Keto Chocolate Mocha Pie

Keto Chocolate Mocha PieKeto Chocolate Mocha PieKeto Chocolate Mocha Pie. This is another one of those desserts that I find difficult understanding how something so good can be keto but it is. Keto chocolate mocha pie is rich, decadent, fabulous and doesn’t need to be saved for special occasions. Except for baking the crust this a cold pie and keeps well in the fridge but I’m guessing it will not last that long anyway.  Despite how the recipe card looks this is a very, very easy pie to make.

Chocolate Mocha Pie
Print
Crust
  1. 1¾ C Almond Flour
  2. ½ C Ground Pecans
  3. 6 T Just Like Sugar Brown*** (Paleo) Or 9 Drops Liquid Sucralose***
  4. ½ C Melted Butter
Filling
  1. 1 Divine 85% Chocolate Bar
  2. 4 Eggs (Divided)
  3. ⅓ C Hot Water
  4. 1½ t Instant Coffee (More If Stronger Coffee Flavor Is Wanted)
  5. 2 t Vanilla Extract (Divided)
  6. 1½ C Heavy Cream
  7. 12 Drops Liquid Sucralose (Or ½ C Sweetener Divided)
Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Put almond flour into a medium bowl.
  3. In a small processor add pecans and Just Like Sugar Brown and process until pecans are ground.
  4. Add pecan mixture to almond flour stirring well, then mix in melted butter.
  5. Press into an 8” glass pie dish all the way around and to the top just like any regular pie crust.
  6. Blind bake crust 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees and then “tamp down” as it will puff up. Return to oven for about 5 additional minutes or until it starts to turn slightly brown. If it has puffed up again knock it back down. Put on counter to cool completely.
Filling
  1. Finely chop chocolate bar. You don’t want it chunky as your chocolate mixture won’t end up being smooth.
  2. Line up 3 bowls-2 medium and 1 large.
  3. Separate eggs making sure not to get any yolk in the whites. I do try to gently take the chalazae off the yolks as I don't want hard little cooked knots in my mousse.
  4. Put whites into 1 medium bowl and yolks into the large bowl, adding coffee, water, and add 6 drops sucralose or ½ of your sweetener.
  5. On medium low and whisking constantly, cook coffee yolk mixture until pretty hot and very frothy. Don’t worry, the eggs shouldn’t scramble because of the water content but you need it hot enough to eventually melt the chocolate.
  6. When yolk mixture is hot enough remove from heat, add 1 t vanilla, add grated chocolate all at once stirring to cover all chocolate, let it sit a minute or so and whip until all chocolate is thoroughly melted. Allow mixture to cool and it shouldn’t take too long. Chocolate will be very, very thick.
  7. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, first beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Making sure chocolate is cooled, FOLD in egg whites ½ at a time until well incorporated.
  8. In second medium bowl, beat whipping cream. Add vanilla & last 6 drops of sucralose or the other ½ of your sweetener.
  9. FOLD ⅔ of whipped cream into mixture until all is well incorporated and add to pie shell. Cover filling with remaining whipped cream and refrigerate until ready to eat.
  10. 10 Servings
  11. 492 Calories, 9.4g Protein, 46.5g Fat, 9.8g Carbs, 4.3g Fiber, 5.5g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Before filling crust, make sure it is loose in the pie dish. It should not stick but once it's filled it might just a bit and that's not what you want.
  2. Not that this pie takes very long to prepare, but you can always make the crust ahead of time.
  3. If assembled just before service the crust will stay crunchy.
  4. Sorry for the crummy picture but hey, I'm a chef not a photographer and it shows quite well here.
  5. I sprinkled a little espresso powder on the pie---BIG mistake unless you do it just before serving as it immediately started to "melt". Probably best to use cocoa powder instead.

Keto Monkey Bread

Keto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey Bread.  It’s been a whirlwind of recipes since I came up with Keto Rum Caramel Sauce.  and this will probably be the last recipe for more than a couple of reasons but have given you enough to branch out and come up with your own.  I have had this recipe for keto monkey bread on the drawing board for about 5-6 months.  It’s not that I’m not busy because I am, but one would think that with all the other new Carbalose Flour dessert recipes I have done recently, that I should have done this before now.  Every once in a while I have to hit myself in the head and say oops, I coulda had a V-8.  This is one of those times.  My problem was getting the nut mixture in between the little dough balls and of course it really turned out not to be a problem at all.  Several months ago I did a recipe for Rich Rum Sticky Buns and this keto monkey bread uses nearly identical ingredients (a bit more butter) and just put together a little differently.  So stop monkeying around and get to makin.  I have shown the keto monkey bread on a couple of plates but the idea is really to individually pull each ball by hand and eat it.  Incredibly, it is not sticky, yes it is messy, and your kids will love eating it with their fingers.  I personally think about 4 balls is plenty enough as they are filled with so much fat but…that is up to you. Really easy to eat and very easy to overeat because of the oh-so-high fat content.

Monkey Bread

Caramel Topping
  1. ¼ C Butter
  2. ¼ C Heavy Cream
  3. 2 T Sugarfree Maple Syrup***
  4. 1 T Rum
  5. ½ t Vanilla Extract
  6. 6 T Just Like Sugar Brown***
  7. ⅔ C Un-Toasted Pecans (To Be Used Later)
  8. 1 t Butter (To Be Used Later)
Nut Filling
  1. ½ C Pecans
  2. ¼ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  3. 1½ t Cinnamon
  4. 6 T Melted Butter (To Be Used Later)
Dough
  1. 1½ C Carbalose Flour***
  2. 2 T Coconut Flour
  3. 2 T Gluten
  4. ½ t Salt
  5. ⅛ t Guar Gum
  6. ⅛ t Xanthan Gum
  7. 2 T Golden Flaxseed Meal
  8. 2 T Warm Water
  9. 1 Large Beaten Egg
  10. 2 T Heavy Cream
  11. 2 T Refined Coconut Oil (Un-Refined Is OK Too But Will Add What I Consider Too Much Coconut Flavor).
  12. 12 Drops Liquid Sucralose***
  13. ⅓ C Warm Water + More As/If Needed 1 T At A Time
  14. 1½ T Yeast
  15. ½ t Sugar
  16. 1 t Orange Extract (This Is An Important Essential Ingredient)
  17. 1 t Butter (To Grease Bottom Of Pan)
Caramel Topping
  1. This can and should be made a day or two in advance (for time’s sake). Be sure to hide it in the fridge or someone will get into it. Bring to room temperature the day of final assembly.
  2. In a small sauce pan barely, and I mean barely, melt butter, take off heat, add heavy cream, syrup, rum & vanilla.
  3. Begin mixing in Just Like Sugar 2 T at a time until all is incorporated.
  4. Bring to very slow simmer, stirring occasionally and cook for about 15-18 minutes. It will begin to darken and get a little thicker. The idea is to have an overall bit of bubbling for the total cooking period.
  5. The color will start out very light, get darker with cooking, and then lighten again.
  6. Cool to warm.
Nut Filling
  1. Put pecans, cinnamon, and just Like Sugar in small processor and grind until nuts are finely ground. Set aside. This can also be done a day or two ahead of assembly and trust me, it’s easier. I do mine the night before and it only takes a couple of minutes at most to do.
Dough
  1. Put first 6 ingredients in processor.
  2. Add 2 T warm water to flaxseed meal for 10 minutes, add to dry ingredients and pulse to mix.
  3. Bloom yeast with sugar in warm water for 10 minutes.
  4. Add Sucralose, orange extract, and melted coconut oil to top of bloomed yeast.
  5. Beat egg and add cream.
  6. Add egg mixture to bloomed yeast mixture.
  7. Start processor, add liquids, and process for 1-2 minutes or so.
  8. If needed, add more water 1-2 T at a time.
  9. Carbalose flour is not sticky but eggs are so this time your dough might be a little sticky to begin with and as you are cutting and forming dough to put into your pan it will then end up pretty much non-sticky. It's kind of like magic.
  10. Place dough in a small round pan, cover with film and let rise about 15 minutes.
Final Assembly
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Begin bringing caramel sauce to room temperature and when ready, heat slightly until warm and slightly liquified.
  3. As lightly as is possible grease bottom of pan with 1 t butter. Evenly distribute ⅔ C un-toasted pecans (they will get roasty-toasty in the oven). Butter is to hold the pecans in place more than anything else as the monkey bread will slip out with no help after baking.
  4. Invert dough onto countertop (or your trusty Silpat is perfect), cut dough in half and them cut into 24 pieces. Repeat with second half of dough for a total of 48 pieces.
  5. As best you can roll into balls and they DO NOT need to be perfect. (See Picture)
  6. Place 24 dough balls in kind of a zigzag around the bottom and on top of the pecans. Sprinkle with ½ of the nut filling and then drizzle with ½ the melted butter. Repeat with last 24 dough balls, nut filling and butter.
  7. Cover and allow to rise for about 20 minutes.
  8. Place monkey bread in oven for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Invert onto serving plate with the pecans on top.
  10. Allow to cool for 8-10 minutes.
  11. Drizzle warmed caramel topping all over top & down the sides and voilà, it’s ready.

Notes
  1. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol with or without oligosaccharides, food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  2. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose (and have for over 9 years with zero ill effects) as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.

Keto Sticky Toffee Pudding

Keto Sticky Toffee PuddingKeto Sticky Toffee PuddingKeto Sticky Toffee PuddingKeto Sticky Toffee PuddingKeto Sticky Toffee Pudding.  Not sure how this recipe came about but I had been thinking about a sticky toffee pudding cake I used to make for a restaurant I worked in.  I used to tell people who ordered it for the first time that it would be free if…they could guess the sweetening ingredient in it.  I never did have to give a free piece away although I did hear some pretty funny answers.  Now if I had been in England I’d have lost every time as it is a favorite dessert there, on the menu in many a pub, and made with dates-lots and lots of dates.  I have to say it was disgustingly good but oh, the carb counts, they must have been horrendous and I have seen anywhere from between 66g and 80g.  So this is my rendition of a keto sticky toffee pudding and I think you will find it quite easy to make but most of all…you will love it.

All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.

  3. Drizzle over cake while warm.
Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

Notes
  1. This is a very dense, rich dessert and I would suggest you not eat a very large piece to begin with. I personally would (and did) cut it into 12 pieces and if you need more-have another piece. It may take a while but after dinner and a piece of this pudding it will hit you and could make you feel very full.
  2. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners.

Keto Rum Sticky Buns

Keto Rum Sticky BunsKeto Rum Sticky BunsKeto Rum Sticky BunsKeto Rum Sticky BunsKeto Rum Sticky Buns. You know, it has been many years (10 and counting) that I have been making keto~lowcarb foods for myself (and you of course) and many times it just takes the time to actually make and post a recipe.  That is not the case here.  Posting a recipe involves many steps~It is not just making it and until I got the perfect Keto Rum Caramel Sauce that would work for these keto rum sticky buns, I couldn’t make them.  Well, I have that perfect caramel sauce now so it’s katy-bar-the-door and these are spot, spot on.  I posted a recipe for Cinnamon Walnut Rolls in February of 2014 where I talked about rich rum sticky buns so you can see that it has taken me over 5 years to come up with what I call (at least for myself), the perfect keto rum sticky buns and all I can say is they are beyond fabulous.  There are probably infinitely more new desserts I could do with the sauce but when you feel you have reached the top, and this is it for me, I think maybe I should just stop. Please DO NOT be intimidated by the list of ingredients as these buns are really pretty easy to make.

Because they are indeed so rich I am doing the recipe for either 8 or 9 buns.  The caramel sauce is actually a fatbomb with zero carbs so put that in your pipe and smoke it and there are other things you can do with it like make Keto Pecan Pralines, use it as a dip for apples and…anything else that may come to your mind. The recipe for the caramel topping below is exactly ½ the Rum Caramel Sauce and my suggestion would be to make the whole recipe since you already know you can make a ½ recipe of the Pecan Pralines with left over sauce.  Lastly, I would like to say that these are a LOT EASIER than the recipe indicates and once you’ve made these keto rum sticky buns just once, you will understand what I am saying. They are not much more work intensive than any other rolls~they are just better.

For many other Carbalose Flour Recipes please see the All Things Carbalose informational page.

