Keto Cheese Buns

These are finger licking good! Whether you like ’em thin and crispy or thick like a toasted bun, this low carb recipe has you covered. If you want them thin, simply put the mix on parchment paper in the desired shape and let the heat do the rest. If you want them thick like a bun or bagel simply put the mix in a contained cooking dish to allow them to rise and puff up. A muffin top pan or a donut pan works great!

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. For the top and bottom bun I used Trader Joe’s everything seasoning, or use the mini-recipe below to make your own out of whatever goodies you have in your spice cabinet. Sprinkle the seasoning on the buns before baking so it toasts up nicely and sticks to the mix.

What you need

2 cups mozzarella shredded

1 cup parmesan shredded

2 eggs

1 Tsp onion powder

1Tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

Everything seasoning

1 Tbsp white sesame seeds

1 Tbsp black sesame seeds

1 Tbsp poppy seeds

1 Tbsp dried minced onion

 

Donut pan works great for bagels!



Keto Vanilla Cake

There are so many possibilities using this keto cake recipe as a base for delicious lower-carb, grain-free desserts! Whether it’s shortcake, cupcakes or layer cake, this is now my go-to for any kind of vanilla cake recipe!

I try to limit how much almond flour goes into a our treats, knowing that too much is bad for nutrient absorption. As much as possible I try to incorporate coconut flour which is much better for the digestion. I have played around enough with the mixture of almond flour and coconut flour to know that they both compliment each other when used together, and they create a finished cake that doesn’t have the overpowering flavor of either of these flours alone. And unlike traditional cakes, it’s moisty deliciousness just gets better in the fridge with time!

If you want to try our this vanilla cake recipe, the vanilla berry cake recipe below makes for a treat when fresh berries are in season!

Cake Ingredients

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter (melted)

1/2 cup yogurt (plain grass fed)

1/2 cup water

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp vanilla

1/2 cup Lakanto Monkfruit

1 cup Almond Flour Blanched

1/4 cup Organic Coconut Flour

Directions

Pre-heat oven 350 F. Bakes for 20-25 minutes.

In a medium size bowl mix wet ingredients with a hand held mixer. Then add the dry ingredients and blend together. This batter will fit perfectly into two 8 inch pie pans. This cake will rise up nicely so if you want it all in one pan, make sure to use a taller cake pan and don’t fill it to the rim. You will want to let this cake cool and firm up fully before removing from pan. It will help to put it in the fridge for a couple of hours before removing from the pan.

A whole day later and look how beautiful. The taste is even better then it looks.

Whipped Cream Ingredients

2 cups heavy cream

1 tbsp vanilla

1/4 cup Lakanto Monkfruit 2:1 Powder Sugar Substitute

2 tbsp cream cheese

Directions

Whip the heavy cream with vanilla. After a minute or two, add the sweetener and cream cheese. Continuing whipping until firm. The cream cheese helps this whip hold shape so there is no need to worry about soggy cake a day later. If you keep it refrigerated, it will last 3-4 days.

 

 

 

Keto Fat Bread

 

Keto Fat Bread

This is the best keto bread for sandwiches, cupcakes, muffins, danishes and anything that you enjoy as bread! There is absolutely no flours in this recipe and that makes it my all time favorite. The fact that it has the best mouth feel and taste is just a bonus. I found this recipe while watching a documentary called "The Magic Pill." If you haven't seen it yet, it's one I encourage you find on NetFlix! You can use this recipe as a base for any and all breads/baked goods. It seems to brown and rise up nicely. Add sweeteners to make delicious desserts... 1/2 cup Lakanto Monkfruit  is a great start for cupcakes, pound cake or a bundt cake.

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • 4 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 cup raw macadamia nuts
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • A dash of salt

Instructions

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. You will need a food processor for this recipe. 
  • Start by blending the shredded coconut in a Food Processor until it is smooth like butter. It will take about ten minutes. If it looks dry something went wrong.
  • Next add the macadamia nuts to the food processor and continue blending. Once the mixture looks smooth add in one egg at a time giving each egg time to blend in. 
  •  Finish by adding in the remaining ingredients and process until combined.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until the top starts to brown slightly, then let cool for 5-10 minutes before taking out of baking pan.
  •  I use the my smallest bread pan (roughly 8x4 inches), which is slightly smaller than a traditional loaf size but still solves those sandwich cravings!

Best Low Carb Bread

This one-bowl keto bread recipe is so easy and quick! There are also no gums in this recipe which is important to me because of the harmful effects they can have on your gut. This low carb bread turned out wonderfully and my kids loved it!

Pre-heat oven to 350F

What you need

6 Eggs

6 tbsp Sour Cream

5 tbsp Butter

1.5 tbsp Coconut Oil

1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

1.5 cup Almond Flour Blanched

1/2 cup Coconut Flour

3 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 Pinch of Salt

Directions

Mix all the wet ingredients then add in the dry and simply blend with a hand mixer. The batter will look very thick. I topped mine with parmesan cheese, or try something else creative, or just go naked! You can add spices to this recipe to complement your main course, or if you’re thinking more about dessert, you can add sweetener and cinnamon to make a tasty treat. Have fun with this!

