How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

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



  • 0 2/3 cup Almond Meal, from whole almonds
  • 30 grams Whey Protein Concentrate (30g=1/3 cup)
  • 0 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 0 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 0 1/4 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 0 1/2 cup Butter, salted or unsalted
  • 0 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener, Brown
  • 0 1/4 cup Maple Syrup (sugar-free)
  • 4 Tbsp Sour Cream
  • 3 each Egg
  • 1 tablespoon Banana flavor
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 0 1/4 cup pieces or chips Walnuts


  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.
