I can tell you that cinnamon, and walnuts are beneficial to you and since the Splenda is "0" carbs , you should be fine.

Lemon Bread Recipe, don't panic over the lard, most people seem to think the hydrogenated vegetable shortening is better-YUCK. Quickly, veg shortening is made at high temps which chemically alters the oil-bad. Lard is rendered at low temp and is actually lower in monounsaturated fat than some butter.

Yield: 12 servings

1/2 cup lard
1 cup Splenda
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cups almond flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, cream lard with Splenda. Beat in eggs until light and fluffy.

Sift almond flour with baking powder and salt. Alternately add flour mixture with the cream to the creamed mixture, stirring until smooth. Using the rule of thirds.

Fold in nuts and lemon zest and lemon extract. Scrape batter into a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Use a little of the lard to grease the pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into center comes out clean.

This sounds good. How much and what type of nut do you add with the zest and extract?

Ok, the nuts were for grandmaducky's first bread recipe. If you wanted to add nuts to the lemon bread, I would add chopped pistachios, pecans. You can even add shelled and roasted pumpkin seeds. I think about a 1/2 cup of any of them would be sufficient.

Hi Grandmaducky,
Keep in mind that high fiber counteracts the carbs.
I forgot the formula, but I am pretty sure it is a 1:2 ratio.
This means if you have 5 grams of fiber, this will cause 10 grams of carbs to act as if you had 5 grams of carbs.
I will try to find the exact reference for this.
I did see this information on the Animas dot com web site. I also was told this by my dietitian.
This is why I grind my own wheat and my rye flour, so that I get more fiber.

Yea, I was a hard driving business man before the depression started. Now I have lots of free time and still the same drive. So, I am putting it here.
I used to have one advertisement running at a time and would have more than enough calls and work. I recently started 7 advertising campaigns for a 3 month duration and have not had a call in 30 days. I had about 5 calls when I started it, now nothing.
I also am listed on about 15 different computer based network sites, like google, yellow pages, trulia, and many more.

I will do a little surfing later and see what I can come up with. I have recently found a few Wonder bread (smart white / smart wheat) that have been the lowest carb commercial products on the shelves … and tasty too. But I have been thinking lately about dusting off the bread machine and trying out some slendid splenda options. Let's compare notes and votes.
