Any suggestions?

Dh's b-day is coming up and I'd love to make something he can actually partake in without feeling terrible afterwards.

Its so challenging, he really can't eat anything sweet, not even fruit. He can't do any flour products there anything I can do??

Well, if he can have nothing sweet, why not go savory? Maybe a spinach, egg, and cheese thing like a quiche or something?

What about a pumpkin pie sweetened with stevia? You could use almond meal for the crust.

This recipe is from The Candida Control Cookbook by Gail Burton.

1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
2 TBSP arrowroot powder
1 TBSP baking powder
6 large eggs
1/2 cup clarified butter
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 TBSP lemon flavoring (alcohol free)
5 TBSP vegetable glycerine

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix flour, arrowroot powder, and baking powder in a large bowl. Separate eggs; beat yolks in another bowl with electric mixer until light. Add butter, lemon juice, flavoring, and glycerine to yolks, mix well and add to flour mixture. Beat until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold into flour mixture. Pour batter into a greased and lightly floured bundt or angel food cake pan. Bake 35-40 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick. When cool, may spread with icing, or cake is delicious plain.
*29 carbohydrates per serving without icing and 30 with icing

Almond and Butter Cream Icing

1/2 cup + 2 TBSP clarified butter, melted
5 TBSP vegetable glycerine
1 egg yolk
2 TBSP fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup sliced or ground almonds

Cream butter with glycerine. Beat in egg yolk and lemon juice; mix until thick. Fold almonds into icing or wait until cake is frosted and sprinkle over top.

I have to admit I haven't actually tried this recipe, but someone gave it to me long ago.