  1. ¼ C Butter
  2. ¼ C Heavy Cream
  3. 2 T Sugarfree Maple Syrup***
  4. 1 T Rum
  5. ½ t Vanilla Extract

  3. 2 T Gluten
  4. ½ t Salt
  5. ⅛ t Guar Gum
  6. ⅛ t Xanthan Gum
  7. 2 T Golden Flaxseed Meal
  8. 2 T Warm Water
  9. 1 Large Beaten Egg (Reserve 1 T)
  10. 2 T Heavy Cream

  14. 1½ T Yeast
  15. ½ t Sugar
  16. 1 t Orange Extract (This Is An Important Essential Ingredient)
Caramel Topping
  1. This can and should be made a day or two in advance (for times sake). Be sure to hide it in the fridge or someone will get into it. Bring to room temperature the day of final assembly.
  2. In a small sauce pan barely, and I mean barely, melt butter, take off heat, add heavy cream, syrup, rum & vanilla.

  5. The color will start out very light, get darker with cooking, and then lighten again.
  6. Cool completely.
  7. Refrigerate if not until the following day. When ready to use bring to room temp.
Nut Filling
  1. Put pecans, cinnamon, and sweetener in small processor and grind until nuts are finely ground. Set aside. This can also be done a day or two ahead of assembly and trust me, it’s easier. I do mine the night before.
Bun Dough
  1. Put first 6 ingredients in processor.

  5. Beat egg, being sure to reserve 1 T and then add cream.
  6. Add egg mixture to bloomed yeast mixture.
  7. Start processor, add liquids, and process for 1-2 minutes or so.
  8. If needed, add more water 1-2 T at a time.
  9. Carbalose flour is not sticky but eggs are so this time your dough might be a little sticky to begin with and as you are forming the rectangle to put into your pan it will then end up pretty much non-sticky. It's kind of like magic.
  10. Since you will be rolling this into a rectangle, place dough in a small bread pan, cover with film and let rise about 10-15 minutes.
Final Assembly
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Begin bringing caramel sauce to room temperature.
  3. As lightly as is possible grease pan with ½ t butter. Evenly distribute ⅔ C un-toasted pecans (they will get roasty-toasty in the oven). Butter is to hold the pecans in place more than anything else as the buns will slip out with no help after baking.
  4. Invert dough onto bench floured countertop (or your trusty Silpat is perfect) and roll about 9” wide (for 8 rolls) or 10” wide (for 9 rolls) wide and about 14”-16" long. I basically cover my Silpat.
  5. Brush reserved egg wash 1” around the perimeter of dough.
  6. Spread ¼ C butter on dough, (if you have a small off-set spatula this works perfectly) this time leaving it about ½” around perimeter. Don’t cover all the egg wash as this is your “glue”.
  7. Sprinkle nut filling evenly on butter and roll making sure the bottom is tightly glued.
  8. Again, if you use a Silpat you will not need any bench flour.
  9. Take log roll off Silpat onto a cutting surface and with seam down, gently slice log into 8 or 9 buns about 1” wide.
  10. Place cut buns evenly in pan over pecans if using an 10"pie dish and for 9 buns put them 3 to a row in 3 rows in an 8"x8" square pan.
  11. Cover and allow to rise for 15-20 minutes.
  12. Place buns in oven for 30 minutes.
  13. Invert onto serving dish and now the pecans will be on top.
  14. Allow to cool for 15-18 minutes.
  15. Dot each bun with about 1 T caramel sauce, allow to melt slightly, spread completely, and they are ready to serve. If you have made and cooled your sauce while the buns are baking, you should be able to just drizzle it all over warm buns.

  3. Nutritionals include all ingredients and I have given them for 8 buns and 9 buns, depending on the size and shape pan (10" round pie dish or an 8"x8" square pan) you may wish to use.
  4. You may have a bit of caramel topping leftover so...you can use it on lowcarb ice cream, throw in more pecans and make a few pralines or um, get out a spoon and have at it.
  5. Now I hear tell that bacon, caramel and pecans are terrific together so if you want to add a few bacon bits to the top of your buns, by all means, do it.
  6. Yes, they freeze beautifully but if you have a family, they won't make it to any freezer.

Keto Pecan Pralines

Keto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan PralinesKeto Pecan Pralines.  This was a long story so if you are interested in reading all of it please see the Rum Caramel Dip Sauce because this is an extension of that recipe.  Thus far, I have not gotten to the original goal of a Sugarfree Rich Rum Sticky Buns recipe…yet. It has been pushed aside until further notice. The original Caramel Dip is zero carb so the only carbs in this are from the pecans which of course only adds more fat too.  You only see 15 pralines on the pan because I only made half a recipe and I, uh, ate one before I got it down to begin freezing.  My last line will be:  Eat keto pecan pralines for health.

Pecan Pralines
Print
Ingredients
  1. ¾ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  2. ½ C Butter
  3. ½ C Heavy Cream
  4. ¼ C Sugarfree Maple Syrup***
  5. 2 T Rum Or Brandy Rum Is Best And Liquor May Be Omitted
  6. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  7. 1½ C Small Chopped Pecans
Instructions
  1. Barely, and I mean barely, melt butter, take off heat, add heavy cream, syrup, rum (brandy) & vanilla.
  2. Begin beating in Just Like Sugar 2 T until all is incorporated.
  3. Bring to very slow simmer, stirring occasionally and cook for about 16-18 minutes. It will begin to darken and get a little thicker.
  4. The color will start out very light, get darker with cooking, and then lighten again after beating it.
  5. It may seem thin but just beat it for 3-4 minutes or so and it is ready to use. It will also thicken a little more as it sits. Remember when you were a kid and your mom made you beat fudge? Well, this is kind of like beating fudge except it does not take as long.
  6. Blend in pecans.
  7. Take about 2 teaspoons of the mix and place then on a film lined pan and when finished put in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
  8. They should easily peel off the film.
  9. Immediately put into a plastic baggie and put back in the freezer until ready to eat.

Rum Caramel Dip Sauce

Rum Caramel Dip SauceRum Caramel Dip SauceRum Caramel Dip SauceRum Caramel Dip Sauce.  The first time I I tried testing this recipe I used Sugar-Free Maple Syrup but I wanted to see if I could make it without the maple syrup and using just water and maple extract. One of the things I love about testing a new recipe is when it comes out the way I think it should.  (And I have had my share of some dandy, expensive epic failures too).  I did try to make it with the water and yes, I failed~miserably~it curdled, you know like a broken sauce so…I had to go back to the sugar-free maple syrup.

Rum Caramel Dip SauceI think if you added pecans you could end up with some terrific Keto Pecan Pralines.  Just add pecans, put onto a papered sheet pan and refrigerate.  In fact when I am finished writing this I am going to just that and as you can see from the above link I have done just that.   I don’t have any idea how I come up with this stuff but I do and I am thankful.  I can’t guarantee results if you use anything other than Just Like Sugar Brown*** and it is the only sweetener I use besides EZ-Sweetz Liquid Sucralose*** and there is virtually no Sucralose in this rum caramel dip sauce. (it’s in the SugarFree Syrup).  These could probably be called a fat bomb as they don’t have any appreciable carbs in them. Of course I needed to taste them and um, they are incredible.  When I began testing this it was to make a new recipe for Rich Rum Sticky Buns. Had two sisters I met on a lowcarb cruise 4 years ago coming to visit from back East and one of them has a sweet tooth but doesn’t like to cook so the Sticky Buns were going to be for her. (So surprise Holly~no sticky buns).  I haven’t gotten that far as I became so enamored with the sauce I just decided to stop and pat myself on the back. I’ll get to those sticky buns…maybe…at some point.  The pralines may look sugared but rest assured. they are as smooth as a baby’s bottom and how could they not be?~they don’t have any sugar in them.  They were frozen in the picture and can be eaten right out of the freezer.  OK, so as of today May 19th, I have now made those Rich Rum Sticky Buns and they are absolutely out of this world good.

Rum Caramel Dip Sauce
Print
Ingredients
  1. ¾ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  2. ½ C Butter
  3. ½ C Heavy Cream
  4. ¼ C Sugarfree Maple Syrup***
  5. 2 T Rum (Or Brandy) Rum Is Best
  6. 1 t Vanilla Extract
Instructions
  1. Barely, and I mean barely, melt butter, take off heat, add heavy cream, syrup, rum (brandy) & vanilla.
  2. Begin beating in Just Like Sugar 2 T at a time until it looks like the 2nd picture.
  3. Bring to very slow simmer, stirring occasionally and cook for about 16-18 minutes. It will begin to darken and get a little thicker.
  4. The color will start out very light, get darker with cooking, and then lighten again after beating it.
  5. Cool completely.
  6. It may seem thin but just beat it for 3-4 minutes or so and it is ready to use. It will also thicken a little more as it sits. Remember when you were a kid and your mom made you beat fudge? Well, this is kind of like beating fudge except it does not take as long.

Notes
  1. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol (with or without oligosaccharides), food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  2. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.
  3. All I did to make those pralines was literally mix in chopped pecans, form, and drop onto a flat surface and freeze them. Yes, they freeze and can be eaten nearly right out of the freezer. If brought to room temperature they will become soft again so eat ‘em up fast.
  4. If you refrigerate it, (not necessary for immediate consumption) it will become more firm because of the butter so bring to room temperate before service and I imagine this will not last long with a family around anyway.
  5. The texture will be smooth as glass and literally melts in your mouth.
  6. Fabulous served with apple slices for a sweet treat after a satisfying keto~lowcarb dinner or ready for that sugar-free ice cream you make every once in a while.
  7. I have the 1968 edition of The Joy Of Cooking and there is a recipe for penuche which I used to make. This Rum Caramel Dip Sauce is reminiscent of that penuche minus the rum.

Keto Crack Pie

Keto Crack PieKeto Crack PieKeto Crack Pie or maybe we should call this Keto Crack Pi. You know, I have so many keto~low carb~diabetic friendly recipes on this site that it is now fun to take some ridiculously high carb dish and ketofy it and this is one of them.  I was watching a series on Netflix called Chef’s Table and two of the (many-30?) chefs highlighted are David Chang & Christina Tosi.  If you want the whole story you will have to watch it on Netflix but I will say the whole series has been an absolute knockout.  Does Keto Crack Pie taste like the famous Momofuko or Milk Bar crack pie?  I don’t know because I have never had it for comparison but as far as keto goes this is good and I mean really good and it takes such a small piece to satisfy any sweet tooth.  From some of the reviews of the Original Milk Bar Crack Pie people say it is ridiculously sweet so I have toned that down but the essence is still there. Before I could even think about trying to make this I had to get coconut milk powder to replace regular milk powder which I wouldn’t use in a million years.  Good heavens, by adding water it’s like drinking a candied broth.  About the only things my Keto Crack Pie have in common with the original are egg yolks, butter, heavy cream, & vanilla extract.

So comparing apples to apples and using their picture for 8 servings these are the nutritional facts per slice:

534 Calories, 4.9g Protein, 32.5g Fat, 68.2g Carbs 1.0g Fiber 57.2g Net Carbs

Mine’s keto and theirs is um…a monstrosity.

I did not do well with dinner the day I made this.  As soon as I had taken the pics I could use, I ate that piece of pie.  It was about 1:30 in the afternoon and the stupid thing was so darned good and beyond my expectations that…I ate another piece and boom~I was a goner.  Had a glass of wine and called myself good to go with…no dinner.

How it looks and tastes:  I hope you can see how it looks. Color is a bit darker that a pumpkin pie. The filling is a very intense brown sugar flavor and not too unlike my Walnut Pecan Tart but maybe “lighter”?  I guess my best description can only be~heavenly.  Oh, did I mention, it’s easy?  Yeah well, it’s easy too. Update:  After having been in the refrigerator a little over 24 hours the pie has become very dense and not too unlike a thick New York Cheesecake.  Still tastes like a seriously rich and fabulous caramelly brown sugar pie.

Low Carb Coffee Laced Chocolate Cake

Low Carb Coffee Laced Chocolate CakeLow Carb Coffee Laced Chocolate CakeLow Carb Coffee Laced Chocolate Cake.  No, not a coffeecake,  a low carb coffee laced chocolate cake with a coffee whipped cream icing.  I made a high carby version of this cake for many years but that all stopped abruptly when 9½ years ago I was handed the diagnosis of diabetes and life was suspended…for about a day.  I am so lucky to have worked in kitchens all over the country and coupled with my (at the time) knowledge of what the Atkins Diet had been back in the 70’s (I lived it) I have been able to pull this website together with over 550 Keto~Paleo~Low Carb~Diabetic Chef’s Recipes.  I have mostly chosen to concentrate on things not related to desserts but this cake is so good and so easy I have decided to post it and yes, I do have other desserts and here are just three:  Pecan Sandy BarsCinnamon Flan, and Butter Pecan Mousse which actually tastes exactly like the ice cream of the same name.

