Keto Mini Glazed Donut Muffins

They remind me of a very moist cake donut hole, a sort of donut popper!

The hint of spice gives it a distinctive flavor that mimics a donut shops little secret ingredient! I have also included an additional secret ingredient with a box of Simply Delish Natural’s Keto Vanilla Pudding!

I paired mine with a cuppa coffee in my new glass double walled mug with convienient wood spill proof top to keep it warm longer!!

Get a pair of these wonderful and classy mugs here!

You will also need a mini muffin pan as these would possibly take longer as regular muffins. If you do use a regular muffin tin only fill halfway so they do not burn before getting done in the middle!

Keto Chocolate Dipped Cookies with peppermint candies🍭

I had to make something different with this Key Nutrients MCT Cocoa I tried! I came up with this crispy cookie and it did not disappoint!

I was thrilled that it has a nice crumb and slightly chewy texture! It is the right amount of crispy so you can use it as a copycat oreo crumb in any recipe!

I am also overjoyed at the effective way that I am able to get in some healthy MCT oils into my treats with this cocoa powder from Key Nutrients! Not only did it give it a rich flavor but offers healthy fats available for immediate use in the body for energy!

You can also make hot chocolate with it by adding warm milk! It is already sweetened with monkfruit so no need for sweetener! Order some today and make some of these cookies or make hot cocoa or even add to coffee for a quick mocha!

Sticking with ChocZero sugar free chips is best as the others I have tried do not melt as well. It is up to you, but visit the notes below the recipe for links to my favorite brands that I used to get the best results like me.

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.”

Benefits of Coconut Flour

I love baking with coconut flour🥞🍰
.
It is an easy way to stay low carb AND gluten free easily!
.
Coconut is made from 100% dehydrated coconut meat, and it contains no additional ingredients.
.
It is an excellent source of minerals such as copper, magnesium, manganese, and selenium.

Magnesium plays numerous vital roles in the body, especially in muscles!
.
Additionally, copper and selenium are essential minerals that, among other functions, have a primary role in the immune system!

The fiber found in this flour helped reduce triglycerides and the ratio of non-HDL to HDL cholesterol! Get the benefits like oatmeal but LOW CARB!
