calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 1/2 cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Organic High Fiber Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk Unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 3 tbsp Xylitol
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)


This recipe is suitable for all phases except for the first two weeks of Induction due to the almonds.
  1. Prepare a large skillet or deep fat fryer with 2-3 inches of oil. Heat to 350°F. In a small bowl combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and salt. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
  2. In a small sauce pan bring the coconut milk, butter and 1 tablespoon xylitol to a boil. Remove from heat and add the flour mixture stirring until very thick and it forms a ball. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Once cool add 1 egg and mix until a very thick paste forms, about 1 minute. Drop by tablespoons 4-8 at a time into the fryer and fry until golden brown and crisp on the outside; about 3-4 minutes; rotating halfway through. Repeat until all of batter is used. It should make about 16 balls. Set aside on a paper towel once cooked.
  4. In a blender pulse the remaining 2 tablespoons of xylitol with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 1 -2 times, until xylitol granules are a little smaller. When each batch is finished roll in the xylitol-cinnamon mixture until evenly coated and set on a serving platter. Enjoy immediately or they may be kept at room temperature for 1 day. May also freeze for 3 months or refrigerate for up to 1 week. 2 balls per serving.

Cooking Tip

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.
