KETO CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
MAN. These cookies are good.
I originally made keto chocolate chip cookies a few years back (you can find the recipe here) and those were GREAT.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”

Fudgey and soft in the middle with a little crunch throughout due to the addition of chocolate-chips, pecans and coconut.

These scones are inspired by a certain French bakery I used to work at. We baked bacon cheddar onion scones off daily and they were alway one of my favourites. This low-carb version is so close to the original, it’s hard to believe they are healthy! Anyways..I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Guys I feel like I made history today.
If you are someone who eats low-carb then you will know what I mean when I say trying to find bread replacement options is NOT EASY.
A lot of keto bread recipes I’ve tried in the past have been huge flops(literally, I’ve seen them deflate before my eyes..LOL). BUT THIS ONE…oh this one is so different.
It’s soft, fluffy, actually tastes GOOD and works as a replacement for so many things! Burger buns, naan bread with dip, cheese bread, pizza crust, you name it!
Did I mention it only takes 2 minutes to prepare and 5-6minutes to bake?
Some Ingredients I’d like to Highlight:
- 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.
A perfect grab-and-go low-carb snack for when you are craving something sweet! These are VERY filling!

MCT oil has recently taken off in the keto world of dieting. It’s a supplement that not many know about before stumbling upon keto groups and forums.. So why is it that MCT oil is so pertinent in the keto community? What makes it so special? Here’s what I’ve come to conclude..

I had this burger the other night at the strangest place…the movie theatre! YUP. I ate a delicious burger while watching the newest 50 Shades release. We were in the VIP section where they take your order, have heated seats and chairs that are basically lazy-boys. I don’t think I can ever go back to regular movie theatres guys..
BUT that’s beside the point. This burger was delicious! It had goat cheese, avocado and a bruschetta topping. The kitchen staff were wonderful in accommodating my bun-less request and the burger came out looking beautiful!
After eating it, I was positive I would have to re-make it at home considering how delicious it was and it really is a nice light alternative from eating foods heavy in cream and cheese.
This post is less like a burger recipe and more like a topping recipe, lol. But it was so good I had to share. I bought the burgers frozen (I used these) but you can make your own fresh, maybe even use some greek spices and stuff them with goat cheese…hmmm future recipe idea I think!
Anyways, here’s how to put together this delicious burger:
-Beef Burger Patty (Homemade, store-bought, your choice!)
-1-1 1/2oz thick slice of fresh goat cheese
-1/2 a small avocado(about 40-50g) sliced thinly
- 1/2 a roma tomato chopped into small pieces
- 1 tbsp(7-10g) grated fresh parmesan
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp basil
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- salt/pepper to taste
- Optional: Green or red onion
- Mix all bruschetta ingredients together in a small bowl and refrigerate for at least 1/2 an hour to blend flavours.
- Cook burger to your desired liking.
- Place small pieces of romaine on a place to create a bed for the burger.
- Immediately top the burger with the goat cheese, avocado slices and then the bruschetta.
- Consume with a fork and knife. Simple as that!
