How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

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



  • 3 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 3 large Egg (Whole)
  • 0 1/4 cup Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 /4 cup Organic High Fiber Coconut Flour
  • 0 1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 0 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 oz Mascarpone
  • 5 Tbsp Xylitol
  • 1 1/4 tsp dry Coffee (Instant Powder)
  • 0 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 0 1/2 fl oz Tap Water


Xylitol is used in combination with sucralose in this recipe to provide a more rounded sweetness. Xylitol usually comes granulated but is better incorporated if it is powdered before use. Please measure first then powder in a blender.

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare a muffin tin with paper or foil cups.
  2. Using an electric mixer blend together the butter and sucralose until light and fluffy; about 2 minutes. Add eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, coconut flour, baking powder and salt. Blend until smooth then fill 6 muffin cups and bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through. Allow to sit for 5 minutes in the tin then place on a cooling rack.
Soaking syrup: combine 2 tsp vanilla, 2 Tbsp xylitol, 1 tsp espresso powder and 1 1/2 Tbsp water. Prick cupcakes with a tooth pick and pour 1 tsp soaking syrup per cupcake over the top.

Mascarpone Frosting:
  1. Beat together the mascarpone cheese, 3 Tbsp xylitol, 1 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp espresso powder until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl whip the heavy creamy until stiff peaks form.
  3. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until combined. Place mixture in a pastry bag fitted with a fancy tip or simply use a plastic sandwich bag with a corner cut off. Pipe the frosting onto the cooled cupcakes. Best if served the same day or they may be refrigerated overnight in an airtight container. Serve at room temperature dusted with cocoa powder and topped with crushed espresso beans if desired.
