to!!!! one of my favorite staples is the hard boiled egg pudding. also love the pizzas and all of your sweets. i think you’re a genius!

  • Judi Barrale says:

    Here here for the ChocoPerfection bars! Can only find them at one health food store in our area. Current healthified recipe would be your bagels. I’ve been making them using just about any flavor…Italian, chocolate Jay Robb, cheese, etc. … so I can use them in many ways with many toppings. Thanks!

  • Cate says:

    been wanting to try these – hopefully I can if I win 🙂

  • Teresa says:

    Shared, liked, and would like to win the bars to make cookie dough dip, my favorite recipe.

  • Sonia says:

    I love your recipies! Your pumpkin protein waffels are my fav! I WOuld love to win the Chocolate bars. I have been wanting to try them for awhile! Happy Birthday Kai!

  • Tiani says:

    Would love to try these chocolate bars! My favorite recipes so far have been the tiramasu and the sub rolls. I just bought the 30 day accelerated meal plan which included all of your books and will be trying more recipes soon. Made the protein buns yesterday, but have not eaten them yet. My husband and I will be starting the Keto plan on Monday.

  • Janine says:

    I made no added anything applesauce from mostly homegrown organic apples(some were store bought organic apples) last week. It is the best applesauce we have ever eaten. It is great to eat something that tastes so good and you know it very nutritious. Also fun to make it and only have to use one ingredient. I saved and froze the core and peelings to make at a later date.
    I would really like to win and try those bars as they look more nutritious than what I have been buying.

  • Linda Donaldson says:

    Love, love, love ChocoPerfection! My favorite recipe so far is the cinnamon rolls. I’ve yet to try one with a ChocoPerfection bar because I keep eating them!

  • Dawn says:

    Shared :). I’d love to try these!

    So far my favorite healthified recipe is the your monkey bread! Coming in second would be the amazing pizza :). But again, that’s so far.. I have so many recipes of yours yet to try! 😀

  • Taylor J. says:

    Hope I win! Haven’t had time to try any family recipes since I’m busy with schoolwork (and I don’t think my sisters trust me with cooking that much :0) )

  • Debbie Vogler says:

    I love these bars! I couldn’t have survived the diet change without them. And, of course Maria’s help!

  • Susan Pelter says:

    Shared, liked and etc! Love these bars — my DH adores them and I want to win! Our favorite healthified recipe is the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie!

  • Ann says:

    The glazed pumpkin bread is the bomb! I wish I could shout it from the rooftop how your blog/site/webinars have helped me to actually eat the way my body has always needed me to eat…and in the process have become healthier and lose a ton of weight. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!

  • Tracey says:

    Would LOVE to win the chocolate! One of our favorite things to make is the Vanencia orange cake with a ChocoPerfection bar chopped up in it. DELICIOUS !

  • Melinda Cowell says:

    Shared. Love. Thankful 🙂

  • Betty says:

    I would love to win the Chocoperfection bars. I have started replacing my cookbooks with yours. When I receive one of your books in the mail, I always start with the first recipe and work my way through the whole book one recipe at a time. I’m bummed when I get to a recipe that calls for Chocoperfection. I have to skip it because I don’t have this ingredient. Your recipe for protein rolls is my favorite by far. I love a good sandwich and your protein rolls have made it possible for me to continue to enjoy them. Just like you I freeze my rolls and what a life saver this has been. I’m always ready for a cook-out or fast lunch. I even take my protein rolls to restaurants too!! Thanks Maria for all you do. Happy Birthday to Kai and blessing to your sweet family.

  • Eliza says:

    I always thought it was weird how much I enjoyed seeing pictures of your kids on this blog, but reading this post made me realize the reason I enjoy those pictures so much is because there is so much love in them– it comes off the screen. Thanks for sharing that, it was beautiful 🙂
    I can’t decide on a favorite recipe– I go through phases! Right now I can’t live without protein bread– it’s just so handy and perfect! I use the left over yolks to make your lemon curd, which I eat right off the spoon like a maniac!

