How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 0 1/2 tsp BAKING SODA
  • 0 1/4 cup COCONUT FLOUR
  • 0 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener, Brown
  • 0 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 3 each EGG
  • 4 Tbsp SOUR CREAM
  • 0 1/2 cup Butter, salted or unsalted
  • 0 1/4 cup pieces or chips WALNUTS
  • 0 1/4 tsp XANTHAN GUM
  • 1 tablespoon Banana flavor
  • 0 2/3 cup Almond Meal, from whole almonds
  • 0 1/4 cup Maple Syrup (sugar-free)
  • 30 grams Whey Protein Concentrate (30g=1/3 cup)
  • 0 1/2 tsp SALT
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the almond meal, whey protein, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and xanthan gum until well combined.
  3. Melt the butter. In a medium bowl, whisk together the butter, sweeteners, sour cream, eggs, vanilla and banana extract.
  4. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to thoroughly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smooth the top and sprinkle the chopped walnuts evenly over the batter. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before removing from pan. Let cool completely before slicing into 10 roughly ½-inch, equal slices. One slice is one serving.
For extra banana flavor, mix 1/4 ounce of chopped freeze dried banana chips into the batter. This adds 0.575g net carbs per serving, taking it out of the range for Atkins 20 and keto, although it is still in the range for low carb and Atkins 40 or 100.