If you use only almond flour, the loaf will burn unless you lower the temperature and increase the baking time. We try to keep the amount of almond flour we consume at a lower level. Too much almond flour interferes with nutrient absorption, that’s why this recipe has a mix of coconut and almond flours as a base. Besides its nutritional benefit, we love the taste the coconut flour adds!

But you can also do too much of a good thing. If you make this recipe with only coconut flour the result would be a coconut brick, not a tasty loaf.

Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes

 

 

 

 

Chocolate Keto Donuts

 

What You Need

4 Eggs

9 tbsp Sour cream

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup  Sweetener Lakanto Monkfruit 1:1 Sugar Substitute (Golden)

1 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 cup  Coconut Flour

1 tsp Baking powder

1 tsp Baking soda

3 tsp Beef gelatin (grass fed)

1 tbsp Coco powder

Directions

Mix up the wet ingredients and in a separate bowl mix up the dry. Combine wet and dry, mixing well. Spoon mixture into your donut pan and bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes.

This recipe will make about 8-10 donuts depending how much you fill the pan. Try to not fill the pan all the way. These donuts will rise up beautifully so put slightly less batter then you think you need. This batter is thick yet airy and that is what you want.

Want the chocolate glaze?! Just add 6-8 tbsp butter melted and about 4 oz Lily’s chocolate chips and mix until smooth and pour over as little or as much as you would like.:) Have some chocolate left over? Pour it over your choice of nuts and you have a delicious snack to have for later!

 

 

 

Easy Keto Pancakes

This is a must-make recipe. This is the best keto pancake recipe and will be a family favorite!

What you will need

4 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit 1:1 Sugar Substitute (Golden)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

4 eggs

4 oz cream cheese

1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions

Combine wet ingredients, mix well then add in your dry ingredients and whip it up! Your batter will thicken up. I like to use only a teaspoon of gee or coconut oil in the pan for cooking pancakes. I have learned the more oil or butter you use, the more your pancakes will soak up the oil while it cooks. You’ll want to cook on a lower heat then you would normally because keto pancakes tend to take longer to cook in the middle and can burn on the outside if the heat is to high.

This recipe will also make the best keto waffles! If you’re using a waffle maker, let it cook a minute or two longer then normal. This is the fastest and most efficient way to make pancakes for when you’re in that rush. No waffle maker? Do it the crepe way, pour a little batter and tilt the pan around in a circle to let the batter spread out evenly.

Don’t forget to pig out keto style!

The Missing Ingredient for Amazing Keto Bread

Amazing Keto Bread

If you're like me, you came to the keto world with a terrible carb addiction and every meal was bread. Sandwich bread, pizza crust, or even just my terrible tempting nemesis... Toast. Like you I'm sure, I tried every keto-friendly bread recipe I could find. So many of these look like fluffy loaves of bread, but they all we're missing something in either the taste or texture departments, sometimes both. Or worse, their main constituent ingredient was whipped eggs, and the result was basically an omelette loaf. 
The good news after trying so many recipes, I found one recipe that was almost the one... It was just missing a final ingredient to give it everything you need for mouth watering keto french toast, sandwiches and so much more. It's become a staple part of our keto diet here and I know when you give it a try you'll find baking in your oven regularly too! The magic ingredient is sour cream. It gives your bread a smooth texture, kicks the taste up a notch in complexity and keeps the texture from being crumbly. The whole loaf of bread comes out to 12 grams of carbohydrates, that's lower than 1 slice of store bought bread. 
That's how you eat your french toast and lose weight too!

Notes

My bread pan was to big 9x5x3 but it still came out great so don't worry how big your pan is.

I wanted to note that in this recipe I used blanched almonds.

Pictures below are to show what it looks like to use a smaller bread pan and I used the same recipe!

 

 

 

Low Carb Syrup

This low carb syrup is on the low glycemic index, keto approved and taste amazing! All you need is two ingredients. If you want it more sweet then just add powdered sweetener. The glycemic index for vita fiber is at 35 and 1 teaspoon of the vita fiber is only 1 net carb (0 sugars). Compared to natural unrefined honey which is any where from 35-45 or higher on the glycemic index depending on what those bees ate. That’s not even mentioning the net carbs which is 7 net carbs (sugar and or fructose) per teaspoon!

I’m not trying to make honey out to be the bad guy here. Honey has lot’s of health benefits too just not any that contribute to healthy insulin levels.

1 Cup VitaFiber

1 Tbsp Organic Pure Maple

1 Tsp Lakanto Monkfruit (Optional)

Mix it up and enjoy smothering your pancakes/french toast in a healthy prebiotic, sweet and yummy way. This recipe I got from Dr. Berg…. I love him!

Keto Coffee Cake

Coffee cake has always been a favorite of mine. I’ve had so much fun making it keto friendly. I have tried two other coffee cake recipes and I found that it was good but it was not coffee cake. What I want in coffee cake is subtle but sweet and moist yet with a crumble top. I like the crumble top and bread like feel that goes perfect with a cup of joe or hot tea. Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below. Thank you and hope you love it as much as I do!
