Keto No-Bake Snowball Bites (“White-Chocolate” Sugar Cookies)

Keto No-Bake Snowball Bites (“White-Chocolate” Sugar Cookies)

IMG_6817.PNGWINTER IS COMING.

I repeat. WINTER IS COMING. Prepare yourself for the endless ELF memes, slow overly cautious drivers, overwhelming pressure of gift shopping and constant Christmas recipe bombardment.

Of course I’m jumping on the trend early so be prepared to be annoyed with multiple holiday and winter-related recipes.

This little recipe is something I whipped up real-quick as I was having a major sugar-cookie craving. IMG_6816.jpg

Actually scratch-that, I was having a sugar craving..let’s not sugar coat it (LOL I’m sorry I’m literally the lamest human being).

Anywho, my other “ball” and “bite” recipes have been taken really well by you guys. It seems you all like to put about as much effort into baking as I do (aka, we all just out here being lazy).

This recipe is perfect for you lazy folks who need food NOW. No-baking required, just throw together, toss in the freezer for a bit and you’re good to go. Snacks for the week! (Or 1 day, I mean let’s be honest if you’re a women and you experience the deadly shark week, these things aren’t lasting more than 5 minutes and if someone attempts to steal one you’re probably going to have to eat them too).

Keto Butter Tarts

keto buttertarts

Keto Butter Tarts 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! Butter Tarts are a classic.

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 buttertarts 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 keto butter tarts ?

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”

KETO NANAIMO CHEESECAKE SQUARES

keto nanaimo

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”

CREAM CHEESE BROWNIE CHEESECAKE (2).png

Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year for several reasons…

  1. I get to dress up and use my creative skills to create make-up looks I’d NEVER wear normally.
  2. I get to bake all sorts of fun and cool looking desserts..
  3. I get to hand out candy (I love seeing all the kids in their costumes!) and…
  4. It’s always right around my birthday! 

So with that in mind, I was inspired to create the PERFECT cake for those people who have October birthdays or for those just looking to bring something delicious and keto-friendly to their next Halloween get-together!  Did I mention it’s also super easy to put together and tastes like fudgey-chocolatey-cheesecake happiness?