  • Anne Logston says:

    Maria, I’d like to win the ChocoPerfection bars — I have to agree, though, that the glazed pumpkin bread is my favorite Healthified recipe, although your bread bowls for soup are a close second. I’ve been low carb since 2003 and your recipes are *incredible*!

  • Debbie says:

    Forgot to write I would love to win the bars!! I make your energy bars almost every week! Easy Peasy!

  • Kay N. says:

    I’m a member on FB of Maria Mind Body Health…

  • Autumn Dykes says:

    My sharing and liking is done, now I would LOVE to win these bars to help my journey of 150 pounds to lose!! My favorite healthified recipe is cauliflower crust pizza!

  • Kay N. says:

    I already like Choco Perfection on FB

  • Kay N. says:

    My favorite “made over” recipe is spaghetti squash cooked in my Nesco with spaghetti sauce and parmesan cheese.

  • Joan Wood says:

    Oh my. Would love to with the chocoperfection bars. Yum It was a hard decision on which recipe to put down. I think if I could only put one it would be the bread as I can do so many different things with it. So Happy Birthday Kai! So love the pictures. warmed my heart. The song can’t you feel the love tonight pop in my head as I was looking at them. Thanks for sharing with us.

  • Vanessa says:

    I would love to try the ChocoPerfecction bars!!! I love ALL your recipes and have tried several including your pecan pie, zucchini cake, mint chocolate gelato, Brownies, Eclairs, tiramisu, Calzones, Psyllium husk bread, Biscuits and gravy …. But my favorite is probably your protein bread I make it at least once a week. I have used it to make tortillas, buns, Cinnamon fry bread… Thank you for these great recipes please keep up the good work!!!

  • karen says:

    Happy Birthday to Kai! Our favorites are the lemon bars, cheesecake and creme brulee recipes. I’d like to win too 🙂

  • Pam says:

    Oh, how I would love to win! Cookie Dough Ice Cream is a winner at our house!

  • I already like your FB page!

  • Cami L says:

    I am so happy for you and your sweet family! Having to choose a favorite recipe would be hard because I love them all! We enjoyed your pumpkin pancakes with coconut syrup this morning 🙂 My kids regularly request your Hot dog “Mac” and Cheese though, so I am pretty sure that would be on the top of my family’s list.

  • Jenny says:

    I would love to win these bars! I love all of your recipes! I cant live without your amazing subs/bread…I love your pumpkin muffins & I make your stir fry cauli rice all the time as well as many other recipes! I’ve lost close to 20 pounds (mostly inches cuz I weight train & have gained a bunch of wonderful muscle) since june of this year, eating healthified & following the Maria way! I love the way I feel & I try to influence as many others as possible so they too will get “healthified” & heal their body!! Thank you for all you do Maria!

  • Kari says:

    I love chocoperfection!!! I was diagnosed type 1 adult diabetes at age 51 two years ago, and it can be a struggle!!! I eat low carb, and have chocoperfection when I crave something sweet. It does not raise my blood sugar! I am so thankful for this product, and healthy eating sites like this one! I love the pumpkin/chocolate chip bread recipe! We don’t have a Whole Foods store here (chocolate chips), but might try using chocoperfection in the recipe. I think they might sell chips, but will have to check that out on their website.

  • I like the ChocoPerfection page on FB

  • I love all healthified dessert recipes. Like cheesecake!

    • Wenchypoo says:

      I’ll pass on the bars, but always ALWAYS have your Amazing Maria bread around here in one form or another: loaves, sandwich buns, even hot dog buns, mini-sub rolls, and bagels! Hubby and I can’t do sugar alcohols in any form, so we’ll pass on the bars.

  • Laura says:

    I love your blog Maria and your wonderful recipes, but the best of the best is the healthified bread. Incredible, it just changed my life!

  • Joan M says:

    I would LOVE to win these… and I love your Cream Cheese Brownie recipe the most of anything… they freeze so well. Love your breads also and everything else I have tried!

