This keto walnut coffee cake is a bakery style cake with a walnut cinnamon swirl. An amazing low carb, sugar free brunch treat.


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup Swerve Brown
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 6 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 6 tablespoons whey protein powder (or egg white protein powder)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup Swerve Sweetener
  • 6 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 to 1 cup water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9-inch tube pan (aka angel food cake pan) well. Line the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the walnuts, Swerve Brown and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the butter with the Swerve until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then beat in the vanilla extract, scraping down the beaters and the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Add the flour mixture and beat until well combined. Then beat in 3/4 cup of the water. If the batter is quite thick, add additional water as necessary. The batter should be scoopable and spreadable but not quite pourable.
  6. Spread about half the batter in the prepared pan, and then sprinkle with half of the walnut mixture. Spread the remaining batter in the pan and sprinkle with the remaining walnut mixture.
  7. Bake 45 to 55 minutes, until golden brown and just firm to the touch. A tester inserted in the center should come out clean.
  8. Remove and let cool in the pan, then run a sharp knife just around the edges to loosen and transfer to a plate.

Strawberry gluten free and keto pop tarts

Strawberry Gluten Free & Keto Pop Tarts

  • Servings: 8 small pop tarts
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Sooooo Good!


Ingredients

    For the strawberry filling
  • 1-1/2 cup strawberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup raspberries or more strawberries
  • 1-4 teaspoons erythritol xylitol or swerve to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 tablesppons chia seeds or more as needed
  • For the pie crust
  • 1 batch best pie crust ever – see link below recipe with 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 egg lightly beaten for egg wash
  • For the cheesecake glaze
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter
  • 2-4 tablespoons powdered erythritol xylitol or swerve to taste
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch kosher salt
  • heavy cream or almond milk as needed

Directions

    For the srawberry chia jam
  1. Cook your strawberries and raspberries in a saucepan over medium heat until they begin to break down, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the lemon juice and sweetener of choice (to taste). Mash it down or leave it chunky. Cook for 5 more minutes, remove from heat and stir in the chia seeds. Let stand until it begins to thicken, adding water if needed to thin out until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Allow to cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container in the fridge for a week or two and in the freezer for up to three months.
  4. For the pie crust
  5. See link below
  6. Make a batch of our super flakey pie crist and chill while the strawberry jam is setting. I also highly suggest you add a teaspoon of orange zest to the crust.
  7. To assemble the pop tarts
  8. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking tray with a mat or parchment paper.
  9. Roll out pastry dough in between two sheets of parchment paper, lightly dusting with coconut flour as needed. Cut into desired size (I suggest making 8 pop tarts, as they’re very filling.)
  10. Brush edges with egg wash and spoon a couple tablespoons of the chilled chia jam. Press edges together and press down with a fork. If there are any cracks, simply pinch the dough together. As with regular pie crust, try to work quickly or put your dough back in the fridge for 15 minutes if it begins to warm up too much.
  11. Place pop tarts in prepared tray, cut a few slits on the top with a sharp knife, freeze for 15 minutes, brush with egg wash and bake for 20-30 minutes, until golden all over. Baking time can vary a lot from oven to oven so be sure to check in on them at minute 10. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  12. Make the glaze while the pop tarts are cooking by creaming together with your mixer the cream cheese, butter and powdered sweetener until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract, salt, and adjust texture to taste with a teaspoon of milk at a time. keep in mind that unless you add a lot of sweetener, your glaze won’t set completely.
  13. Store them unglazed in an airtight container, at room temperature for 2-3 days. Alternatively you can freeze them unbaked or baked for about a month.

  • Print

Fluffy, gooey, and ultra sticky and nothing short of dreamy!


