Keto Key Lime Pound Cake

When I think of pound cake I think of butter and butter and more butter! I know the original pound cake is 1 pound of everything, butter, sugar, flour. This one I have made is not only #keto but also #lowcarb and #gluten free!

The best thing about this cake is that it is just the right amount of sweetness so you can enjoy it as a snack or even a treat with your coffee in the morning! It is all kept keto with a box of Simply Delish Lime Jel!

You will be pleasantly surprised how the Simply Delish Lime Jel adds so much lime flavor to this bread and also lends a moisture to it that helps it keep together and not fall apart!

Adam Bremen, Founder of CanDo – maker of Keto Krisp protein bars says,

 “I was born with Cerebral Palsy and have used an electric wheelchair to move around my entire life. From an early age, my parents instilled in me that life is about what I CAN DO, not what I can’t do.”

“At 42, I was overweight and needed to make a change. I transitioned to a keto-based diet and began exercising daily. I lost 65lbs! During my weight loss journey, I couldn’t find an on-the-go snack that tasted good. So, I created Keto Krisp, the perfect combination of a protein bar with an unrivaled taste and premium nutritional ingredients.”

Low Carb Sausage & Pancake DIppers

You know the little pancake and sausage dippers you would get in the frozen section?

I remember from the 80s, since you know I am an 80s kid, lol. Well this could also be a to-go version of pancakes and sausage together as well if you are not having the nostalgia like me!

These come together in the blender and will be perfect for quick morning on-the-go breakfasts when you need something more than a smoothie or bar…. you need some MEAT and FAT to carry you till lunch! This packs it all into a little muffin size punch!

To reheat, I recommend the oven on 350 for 5-8 minutes. The microwave will make these rubbery….. just a warning!

Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Muffins

So muffins are popular and pie is popular……lets put them together! A handheld, portioned out way to enjoy both!

It is pumpkin season, you know, and I am finding as many ways as possible to use my favorite veggie in new low carb creations!

You have the option to bake as directed, or bake a little longer to firm it up a bit more and get a sturdier crumb that is more muffin like. I of course tried both ways and preferred the shorter bake time so I got the ultra moist crumb that was pie like!


Speaking of pumpkin, have you tried my Pumpkin Pie Spread from my 2nd cookbook “Chaffles, Cast Iron and The Crock” yet?

It comes together quickly and without much effort in your crockpot!! Perfect for spreading on biscuits, pancakes, waffles, or layered with my No Bake Cheesecake in a dish for a pumpkin delight!

Keto Baked French Toast

This is a way to have cake for breakfast and add in some protein with eggs!

It is a 2 part process, but goes quick once you are done with the baking. I recommend an 8 inch cast iron skillet as I used, but if for some reason you do not have one, you can go with a pie pan, glass preferred.

DO NOT FORGET to line your skillet or pie plate with parchment paper. Greasing it simply will not get out the cake after baking. DO NOT SKIP LINING WITH PARCHMENT! Ok, I will quit shouting, lol!

If you love cast iron as much as I do, then you would absolutely LOVE my 2nd cookbook “Chaffles Cast Iron and The Crock” !!
