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



  • 1 1/2 cup Almond Meal Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 1 individual packet Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 3 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 2 large Egg (Whole)
  • 2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 4 tbsp Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 4 tbsp Sugar Free Apricot Preserves
  • 2 cup, sliced Strawberries
  • 1 oz Almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a sheet pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the almond flour, baking powder and 1 packet (or about 1 tsp) sugar substitute until mixed. Add the cold butter and pulse until it becomes crumbly. Add the eggs and 3 tablespoons of cream and pulse until the mixture is thoroughly combined, about 30 seconds.
  3. Drop about 2 tablespoons mixture onto the sheet pan making 12 rounded biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes until tops crack and are golden on the edges. Allow to cool.  Place almonds on another sheet pan and place in oven for 5-7 minutes to toast, set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl beat the remaining cream, 2 tablespoons sugar substitute and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract until soft peaks form, about 3 to 4 minutes. Place one-third of the whipped cream in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Whisk 2 tablespoons sugar substitute and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract into cream cheese. With a rubber spatula, gently fold cream cheese into the remaining two-thirds of the whipped cream until well combined. Set aside.
  6. Cut biscuits in half. Spread each with about 1 teaspoon jam, then cut into 1-inch pieces.
To assemble:
  1. Spread one-third of the biscuit pieces on the bottom of a 2-quart glass dessert dish.
  2. Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over biscuit pieces and top with 1 cup strawberries. Repeat.
  3. Scatter remaining biscuit pieces over last layer of berries. Cover with reserved whipped cream. Top with remaining berries and scatter the toasted almonds on top. Chill for 1 hour for flavors to blend.