Ingredients

    For the caramel-pecan topping
  • 1-1/2 cups pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 batch 15-minute keto caramel (see below)
  • For the gluten free & keto rolls
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or coconut cream + 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons water lukewarm between 105-110F
  • 1 tablespoon inulin or maple syrup, honey to fee the yeast
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • pinch ground ginger optional (to help proof the yeast)
  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 6 tablespoons golden flaxseed meal or 5 tablespoons psyllium husk, finely ground
  • 5 tablespoons whey protein isolate
  • 4-6 tablespoons erytritol or allulose, to taste
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 eggs room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon unsalted grass-fed butter or ghee/coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • For the cinnamon filling
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter softened
  • 4-6 tablespoons erythritol or allulose, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • For the Caramel
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed butter salted or unsalted
  • 1/4-1/2 cup alluose or xylitol
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4-3/4 teaspoon kosher salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses optional

Directions

    For the Caramel
  1. Add butter to a small saucepan over medium/ow heat and simmer, stirring every so often, until fully browned (about 5 minutes). Add in the sweetener, heavy cream and salt stirring until fully combined. Add in the molasses and stir briefly until just combined.
  2. Simmer over very low heat for 15 minutes (don’t stir at all), taste for seasoning and pour into a glass container of choice. Your caramel should be sticky and thick, but still totally pourable. use warm or allow to cool completely, and can be refrigerated for up to a week.
  3. For the caramel-pecan topping
  4. Line with parchment paper the bottom of a 9×9 pan. Set aside. Prepare a work station for rolling up your buns by placing a 9×9 piece of cling film on the counter. Leave handy a small bowl with water (to wet your fingers) and a touch of oil to spread the dough (avocado works great here).
  5. Scatter pecans onto prepared pan. Pour caramel sauce on top of pecans. Set aside while you make the rolls.
  6. For the sticky buns.
  7. Mix sour cream, water and inulin (maple syrup) to feed the yeast in a small bowl. Heat up over a water bath to 105-110F. And if you don’t have a thermometer it should only feel lightly warm to touch.
  8. Add yeast and a dash of ginger to a large bowl. Pour lightly warm sour cream mixture over yeast, cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for 7 minutes. The mixture should be bubbly, if it isn’t start again (too cold water won’t activate the yeast and too hot will kill it.)
  9. Mix your flours while the yeast is proofing. Add almond flour, flaxseed meal, whey protein powder, sweetener, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt to a medium bowl and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
  10. Once your yeast is proofed, add int he eggs, lightly cooled melted butter (you don’t want to scramble the eggs or kill the yeast!) and vinegar. Mix with an electric mixer for a minute or so until fully mixed. Add the flour mixture in one go, mixing quickly until thoroughly incorporated. The dough will become very sticky, so you want to work quickly to get it mixed properly. use a wet spatula to gather the dough into a ball.
  11. Divide the dough in 3 so you work in batches, important if you’ve never worked with this dough (you can roll it all in one go after you get some practice!) Lightly oil the piece of cling film and place the dough on top, spreading it with your wet fingertips onto a roughly 7.5×9 ” rectangle. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to taste, leaving a 1 inch at the top untouched. using the cling film as an aid, roll the dough as tightly as you can and sealing the edge with your wet fingertips. Carefully we the blade of a sharp knife and cut into three if you divided the dough in thirds. Turn the rolls and lightly press them down with your palm.
  12. Transfer the rolls to prepared pan with caramel-pecan topping. Cover with a kitchen towel and place in a warm draft-free space for 50-60 minutes until the dough has almost doubled in size. How long it takes depends on your altitude, temperature and humidity – so keep an eye out for it every 15 minutes or so.
  13. Preheat oven to 400F while the dough is proofing
  14. Place the pan on top of a baking tray and transfer gently into the oven. Bake for 22-30 minutes until deep golden, covering with a loose foil dome as soon as they begin to brown. Just be sure that the foil isn’t resting directly on them. You can do less baking time for gooey-er rolls and longer for more bready ones.
  15. Allow to cool in the pan for 20 minutes and invert onto a serving plate (and ENJOY!)