Anyway, I digress.  This is a super easy cake to make assuming you have the ingredients.  I used to make this in round pans with the frosting in between split layers but again, for ease I have put it into a square pan and only frosted the top. You may do it as you wish.

I want to take a minute to remind you that if you are going to do much baking, it is important to use professional pans.  I use the pan sizes listed here and they are one of the best kitchen and baking investments you will ever make. If, you decide to test some of the baked items on this site by making a ½ recipe here is a little trick and um yes, I do it all the time.  Example: If a recipe calls for a 10”x10” Pan which has 100sq” then the half pan would be the 7”x7” at 49sq”

Keto Pecan Maple Brandy Bars

Keto Pecan Maple Brandy BarsKeto Pecan Maple Brandy BarsKeto Pecan Maple Brandy Bars.  I doubt you can truly get good perspective on the size (I did a 12 cut) of these Pecan Maple Brandy Bars but the taste? Holy Moly Batman, to die for.  I am getting sick of ruining my dinners.  Certainly one of the things we as bloggers need to do it taste a new recipe and for some reason, which probably has to do more with my prefrontal cortex, I am unable to wait until after my dinner to try a dessert.  Come on, I am 71 years old and I’m still acting like a child but I do have to say that most times it’s worth it and this was one of the times. A touch of brandy, a touch of maple and ooh la la.  They are enough to make you dance in the streets. Sheesh, I have 60 lowcarb, keto, and paleo dessert recipes on this site and I have had a lot of good high carby desserts in my time but, these keto pecan maple brandy bars have gone to the top of my favorites list.  Oozy, gooey, goodness.

Keto Walnut Pecan Tart

Keto Walnut Pecan TartKeto Walnut Pecan TartKeto Walnut Pecan TartKeto Walnut Pecan Tart.  WOWIE.  It has long been a dream of mine to make this keto walnut pecan tart and for many reasons it has not happened until now.  I lived at an altitude in excess of 10,000 in Colorado that simple would not permit it.  No matter what you did the filling would actually boil out of the shell you know, kind of like; a volcano. I have a cook book that I have had for a gazillion years which has a recipe for the Walnut Pecan Tart which I have made, but not for maybe 28-30 years and for sure not successfully.  My memory is that it was to die for and let’s face it we all have fears and mine was failing to make a recipe LCHF and keto for diabetics that would even work.  Then, I kinda forgot about it until a couple of weeks ago when I made a Basic Pie Crust just to have on hand and take fresh pictures of.  I stuck it in the freezer and then began stewing on how to maybe make that danged keto walnut pecan tart.  I did try to make a low carb pecan pie a couple of years ago using another low carb-keto blogger’s recipe that said to use glycerin and it was a disaster.  The glycerin jacked my blood sugar through the roof and I can assure you, this one does not and if you are diabetic I urge you to always check your blood sugar levels.  I subsequently questioned her about it, she left it up, and then many months later she finally changed the recipe but not before untold 1000’s of people had pinned and made it.  Sheesh.  I now have a sister recipe to this one called Keto Crack Pie  (yes, an homage to the famous Momofuko crack pie in NYC) and it is to die for.  Same crust, no nuts and tastes like a melt-in-your-mouth brown sugar pie.

Keto Pecan Sandy Bars

Keto Pecan Sandy BarsKeto Pecan Sandy BarsKeto Pecan Sandy Bars.  To set the stage:  The day before Christmas I was making a Pie Crust, taking pictures as replacement, and had quite a bit left over so I threw it into a container and then into the freezer.  Several hours later, and realizing how wonderful the pie crust is, it came to me that perhaps with little to no changes I could make kind of a shortbread cookie with it so I hauled it out of the freezer to thaw and proceeded from there and like wow, these are ridiculously good.  I know there are other recipes for pecan cookies but my adage has been and remains that for maximum flavor you need to take advantage of Surface Area and what better way to do this than to grind an ingredient. Now, I do have a Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread Cookies recipe but keto pecan sandy bars don’t have any grains in them so they are totally keto ~ paleo. Oh, and did I mention they have fat in them?  Yeah, lots & lots & lots of fat.

When I was diagnosed with diabetes on September 17, 2010 my first thought was probably the same as most diabetics:  Uh oh, I am never going to be able to again have______fill in the blank and I now realize that is such baloney. Examples: The recipe that eventually launched this site Carbalose BreadButter Pecan Ice Cream, and this recipe for Keto Pecan Sandy Bars.  Gads, I can go to nearly any country in the world and enjoy low carb version of their foods.

So, we all have inspirations from time to time and these keto pecan sandy bars is one of mine.  I am inspired by fabrics and colors and textures hence King Size Quilts and for 40+ years as a chef, I have been inspired by foods and their ingredients.

Pecan Sandy Bars
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2¼ C Almond Flour
  2. 1¼ C Pecans
  3. ½ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  4. 1 T Flaxseed Meal
  5. 1 T Ground Chia Seeds
  6. ¾ C Melted Butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Put almond flour in large bowl.
  3. Add pecans, just like sugar, flaxseed meal, & ground chia seeds in processor and grind all together until pecans are finely done. Add to almond flour and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add melted butter and mix really well.
  5. Spread evenly in 10”x10” baking pan and press well making sure to press the sides and corners.
  6. Taking a knife (or better yet a bench scraper) cut to bottom of pan (scoring) to get either 12 or 16 cuts.
  7. Bake 25-30 minutes until barely beginning to color on top.
  8. Remove from oven, allow to cool 10 minutes. re-cut scores, and cool completely.

  12. 248 Calories, 5.2g Protein, 24.4g Fat, 5.8g Carbs, 3.3g Fiber, 2.5g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Bars should tamp to about ½" thick. If you use a smaller pan than suggested yes, they will be thicker but will need a time & temperature adjustment.
  2. No need to grease pan as they will come out quite easily.
  3. When cooled the bars will be very crunchy and melt in your mouth…just like the original pecan sandies. I didn't try it because these are so good on their own but maybe ½ C of sugar-free desiccated coconut and ¼ C more butter might be pretty tasty too.
  4. I grind lots of chia seeds in my spice grinder and since it never takes much of it, I do a lot at one time and keep them in the freezer for future use. Again going back to surface area and why it is so important.
  5. I hope you can see from the pictures that I made two batches. The first pic was cut into 16 and the pan pic was into 12 pieces which made them squares.

Let’s face it, just about every can of anything available today is not the right size anymore for many traditional recipes.  A can of pumpkin that used to be 16 oz. is now 15 oz. and the next thing you know they will be 14 or 14½ oz.  Certainly the larger cans are even worse.  Instead of doubling 15 oz. they are only…29 oz.  Yikes, what the heck do you do with the leftovers after making a Crustless Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie?  Well, my answer is to make this Keto Butter Pecan Mousse.  It has virtually no carbs and is delicious.

When I was a little girl my favorite ice cream flavor was butter pecan.  I don’t really know that it was my favorite but it was what my dad ate and I wanted to be just like my dad. If the truth be known, and sometimes it is hard to tell it, when I whipped up this little dandy…I forget to throw in the spices and guess what…I didn’t even notice it until I was looking at my handwritten list.  And you what else?  It is absolutely delicious without them and without the spices, but with the Sugar-Free Maple Syrup it actually looks and tastes (at least to me) just like butter pecan ice cream.  If you believe in divine intervention, this is one of those times. So, the spices, put ‘em in or leave ‘em out, no biggie.  From the time I started this until I put into the glass containers was about 20 minutes.

Ingredients
  1. ¾ C Left-Over Pumpkin Purée
  2. 6 Oz Softened Cream Cheese
  3. ¼ C Sour Cream
  4. ¼ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  5. ½ C Heavy Whipping Cream
  6. ¼ t Vanilla Extract
  7. 3 Drops EZSweetz***
  8. ¾ C Toasted Pecans
  9. SugarFree Maple Syrup***
  10. 1 t Cinnamon (Optional)
  11. ¼ t Ground Ginger (Optional)
  12. ⅛ t Ground Cloves (Optional)
  13. ⅛ t Mace Or Nutmeg (Optional)
Instructions
  1. Beat cream cheese, sour cream, and Just Like Sugar Brown until smooth.
  2. Mix in pumpkin purée (and spices if you are using them).
  3. Whip heavy cream, add vanilla extract, and EZSweetz.
  4. Gently blending, add ½ whipped cream into pumpkin mixture until well incorporated. Add second ½ cream.
  5. Spoon into serving glass or bowl until ½ full, drizzle with maple syrup (if using) and top with 1 T nuts.

Notes
  1. This is definitely Not A Holidays Only Dessert. This seriously does taste like butter pecan ice cream and uh, what's wrong with that?
  2. If you opt to add the spices it will taste more like a pumpkin pie mousse…but really good.
  3. Yes, if you decide to only make this mousse you can freeze the remaining pumpkin in an ice cube tray to make it again. If some of the liquid separates, drain it well and proceed.
  4. Tip: If by chance your pumpkin (or sour cream for that matter) is particularly loose or watery this little trick will keep you mousse holding its shape. Take 2 T of cold water and sprinkle ½ t of gelatin over it. Let sit for 5 minutes, put in microwave and pulse 1-2 times for 5 seconds until it turns clear. Beat it into your whipped cream and voilà, it will certainly hold for several days in the fridge. (Like it’s ever gonna last that long).

Low Carb Crustless Cheesecake Pumpkin Pie

Low Carb Crustless Cheesecake Pumpkin PieLow Carb Crustless Cheesecake Pumpkin PieLow Carb Crustless Cheesecake Pumpkin PieLow Carb Crustless Cheesecake Pumpkin PieLow Carb Crustless Cheesecake Pumpkin Pie.  This is the same basic recipe as my Cheesecake Pumpkin Pie…but…without a crust and it is ridiculously easy to make. This will make a 9” pie suitable for 8 people. and topped with whipped cream? Ooh la la. Yes, without a Low Carb Pie Crust you will save a couple of carb grams but, as I said, the great thing about this is that it is so, so easy (when you don’t drop and scramble it)-See Last Pic Above.

So, we all know stuff happened and it happened with the piece of pie on the plate.  I had taken the pic but was not ready to eat the pie so I was putting it in the fridge for later and…boop, boop, boop, it tumbled out of my hand and onto the floor.  We have the five-second rule in this house and more time if needed, and I did.  I picked it up and it was such a mess I had to put it on a larger plate and the last pic is what I eventually ate.  Taste?  Fabulous.  Want an even easier pumpkin recipe?  You might try the Butter Pecan Mousse which is made with the leftover ¾ C of pumpkin purée you will have-and don’t know what to do with.

It is a rather sad set of circumstances that I even did this recipe.  Two days before Thanksgiving a friend of mine was asking for an easy low carb recipe for pumpkin pie for a mutual (diabetic) friend of ours and I really didn’t have an answer for her as the key word was “easy”.  Of course I know the woman she was asking for and first off, you have to have the right products to make even a rudimentary pie and I didn’t have the answer until I came up with this.  I know she does not have Just Like Sugar*** but I could easily enough suggest erythritol and she would be good to go.  There are reasons I do not use erythritol but certainly in the case of a big time diabetic I would suggest it.  So this low carb crustless cheesecake pumpkin pie is for Libby (no relation to Libby Pumpkin Purée)

Low Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut Brownies

Low Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut Brownies. I have, over the last eight years, tried more than several “supposed” low carb “moist brownies” only to be sadly disappointed one more time.  A while ago I posted a Tahini Almond Butter Walnut Balls cookie recipe using this exact same batter and the cookies, if not over done, were like fudge in the center. Thinking if the cookies were so fudgy what if I tried the same batter for brownies.  Did it work…Oh yeah, it sure did. The only other brownie recipe you will find on this site are Mocha Zucchini Brownies-Mocha Ganache but the reason these brownies might be so much better is that it is a dump & mix recipe and there are not many of them unless you do some kind of boxed mix. (Ugh)  This was just the first time I tried making these but the next time (if there is one) I am going to put the coffee ganache on them instead of the plain ole ganache I made.  I hope you can tell from the picture above how seriously moist these look because they are as stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth as any other really good brownie and I think the secret is all the oils in almond butter and tahini, I mean, come on. I believe these low carb tahini almond butter walnut brownies are absolutely the best.

I did make a batch of mocha brownies so I added a couple more pics.  Notice the nooks & crannies after baking which are filled with the ganache and I also allowed the ganache to drip over the edges which in my opinion keeps these moist brownies even more so.

