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 them as much as I did!! Continue reading “Keto Nanaimo Cheesecake Squares”

Crack Keto Peppermint Melt Away Bark

If you are looking for a perfect after-dinner holiday treat to curb your sweet tooth then look no further. This is not your ordinary peppermint bark. This low-carb version combines coconut oil and cream cheese for a deliciously creamy white layer, while the chocolate layer is made using a technique similar to how you’d make low-carb sweetened condensed milk to create a silky, rich chocolate swirl. Plus the pecans and coconut or whatever else you throw on top is just bonus. 😉 This is one treat even your non-keto family members will be asking for again and again.

I feel like these cookies don’t need much explanation. If you’ve ever seen a tray of Christmas cookies..at least in my family, these are usually ALWAY in the mix. I love the look and taste of these cute cookies. These are honestly probably the BEST keto shortbread cookies I’ve made to date (and let me tell you, I’ve made a lot). They are a little more tedious to put together but they are so worth the effort! (Although, if you are feeling lazy, these also make a great shortbread base to standard cookies as well!)

GUYS. These things are so fun! If any of you remember and enjoyed my initial recipe “No-Bake Lemon Coconut Balls” which became SUPER POPULAR and was re-created by many other bloggers..then you will LOVE these even more! These are like the next-level version. They are even simpler to make and come out more like a chewy candy with a smoother and richer texture. I am obsessed.

Keto Halloween Brownie Cheesecake

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? If you don’t believe me..give it shot for yourself!

  7. Gently smooth your cream cheese mixture over the brownie mixture.
  8. Next drop spoonfuls of the brownie batter on top and swirl into the cream cheese batter(this doesn’t have to be perfect!)
  9. Bake at 350* for roughly 25min or until a toothpick comes out clean and the top layer forms small cracks/is set.
  10. Let cool on a wire rack for 5-10min and then place in the fridge for AT LEAST an hour before slicing and serving.
