Keto Coffee Cake Muffins

These Keto Coffee Cake Muffins are so tasty that you won’t believe they are keto friendly. The swirl of cinnamon, sweetness of Bocha Sweet and hint of vanilla guarantee they’ll satisfy your tastebuds and help you stick to your ketogenic diet. Actually, my theory is, that if you can learn how to cook and bake keto friendly… that you’ll be much more likely to stick to the keto diet and achieve your health goals. When I first started the keto diet, I made recipe after recipe… completely frustrated by the bland and garbage-worthy results. Now, having grown up baking and …

Keto Walking Tacos

Keto Walking Tacos have been on our wish list…well…since we started keto. When we began planning our oldest daughters high school graduation party and decided on walking tacos as the “main course”, I knew I needed a creative solution for my clients, friends and family who eat keto and would be attending! Not all of them would be satisfied by a taco salad (the obvious option). A quick trip to the grocery store and a perusal of the ‘grain-free’ section left me empty handed. However, the pork rinds peaked my interest. If I could find individual bags of pork rinds, …

Keto Asian Coleslaw

This crisp, lightly sweet keto asian coleslaw is a great addition to your weekly meal plan. I created this recipe after we went out to dinner and I saw an Asian inspired coleslaw as a side on the menu. Intrigued, I took a bite of my friend’s side (she ordered it) and found the taste to be amazing. I knew I had to replicate it in my keto kitchen. This recipe has a net carb count of 3 net carbs per serving which comes from the cabbage & red pepper. By omitting the red pepper you can reduce the carb …

Keto Portabella Pizzas

Is there anything better than cheesy, full flavored pizza that keeps you on your keto diet? We think not. These keto portabella pizzas do the trick and take only 25 minutes from start to finish! Here’s how this idea came around. I love, love, love marinated and grilled portabella mushrooms. My husband… not so much. But, he would eat just a little bit because he knows mushrooms are so good for him. So, I thought… what if I use portabella mushroom as a pizza CRUST? Because of the melty cheese, I knew grilling wasn’t the best option. I mean, who …

Easy Low Carb Pizza Sauce

I’ve developed a few low carb pizza recipes throughout the years, but I hadn’t yet created an easy and delicious tomato based low carb pizza sauce to go along with it. For my birthday, I got an Aerogarden…and I’ve been growing a few different types of fresh basil. This low carb recipe was inspired because I was looking for a way to use up the fresh basil I had just harvested. When on a ketogenic diet and keeping carbohydrates low, remember that tomatoes are inherently high in natural sugars. So, any tomato based pizza sauce should be used in moderation. …

Your New Favorite Keto Snack These keto nuts have quickly become a favorite keto travel snack. We make up a double or triple batch (depending on how long our trip is) a few days before we travel. Then, we fill snack sized baggies and toss a few in our carry …

Sugar Free Maple Bourbon Glaze

I originally created this Sugar Free Maple-Bourbon Glaze for Easter Ham. The bourbon in the glaze balances the flavors of the peppery brown mustard and the sweet sugar substitutes, making it delightful on a salmon filet, a meaty chicken thigh or barbecued into smoked turkey legs. Glaze Your Meats One benefit of using a sugar substitute is that they don’t burn. You can apply your sugar-free glaze liberally throughout the cooking process without the fear of it burning. I have a number of other ideas for this glaze, including smothered chicken thighs in the Instant Pot. I’ll update this post …