Tahini Almond Butter Walnut Brownies
Print
Brownies
  1. ½ C Almond Butter
  2. ½ C Tahini
  3. 2 Eggs
  4. 2 T Cocoa Powder
  5. 2 T Peanut Flour
  6. 2 T Water
  7. 1 T Melted Butter
  8. ⅔ C Just Like Sugar
  9. 2 t Vanilla
  10. 1 t Baking Soda
  11. ½ C Chopped Walnuts
Ganache
  1. ½ C 40% Heavy Cream
  2. ⅓ C Good Chocolate Bar Cut Into Small Pieces.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Minus the walnuts dump everything else into a mixing bowl and thoroughly combine with an electric mixer.
  3. Fold in nuts.
  4. This batter is so thick you will need to push it into a paper lined 8x8 pan with a couple of fingers.
  5. Bake 12-13 minutes and no longer. You can’t tell that they are done but better a bit under-done than a bit over-done if you want them to be fudgy.
Ganache
  1. Heat heavy cream to simmer and keep your eyes on it-you don't want to boil it or you will have a huge mess on your hands.
  2. I put my chocolate into the microwave on med-low for 20 sec, stir, and repeat until it is just beginning to melt.
  3. Add hot heavy cream to chocolate and stir constantly until all chocolate is melted and incorporated.
  4. Let brownies cool just a bit, cover & spread with ganache and cool in the refrigrator until ganache is set.
  5. Carefully lift brownies out of pan, cut & serve. You're in for a treat.
  6. 12 Servings
  7. 233 Calories, 6.9g Protein, 21.7g Fat, 7.1g Carbs, 3.5g Fiber, 3.6g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. I used Endangered Species 88% chocolate bar in my ganache.
  2. Notice that the fat content is 195 of the 233 calories. That's 84% Fat.
  3. If you want mocha brownies add ½ t instant coffee to mix and then add 1 t to ganache. I also added 2 drops EZSweetz into ganache with the coffee.
  4. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol with or without oligosaccharides, food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  5. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.

Low Carb Cinnamon Walnut Roll Crêpes

Low Carb Cinnamon Walnut Roll CrepesLow Carb Cinnamon Walnut Roll Crêpes. If you can make Carbalose Flour Cinnamon Walnut Rolls why can’t you put the same tastes into a crepe?  Well you can.  I just love that every little bite looks like a cinnamon walnut roll.  Again, very easy and fast to make and you will need a recipe of Flaxseed Meal Crêpes.

 

It is always fun to come up with something new and this was no exception but the bottom line question is always; will they taste good.  I’m glad you asked and well yes, they do and…they are a lot easier than the walnut rolls, and I mean a lot.

Cinnamon Walnut Roll Crêpes
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 Recipe Flaxseed Meal Crepes
  2. 1½ C Small Chopped Walnuts (Pecans Work Just As Well)(Save A Little Nut Dust For Garnish)
  3. 2 t Cinnamon
  4. ¾ C Just Like Sugar Baking*** 18 Drops Liquid Sucralose*** Or Your Own Favorite Sweetener
  5. 12 Oz Softened Cream Cheese (Divided )
  6. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  7. ¼ C Heavy Cream + More If Needed To Make A Thin Drizzle
Instructions
  1. Add nuts and cinnamon to a small processor and chop until relatively small. (See Picture). You don’t want to grind it just a fine chop. If you overdo it, don’t worry and the final product would probably look about the same. Reserve 2 T.
  2. Beat cream cheese, Just Like Sugar*** or 12 Drops Liquid Sucralose*** or your favorite sweetener, and vanilla.
  3. Mix in heavy cream and reserve ¼ C.
  4. Lay out crepes, smear with thin layer of the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Top with 2 T nut mixture and roll crepe.
  6. Add enough heavy cream (or water) to thin remaining ¼ C cream cheese mixture and drizzle onto crepes.
  7. Sprinkle with remaining 2 T nuts.
  8. 12 Servings
  9. 330 Calories, 8.0g Protein, 37.4g Fat, 5.3g Carbs, 3.0g Fiber, 2.3g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. I got so excited to try these that I didn’t get enough heavy cream as a thinning agent in the drizzle so I just kind of frosted them but for you? It should be thin enough to drizzle so if you need more heavy cream by all means use it.
  2. Hope you can see the size of the nut grind. You don’t want nut dust just very small and I have a mini processor that has a chop speed which I pulse with until I get what I want.
  3. If you only have Just Like Sugar Brown*** it works quite well in place of the Baking*** but will color the cream cheese without much color delineation between the layers of the crepes.
  4. Nutritionals include crepes.

Low Carb Strawberry Orange Crêpes

Low Carb Strawberry Orange CrêpesLow Carb Strawberry Orange Crêpes.  You’ll not see the orange in these but you sure as heck will be able to taste it.  I love crêpes and in fact I am going to try to post maybe 18-20 recipes for them.  With the advent of my Zero Carb Flaxseed Meal Crêpes I can now have crêpes any which way but loose-and actually…loose too.  They can be savory as well as sweetened and yes, I like them both ways.  It’s always easier to start with the sweet stuff because it is what grabs peoples attention first but there really aren’t that many of them as most are savory and begin to think Enchiladas.  You know, I have to eat the recipes I test and I have to say, not only are these low carb strawberry orange crêpes easy to eat, they are also easy to make.

Instructions

Keto Cinnamon Flan

Low Carb Cinnamon FlanLow Carb Cinnamon FlanLow Carb Cinnamon FlanLow Carb Cinnamon FlanKeto Cinnamon Flan. I had a really hard time naming this concoction but finally came up with the word “Flan” because it has a sugar-free syrup served with it which is a little reminiscent of a real flan. Doesn’t really matter what you call it, it is delicious.  I can already think of a couple variations and one might be with raspberries and a couple of drops of almond extract as the two flavors go so well together.  Very, very easy to make.  Keto cinnamon flan be eaten as breakfast or dinner, which I did with a sausage patty and small salad or just as a fabulous keto low carb dessert.  Anyway you cut it, it’s good, it’s easy and…your kids will love it.

I have started using Ceylon “True” Cinnamon and what a difference it makes.  I will be using the rest of the small bag and have purchased a one lb. bag which should last well beyond me and I am thinking of sharing it with someone I already have in mind.  Ceylon Cinnamon is kind of a taste altering experience if you have never had it, and I personally would never go back.  It is available on Amazon (not my favorite place to shop) as well as other places.  There is no mistaking it for regular cinnamon as it is MUCH lighter in color with a more subtle flavor. Recipes I have already used it in are the Carbalose Cinnamon Walnut Rolls but hey, I just got the stuff so give me a little time.

  2. Slowly add melted butter and mix until smooth, scraping as necessary.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat eggs then slowly add to cream cheese, scraping bowl several times, and making sure there are NO lumps.
  4. Begin heating oven to 375°.
  5. Grease 8”x8” glass baking dish with 2 t butter and put into oven. You want the butter just beginning to brown and the dish hot. Watch it closely or it will blacken and burn.
  6. Pour into heated 8”x8” baking pan and bake for 22-24 minutes. It will not happen immediately but IF your batter was at room temperature it should puff up like a balloon like Yorkshire Pudding only---it might not collapse.
  7. Your finished product should have the color and texture of a firm flan.

Notes
  1. Nutritionals include all ingredients listed.
  2. I'll update if it freezes well if, I can get some in the freezer.
  3. Just Like Sugar tabletop would be fine instead of the Brown. Just a slightly different flavor and it will not turn your flan that soft brown color.

Low Carb Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread Cookies

Low Carb Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread CookiesLow Carb Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread CookiesLow Carb Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread CookiesLow Carb Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread CookiesLow Carb Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread Cookies. As I nearly always have duck fat in my refrigerator for sautéing and frying foods, I thought this recipe might be a natural to put on the sight.  I know most of you might not have duck fat but it is usually available in your grocery store or…you can do it the way I do and save your fat when you cook a duck.  I can usually get about 2 cups of fat per duck which of course makes the fat pretty much free-cool huh?  The really nice thing is there is no sugar in these cookies and as I have used Just Like Sugar, EZSweetz and Carbalose flour for many years, I am very confident in them. Best of all…they also have no nut flours or coconut in them so they are nicely crunchy from the ground chia seeds and flax seed meal. If you can get your hands on a little duck fat these are very, very easy to make.  1947, I just love the bin# on the chia seeds-it’s the year I was born.

Duck Fat Shortbread Cookies
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 C Carbalose Flour***
  2. ⅓ C Butter Softened Plus A Bit More For Baking Dish (About ½ t Only On The Bottom)
  3. ⅓ C Cold Rendered Duck Fat (Needs To Be Cold As Duck Fat Is Liquid At Room Temperature)
  4. ½ C Just Like Sugar Baking
  5. 1 Beaten Egg
  6. 6 Drops EZSweetz Liquid Sucralose***
  7. ½ T Ground Chia Seeds
  8. ½ T Flaxseed Meal
Instructions
  1. Add chia seeds, flax seed meal and EZSweetz to beaten egg and mix well. The chia dust will look like pepper-not to worry and it does not show in the finished product.
  2. In a medium bowl add butter, duck fat, and Just Like Sugar mix slowly at first, until the Just Like Sugar is incorporated and then beat it until it lightens in color and gets fluffier.
  3. Beat in egg mixture until well incorporated.
  4. On low, add the flour slowly until mixed and dough just comes together.
  5. Spread dough evenly to about ¼” in prepared 10”x10” baking pan.
  6. Dough may seem a be a little dry (stiff) (it's not) and if it is, sprinkle it evenly into pan, distribute & pat down well with your fingers and with a small glass, "roll" over it completely to make the top smooth.
  7. With a sharp thin knife or a bench scraper (best) if you have one (a filet knife works well for this) cut down to pan every 1” or 9 cuts, turn and cut every 2.50” or 3 cuts for a total of 40 shortbread cookies.
  8. Take a small poker of some kind (wooden skewer works well) and make 2 pokes all the way through to bottom of pan in each shortbread.
  9. Refrigerate for 1 hour, making sure dough is well chilled.
  10. Just before ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°.
  11. Bake 17-18 minutes or until barely browned at the edges.
  12. Cool completely in pan then gently de-pan and enjoy. They are very light and crunchy almost...like a shortbread.
  13. 10 Servings
  14. 188 Calories, 7.5g Protein, 15.7g Fat, 10.5g Carbs, 6.7g Fiber, 3.8g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Make sure your duck fat is cold to begin with or you will watch it melt before your eyes in the bowl.
  2. Perfect with a mid-afternoon cup of tea.

Low Carb Carbalose Pecan Walnut Coffee Cake

Low Carb Carbalose Pecan Walnut Coffee CakeLow Carb Carbalose Pecan Walnut Coffee CakeLow Carb Carbalose Pecan Walnut Coffee Cake. You may wonder why this coffee cake looks so dark and it’s because I used Just Like Sugar Brown for most all the sugar-free sweetener in the cake. The sweetener, when wet, becomes darker than you think it should.  I just particularly like the product and it’s flavor.  If you prefer, you can always use Just Like Sugar which is snow white. Rest assured they taste differently. Anyway…still very easy to make and really good eats.

  6. ¼ C Finely Chopped Walnuts (See Notes)
Cream Cheese Filling
  1. 4 Ounces Softened Cream Cheese
  2. ¼ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  3. ¾ t Vanilla Extract
  4. ½ t Cinnamon
  5. ⅓ C Finely Chopped Pecans
  6. ¼ C Barely Warmed Heavy Cream
The Cake
  1. 2 C Carbalose***
  2. 1½ t Baking Powder
  3. 1½ t Baking Soda
  4. 1 C Softened Butter
  5. 1 C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  6. 4 Drops EZSweetz***
  7. 3 Large Eggs
  8. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  9. 1¼ C Sour Cream
  10. 1 t Butter (For Greasing Pan)
Crumb Topping
  1. Combine all the crumb ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Mix with a fork (or, go on and get your hands into it) until the mixture resembles crumbs. Set aside.
Cream Cheese Swirl
  1. Beat the cream cheese and brown sugar until fluffy.
  2. Mix in the vanilla, cinnamon and gently add the heavy cream. Stir in the pecans. Set aside.
Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter a 10”x10 pan.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, & baking soda. Set aside.
  3. With an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating just until combined after each addition. Mix in the vanilla.
  4. Gradually add flour mixture ⅓ at a time alternating with sour cream and mixing just until combined.
  5. Transfer the batter (it will be thick) to the prepared pan. Top the batter with spoonfuls of the cream cheese filling and using an up and down motion with a knife or better yet, a small offset spatula, to swirl.
  6. Sprinkle the nut topping evenly over the top of the cake.
  7. Bake 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Make sure to check center as sometimes a cake look done but will fall after coming out of the oven and these do not rise too much anyway. They are very dense….and good.
  8. Also to test for doneness look at the edges of your pan and when finishing, the coffee cake will begin to pull away from the pan.