  • Susan says:

    Done! I make healthified bread all the time. Who would have thought to put psyllium husk powder in a bread recipe. Brilliant!

  • Angela says:

    Happy Birthday to Kai 🙂 Love the pumpkin cakes.
    My favorite recipe you have ever created is the Psyllium husk bread/sub rolls. They have been a life saver for me. I have convinced my son and his wife to get into a healthier lifestyle as wel. Just made the vanilla bean cheesecake for them yesterday. Ordered the pizelle maker to try making the ice cream cones 🙂
    Thanks for all the hard work you do to make our lives easier…

  • dita says:

    These bars are terrific. Just like your wonderful website. I hope I win them. If not, I will continue to enjoy all your healthy recipes and your wonderful family. Keep up the good work.

  • Kristin says:

    I have always wanted to try the chocolate perfection bars, yes I really would like to win!! Happy birthday Kai! Favorite recipe…from the crock pot cook book, tamale pie.

  • Louise says:

    Love your website and would love to win the bars! I print off and “try” as many of your recipes as I have time for away from a very hectic volunteer schedule. What a neat pumpkin cake… makes me wish I had another grandchild!!!

  • Sandra Pacino says:

    I love the dark chocolate almond…have not tried the mint or raspberry ones. I am getting back on track after getting derailed last summer. I lost 50lbs. prior to my slide. I feel so much better and loose so many aches and pains when eating low carb. Thank you for your time and energy.

  • Hannah says:

    I would love to win the chocolate bars–they sound amazing! My favorite recipe is the delicious cinnamon bread 🙂

  • Andrea says:

    Maria,
    This post brought tears to my eyes! Not cheesy at all! I know what it’s like to have little ones that were destined to be yours, even if they weren’t born of you! I have 3 amazing step kiddos and it was always so funny when they were little and people would say…wow you sure look like your mom! We would just chuckle! God is so good! I also have another little one that we had 2 years ago and I totally relate to the turning away to smile at the defiance! They are so precious and grow so fast! Enjoy every minute you have with them!

    ~Andrea

  • Eva says:

    Would love to win these. Liked the Facebook pages and we love the Reece’s muffin recipe and the amazing bread.

  • Judith Rice says:

    So far, the recipe I use most is for your healthy cheez -its.. they are a lifesaver and keep me honest and on the path… There are many other recipes I love but use that one the most. I wold love to win the ChocoPerfection Bars!

  • Stephany says:

    Hi Maria, It appears that our boys share a birthday. Kai’s cake looks fabulous! Wish I could have succeeded at making a healthy alternative for my son’s birthday cake. I tried and they turned out too dry so we ran to the store for the junk from the bakery. It tasted great but I have tremendous guilt from serving it to others let alone having some myself. We are still eating my mess ups as a family because they are still really good. I tried making your milk chocolate ganache cake and also a vanilla version of your strawberry cupcakes.
    Our favorite recipe so far of all time would be the pumpkin bread. My mom was visiting over the weekend for my son’s birthday party and she tried a piece and asked if I would make her a loaf to take home today. Wonderful fall recipe!

  • Beth says:

    Happy birthday Kai!! What a beautiful family! Totally agree with Andrea, enjoy them! Time goes so fast! Our favorites so far are the popovers, angel food cake and the lemon curd. Enjoy the day Kai! 🙂

Thanks Maria!

Several of the people wanted to try them, so I kept one for myself and passed out the rest. They loved them…I make it into bread, rolls, and buns. The thin pizza crust (which is almost the same) runs a close second.

Right now, as a newbie, the Twiced Baked Cauliflower is at the top of my list. Your recipes have sparked a new excitement in me for cooking healthy AND flavorable dishes.

    Love so many of your healthified recipes, it’s hard to choose a favorite, but your chocolate lava cake is beyond amazing! (This chocolate-lover would put those Chocoperfection Bars to great use! Would love to win!) Happy birthday, Kai!

  • Marisa says:

    We love the spinach/feta quiche and thin crust pizza dough recipes!

