Keto Asian Stir-Fry

Keto Asian Stir-Fry

This stir-fry is a classic in our family! We've made it for years. For our non-keto family members we add some spaghettini noodles towards the end but for those on a keto diet this is already a hardy dish, especially if you choose to add zucchini noodles!

It's simple to prepare ahead of time for lunches or a later dinner.

Serves: ~3-4

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp + 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large chicken breasts, butterflied and chopped into chunks (~400g)
  • 1/2 a large yellow or red pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 a large green pepper, julienned
  • 1 large carrot (or ~6 baby carrots) cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 of a large white onion
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp + 1/2 tsp ginger, more as needed
  • Pepper & salt to taste
  • 3-4 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp chili pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • Optional: Add Zucchini noodles when you add the bean sprouts for an additional texture in the dish.

Directions:

  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of sesame oil and the olive oil.
  3. Add the ginger and your chicken.
  4. Partially cook your chicken then remove it from the pan and set-aside in a bowl.
  5. Add your vegetables and a 1/2 tsp of ginger and sauté, covered until just tender.
  6. Once the vegetables are tender, add your garlic.
  7. Add your chicken back to the pan and cook through.
  8. Once the chicken is cooked, reduce the heat and add your soy sauce, xanthan gum, chili pepper flakes. and bean sprouts.
  9. Stir often and continue to Sauté until the bean sprouts are wilted.
  10. Remove from the heat and serve! Enjoy!

KETO CHOCOLATE MINT COOKIES

Alright guys, here it is…

The first official Holiday / Christmas recipe of the year!

That's right, we are starting early!

Last year I slacked a bit and didn't start baking until half-way through December so I felt like this year, since the blog has grown so much, I needed to work on that and redeem myself, haha.

So without further ado, say hello to my little friends (movie reference.. I'm lame, I know). Anyways, these are my Keto Chocolate Mint Cookies aka Snowball Cookies! Continue reading “Keto Chocolate Mint Cookies (Snowball Cookies)”

Keto Microwave Fudge Brownie for One

Keto Microwave Fudge Brownie for One

Guys, let's be real today. I know I will not win any awards for the best photography skills with this post but honestly, it's not easy to take a photo of something in a bowl, let me tell you. Especially when your Nikon camera of years decides to spontaneously call it quits and all you're left with is your Iphone 7 camera which honestly probably has cocoa powder or something on the lens considering the amount of baking I do around it…but any-who, this recipe I promise tastes better than it looks. It's super simple to make and makes an easy dessert for later. (I typically just make it in the morning and then leave it in the fridge until I'm ready to eat it for dessert in the evening). It's the perfect small fix for any chocolate craving..

Keto Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Keto Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Keto cinnamon sugar donuts

I am honestly so impressed with how SIMPLE these keto cinnamon sugar donuts are to make, yet how perfect they turn out every time!

This recipe is ideal for 1-2 people. These sugar free donuts are not only tasty but they are very filling and packed with protein and fibre to keep you full for hours!

keto cinnamon sugar donuts

Donuts are typically a long process of waiting for the dough to rise, frying them, etc. These thankfully make the process much easier and literally only take 10mins!

Eat them alone or share them with a friend, either way they are the perfect single serve portion size.

Keto Cinnamon Sugar Donut Ingredients:

Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.

Vital Wheat Gluten – If you have questions about why I include this ingredient, I wrote an entire article on what it is and why I use Vital Wheat Gluten on my keto diet! I also included where to buy it, how many carbs it contains..and how to use it in different kinds of baking.

Truvia – I know use a monkfruit/erythritol blend in place of Truvia because I prefer the taste and it's a bit more keto friendly! I use the SoNourished brand and it's great!

Low Carb Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Low Carb Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Low Carb Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Delicious, sweet and soft, these Low Carb Apple Cinnamon Muffins are super simple to make and are a perfect “healthier” dessert option!

These are great for a quick make-ahead breakfast and freeze well.

I've included both a regular gluten-free apple cinnamon muffin version and a low carb apple cinnamon muffin version below so make whichever one best fits your dietary needs!

Low Carb Apple Cinnamon Muffin Ingredients:

  • Truvia – Since I’ve re-made this recipe many times, I’ve switched over to using a monkfruit/erythritol blend instead of truvia. The reason being.. It’s much more keto-friendly in terms of it’s effect on insulin levels and it probably has the closest taste to real sugar! I highly recommend trying it out. I use this blend from SoNourished.
  • Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Blackstrap molasses– I use this as a brown sugar alternative. You can leave this out but it adds really great flavour for minimal carbs!

Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Muffin Tips

  • Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before baking for best results.

Starbucks Inspired Microwave Egg Bites

Starbucks Inspired Microwave Egg Bites

Keto Starbucks Inspired Microwave Egg Bites.

How did I even get here?

Okay guys, let me be honest..

I know ZERO about Starbucks.

I went in yesterday and asked for a medium coffee and had to ask the cashier which size that was in the proper “Starbucks terms”. (Sad I know)

BUT there is one thing I do know about Starbucks and that's that they offer wonderful sous vide egg bites as a new low carb breakfast option!

I had seen them all over Instagram so given the chance and me being someone who eats under 50 NET carbs a day, I was excited to try them at 9g of carbs per serving (2 egg bites).

I chose the bacon and gruyere egg bites option and they were delicious! From that moment I KNEW I'd be re-creating them at home.

Thus, this keto copy cat egg bites recipe was born.

I read the ingredients in the original egg bites and estimated some amounts, then altered them slightly to fit what I had in my kitchen.

I'm also an extremely lazy, I-need-food-now kind of person so I wasn't planning on doing any sous vide-ing of eggs.

But I still wanted that soft velvety texture.

Thus, I chose to use a simple water bath as that was pretty easy to put together.

I then decided to microwave the eggs because who says you need any special equipment to make a delicious breakfast?

AND, GUESS WHAT? It worked!

Granted they are slightly different than the Starbucks egg bites..

..but they are definitely delicious in their own way and look super cute on the breakfast table (because obviously that's a quality you look for in food..lol). 

Pair it with a cup of bullet-proof coffee with homemade whip cream and you have a Starbuck's breakfast fit for any basic keto-er.