Notes
  1. When I say finely chopped nuts this is what I did. I have a small Cuisinart that runs in reverse to chop instead of grinding, so this process is very easy. Grinding makes it too fine but pulsing when on chopping works well.
  2. I would be careful trying to eat two of these as they are very high in fat. If you do attempt it just, be aware you may feel awfully full unless it is all you eat and...even then...
  3. One of the things I love about low carb baking, and there are many, it that nothing is sticky and these are no different. Looks sticky but…not. Not to the pan and not to you.
  4. If you are feeling particular decadent add a teaspoon of melted butter on top as you serve them.

Keto Ginger Cheesecake Tarts

Low Carb Ginger Cheesecake TartLow Carb Ginger Cheesecake TartLow Carb Ginger Cheesecake TartLow Carb Ginger Cheesecake TartKeto Ginger Cheesecake Tarts.  Not long ago I published a recipe for Giant Ginger Cookies and quickly realized I could probably do a couple more based on the cookies and this is the first one that popped into my mind.  Since the cookie recipe make 15 very large ones, and they are crispy, why not make a kind of graham cracker crumb and use it as the crust base for a cheesecake.  Well, it worked really well and I am here to tell you they are deliciously sinful.  If you do not have the same 4½” tart pans I do then of course a larger pan will work beautifully and just not quite as easy to deal with since the filling only uses 8 oz. cream cheese.  These keto ginger cheesecake tarts are extremely dense and very filling, especially after a dinner.  Nutritionals include the ginger cookies crumb base and you will need a recipe of them to complete the tarts.  Take a good look in the first picture and you can see how dense the crumb is…just like a graham crumb.  Always remember that the longer you can leave it in the refrigerator, within reason, the more dense and thick the cheesecake becomes.  If you do not intend eating them in more than several days, they freeze beautifully.  The tart shells are also really good using anything that goes with the flavor of ginger like maybe a sugar-free ginger cream or whipped cream and raspberries & strawberries. If by some chance you are here and you don’t like ginger, you can always use your favorite low carb cookies for cheesecake or this dandy recipe for a thick creamy New York Cheesecake with the Two Crust Sizes For Most Nearly Any Pie recipe which is nearly identical to graham cracker crust. Yes keto ginger cheesecake tarts can also be made into a larger tart cut into 8 slices.  I just thought the smaller versions were a nice touch, especially for company and portion control.

You may question the use of ground chia seeds and it has to do the the bindability of sugar-free baked goods and it is one of the things that helps and that also includes the flax seed meal.

Ginger Cheesecake Tart
Print
4-4½” Removable Bottom Tart Pans
Crust
  1. 4 Giant Ginger Cookies Ground To Crumbs (Should Get about 1-1¼ C)
  2. ½ T Just Like Sugar Brown
  3. ½ T Flaxseed Meal
  4. ½ T Ground Chia Seeds
  5. ⅓ C Melted Butter
Cheesecake Batter
  1. 8 Oz Cream Cheese
  2. ⅓ C Just Like Sugar Brown
  3. ¼ C Heavy Cream
  4. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  5. 1 Egg
Sour Cream Topping
  1. ½ C Sour Cream
  2. ½ t Vanilla Extract
  3. 1 t Just Like Sugar Brown
Instructions
  1. Mix all crust ingredients and let sit for 10-15 minutes then gently pat ¼ of the crumbs into each tart pan making sure to push up as high as you can to cover the sides the of the pan. The finished tart will pop out very easily if after you fill them carefully with the batter, it is all kept inside the shell. (I could have pushed my cookies filling up into the top of the tart tin a little further).
  2. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes, remove to counter to fill and turn down heat to 300°
  3. Meanwhile with cream cheese at room temperature beat with Just Like Sugar beating until well incorporated & scraping down a couple of times to get it mixed to smooth..
  4. Add vanilla and heavy cream and incorporate, again scraping down well.
  5. Now add egg and on low barely mix into batter until just incorporated and stop scraping to smooth. At this point you don’t want any more beating because it creates bubbles which are a no-no.
  6. Add ¼ of the batter to each shell and bake 23-24 minutes.
  7. Put on cooling rack in for at least an hour until completely, completely cool.
  8. Turn oven to 400°.
  9. Mix all topping ingredients.
  10. If you have a small offset spatula this is a time to use it. If you don’t have one then use the back of a small spoon.
  11. Take ¼ or about 2 T of the topping and put into the center of a cooled tart and spread it only to the very edge, and no more trying not to get it on the crust or pan.
  12. Pop into the oven 6 minutes and again put on cooling rack to cool, cover gently & refrigerate for at least 4 hours and more if possible as the longer they are refrigerated the thicker and more dense they become.
  13. When ready to serve, pop the tart out of the pan and quarter. Don't forget to take the removable bottom off.
  14. 8 Servings

Notes
  1. Don’t worry if you overcook them a bit they will settle down and be just fine.

Low Carb Carbalose Giant Ginger Cookies

Low Carb Carbalose Giant Ginger Cookies. I have often wondered why it seems so difficult to get a crispy low carb cookie and now I know-it is.  This is my first attempt at making cookies with Carbalose flour so I have no basis of comparison but I know this: there is no almond flour and no coconut flour.  Don’t know for sure but this must be some kind of secret.  Anyway, these are delicious & crispy and every once in a while, crispy is good.

I have made and taken new pics on the top and is the way they should look. They say true confessions are good for the soul so here goes another one:  I did not have the right Just Like Sugar for the first pics (at the bottom now).  I had the Baking but not the Granular since I don’t use much of it and there is a difference so…use the right product for the job…but the taste-ooh la la.

Down below in the notes I said I would be testing another recipe using these cookies and it didn’t take me long to come up with these Ginger Cheesecake Tarts

 All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.

Giant Ginger Cookies
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2¼ C Carbalose Flour***
  2. 3 Sticks Butter
  3. ½ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  4. ½ C Just Like Sugar*** +
  5. ⅓ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  6. ¼ C Molasses
  7. 1 Egg
  8. 1 T Dried Ginger
  9. ¾ t Cinnamon
  10. ½ t Dried Clove Powder
  11. ½ t Mace Or Nutmeg
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. With electric mixer begin to slowly cream butter. Add egg, molasses and then then slowly add Just Like Sugar Brown and ½ C Just Like Sugar until well incorporated. Mixture will be thick.
  3. In larger bowl mix all dry ingredients. Add wet to dry and with same mixer mix until completely incorporated. It will take a bit of time but it needs to be done.
  4. Use a 2” ¼ C scoop, make 15-16 2” balls and place evenly on a parchment papered cookie sheet pan. I have a sheet pan that I could fit all 15 cookies on. Generously sieve on ⅓ C Just Like Sugar Brown and using a flat disc (I used my Norpro pounder), or even your fingers, flatten the balls to about ¼".
  5. Cook no more than 10-12 minutes, leaving on sheet about 10 minutes before putting onto cooling racks.
  6. Cookies should be surprisingly nice and crispy.

Notes
  1. Based on the crumb of these cookies I'm going to make a prediction here. I think if you ground them and added enough melted butter, they would make a kick butt base for a cheesecake or anything else you needed a cookie or graham cracker base for. I will be testing this in the future but...you can test it now...if you want.

Low Carb Melba Panna Cotta

Low Carb Melba Panna CottaLow Carb Melba Panna CottaLow Carb Melba Panna CottaLow Carb Melba Panna CottaLow Carb Melba Panna Cotta.  Not quite peach melba but this Melba Panna Cotta is a danged fine facsimile.  One of my all-time favorite desserts used to be peach melba.  I loved it so much that it was even on my restaurant menu so I could have it anytime I wanted it.  Though I have of course not been able to have it for many years, making an almond raspberry panna cotta is as close as I can get.  I also do not eat peaches so that part is out completely.  Although I could probably have ¼ peach for this low carb melba panna cotta, this does not need it.  And I don’t mean I had fresh peaches either.  I used free-stone peaches from a can and spooned the sugary juice on with abandon.  Well that was then and this is now.  I imagine I could use a sugar-free peach syrup of some sort, as it is available, but for the number of times I would ever use it, it would mostly go to waste.  Traditional melba has always been served with a raspberry syrup or coulis and topped with toasted almonds and I’m using raspberries and almond here anyway.  The really nice thing is that if you have never had peach melba you do not have a basis of comparison so all you will do is enjoy this.  If you have a sweetie then you can make it in one larger mold (the second picture is for two) to get close, and share.  Just don’t squabble over who gets the most. All I did was cut the recipe 75% for the two servings.

Normally, in the restaurant, I used some watered down raspberry jam but not here.  We eat whole raspberries so why not just mash up some of them?  In fact all I did was mash them a little before adding the water.  So, if you want a plain Panna Cotta then here ya go because you definitely can do your own thing on a clean slate.

Low Carb Vinegar Pie Custard

Low Carb Vinegar Pie CustardLow Carb Vinegar Pie CustardLow Carb Vinegar Pie Custard. The first time I heard the term Vinegar Pie I just about choked.  Say what pie?  Well, I decided to try making a low carb vinegar pie custard since I don’t eat floured pie crust and would ya believe…it’s delicious, and I mean delicious.  I only made two of them because I was pretty sure I would not like it.  Well, well, well we can all be wrong and…I was.  I did taste it without vanilla and then, since I was testing, I added it at the end.  Wrong, it was much better without it so you won’t see it in the recipe.  If you decide to top it with whipped cream I would suggest leaving out the vanilla.

Apparently there are recipes on the internet for this pie and one story goes, that when you are poor as a church mouse you can make a pie from vinegar and water.  It was also a favorite in boarding houses and we pretty well know that men will eat just about anything.  Of course back then, since most people farmed for a living, they all had butter, sugar & flour. If you had a lemon you could add that and eventually this pie became the forerunner of lemon meringue pie.  Interestingly enough, even without lemon-it tastes quite lemony.  Who’d a thunk it.  Since most people had access to water, vinegar, sugar, butter and flour this pie came out of it and poor or not it is seriously good.  That’s my story & I’m sticking to it.  So I dare you to try this custard and tell me it is not good.  Strange-Yes.  Terrific-Yup.  The best part is that it is nearly zero carb.  The ramekins shown hold ¼ C , same as a traditional round one.

Notes
  1. Very tasty with a dollop of heavy whipped cream (with no vanilla). If you opt for whipped cream what do you do with you egg whites? Why make some crackers of course.
  2. If you whip the egg whites to top it, then preheat oven to 400° and bake for 8-10 minutes. They will need to be served immediately as meringue begins to "weep" very quickly.
  3. As I said above, it has the taste & tang of lemon and if you didn't tell anyone-they wouldn't know.

Low Carb Chocolate Mocha Mousse

Low Carb Chocolate Mocha MousseLow Carb Chocolate Mocha MousseLow Carb Chocolate Mocha Mousse. You can whip up this easy Low Carb Chocolate Mocha Mousse in a snap.  It  tops off any meal for six and leftover?  No problem as it keeps in the fridge for more than several days. (But it won’t).  It only has six ingredients but flavor-wise it packs a pretty strong chocolaty coffee punch.  As the name of the chocolate bar denotes…it’s Divine.  There are recipes that use gelatin to “set” the mousse and it is something I cannot imagine doing.  Yes, on occasion I do use gelatin for things like Panna Cotta but certainly not for this mousse.