  • SuzyQsy says:

    What a sweet love you have you have for your boys! Buying all 7 of your books was one of the best things I’ve ever done! I love knowing my little bits are eating such healthy food! I have liked and shared, as well as the Chocoperfection page! I’ve never tried one, but we are dying to! Our favorite recipe has to be the chocolate chip cookies bc it was my husband most favorite thing before! The Just LIke Sugar is key and I’ve been fooling non-grain and sugar free people with them! Thank you for what you do, truly! (And I’ve lost 17lbs so far!!)

  • Jen says:

    I’ve never had any of these bars and have been wanting to try them, but I’ve tapped out the expenses with the cookbooks, assessments, and supplements. My 9 year-old and I spent some quality time together a week or so ago and tried the “healthified” nutter butter cookies. They were way too big and not at all what the picture looked like, but we enjoyed them all the same. The best part of it was that night at his bedtime when he asked me if I knew what his favorite part of making the cookies was…..his reply “spending the time and making them with you, mom. That was the best part of all”. Thanks Maria, it was a reminder that I need to take the time to smell the roses and make the cookies. 😉

  • Kristaleen says:

    I’d love to win these bars 🙂 is make chocolate chip cookies with them of course 🙂

  • Lynn Addis says:

    I would love to win the chocolate! The almond bars made me do a “happy dance”!

    We have several favs, but I love the convenience of the waffles.

  • Ann says:

    OMG…3 is perfection! Such a truly fabulous age. Thank you for all you do. I use the recipe for sub rolls in various forms almost every week. I love having “bread”. My littles are older, 25, 25, 21 and 16. All of the ages and stages are wonderful, but 3 is so delicious! So generous of you to share so much. Fondly, Ann

  • Shanna says:

  • Denise Stewart says:

    I would very much love to win a box of these bars. It is so hard to find a bar sweetened with anything other than malitol. Fingers crossed!

    I just started “liking” you a couple of weeks ago and the only recipe I’ve had a chance to try is the Amazing bread and it was great! It was such a treat to have bread with our meal. Loved it.

  • Rendy says:

    I have not tried the Chocoperfection yet and would love to win them. I have all of Maria’s books and so far my favorite recipe has been the Apple Spice Cake using tea instead of apples. My kids and husband loved it. I tell everyone about it and they look at me like I have lost my mind. Then I start telling them about “Maria’s way” and most end up getting her website information.

  • Sandy says:

    I would love to win these bars. I have been wanting to try them. Loved your cream of mushroom soup recipe.

I’d use them to make a zucchini cake – a particular favorite of a friend who is trying to decide whether to go low-carb or not.

  • Della says:

    I would love to win the ChocoPerfection bars! They are so yummy! Your cinnamon streusel muffins are one of my favorites! 🙂

    Aw, happy birthday to your sweet little guy! You all look like you were meant for each other 🙂
    My son will be 3 in March and I am excited but at the same time don’t want him to get any bigger/older. I know for sure he’ll be getting a Maria healthified cake for his bday though 🙂
    I’m hoping to snag a book or two once we get some money in, I would love to have them. Your recipes never fail me, even when I mess them up, they’re still delicious! (I’m a pretty good cook/baker, but it’s always a crap shoot on whether I will bungle egg whites or not)
    I can’t enter the contest because I’m not on Facebook, but one day I WILL try those Chocoperfection bars!

  • Tami D says:

    your protein bread, because I have gone years without eating bread and now I can have it again (:

  • Kathy says:

    Shared and liked.
    My favorite is your protein bread. There are so many uses but everything else I have tried has been a winner as well! I love all your books!

  • C Lyons says:

    Just had ‘healthified’ pancakes and life is good again!!! Don’t even need a topping, they’re THAT good. Bless you Maria!

  • Sandy says:

    Count me in for some healthy chocolate! And I’m loving the thin crust pizza.

