Naniamo Bars are a Canadian classic that I’m happy to promote. They have a soft not overly sweet chocolate base that’s made with cocoa powder, shredded coconut and chopped nuts (usually walnuts or almonds but pecans also work well!) Continue reading “Low Carb Naniamo Bars Recipe”→
Have you ever had those little sausage puff or sausage roll appetizers at parties?
Those perfect little pockets of puff pastry packed with seasoned pork sausage have always been a favourite of mine and these Keto Sausage Rolls are no exception.
They are super tasty! These are exactly what you should serve at a get-together with non-keto friends and family, I think this recipe may just convert them, haha. The pastry is super buttery and flaky and the sausage mixed with the spices bellow is actually my favourite combination even on it’s own! You really can’t go wrong with this recipe.

Flaky Keto Puff Pastry.. can we all just take a moment to breathe this in.
When I started a keto diet, I never thought I’d be eating pastries again. But believe it or not, here we are.
I’ve not only developed an insanely good flaky keto puff pastry using “Vital Wheat Gluten” as the main ingredient…I’ve also created a delicious 100% gluten free keto puff pastry. This way you can choose which version best suits you lifestyle. Continue reading “Flaky Keto Puff Pastry”→
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.
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”→
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..?
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.
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?
