It’s that time of year..the end of October means bye Halloween, bye fall, bye pumpkin spice…and HELLO CHRISTMAS COOKIES, SNOWMEN, ELVES AND HOT CHOCOLATE.
But with that said, I thought I’d wave one last goodbye to our lovely pumpkin spice season (this is not at all because I had an extra can of pumpkin puree I needed to use up..) So without further ado, here is our last official pumpkin recipe of the 2018 year. I hope you enjoy! Continue reading “Keto Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Muffins”→

What if I told you I made low-carb muffins that are high in protein, high in fibre, contain 0 added sugars and actually taste GOOD? Like not just “okay they are alright for being healthy” kinda good but rather, good as in “wow these are delicious I could eat the whole plate right now…but like I won’t(okay maybe just 2…)”.
This is a super simple recipe that honestly does not take much time to make! It’s the perfect portion size for a small after-dinner treat or a sweet addition to your daily breakfast. They store easily and taste even BETTER the next day! Continue reading “Low-Carb Mini Double Chocolate Muffins”→
1/4 cup(60g) sugar-free chocolate chips (I use Krisda)
*If not using vitafiber syrup, you can try adding an additional 30-60g almond flour and a bit of almond milk or heavy cream, you’ll also need a little more sweetener.
**You can use all of one sweetener to replace the 2. Just take into account the fact that Truvia is 3x sweetener than sugar so you’ll likely need 7-9 tbsp of a typical sweetener that measures like sugar rather than the 3 tbsp called for.
Vitafiber acts like a flour and sugar substitute and helps the muffins to rise slightly better.
Pre-heat your oven to 350*
Spray/grease 2 muffin pans with coconut oil or line with muffin wrappers (I also spray the wrapper with coconut oil to prevent sticking!)
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Stir in your wet ingredients and then fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips (I reserved 1 tbsp(15g) chocolate-chips to decorate the tops), add additional sweetener if needed.
Use a muffin scoop to evenly disperse the batter to make 15 muffins.
Top the muffins with a couple chocolate chips each and place in the oven for 15-18min.
Muffins should be almost set (DO NOT over-bake!). They are meant to be fudgey so after 5-7min remove from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack to set fully. (OR eat one immediately because being impatient is a part of baking).
Store in an air-tight container after muffins have cooled completely. Freeze, store on the counter for a few days or store in the fridge! Enjoy!
Combine all dry ingredients except the reserved flour in a large bowl.
Heat your butter, milk and water in a microwave safe cup for roughly 50s to a minute.
Stir the warm mixture into the dry ingredients along with the egg.
Use a spoon to start forming a dough. Add the extra 1/4 cup almond flour as you go to make it less sticky.
Use your hands to begin kneading the dough.
Knead it for roughly 3-5min (it contains quite a bit of vital wheat gluten so we want to be careful we don’t over-knead or it will become too dense).
Next form the dough into a neat ball and sprinkle the bottom/sides of your bowl with almond flour before placing it back down.
Cover the bowl with a towel and move it to a warm location like an oven that still has a bit of heat in it but is not hot, or use the microwave method (just heat water or nothing particular in it for about a minute or so before placing the dough in to rest).
After and hour, remove the dough from the bowl and place it on an (almond) floured surface.
Roll the dough to be a rectangle roughly 12×9 inches in size (about 1/4 inch thick)(see instructional photo for a better idea-don’t mind the 5-year-old style rolling pin)
Using a spoon, spread the butter gently over the entire surface of the dough then combine your cinnamon and sweeter of choice and sprinkle on top.
Roll the dough, long-side to long-side, being careful not to tear it. Tuck in the ends and use your fingers to press any cracks back together if they do occur.
Next, slice the dough into 7 even pieces and place them, inner-side up, in a butter or coconut oil greased baking dish.
*Cover the rolls and let them rise for another 30-45 minutes in a warm location.
Finally, bake the rolls uncovered at 375* for 15-18min. (I purposely took them out a little early so they wouldn’t over-bake).
Combine your coconut oil and cream cheese in a microwave-safe dish and microwave it for 30 seconds.
Mix in your egg whites, vanilla and sweeter and almond milk until it becomes smooth.
Drizzle or spread on the glaze on each cinnamon roll and then don’t wait for them to cool at all, just tear them straight out of the pan and devour them like a crazy hungry keto monster.
JK. If you want to be normal and not burn your mouth(that definitely didn’t happen to me…..)then wait for the cinnamon rolls to cool before gently removing them from the dish with a knife or spatula (trust me, it will make your life SO much easier).
NOW you can devour them. ENJOY!
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge or freeze until you have another cinnamon roll craving!