  • Trish D says:

    Ooh, would LOVE to win those chocoperfection bars! I’ve just recently started seriously changing our diet, so haven’t made a ton of your recipes yet, but loved the seafood risotto with cauliflower. I also have the protein crisps ordered so I can make the whatchamacallit bar 🙂

  • Regina Gregory says:

    I would love to win the Choco bars! I’ve never tried them because they’re so expensive, so winning some would give me that chance!
    My favorite recipe of yours is the protein bread. If I can keep that on hand, I’m good to go!

  • Shelley Loudermilk says:

    I would absolutely love to win the Choco bars! My family is doing low-carb for our health. I am not the greatest of “cooks” so I have tended to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible. However, I have just recently started printing recipes and trying them out to figure out which I can actually make turn out good and which my family loves. Getting these Choco bars would be a great addition to the kitchen and allow me to experiment with some fantastic new recipes!!!

  • Allison Jenkins says:

    I would love to win this giveaway as my entire family consists of chocoholics!!! My fav healthified recipe is the slow cooker chicken parmesean and my daughters fav is the Malt “OH” Meal. Happy birthday Kai 🙂

  • Jeanna says:

    We love your cheesecake recipes and I would love to try a chocolate version!

  • Tracee Wargo says:

    HEALTHIFIED!!!!! I would LOVE to win these chocoperfection bars – I had them once but haven’t been able to get them again as bad as I want them! They are like NONE other and was amazed that I had no side effects from them. Fried Cauli Rice, that amazing bread recipe … oh and the pizza crust recipe.

    Happy Birthday sweet Kai!!!!

  • Sara says:

    I love the eggplant parm.

  • Michelle M says:

    I would love to win the chocolate bars 🙂 my favorite recipe of yours is the healthified calzone, I could eat one every day and not get sick of it, thanks for making eating healthy enjoyable with all of your amazing recipes!

  • Josie Griffiths says:

    I would love to win these they are so good! I love the sub rolls and the Sloppy Joe stuffed peppers. Seems like almost any recipe I make of yours my family loves. Thank you so much for all the information you share.

  • Joan Andrews says:

    Hi, I would love to win the chocoperfection bars, especially as I have checked around in stores like jungle Jim’s (ohio) and can’t find them to try…I enjoy the healthified granola …especially as a snack. ( I think I am allergic to almonds…especially the almond milk) I grew up on a dairy farm in Dallas, Wi ( you probably know where that is), and since milk is important to me, I found some flax milk recently that seems to work out and has calcium. I have used your name wben I talk about my new way of eating, and I so appreciate the explanations you give for how food affects us, etc. in your blog. I haven’t lost as much weight as I would like to have because I am enjoying too much healthified dessert such as the raspberry chocolate cheesecake. Thanks again.

  • Katy says:

    I love Chocoperfection bars! The recipe I make the most is the Cordon bleu meatloaf. Yum!

  • Emillea says:

    I have yet to try chocoperfection bars. I just bought 3 of your books (2 cookbooks) and am sure it would be great to substitute some of these for high carb chocolate chips, maybe in a great fat bomb!

  • gina says:

    I would totally love to win this amazing prize! We love the “HEALTHIFIED” CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE

  • Michelle says:

    Hi Maria – I have followed your advice and blogs sine you first adopted the boys. My how they have grown. I’ve purchased books and store items also. I am in the throws of menopause and after seeing my weight increase 13lbs in one year (of my best efforts), I would like to try the 5HTP. Which one would you recommend? I am not on any anti-depressants.

  • Judy says:

    Love chocolate. Just made the fudge striped cookies. They were great.

  • Jessica C says:

    Hi Maria, we have four of your books and have tried so many recipes. I LOVE the coconut flour pancakes and the zucchini noodles in your Alfredo sauce… Yum! Chocolate bars would be a great addition to our pantry! Thanks for all you do.

