Keto Gooey Buttercake

Its origin started in St.Louis,MO, but honestly I had not heard of it till a few days ago!

It reminds me of a very moist and chewy pound cake!

You have to watch it so you do not overcook it!!

You need to pull it out of the oven when its lightly brown and toothpick tests slightly gooey. If you do not, then you risk a dry and crumbly cake. It will still be tasty, but not gooey like we want!

Keto Gooey Buttercake

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter; melted and cooled

2 lg eggs

1 1/2 cup almond flour

1/3 cup erithrytol (monk fruit) or granulated sweetener

1/4 tsp vanilla

1 Tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

4 oz (1/2 block) cream cheese; softened

1 1/2 cup powdered erithrytol

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8×8 pan, set aside.

In a medium bowl mix 1 egg and melted butter with a hand mixer. Add in almond flour, granulated sweetener, vanilla, baking powder and salt. Spread batter into the bottom of your 8×8 pan.

Set aside. In same mixing bowl add cream cheese, remaining 1 egg and powdered erithrytol. Spread onto 1st layer in pan.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Toothpick tested with some gooey batter left on it.

Once it has reached this point, cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp powdered erithrytol if desired.

Store in zip bag or air tight container up to 5 days. For best results, warm up leftovers before eating for best taste.


Keto Muddy Buddies (a.k.a 80’s Puppy Chow)

I remember these around fall as a kid! It would be at Halloween parties and of course at Christmas time celebrations!!

To say these are good is not in equality to the actual monumental taste these have!! The powdered erithrytol seals the deal so do not skip it!

Order some online, or grind some of your own with a coffeegrinder, but dont skip that step😁

On the nut butter, it traditionally uses peanut butter, which you can absolutely use, but we have peanut allergies so I went with 1/4 almond butter and 1/4 cashew butter. It amazingly smelled and tasted reminiscent of peanut butter!! Soo good!

Also on the butter and coconut oil…..use both or use all coconut for dairy free….or all butter for coconut free. It is a forgiving recipe that you can customize!

Keto Muddy Buddies

1 bag plain pork rinds (3.5 – 4oz)

1/2 cup ANY nut butter (use a combo of 2 kinds or all of 1)

3 Tbsp coconut oil

4 Tbsp butter

12 drops liquid stevia, OR 1/4 tsp powdered stevia

3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1 to 2 tsp powdered erithrytol/or swerve confectioners

Pour your bag of pork rinds in a large bowl. Set aside.

In a small saucepan put all ingredients in and warm up on medium heat. Whisk until melted and all incorporated.

Slowly pour half over the pork rinds in the bowl. Stir and fold with a spatula/scraper or wide spoon.

Repeat. Pour the rest and stir/fold well.

Spread it all out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silpat. Foil will not work well as when you try to remove,bits of foil tear off, eww. Get some parchment, its worth it!

Put into the freezer for 20 minutes.

Remove from freezer and start lifting the parchment or silpat and gently work the muddy buddies loose. Once loose, sift 1 to 2 tsp powdered erithrytol over all. Use a spatula to stir/fold them a bit.

I stored it in the original bag they came in, or use a gallon zip top bag.

Store in the fridge.

Carb count is determined by which nut butter you use. Figure that out and you have your calculations since the rest is carb free!


Keto Chocolate Chip Chaffle

Now I am totally a wafflehead so when I heard of chaffles it was an easy sell!

So far I have only done savory ones, but this one is so good it had to have a post dedicated to it!! Even the kids loved it and I am planning on making more and making ice cream sandwiches😍

Now it might sound like an odd recipe, but roll with it, it will work!

Keto Chocolate Chip Chaffle

1 egg
3 Tbsp monkfruit/or erithrytol
1/4 tsp maple extract
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c mozzarella
1 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp choc chips.

Warm up waffleiron to medium heat.

Whisk egg. Add everything to the bowl EXCEPT coconut flour & chocolate chips.

Whisk. Then add coconut flour.

Whisk well. Fold in chocolate chips.

Makes 3 waffles
.
.
Swerve brown sugar OR Sukrin Gold can stand in for monkfruit and maple extract. Its cheaper to get the extract and granulated sweetener though!