Chocolate Mocha Mousse
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 Divine 85% Chocolate Bar
  2. 4 Eggs (Divided)
  3. ⅓ C Hot Water
  4. 1½ t Instant Coffee
  5. 2 t Vanilla Extract (Divided)
  6. 1½ C Heavy Cream
  7. 12 Drops Liquid Sucralose (Or ½ C Sweetener Divided)
Instructions
  1. Grate chocolate bar. You don’t want it chunky as your chocolate mixture won’t end up being smooth.
  2. Line up 3 bowls-2 medium and 1 large.
  3. Separate eggs making sure not to get any yolk in the whites. I do try to gently take the chalazae off the yolks as I don't want hard little cooked knots in my mousse.
  4. Put whites into 1 medium bowl and yolks into the large bowl, adding coffee, water, and add 6 drops sucralose or ½ of your sweetener.
  5. On medium low and whisking constantly, cook coffee yolk mixture until pretty hot. Don’t worry, the eggs shouldn’t scramble because of the water content but you need it hot enough to eventually melt the chocolate.
  6. When yolk mixture is warm enough, add 1 t vanilla, add grated chocolate all at once stirring to cover all chocolate, let it sit a minute or so and mix until all chocolate is melted. Allow mixture to mostly cool and it shouldn’t take too long.
  7. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, first beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Making sure chocolate is cooled, FOLD in egg whites ½ at a time until well incorporated.
  8. In second medium bowl, beat whipping cream. Add vanilla & last 6 drops of sucralose or the other ½ of your sweetener.
  9. Now FOLD in ⅔ of whipped cream into mixture, cover, and refrigerate.
  10. Cover and refrigerate remaining whipped cream.
  11. When ready for service place mousse into small bowl and put a good dollop of whipped cream on it.
  12. 6 Servings
  13. 373 Calories, 5.7g Protein, 33.7g Fat, 5.8g Carbs, 1.5g Fiber, 4.3g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Make sure you beat and fold in egg whites first. After whipping, if not used immediately, they will get watery and begin to break down.
  2. I said it was low carb-not low calorie.
  3. I have tried more than several bars to make this mousse and the Divine bar seems to be the easiest to not only melt but give a great smooth mouth-feel. If you have your own favorite 85% bar then by all means use it.

Low Carb Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter Cake

Low Carb Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter CakeLow Carb Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter CakeLow Carb Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter CakeLow Carb Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter Cake is really a combination of two recipes already on the site. It is ½ a recipe of Peanut Butter Cake/Peanut Butter Icing and ½ a recipe Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate Walnut Balls done with a #100 (very tiny) scoop. For perspective: the plate on the bottom right is 5″ and the scoop is 1⅛”.  The “tiny cookie” part of this recipe equals about 4½ cookies per 1 of the larger balls.  Anyway they are insanely delicious and as you only need 10 small balls to top the cake you should have about 18 leftover to pop in your mouth or…to make those cake pops that seem to be so popular.  As comparison: they are about the size of an old tootsie roll pop.  I happen to have three 7” cake pans that I bought at a restaurant supply store 20 years ago and I used two of them so I could get a little more frosting in the center.  Yeah, the icing is that good.  If you don’t happen to have a #100 scoop then make rounded teaspoonsfuls in your hands. How about the word teaspoonsfuls? (I had to look it up and it still shows as a misspelling).  If you don’t have two 7″ cake pans then use one 8″ round pan. The cake is extremely high fat. (See Nutritionals inside the recipe).  I use Byrd Mill Peanut Flour .

This can be a bit time consuming but can easily be divided into a two-day affair.  1st day make the cookies and the 2nd day make the cake, frosting and decorate it.  One thing you will need to be careful with is eating the cookies before you get the cake made or you will be back to square one.  Good idea to look at both recipes before you begin but this is pretty straight forward.  I have divided the whole recipe into two parts so it is easy to follow.  If you have a family of 5 this will last for two servings each or…it makes for a great dinner party dessert.

Now I know some of you “guys” out there are going to, or might, be a little squeamish while we discuss ball sizes and you are going to have to get over it.  We aren’t talking about men, we are talking cookies here.

Low Carb Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate Walnut Balls

Low Carb Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate Walnut BallsLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate Walnut BallsLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate Walnut BallsThese Low Carb Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate Walnut Balls are simply melt in your mouth to die for.  Yes, mine are muchly altered but I really need to give credit to Kyndra Holley for her original Flourless Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies .  I do not use erythitol for reasons explained here:  Sugar Alcohols (Polyols) And Why I Don’t Use Them but her cookies looked so good I needed to do my own recipe.  I was going to make Kyndra’s recipe subbing and adding several ingredients.  I found I did not have enough almond butter and I always have enough tahini for things like Baba Ganoush, Tahini Dip, and to a lesser extent Maple Pecan Tahini Candy, so what better substitution than tahini.  Do take a good look at Kyndra’s pictures because her cookies in no way resemble mine.  If you read the notes I said I was going to try making a peanut butter cake  with a cream cheese frosting and I have now made it-Um Yum.  Tahini Cookies Atop Peanut Butter Cake.  and I use Byrd Mill Peanut Flour.

I haven’t done many cookies or desserts in a very long while and I think these are so good (not to mention healthy), I am posting them.  They are quite large and at least to me they look just a little like some kind of mocha colored coconut meringue cookie.  When first baked and out of the oven, they have a pleasant crunchy exterior and a fudge-like interior.  As they sit (which shouldn’t be long with any kind of family, let alone a husband) they take on an allover softness with that same fudgy interior.

They are very easy to make as everything is just dumped into a bowl and beaten.  The dough is quite thick and holds the shape you deposit onto your bake pan so if you want a flatter cookie (no don’t do it) you will need to flatten them before putting into the oven and lowering the cooking time by 2-3 minutes if you still want the fudgy center.

I subbed walnuts for the chocolate chips for one reason.  Chocolate chips do not melt anymore.  When I was a little kid, Toll House Cookies were the bee’s knees and when you bit into them, or broke one apart, the chocolate was an ooey gooey experience.  Now there is far less cocoa butter, and they are filled with so many stabilizers and soy lecithin, that they stay tighter than a tick so…if I want a little crunch in my cookie…I’ll just have nuts.

I have always liked using a scoop to portion cookie dough because the end product is always the same so those of you who have scoops the one I used is a #30.  For these particular cookies I also like the rather rugged look of the tops.  If you don’t have scoops don’t despair, just make them into 12 equal 2″ balls.  As you can see in the picture the cookies do get larger.

Notes
  1. If your almond or tahini butters need it, remix the oils into them. I know it sounds strange that the cookies do not spread with as much oil as they have in them but they do not.
  2. If you really think you want flatter cookies then bake them 9 minutes and at the most, 10 minutes.
  3. It just occured to me as I am doing this recipe that if you made you balls smaller you could put them atop a cake as decoration...maybe I will have to try it...one day. I have a terrific recipe for Peanut Butter Cake with a Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and smaller balls of these cookies would be perfect on top. I think I might drizzle a little ganache on them too. You know, like to guild the lily for special company. (or family)

Low Carb Gingerbread Waffles

Low Carb Gingerbread WafflesLow Carb Gingerbread WafflesLow Carb Gingerbread WafflesLow Carb Gingerbread Waffles. So the other day I made  a half recipe of Gingerbread and as you can see from the picture it didn’t turn out so well as I under-cooked it. Well, when life gives you lemons I say make Gingerbread Waffles.  The first thing I did was scoop out the center, drown it in heavy cream and ate it as kind of a gingerbread pudding.  Gads, it was really good.

I’m thinking to myself that maybe, with a few minor alterations to the original recipe, I could make a waffle batter out of it.  Well, well, it worked just beautifully.  A few crunchy toasted nuts, tons of butter, some Sugar-Free Maple Syrup and I have to say these Gingerbread Waffles are terrific.  Just eat for the number of people in your family and freeze the rest for another time.  They are not super crispy since there is no white flour in them but they are quite tender and with the addition of toasted nuts you get that crunch you may be looking for.  I have put this recipe under the Entrées Category and seriously they can be eaten for breakfast and also be used as a dessert with whipped cream.  If you have babies break into 4 pieces, give them a dry one, and let ’em make a mess.

If you don’t care about that deep dark color that you get from molasses you can add a couple more tablespoons of Just Like Sugar Brown, forget the molasses, and subtract 5g carbs which is not an insignificant number.

Ingredients
  1. 4 Eggs
  2. 4 T Melted Butter
  3. ½ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  4. 2 T Heavy Cream
  5. 2 T Sour Cream

  14. ¼ t Powdered Cloves
  15. ¼ t Guar Gum
  16. ¼ t Xanthan Gum
Instructions
  1. Preheat waffle iron to high.
  2. When you are ready to make your first waffle swab the iron with coconut oil.
  3. Beat eggs, then beat in molasses, Just Like Sugar, heavy cream, sour cream and melted butter.
  4. Mix dry ingredients, add wet to dry and blend well.
  5. Let batter rest for a 1-2 minutes.

  9. 296 Calories, 9.5g Protein, 22.9g Fat, 13.0g Carbs 5.4g Fiber, 7.6g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. I added toasted walnuts but pecans are terrific too. You could add low carb fruit but I think the flavor of the waffle might over power any fruit you may use.
  2. If you compare this to an average 6" waffle the carb count is about one third and even less without the molasses.

Low Carb Chocolate Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Low Carb Chocolate Almond Butter Fat BombsLow Carb Chocolate Almond Butter Fat Bombs. A year ago I said I was not going to post any further desserts for a variety of reasons and I do not consider Chocolate Almond Butter Fat Bombs, or any other fat bomb for that matter, a dessert.  Yes, that is the category they are listed under and they do have a bit of sweetness to them but they are so healthy I really discount them as desserts.  You can substitute peanut, macadamia, walnut,  pecan, hazelnut, cashew, tahini, or any other nut butter you wish.  And the part about not putting any other Low Carb Desserts up?  It has gone by the wayside.

Low Carb Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Low Carb Chocolate Brownie CookiesLow Carb Chocolate Brownie Cookies. The recipe for Mocha Zucchini Brownies/Mocha Ganache was just a happy mistake but these chocolate brownie cookies where definitely not. I don’t make many cookie recipes but as I was sitting on the couch last night thinking (about food) it came to me if you made a mistake with the brownies could you make a good brownie cookie on purpose? I got to work first thing in the morning and the answer was a resounding yes.

I’m betting if you made these for your kids (and that includes a kid husband) and left them on the counter?…they would disappear as if by magic.

Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Cookies
  1. 1 C Finely Shredded Zucchini
  2. ¼ C Coconut Flour
  3. ¼ C Cocoa Powder
  4. ¾ C Just Like Sugar Brown©
  5. 1 t Baking Powder
  6. 2 T Melted Butter
  7. 2 T Melted Coconut Oil
  8. 2 Eggs
  9. 1 t Vanilla
  10. 2 T Sour Cream
  11. ¾ C Chopped Walnuts
Ganache
  1. ¼ C Heavy Cream
  2. ¼ C Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Mix coconut flour, cocoa, and baking powder.
  3. Beat eggs, sour cream, coconut oil, and butter.
  4. Beat in Just Like Sugar Brown© & vanilla until well mixed and blend into dry ingredients.
  5. Stir in zucchini & walnuts.
  6. Using a 2 T scoop place 12 dough balls on a Silpat or a parchment lined ½ sheet pan.
  7. Bake 13-14 minutes and immediately remove to wire rack to cool.
Ganache
  1. Heat heavy cream to boil, remove from heat & add chocolate chips. Mix until chocolate is totally incorporated.
  2. (This Would Be The Time To Add Any Additional Flavorings)
  3. Top cooled (frozen*) cookies with ganache.
  4. If by chance you have one of those cheap squeeze bottles (I do) this is the time to use it as the ganache is easily controllable.
  5. 12 Servings
  6. 125 Calories, 3.4g Protein, 10.7g Fat, 3.9g Carbs, 2.0g Fiber, 1.9g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Work quickly. Once you have added the zucchini to the dough it can tend to become watery so do not dilly dally around. Stick in the oven immediately.
  2. Suggestion: If you let your zucchini sit out on the counter for 3-4 days they begin to lose some of their moisture and for this particular recipe it's a good thing as that moisture can make the cookies spread more than they otherwise would. But a little spread or not these are fantastic.
  3. Each brownie cookie is a pretty good size at about 3" in diameter.
  4. If you do not have a fine grater for the zucchini you can process or chop it a bit after grating. The idea is to not have long strands of zucchini.
  5. I freeze* my cookies first so that when I drizzle on the ganache it becomes hard quickly.

Low Carb Raspberry Almond Crêpes

Low Carb Raspberry Almond CrêpesLow Carb Raspberry Almond Crêpes. You know, I had forgotten about this recipe until Jane Barthelemy of Janes Healthy Kitchen fame posted her Strawberry Crêpe Cake.  Though they are totally different from her cake, and I had first served them almost 40 years ago in the restaurant, she did remind me of my altered version which I have now made several times and with different fruits.

I originally used ridiculously high carby, sugary almond paste but not anymore and because it has been so, so long since I have made them I really don’t remember how they tasted.  All I know is that these are very good.  You will need one recipe of the Flaxseed Meal Crêpes and then proceed to the filling.  There are quite a few ways to roll and fold crêpes so you may decide for yourself which way you think is best, they are all easy and here are three ways to fold them.