  • Stephanie Cox says:

    I would love to win!!! My favorite recipe is for the “healthified” subs! I make burger buns so I can enjoy burgers still. 🙂

  • Teresa says:

    We love the bread!! I am making these (small ones) for my daughters halloween party. Going to do a practice bake this weekend and I can wait to see if I can get mine to look as good as yours. WE LOVE CHOCOLATE! 🙂

  • Jackie Adlington says:

    I’ve really enjoyed your Metabolism book and the Sweets book and now I am interested in getting the slow cooker cookbook. Just in time for winter!!

  • barbara Schlatter says:

    I do not have a facebook account, how can I participate in this *give away* ?

  • linda says:

    Happy Birthday Kai! My favorite Maria recipe is the pizza recipe. I would use the chocolate bars in your sweet recipes.

  • Kindra says:

    I would love the Chocoperfection bars – my kids have asked for them in their stockings at Christmas! My kids love your Pumpkin Muffins with glaze from the Nutritious and Delicious cookbook. The whole family loves the Mexican Chicken from your crockpot book. I love your cheesecakes — especially the vanilla bean or turtle!

  • Deb says:

    Maria, would you be so kind as to let those of us who choose not to facebook know what we can do to have a chance at winning as well??? Have followed your site for a long time and enjoy your recipes! Please let us non-facebook people share the bounty as we are supporters too.

  • Darrell says:

    I want to win! I want to win! I need to win, so I will try the recipes that use these bars. I have used many recipes, but my favorite is the avocado sorbet( use lemon extract). I even add protein powder (and a little more almond mild) to this recipe and make a very delicious smoothie. Ummm, Ummm, Good!

  • Ann says:

    Wow, sounds really great! Would be delighted to win!! I love the healthier way to make pancakes! BTW, I have two little adopted fellas (domestic) plus one surprise “homegrown boy” after 13 years of marriage. My boys are now 3, 5 and 8. Such beautiful gifts…each of them. I love them so much I can hardly stand it (even though in a 10 minute span while I tried to get dinner on the table, I cleaned up a potty accident, a broken plate, spilled water, chased a naked kid, etc. – never a dull moment…well if there is, someone is usually doing something he shouldn’t!)

  • Mari says:

    I am not entering the contest! Just wanted to let you know that I made the pumpkin cake. No one could believe that it was low carb and gluten free, and it disappeared quickly. My son-in-law and my daughter typically refuse to eat anything GF or LoCarb, but they each had two pieces of this and raved about it. On a side note, when I was a child, my dad used to go to one of the day old bread stores, and every week he came home with a wonderfully moist spice cake called a raisin bar spice cake. I have tried and failed to replicate that cake for years until now. This delicious cake tastes just like I remember it, but better. This is my new favorite cake, and no I didn’t put raisins in it! What I love about this cake other than the taste and texture, is that it is so wonderfully moist, and even three days later, it is still light and moist. Even better, it doesn’t trigger a binge. One piece did it for me. I baked it in layers and froze one layer for future use. Thanks so much for making a dream come true, and the best cake ever. We all loved it, and I’m not typically someone who eats sweets or desserts.

  • Volanta Peng says:

    Winning would be awesome! Thank you, Maria. Right now, my favorite healthy recipes would be crustless pumpkin pie, and mashed cheddar mustard “potatoes” with sour cream. Yum. 🙂

  • Marti says:

    I just found your website today upon the recommendation of a friend. I’ve been using coconut flour in my baking now for several months but haven’t perfected the balance needed to ensure moistness 😉 Your blog gave me the answers I’ve been looking for. I’ve got a batch of the chai tea donuts in the oven right now and I KNOW I’d definitely find a use for the ChocoPerfection bars!!

  • Melissa Gessler says:

    Hi Maria, of course I would LOVE to win this chocoperfection giveaway…who wouldn’t!?!?! About 8 months ago, I started following the “Maria Way” for the sake of my 6 year old daughter, she has struggled for years with stomach issue, irregularity, loss of appetite because food made her miserable…the list goes on! I couldn’t put her through any more doctor visits and uncomfortable attempts to “fix” her problems. She weighed 35lbs on her 6th birthday!!! (Probably the only 1st grader still required to wear a 5pt harness carseat) Since following this lifestyle and recipes, she is so happy and is excited about dinner, cooking, dessert…she enjoys her food and has always loved our garden, but now it has a different meaning. She has learned so much about healthy choices and has taken ownership over her choices-I’m so proud of her. And most importantly, she is finally growing!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart-I would cry because I felt so helpless for her and I didn’t know how to help…Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! We love so many of your recipes, but our current favorites are making pizza together (your crust recipe) and choc. zucchini bundt cake! Yummy!

