Keto Funfetti Birthday Cake

Today we are celebrating reaching 10k on instagram along with 11k e-mail subscribers for MouthwateringMotivation.com! For that reason, I had to go all out and make this extravagant Keto Funfetti Birthday Cake. 

This cake is beautiful! Everyone that’s keto or not strongly approved of it and said it tasted delicious! The Funfetti sprinkles really bring back all of my childhood memories of a boxed Duncan Heinz cake.

This cake may be just slightly healthier seeing as it is gluten free, grain free and there is no sugar added! Continue reading “Keto Funfetti Birthday Cake”

Soft and Gooey Keto Cinnamon Rolls

Soft and Gooey Keto Cinnamon Rolls

I feel like I never learn my lesson with Keto Cinnamon Rolls. 

Seriously. The amount of times I have attempted different versions on this blog is actually appalling. Almond flour keto cinnamon rolls, coconut flour keto cinnamon rolls, protein keto cinnamon rolls…and now “Soft and Gooey Keto Cinnamon Rolls“.

But, with that said, I think the experimentation can be good. Every time I re-make them slightly different, I feel as if we progress to another cinnamon roll level.

The only issue is I can rarely get a good photo of cinnamon rolls.

I’m not sure if this is just my lack of photography skills in this area but does anyone else find cinnamon rolls to always look like a big gooey blob in every photo? LOL.

I can tell you that I took 124 photos just to get the few semi-decent keto cinnamon roll photos you see here.

Anyways, all this should really be beside the point.

You came here to see make some soft and gooey ket cinnamon rolls and I’m going to tell you how to do that…using yeast. Yup we are upping our game from baked cinnamon rolls.

These ones puff up a lot in the oven so don’t be deceived by the small pieces you cut them into. They bake nice and golden brown on the outside but remain soft and ooey-gooey on the inside. Exactly what you want when baking a proper cinnamon roll. Continue reading “Soft and Gooey Keto Cinnamon Rolls”

The Best Keto Cheesecake Ever
. Man, this post has been a LONGGGG time coming.

I’ve wanted to share my love for this recipe since I made it last thanksgiving.

My ENTIRE family, I’m talking grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, everyone that wasn’t even keto to begin with LOVED this cake and even went back for seconds!

I was worried it might not be fully cooked or the people may notice it wasn’t sweetened with sugar or they may not like the almond flour crust…

But when I tasted it myself..all my worries disappeared. This thing was one of the BEST keto cheesecakes I’ve ever tasted. Maybe one of the best cheesecakes in I’ve ever tasted.

The Best Keto Cinnamon Rolls

OK. Let’s get this straight. YES I have posted Keto Cinnamon Rolls in the past… have they been the BEST? No.

Have they been decent enough to share? Well, yes.

But have they truly filled the void when I’ve been craving gooey, soft cinnamon rolls with delicious cream cheese frosting..?

Not quite. 

That’s why I am here with fantastic news. I’VE FINALLY FIGURED OUT KETO CINNAMON ROLLS.

As I know your time is valuable, so I’ve done all the frustrating trial and error for you. 

I’m made almond flour cinnamon rolls, protein cinnamon rolls, oat fibre cinnamon rolls, cinnamon rolls with baking powder alone, cinnamon rolls with a combination of almond and coconut flour, disaster cinnamon rolls that didn’t even make it to the blog…you name it I’ve tried it. 

I just could NOT get cinnamon rolls right and it was driving me INSANE. 

I’m serious guys. When I can’t get a recipe idea of mine to work, I just keep trying and trying and trying because I re-fuse to fail or settle for “meh, it’s okay”. 

So when I had a sudden cinnamon roll epiphany at 2:00am while watching pointless youtube videos, I knew I had to get to work straight away. (No joke, I stayed up writing my recipe over and over and didn’t sleep, lol). 

My epiphany was the fact that cinnamon rolls are meant to be LIGHT and FLUFFY and GOOEY. 

Not crumbly, dry and tough. 

I needed yeast to make proper cinnamon rolls. Continue reading “The Best Keto Cinnamon Rolls”

Keto Almond Joy Cookies

KETO ALMOND JOY COOKIES

Were you a fan of Almond Joy bars as a kid? I mean with that delicious chocolate coating and the chewy sweet coconut centre…

Well, I sure was. I’ve always been a fan of anything almond and coconut.. actually one of my favourite low-carb protein bars is the Almond Coconut Built Bar (see my previous post for a full review of Built Bars!)

I’ve always loved almond croissants, coconut macaroons, coconut milk, almond milk… you name it.

That’s why when I considered the fact that ALMOND and COCONUT FLOUR are two of the most popular ingredients in keto baking… WHY HADN’T I THOUGHT OF AN ALMOND JOY COOKIE YET?

That’s where the idea for these babies came from. Continue reading “Keto Almond Joy Cookies”

KETO PIZZA BITES

Let’s get this straight…

Pizza Bites are the epitome of party food, alright.

Every Christmas Eve my family eats mini appetizers for dinner and pizza bites are always included.

They’re cheesy, bready (I’m making this a word) and super addicting.

They aren’t very complicated…they’re just crust and toppings so I thought, why couldn’t you make a keto version?

And lo and behold YOU CAN! Continue reading “Keto Pizza Bites”

I did Keto Christmas Chocolates…Now we’re doing Keto Christmas Bark.

I’m not sure if it’s just me but I love Christmas just for the excuse that I get to use excessive amounts of sprinkles and food colouring.

This bark is no exception.

It’s easy to make…more importantly FUN to make because you can get as creative as you want with the toppings.

It’s a perfect recipe to make with kids and a great way to get everyone in the holiday spirit! Continue reading “Keto Christmas Bark”
