These may be my new favourite easy no-bake keto dessert recipe.

But I have to be honest, the “White Chocolate” isn’t actually white chocolate but it’s a blend I came up with last year that’s very similar in taste and colour!

Combined with peanut butter, this white chocolate blend is DELICIOUS. Sweet, salty and crunchy. These little clusters make the perfect after-dinner treat. Continue reading “Keto White Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters”

KETO NANAIMO CHEESECAKE SQUARES

I’m so happy to share these with you guys! They turned out so much better than I expected!

I always had the idea in the back of my mind to create a cheesecake of some sort with the crust and topping of a Nanaimo bar but never got around to it…that is, until I realized I had a bar of cream cheese I really needed to use up!

I am SO GLAD I decided to finally go for it. These are delicious and look awesome when cut into small squares. The filling is slightly different than a standard cheesecake because we use a bit of heavy cream and xanthan gum to give it a Nanaimo bar custard-like texture.

These are honestly so tasty I had to stop myself at 3 pieces..as I’m sure I could have continued. Anyways, I hope you enjoy these keto nanaimo cheesecake squares as much as I did!! Continue reading “Keto Nanaimo Cheesecake Squares”

Well, here I am again with yet another pumpkin recipe…and yet another truffle recipe. I honestly love the ease of not having to bake dessert. No-bake is the WAY TO GO when you are as lazy as I am.

These little things are tasty, not difficult to put together and are a life-savour when it comes to drowning in Halloween treats full of carbs and sugar and other scary ingredients…(see what I did there? 😉 )

They are not overly sweet and are the perfect balance between soft and crunchy with the delicious cheesecake style filling and chocolate-coconut coating on the outside!

I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!  Continue reading “Keto No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles”

GUYS. These Almond Joy Cheesecake Truffles were amazing! So simple to make and they make the perfect dessert, not too big but just the perfect amount of sweetness to fight off any chocolate cravings.

They also store well in the fridge and don’t melt immediately at room temperature which is great! (No mess!)

Some Ingredients I’d Like to Highlight: 

  • Truvia and Splenda -I have now switched over to only using a monkfruit/erythritol blend sweetener in all of my recipes since originally writing this post. I MUCH prefer the taste and affect it has on the body. I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it!
  • Almond Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.

Tools I used:

  • Camera – I get a lot of questions asking what I take my photos with..I typically use my iphone OR this Nikon Camera (It’s honestly amazing!)
  • Nutritional Scale – I’ve used this scale for almost every single recipe on this blog…I’ve had it for over 4 years and it’s still yet to fail me! I only replace the batteries maybe once per year.
