calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 1/2 head, medium (5-6" dia) Cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup Total 2% Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Bob's Red Mill Organic Coconut Flour (2 tbsp serving)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder (Sodium Aluminum Sulfate, Double Acting)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp White Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Coriander Seed
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 3 large Egg White
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil


  1. Boil salted water in a medium pot. Add cauliflower and cook 3 minutes. Drain water and dry on a kitchen towel until cool enough to touch then puree in a food processor until finely chopped.
  2. Add the yogurt to the food processor along with the coconut flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander and nutmeg. Process 1-2 times until combined.
  3. Add the egg whites to the bowl of a stand mixer or use a handheld mixer to whip the egg whites (add in 1/8 tsp lemon juice or cider vinegar to help with whipping) to stiff peaks. Fold egg whites into cauliflower mixture in 3 additions.
  4. Place a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and heat the oil until it shimmers. Drop cauliflower mixture by tablespoonfuls onto the skillet; space about 1 inch apart for best results. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until puffed and golden. Serve warm or cold. 1 serving is 1 fritter. Makes 12 fritters.
Other ideas: Top with Spinach and Shrimp Dip (click to see the Atkins recipe) or smoked salmon or trout with a dollop of sour cream and chives.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
