Keto Butter Tarts

Keto Butter Tarts.pngThis is one recipe I’ve had planned for AGES but I’ve just finally got around to making it!

I’m so glad I did! This recipe is a classic (at least butter tarts are a classic, haha).

They’ve always been my Dad’s favourite but for some reason I never really loved them as a kid..

That all changed when I tried one a couple years ago. I hadn’t realized how AMAZING these things taste when find the right one. Some are gooier than others, some have a tougher center with more filling and then there are some that have a thick crust, some that have a thinner, lighter crust…etc.

Butter tarts are very versatile is what I’m trying to say.

That’s why I thought, why not have a keto butter tart ?

The filling doesn’t have to change much and the crust shouldn’t be to hard to re-create….

and thus, these beautiful butter tarts were born.

These make the perfect after-dinner treat and are the ultimate cure to any sweet tooth cravings.. Continue reading “Keto Butter Tarts”

THE BEST KETO CHOCOLATE-CHIP COOKIES.png

MAN. These cookies are good. FullSizeRender 57.jpg

I originally made keto chocolate-chip cookies a few years back (you can find the recipe here) and those were GREAT. But that recipe was more of a crispier cookie that spread more..I hadn’t quite got the texture right yet and was still playing around with the type and ratio of low-carb flour I used.

BUT THESE ONES. I feel like I have finally opened the gates to chocolate heaven. Continue reading “Chewy Keto Chocolate-Chip Cookies”

It’s beautiful double-layer look is created by using coconut oil in both the topping and fudge itself to quickly “set” each layer in the freezer.

This fudge is soft, chewy, melty..with a slightly crunch from the topping and some pecans and chocolate-chips thrown in.. you can’t go wrong. Continue reading “Chocolate Peppermint “Snow” Fudge-Keto”

Notes: 

*You can choose to use unsweetened baker’s chocolate instead of the chocolate-chips mentioned, just be sure to add a bit of extra sweetener to the recipe.

**You can use 1 sweetener for the entire recipe, just take into account that truvia is 3x sweeter than regular sugar so you’ll need 3x the amount for a typical sweetener like erythritol or splenda.

Keto Salted Caramel Cups

Keto Salted Caramel Cups

Salted Caramel Cups.png

I don’t know about you, but anything with “Salted Caramel” in the title immediately draws me in.. same goes for anything with “chocolate” in the title. So when you combine the two in a mini muffin tin… You most-definitely end up with heaven in a cup.

This recipe is super easy!

Each chocolate is high in fibre, low in carbs and down-right delicious.

Here’s how I made them:

Ingredients:

Caramel Layer

Chocolate Layer:

*Alternatively you can try using a very dark chocolate OR unsweetened chocolate melted and sweetened with a sweeter OR combine: 1/4 cup melted Coconut Oil, 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder, 2-3 tbsp sweetener of choice & 1/2 tablespoon Vanilla Extract

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small pot
  2. Bring the pot to a boil, stirring constantly for 3-5min or until sauce starts to thicken slightly.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into a measuring cup.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil and stir until smooth (I just used the microwave, 1:30-2min)
  5. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin with coconut oil and spoon the chocolate mixture evenly into the bottom of each one (DO NOT drag it up the sides, I learned the hard way, lol) (I made 7).
  6. Freeze for 5-10min.
  7. Top the now hardened chocolate mixture with your caramel sauce, evenly dispersing it between all 6 cups.
  8. Sprinkle a small pinch of sea salt on each one. (optional)
  9. Freeze for at least 3 hours or longer. (Longer is ideal so they don’t split apart!)
  10. Pop the cups out with a knife and enjoy!
  11. Store them in the freezer in an air-tight container!

Fried Keto Cookie Dough Ball

Fried Keto Cookie Dough Ball

DSC_0733DSC_0740DSC_0761

I’m not really sure what sparked my interest in frying things ..maybe it was this gigantic container of coconut oil I just purchased. But who knows…

This is the second keto-dough I’ve tried frying(okay actually the third but the 2nd attempt was a complete failure so we don’t need to discuss that, lol).

This dough uses a combination of coconut flour and almond flour where-as my first original dough uses almond flour only.

In all honestly I did prefer the all almond flour dough just slightly more, taste-wise but that’s only because I’m not a huge fan of the coconut flour’s flavour to begin with.

I do have to say though, the coconut flour version may fry a bit better and did seem to be a less crumbly more cookie-like textured dough.

So with that said, I will link the original dough in this post along with the one I made today so you can decide which you prefer (or which you have the correct ingredients for!).

I wasn’t going to post this as a recipe, it was more just me messing around but I really did enjoy the dough and it was SO extremely filling. I think it’s a great sweet-tooth killer that’s actually good for you!

I recommend dipping it in my cream cheese frosting listed below as that was literally the icing on the cake.

I also fried a few small ones with cream cheese inside and then rolled them in cinnamon sugar in another attempt so you definitely can get creative with this recipe.

Ingredients (Serves 3):         

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp vital wheat gluten (optional, helps with texture-use an extra tbsp of almond flour if not using)
  • 1 tbsp splenda
  • 1/2 tbsp truvia

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1/2 tbsp butter, melted

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • pinch of cinnamon(optional)

  • 3 tbsp(45g) mini or regular sugar-free chocolate chips (I use Krisda typically)
  • Coconut oil for frying (roughly 6 cups or enough to just about cover the dough ball) *I bought this container. You can re-use the oil as well.

Optional Cream Cheese Frosting:

Directions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Stir in your beaten egg, melted butter and vanilla until thick dough starts to form,
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Form the dough with your hands, combining the ingredients and forming a ball.
  5. Place the ball in the fridge while you heat your oil on high, in a large frying pan.
  6. Using a thermometer, heat your oil until 375* is reached, then fry your dough (turn down the oil or remove from heat so it does not go into the 400* range when frying).
  7. Remove the dough from the fridge and form it into 3 balls.
  8. Using a large (preferably)round spatula place the dough balls gently into the oil.
  9. Fry for roughly 1-2 minutes (more or less depending on how cooked you want the inside to be).
  10. Rotate it a few times in the oil before removing and setting on a piece of paper towel to drain.
  11. Optional: Combine the frosting ingredients and use as a dip to serve for cookie dough ball with! (SO GOOD). Enjoy!
