I have not really had many crepes before in my life. Pancakes, yes, but crepes, no. So when my husband asked for some I had to figure out a low carb version that would work, and this one does!
I had strawberries with mine, but you could easily go with a different berry! Berries are low in carbs and high in fiber so they are a perfect fit for a low carb lifestyle!
Low Carb Crepes
Enjoy crepes again with this quick recipe that comes together easy in your blender! Use cream cheese in place of mascarpone if you cannot find mascarpone. Makes 2 to 3 large crepes @ 1g net carbs each. Add in berries, I used 1/2 cup fresh strawberries at 6g net carbs. Blackberries are less, blueberries are more.
I love any type of muffin and raspberry is one of my favorite kinds! You can of course use blueberries or blackberries as well! This recipe makes about 16-18 muffins. I use silicone liners, or paper liners. I also fill my muffin wells 1/2 to 3/4 full.
What is YOUR type of favorite muffin? Leave a comment below!
Low Carb Raspberry Muffins
Make some with raspberry as listed, or change it up to a different berry, even chocolate chips would work!
Have you ever wanted to have cookies for breakfast? Maybe when you were a kid, but now you can have that for breakfast WITHOUT it being a cookie!
These muffins come together quickly and taste very much like a chocolate chip cookie! The use of coconut flour helps keep these nut free but also balances out the ingredients so it has a moist and tender crumb!
They do keep well in the fridge and are even better when warmed up!
Low Carb Chocolate Chip Muffins
Have your muffins AND chocolate together for breakfast or a small snack!
Makes 12 muffins.
Info per muffin:
You know those donuts you can get at the local bakery that are slathered with the maple icing…….yes, these are what I used as my memory to re-create them into low carb!
It is so close to the real thing that my kids went crazy over them!
First you need to make sure you have some Keto Maple Syrup either made with my recipe HERE, or purchased. AND you also need to make sure you have some Keto Brown Sugar made up with my recipe HERE, or purchased.
You will also need a donut pan, silicone preferred for easy removal from the pan! Non stick may not release in one piece once baked!
Using maple extract will give you the closest possible flavor to what I have created. If you sub maple syrup for the maple extract it may add too much moisture and result in runny glaze and too moist donuts. Following the recipe as stated is how you will get the results I did!
Low Carb Maple Donuts
Now you can enjoy maple glazed donuts again with this re-creation of a carby favorite! The donuts turn out moist and the glaze is perfectly set and keeps up to 5 days! This recipe makes 6 donuts. 1 donut = 8g carb // 4.2g fiber // 3.8g NET carbs --- 6g protein // 23g fat
2largeeggsroom temperature or warmed so it does not coagulate the butter
4tbspketo maple syrupnutritional figures are based on using my homemade keto syrup
2 tbsp keto maple syrup
2 tbsp butter
2 tbspheavy cream
2tbspketo brown sugar
1 tspvanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350F and set your donut pan on a baking sheet so it is ready.
In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda. Whisk well and set aside.
In a large bowl combine wet ingredients: eggs, heavy cream, keto maple syrup, melted butter and vanilla.
While whisking the wet ingredients, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Whisk well until batter is smooth.
Now put all of the batter into a piping bag, or use the corner end of a gallon ziploc bag. Pipe batter evenly into each donut well in your pan. Smack pan on the counter to release any bubbles in batter and to make it even.
Bake 20-25 minutes until it is set and lightly golden.
Let donuts cool in pan for 5 minutes before slowly turning onto a cooling rack with a pan underneath. Make your glaze!
In a small saucepan add all of the glaze ingredients and heat over medium heat while whisking until it is completely smooth and thin.
In a quick motion, drizzle glaze over each donut. It works best to follow the golden circle on the donut so you cover it as evenly as possible. You MUST do this in a swift motion as the glaze will harden and crystallize in the pan before you are able to coat them all if you take too long. If it hardens in the pan before you are able to coat them all, reheat and try again with the remaining amount.
Donuts keep on the counter for 1-2 days. For longer storage keep in fridge up to 5 days.
Not only are these luscious brownies super fudgy but they come together in 1 bowl!!
You CANNOT skip the step of warming up the eggs, or making sure they are room temperature. If you do not, you will get clumpy batter and possibly scrambled eggs!!
Store them in the fridge and if you want MORE chocolate, top with a fudge icing!
Low Carb Fudge Brownies
Not only will you want to eat them all, they come together quickly in 1 bowl! The carb count depends on what chocolate chips you use. The recipe by itsself WITHOUT CHOCOLATE CHIPS is as follows for 1/12 of the recipe: 1.3 g carb/0.7g fiber/1.7g protein/ 11.2g fat
If you have access to a lot of eggs, then coconut flour will be more economical for you in the long run versus other low carb flours!
It absorbs a ton of moisture so the eggs help accomplish that need, plus in any given recipe you will use up to 1/2 cup total versus with the equivalent in almond flour equaling 2-3 cups! This helps me to conserve my low carb baking ingredients when I change it up to use coconut flour only.
So in celebration of coconut flour I have compiled a list of 11 of my own creations using coconut flour! I have broken it up into meal type as well so you can meal plan!
This recipe comes together quickly and puts your cast iron skillet to good use! I thought that peaches were forever off of the table in my low carb lifestyle, but to my happy surprise I found Natures Hollow Low Carb Peach Jam!
I am a “straight-up” gal so when I go to try a new jam or jelly I take a spoon and dig in! If it tastes amazing right from the jar, then it will be amazing in a recipe! This is the main reason why this recipe was created, to showcase the sweet peachy goodness of this amazing low carb jam! It has small pieces, not big chunks and for that I love the texture too!
This recipe in particular is featured in my latest cookbook “Chaffles, Cast Iron and The Crock”. It is only 1 of 86 recipes that make your low carb lifestyle easier to manage and a whole lot tastier than just plain ol’ meat and veggies!