Raspberry Almond Crêpes

Ingredients
  1. 1 Recipe Flaxseed Meal Crêpes
  2. 8 Oz Softened Cream Cheese
  3. ¼ C Heavy Cream
  4. 6 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  5. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  6. ½ t Almond Extract
  7. 1½ C Fresh Raspberries Divided (Frozen Work As Well)
  8. ¼ C Water
  9. 3 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  10. ¼ t Almond Extract
  11. ¼ C Sliced Almonds
Instructions
  1. Lightly toast sliced almonds.
  2. Mix ¾ C raspberries, water, ¼ t almond extract, & 3 drops Sucralose. This is your coulis drizzle and you can add more water as necessary if wanted.
  3. Beat cream cheese, Sucralose, and remaining vanilla & almond extracts. Add heavy cream and ½ C raspberries & beat until blended.
  4. Lay out crêpes and thinly smear each with cream cheese mixture.
  5. Fold crêpes as wanted, drizzle with coulis, sprinkle with almonds, & garnish with remaining berries.

Notes
  1. Nutritionals include crêpes.
  2. A real coulis is put through a sieve and I don’t do this as it leaves so very little sauce and seriously, there is nothing wrong with eating the seeds.
  3. A diluted sugar-free jam may also be used and saves making your drizzle from scratch. Actually this is what I do as it is far less expensive than using fresh raspberries. If you don’t care about using any fresh raspberries you can use the jam throughout the recipe.
  4. For the picture I did use fresh raspberries throughout.

Low Carb Zabaglione

Low Carb ZabaglioneLow Carb Zabaglione. The Italians call it Zabaglione and the French call it sabayon and me? I just call it fantastic and it couldn’t be much easier to make.  It is traditionally served in a wine goblet, martini glass, parfaits, or souffle cups but of course may be served in any pretty glass or bowl.  Um me?  I will eat it served in just about any container. See Notes for the other many ways to use this sauce.

Zabaglione/Mixed Berries
Print
Ingredients
  1. 5 Egg Yolks
  2. ⅓ C Just Like Sugar***
  3. ¼ C Sweet Marsala
  4. 1 C Heavy Cream Whipped
  5. 1 t Vanilla
  6. 1 C Strawberries
  7. 1 C Raspberries
  8. 1 C Blackberries
Instructions
  1. Put egg yolks, Just Like Sugar, & Marsala into large metal mixing bowl and begin beating.
  2. Put bowl on low heat and continue whipping constantly. In the beginning you will have very large bubbles, then smaller ones.
  3. As it begins to thicken it should pretty much have no bubbles.
  4. Take off heat immediately and continue beating 3-5 minutes until cool enough not to scramble the yolks.
  5. Whip the cream and add vanilla.
  6. Fold whipped cream into slightly thickened sauce making sure to get it blended thoroughly.
  7. OK, now for the assembly and there are several ways to do this. The easiest way is to dump all your fruit into the zabaglione, mix, & serve. To make it a bit fancier you can layer it a glass of some sort and the fanciest way is to layer each individual fruit with sauce over each layer.
  8. 8 Servings
  9. 185 Calories, 2.1g Protein, 15.1g Fat, 5.5g Carbs, 2.2g Fiber, 3.3g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. You may easily substitute Grand Marnier (orange) or Amaretto (almond) for the Marsala.
  2. It is also good served warm and as its own stand alone custard.
  3. Though I have never done it I hear tell this concoction can be frozen and has a texture similar to gelato. No ice cream maker required.
  4. Or how about this-chocolate ganache either mixed or swirled in and frozen? Seems the possibilities are almost endless.
  5. If by chance you have leftover sauce? My advice is...have it again.

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Low Carb Peanut Butter CheesecakeLow Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake With Chocolate Ganache. I know the name of this is long but the recipe is very easy.  I think any cheesecake can be an elegant and easy dessert assuming you plan ahead as cheesecake get better the longer you keep it in the refrigerator. Trust me they don’t last long.

B-52Long ago my husband’s favorite drink was a B-52 which is made with Kahlúa, Baileys Irish Cream & Gran Marnier.  The drink is made in a pony or shot glass using a cherry or the back of a spoon to “layer” each liqueur, heaviest first etc.  When done properly they are a pretty visual.  I digress, but one day I decided to make a B-52 cheesecake for him and it turned out looking like a color-muted version of the drink…and good?…Oh yeah. The idea is to show you that you can make just about any flavor cheesecake you can conger up.  You will need the larger crust recipe from Pie Crusts For Most Any Pie Two Sizes

Pretty simple stuff here and with only 5 ingredients it is one of my easier recipes.  I always have tahini in the pantry because I make Baba Ganoush a lot & it also takes tahini. The reason I love the brand tahini shown is 1.) It is employee owned, 2.) For whatever reason it seems softer and much easier to mix in the little oil that separates. 3.) It is non-gmo project verified & everything else verified-just click on the picture to see them all.  You will need a 15 piece candy mold and Fat Daddio has many, many of them.

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Ganache Tart

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Ganache TartLow Carb Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Ganache Tart. This started out as an experiment so I only made one which I ate all…by…my lonesome. I don’t often eat much dessert and now I am a self-confessed pig.  It was so good I am posting a recipe that will serve 16.  They are deceptively simple and if you aren’t serving 16 people they freeze well for a future treat.  I just happen to have 8-3⅞” tart tins which is why I made them this way and you can certainly use a larger tart tin.  Just be sure you use removable bottomed tins.

You will need 1 smaller crust recipe from Pie Crusts For Most Any Pie/Two Sizes. If you do have mini tart tins they also make a terrific shell for individual Lemon Curd tarts or any other small dessert you may wish to fill a tart shell with.

Low Carb Carrot Zucchini Cake Cream Cheese Frosting

Low Carb Carrot Zucchini Cake Cream Cheese FrostingLow Carb Carrot Zucchini Cake Cream Cheese Frosting. Moist sweet carrot cake is certainly something I remember from childhood (as the girl I had to grate the carrots) but uh, I can’t eat that stuff anymore and this is my low carb version.

Shredded Smedded. Carrots or zucchini? Why not use both? Well, this does that and yes, as far as I am concerned it would not be carrot cake without cream cheese frosting so I pile it on.

If you prefer pecans then substitute them and what the hell you can also mix them. The debate will rage on no matter which you use. I did not grow up in the South and my preference remains walnuts.

Wanna see something kinda sick? Take a look at this recipe from The Eating Well Diabetes Cookbook (2005)  http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/carrot_cake.html What the hell and OMG. Says 43g carbohydrates or 3 carbohydrate servings-whatever that is.  And this is only the dessert?  Are you kidding me?  With direction like this from the ADA we got a long way to go folks and uh yeah, I stole their picture cause they should be ashamed of themselves.

Low Carb Tiramisu Torta

Low Carb Tiramisu TortaLow Carb Tiramisu Torta. With my chefy background I went into the kitchen Sunday with the express intent of making this Tiramisu Torta. It has been on my mind for a while but until I got the crepes posted I couldn’t try the recipe. Tiramisu (the high carby version) had long been a favorite dessert of mine and I have not eaten it in years. There are times in our lives that call for a punt and this tiramisu dessert is one of them. We can’t eat lady fingers and we can’t eat sugar but we can still love tiramisu so…we are punting.  Since tiramisu calls for ladyfingers dipped into coffee we are going to put the coffee into the Flaxseed Meal Crêpes and you will need one recipe of these. This is so spot on and I guarantee you will love it.  The picture is not mine but this is exactly what it looks like. Thanks to Chef Francisco Migoya, professor at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.  When cut, you will see 12 delicately darkened crêpes between beautiful layers of espresso Zabaglione. I’m saying it again here folks, you can do most anything with the basic crêpe recipe.  If you don’t want to go to the trouble of making the torta (and it is very easily assembled) then just stuff your crepes and call it good to go. Not as pretty but just as tasty.  This low carb tiramisu torta is one of the lowest carb desserts on the site.

Tiramisu Torta
Print
Ingredients
  1. 5 Egg Yolks
  2. ⅓ C Just Like Sugar
  3. ¼ C Sweet Marsala
  4. 8 Oz Softened Cream Cheese
  5. ½ C Heavy Cream Whipped
  6. 4 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  7. 1½ t Espresso Powder
  8. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  9. 1 t Sifted Cocoa Powder
Instructions
  1. To your basic Flaxseed Meal Crêpes you are going to add 8 drops of liquid Sucralose and 2 t espresso powder then proceed to make the crêpes.
  2. Beat egg yolks, sugar, & Marsala in medium metal bowl and put over very low heat beating constantly until thickened and nearly double in volume. This is basically a zabaglione. Remove from heat, keep beating until cooled a bit, and add to whipped & softened cream cheese. I use my mixer on low.
  3. Whip heavy cream. Add vanilla, sucralose, and espresso powder and whip a bit more.
  4. Blend whipped cream & cream cheese mixture making sure it is thoroughly combined.
  5. Place first crêpe on a 7"-8” plate. Spread thin layer of mixture to cover crêpe.
  6. Put another crêpe on top & repeat until finished.
  7. If you have enough filling put it around the sides to encase it.
  8. Gently sift cocoa powder over top.
  9. Cover with a large mixing bowl and refrigerate at least 6 hours and overnight is even better as all flavors will mellow.
  10. Nutritionals include crêpes.

Notes
  1. Though this is an extremely low carb dessert I think you will also find it very rich. I suggest you cut this into 10 servings and if you seriously can eat more of it then do so...or...cut it in half and cut half into 5 pieces to see if you think it's enough and if not cut the other half into 4 portions.

Low Carb Flaxseed Meal Crêpes

Low Carb Flaxseed Meal CrêpesLow Carb Flaxseed Meal CrêpesLow Carb Flaxseed Meal CrêpesLow Carb Flaxseed Meal Crêpes. Super easy to make and I try to always have some in the freezer as they thaw relatively quickly.  Just plain, we tear them and use as a scoop instead of bread for Baba Ganoush or Tzatziki and as breakfast pancakes once in a while but one of my favorite ways to use them is filled with cream cheese sweetened with liquid sucralose and pureed strawberries or raspberries. They make an elegant low carb dessert for dinner guests. Raspberry Almond Crêpes

Depending on what you intend to do with these versatile little puppies you can add flavoring extracts to the mix. Examples: 1 t orange extract if making strawberry crepes, or 1 t almond extract if making raspberry crepes. Experiment and come up with your own combos.  Here’s one dessert recipe Tiramisu Torta and here is an appetizer Crab Rangoon Bundles/Asian Drizzle

They can be just as good as a savory crêpe by adding your own herbs & spices, as a stuffed tortilla…for Chicken Enchiladas, or…an egg stuffed breakfast burrito. Seriously, the sky’s the limit.  Here is the latest recipe made with these crêpes Mushroom Ham Cheese Quesadillas

Flaxseed Meal Crêpes
Print
Ingredients
  1. 4 Eggs
  2. 1½ C Warm Water (Only More To Thin If Necessary)
  3. ¾ C Golden Flaxseed Meal
  4. ⅓ C Melted Coconut Oil
Instructions
  1. Beat all ingredients together. Batter should be very thin. (I use my stick blender)
  2. Let batter rest at least 10 minutes (it will thicken slightly) and then add more water if necessary and if you are unable to "swirl" the batter.
  3. Make sure you keep your mixture stirred as you make each crêpe and you may (or may not) need to add a bit of water.
  4. Put an 8" non-stick pan on medium low-medium heat. Put a scant ¼ cup in center of pan and swirl to make a “crêpe”. Cover until dry on top and they may puff a bit because of the egg. I let mine get a little darker brown and curled on the edges. Do not try to turn. When dry, gently slide out of pan onto counter to cool. If they fold a little don't touch them until they are cool-they will unfold. If you have a crêpe pan all the better (I guess) and I do not, but you do need a good non-stick pan. You will know when they are finished as they will loosen and slide out onto your counter. I slide mine out onto a wooden cutting board because they do have coconut oil in them which will get on the counter and then need to be wiped.
  5. 12 Servings
  6. 115 Calories, 3.6g Protein, 10.5g Fat, 2.1g Carbs, 2.0g Fiber, 0.1g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. You may get more or less crêpes per recipe depending on the size of the flat part of the interior. The 8" pan I use has a pretty large flat bottom and that is how I calculated the number of crêpes per recipe. If your pan is smaller you will get more crêpes and if they don't seem large enough then use a 10" pan.
  2. As you are making your crêpes the batter will begin to get thicker so add a bit more water so you can continue to swirl it.
  3. Crêpes are very "tender" when hot so treat them gingerly. Once cooled they are easy to work with.
  4. As you can see these have nearly 0g carbs and are healthy, healthy, healthy as compared to any regular crêpe at 10.8g carbs. I mean seriously-WOW.
  5. If all you have is the darker flaxseed meal not to worry they will be just as good and just as healthy but they will not "look" quite like a crêpe.
  6. For my dinky family I put these 4 at a time in food wrap.
  7. They may look uncooked on the top but you will be filling that anyway and after rolling they look like any other crepe.
  8. Secret: Even with a good pan this is what I do. With the barest amount of coconut oil, I put in on the tip of my index finger and smear it over the bottom and up the sides about ¼". This way you will not lose the first crepe. Each crepe after that is clear sailing and will slide out very easily.