The one in the main picture has fresh whipped cream sweetened with stevia. Then I froze it for 15 minutes!! So wonderful this way! Or cut into strips and dunk in some unsweetened almond milk!!

Low Carb Torte Brownies

Like a super healthy, chocolatey, fudgey torte, but in little low carb squares!!

Go make some of my Low Carb Baking Mix first, then you will be all set for making all kinds of goodies!!

They are excellent at room temperature, but turn MORE fudgey when you put in the fridge overnight!

2.4 net carb each is a fabulously low number for just ONE!!

I confess, I had two, they are that good!!

Maybe top with some of my Chocolate mousse and Keto Chocolate syrup for a super rich dessert!!

The trick here is to whip the eggs and secret ingredient, okra, in the blender until it is whipped up like frothy meringue☺

Keto Chocolate Waffins

I literally found a way to enjoy muffins 5x faster than usual!! You simply cook them in a waffle iron🤗

It sounds crazy simple, and well, it is!!

Make up some keto muffins. Use a cookie scoop to evenly place them on your preheated waffle iron. Close, wait 3 to 5 minutes……every waffle iron is different so you will just have to figure out your timing.

I love how SUPER quick they are and the fact that I only need my waffle iron!! No oven, no muffin pan, no muffin liners!!

My waffle iron was a Christmas gift from my Dad! Go Dad!! It is ceramic lined so there are no harmful teflon fumes. Plus it is a belgian size with 4 small squares!!

Here is my recipe for Keto Chocolate Waffins….though I believe any muffin recipe would work. I will keep experimenting and let you know!

Keto Chocolate Waffins

3/4 c pumpkin puree

1/2 c almond butter

1 lg egg

4 Tbsp lakanto monkfruit granulated

1/4 c cocoa powder

2 Tbsp ground flaxseed meal

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup Lilly’s chocolate chips, or chopped 80% chocolate bar

Preheat oven to 375F OR preheat waffle iron on medium.

Put all in blender in order. Pulse. Scrape sides. Pulse, scrape, etc. Until all mixed. Using cookie scoop, portion into 12 muffin tins, or onto waffle iron.

For muffins in oven:

Bake 20 min & cool 10 minutes.

Or

3 minutes in waffle iron

Should make 12 muffins, or 12 waffins

Keto Copycat Soft Oreo Cookies

If there is one thing I miss its oreo cookies. I actually have not eaten them in a long time since going gluten free, but I have fond memories of them.

I used to eat oreos with my Dad in the morning when I was little before he went to work! He would let me dunk them in his coffee, soo good!

So when I made this cookie I was imagining them with icing in the middle, or with some keto ice cream for a keto ice cream sandwich. I will probably do some whipped cream and freeze it!

They come together quickly and are soooooo good!!

I love that it uses ingredients I already have for my keto baking😍

Keto Chocolate Dipped Donuts

You remember those little chocolate covered donettes, don’t you?

My Dad loved them and when he would get home from work my brother and I would look in his lunchbox for any extra donuts he had left! Super chocolatey and oh so good they melted in your mouth. The chocolate would leave a waxy feel on your tongue😋

Well I took my fave Keto donuts recipe and dipped them 3 times in this yummy chocolate coating instead of the cinnamon sugar mixture! It is a thin chocolate that soaks in the first coating, then builds each time.

Go make the donuts and then make the chocolate coating while they cool!

Get out a medium saucepan and add…..

After the 3rd dip return to the fridge for another 8 minutes!

The coating should be cooled and hardened. Now get a glass of unsweetened almond milk and munch away!!

My recipe makes 12 donuts. Approx 2.75 net carbs per donut.

Carb counts vary based on the type of cocoa powder used.

Keto Chocolate Dipped Donuts

1 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup cocoa powder

Pinch sea salt

1/3 cup powdered swerve

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

Put all in medium saucepan. Heat until halfway melted. Whisk well. Dip cooled donuts. Refrigerate 5 to 8 min. Repeat with dipping then cooling a total of 3 times. Store in fridge up to 1 week.