  • Eva says:

    I already liked both Facebook pages, but I would really like to win this. LOL!! We love the donut recipe over here. Yum!!

  • Megan says:

    Hi Maria! I would LOVE to win these bars! I’m a type 1 diabetic, and your recipes have helped me to cut my insulin intake by more than half in the past year! I love your quesadilla recipe – I make them ahead of time for a week’s worth of lunches! The ChocoPerfection would certainly aid in some upcoming holiday baking! Thanks for all you do 🙂

  • Pia says:

    A) I liked you on FB. B ) I liked CP on FB, C) The molten lava cake is awesome. A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

  • Marsha Gentry says:

Love getting your updates on fb and pinning your pins…thank you, thank you, and of course I LOVE chocolate.

  • Kathy says:

    I would love to win the chocolate bars. LOVE chocolate and a healthier chocolate bar would be a WIN WIN.

  • Judy says:

    I’ve wanted to try these bars for a long time now. I’d try them in your chocolate chip cookies — great recipe!!

  • gigi says:

    I really enjoyed the pizza dough, it was crusty and I didn’t have to make 2 different pies.

  • jean says:

    Would love to win the bars to use in chocolate chip cookies.

  • Nicole L says:

    I would love to win these bars. I have not tried them yet, but after 2 months on the Maria Way, I know that this is how my body was meant to eat. I am transitioning my children slowly, and showing them that they CAN have “candy” would be such a help. I have several friends and family members that are starting their own journey now, and would like to share them with them and others as well !

  • I would so love to win these, I have been low carbing for the 2nd time for 2 months. Originally started with Atkins, got to my goal weight, and gained it all back. Now I’m back and I’m feeling great. I LOVE chocolate and imagine this would be the perfect snack! I have a huge Christmas buffet at our home Christmas Day and could imagine that these would be great in a lot of desserts!!

  • Lorrene says:

    I would love to win the bars.

  • Mead says:

    Honestly, I’m just now getting back into healthy eating habits. Low carbing again for the past few months. It’s really helped me lose weight and also improve my health. This is the second time visiting your blog. You have a beautiful family and a great writing style. I haven’t tried any recipes from here yet. So far I’ve only been eating according to what is allowed on Atkins. I’ve also eaten cauliflower tater tots, low carb meatloaf(pork rinds instead of bread crumbs), and I make my own chocolate. It’s made being on the diet so much easier and comfortable.

  • Tricia Rogers says:

    These bars look amazing. My favorite healthify recipe is low Carb Chilli. I make this quite often. I put many different veggies to change it up. I also use the chilli as sauce for other meal types.

  • Paula says:

    Oh my, what is this low carb, healthy chocolate of which you speak? I have been missing out and I need to get on board, because chocolate is usually the thing that stands between me and healthy eating. That is, until now! I love your recipes, too! I’m making the little debbie’s this weekend — they look delish! Thank you for all you do to give us the tools to live healthier! 🙂

  • Alice says:

    I would love to win these bars so I can share great low carb treats with family and friends. They could then see that eating low carb is not all bad.

  • 1956okie says:

    Never tried Chocoperfection–would love to, though! Loved the Mexican meatloaf recipe. And the protein buns. Just really digging into your recipes and stocking up on ingredients to cook the “Maria way,” so have a LONG list to try next!

  • Carla says:

    I would love to win these bars. I couldn’t afford them earlier in my life and have so many different recipes I want to try with this bars. The “healkthified ” recipe I like is one I just got recently from your website, Twinkies. I have died and gone ot heaven, they are so good.