Keto Cranberry Cream Cheese Pie

Keto Cranberry Cream Cheese PieKeto Cranberry Cream Cheese PieKeto Cranberry Cream Cheese Pie is a quick little put together when you have a bit of left-over easy Cranberry Orange Relish. To complete the pie you will also need one small crust recipe from Low Carb Pie Crusts For Most Any Pie Two Sizes which you will also find very easy to make. The beauty of this keto cranberry cream cheese pie, besides its physical beauty, is that it can be made in stages as needed and if you have the space and extra pie dishes you can even freeze the crusts.  I know, I done it multiple times.

As I was making this, I was already thinking of different flavors combinations like an orange strawberry, and maybe an almond raspberry. Those are just off the top of my head and I would bet you can come up with  some of your own concoctions.

  4. Add pecan mixture to almond flour and mix in melted butter.
  5. Blind bake crust 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees and then “tamp down” as it will puff up. Return to oven for about 5-10 additional minutes or until it starts to turn slightly brown. Put on counter to cool.
  6. Mix all ingredients and press into an 8"x1¼” (Small Crust) or 9"x1½ ” (Large Crust) removable bottom cake pans or corresponding sized spring-form pans.
  7. Blind bake crust 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees and then “tamp down” as it will puff up. Return to oven for about 5-10 additional minutes or until it starts to turn slightly brown. If it has puffed up again knock it back down. Put on counter to cool for cold pie.
  8. Proceed for a hot pie.
Notes
  1. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol with or without oligosaccharides, food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  2. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.
  3. If using spring-form pans try to get your crust up the side at least 1" and 1½" if possible.
  4. These crusts can be used for either hot or cold pies.
  5. Absolutely no need to grease pan as crust has so much butter and no sugar in it. The shell will come out slicker than a whistle.
  6. More sweetener may be used without adding any additional nutritional profile but I doubt you will need any more.
  7. If using liquid Sucralose*** add to melted butter before adding to nut flours.

Low Carb Almond Pumpkin Cake Maple Cream Cheese Icing

Low Carb Almond Pumpkin Cake-Maple Cream Cheese IcingLow Carb Almond Pumpkin Cake Maple Cream Cheese Icing. Tis the season for all things pumpkin and this almond pumpkin cake is not just for the holidays.  I found this recipe while listening to a podcast between Jimmy Moore and Melissa Joulwan. Original recipe at: http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2011/11/15/paleo-pumpkin-gingerbread-cake-with-maple-vanilla-frosting/  The recipe sounded terrific except for the maple syrup & honey which would have added far too many carbs and for me that is an absolute no-no. Soooo…I did a little finagling and came up with what I think is a pretty good facsimile. It is deliciously rich, freezes perfectly, and you can eat it year round. The whole recipe using no maple sugar and no honey which saves a whopping 50g carbs or 8.3g-5.6g carbs per piece respectively. Alas, the original recipe was Paleo but my version is not. Close-but no cigar.  It is extremely moist, and has “no” almond flour.  The secret is almond butter.  Crushed pecans or walnut could also be a welcome additional topping.

Thank you Melissa, it is the perfect ending to any meal.

Cake Ingredients
  1. 1 Can Pumpkin Puree
  2. 1½ C Almond Butter
  3. ¼ C Sugar Free Maple Syrup***
  4. ¼ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  5. 8 Drops Liquid Sucralose***
  6. 2 Egg
  7. 2 t Baking Powder
  8. 1 T Vanilla
  9. 2 t Cinnamon
  10. 2 t Ginger
  11. ½ t Nutmeg
  12. ¼ t Clove
Frosting Ingredients
  1. 8 Oz. Cream Cheese
  2. 8 Oz. Butter
  3. 16 Drops Liquid Sucralose
  4. ¼ C Sugar Free Maple Syrup
  5. 1 t Maple Flavoring
  6. 2 t Vanilla
  7. Toasted Crushed Pecans (Optional As Topping)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Very lightly butter bottom of 10”x10” cake pan & then line with parchment.
  3. Mix all cake ingredients and put into pan. One of the great things about baking without sugar is that nothing much sticks.
  4. Bake 30 minutes. You will know when it is done as the top will crack in several places. When it cracks somewhere in the center remove from oven and cool on the counter. Melissa says to cool, cool, cool it and I say cool it and then stick it in the refrigerator. Before refrigeration, loosen the edges and making sure the cake is “free” from the pan, invert it, take off parchment paper, and cover it. If you don’t feel comfortable inverting such a large cake then by all means leave it in the pan and frost only the top. If you opt to just frost the top you will have left-over frosting which you can freeze for later use.
  5. Beat all frosting ingredients, frost the top and sides, add optional pecans and refrigerate again.
  6. Cut into 12 or 16 equal pieces.

Low Carb Brandied Caramel Dip

Low Carb Brandied Caramel DipLow Carb Brandied Caramel DipLow Carb Brandied Caramel Dip

Low Carb Brandied Caramel Dip. I’ve made a lot of caramel sauce in my time (the high carby kind) and I will say that for a low carb Brandied Caramel Dip this is absolutely terrific. There are just probably a million ways to use this stuff and my favorite is a dip with granny smith or honeycrisp apples which is why I put brandy in it. It may also be drizzled on many cakes & desserts. Think Mocha Zucchini Brownies/Mocha Ganache, Panna Cotta, New York Cheesecake, Gooey Sticky Butter Cake, Carbalose Flour Cinnamon Walnut Rolls or low carb vanilla ice cream.  It is super easy to make in about 7-8 minutes.

Ingredients
  1. ½ C + 2 T Heavy Cream
  2. 1 T Brandy
  3. 2 T Butter
  4. 2 t Molasses
  5. 10 Drops Liquid Splenda
  6. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  7. ½ C Vanilla Whey Protein Isolate (I use About Time/Stevia)
  8. 2 T Butter
Instructions
  1. Combine first 5 ingredients, heat to simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat for 2 minutes and beat in vanilla.
  3. Add whey protein and beat until smooth.
  4. Beat in remaining butter 1 T at a time.
  5. Pour into a 1 cup canning jar.
  6. Refrigerate.
  7. 16 Servings
  8. 74 Calories, 1.6g Protein, 7.3g Fat, .5g Carbs, .0g Fiber, .5g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. To serve, core & quarter two apples (your choice) and cut each quarter into three-four wedges, scoop a bit of caramel with each bite and yes, it’s OK to double dip.
  2. For a plain vanilla caramel sauce simply omit the brandy.
  3. If the dip turns out the least bit grainy it is the whey protein powder and you can not really do anything about it. (At least I can't). It is a little grainy to begin with and you are also cooking it when adding into the heavy cream mixture so, sit back and enjoy the flavors of the apples and brandy. It's divine.

Low Carb Gingerbread

Low Carb GingerbreadLow Carb Gingerbread. I’d been thinking about this Gingerbread recipe for a while, finally decided to try it, and success is so sweet.  Over the last 4 years my tastes for sweet stuff has diminished in that it doesn’t take as much for something to taste sweet to me so if you think this needs to be a bit sweeter add a little more.  A dollop of whipped cream and you’re good to go.  Wanna see what happened one time when I under-cooked a recipe of this gingerbread?  Not always, but most of the time, I can make lemonade out of lemons.  I ended up with what are now Gingerbread Waffles with a fabulous gingerbread pudding to boot which only goes to show, don’t be afraid of failure in the kitchen because there can often times be success right around the corner.

Keto Mocha Zucchini Brownies

Keto Mocha Zucchini BrowniesKeto Mocha Zucchini Brownies. Food Mistakes. OK, so everybody likes zucchini cake and there are a million recipes out there and that is what I started out to make. Suddenly things changed…for the way better. Since I like to mess around with my own ingredients, the “cake” turned out very moist & dense, did not raise much, and is seriously a brownie and definitely not cake. I decided to top it with a mocha ganache instead of frosting and good grief they are fabulous.

Notes
  1. It is my opinion that panna cotta begs to be sauced and here are a couple of suggestions.
  2. 1.) Reduce vanilla to 1 t and replace with 1 t almond extract. Make a slurry of raspberries & water, add another ¼ t almond extract, sweeten to taste, and spoon over panna cotta.
  3. 2.) Make a slurry of strawberries & water, add 1 T orange extract, sweeten to taste, and spoon over panna cotta.

Low Carb Blueberry Cobbler

Low Carb Blueberry CobblerLow Carb Blueberry CobblerLow Carb Blueberry CobblerThis Low Carb Blueberry Cobbler recipe is taken (and altered) from my original recipe scratched out in pencil on a torn piece of paper (which I still have).  I used to make (the real deal sugared kind) blueberry cobbler in a full size hotel pan for the restaurant which was probably about 6 qts. or about 32 servings at a time and this is how we served it. Either traditionally with vanilla ice cream or very simply drizzled with heavy cream-customers choice-and yeah some even ask for whipped cream too.  If you don’t have tapioca starch, don’t worry about it. All it does is thicken the berry juices and really-who cares?

I don’t eat ice cream anymore but the drizzled heavy cream (or whipped cream) works for me and it will probably work for you as well.  That little blob on the cobbler?  It’s Crème Fraîche

This actually may be best described as a crisp rather than a cobbler which is what it looks more like. When taken out of the oven and cooled the top is very “crispy”.

How’s this for a bunch of names that can essentially be the same thing:

  • Cobbler
  • Crisp
  • Crumble
  • Betty
  • Slump
  • Grunt
  • Buckle
  • Sonker
  • Pandowdy

Low Carb Orange Kissed Cookies

Low Carb Orange Kissed CookiesLow Carb Orange Kissed Cookies. Who doesn’t like the taste of an orange.  I can no longer use oranges to cook or make anything, and orange juice is not good for you anyway, but I do use a lot of extracts and this little cookie is a good example.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  3. In separate bowl, combine liquid ingredients.
  4. Add to dry ingredients, mix until smooth and let sit for 10 minutes until thickened as in a soft cookie dough.
  5. Mix again and place by the spoonful (I use a scoop for uniformity) onto a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes or until browning begins at the edges. Cookies will spread and be relatively flat.

Notes
  1. I made them large with a #24 (3T) scoop and got exactly 12 cookies and with a #70 scoop (1T) I got exactly 36 so…3 smalls equal 1 large and you are probably less likely to eat 6 smalls than 2 large.

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cake-Peanut Butter Icing

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cake-Peanut Butter IcingLow Carb Peanut Butter Cake-Peanut Butter Icing.  For LCHF followers this is about as good, healthy, and tasty as it gets. Me? I could eat peanut butter all day long…by the spoonful…so I have to be careful.

This is a very dense, moist cake and not too dis-similar from a brownie which I hope you can see from the picture.

Baking PansThis is another reminder that if you are going to bake (anything) it would be a very good idea to have professional baking pans. Magic Line Pans are the best quality available, they come in about every size & shape you would ever need and…they are actually made here in the USA. There is even a complete size set of square pans (6”,7”,8”,9”,10” and 12”) and with these pans you will have what you need (and more) to make the recipes on this site.  Since there are only two of us I often enough make ½ a recipe, use the 6”x6” pan and cut into 8-10 pieces. I think because I promote this set of pans several places on this site they keep selling out of them so if you don’t see the 6 pan combo call 309-747-2125 and they will make one for you.

Low Carb Chocolate Walnut Peanut Butter Fudge

Low Carb Chocolate Walnut Peanut Butter FudgeLow Carb Chocolate Walnut Peanut Butter Fudge. One of the things a diabetic misses (and there are lots of things) is a good creamy fudge. Well, you need wait no longer. This is as good as it gets and you can eat several pieces without any guilt what-so-ever.

About 12-15 years ago I realized fudge was far better made with heavy cream rather than milk and up until the diabetes thing it was the best fudge ever and now this is.  I really can’t tell any difference.

The first time I tried making this I used too much heavy cream (gasp) and we could only eat it with a spoon (another gasp) so I reduced the cream and voila-to die for fudge and how cool is this…you don’t have to beat it forever.
