Sugar Free at it's best


Ingredients

    Shortbread Crust
  • 2-1/2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered Swerve
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 large egg (whisked)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Lemon Filling
  • 1/3 cup powdered Swerve (or Monk Fruit)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper, hanging over the sides.
  2. Make the filling first, because it must be ready to go immediately when the crust comes out of the oven. In a medium bowl, stir together almond flour and powdered sweetener.
  3. Whisk in the eggs, lemon juice and lemon zest, until smooth. Set aside.
  4. To make the crust, combine the almond flour, sweetener and sea salt in a large bowl.
  5. Stir in the melted coconut oil, then the egg and vanilla. The dough will be crumbly, but able to be pressed together.
  6. Press the dough into the lined pan. Bake for about 13 to 16 minutes, until firm and golden.
  7. Remove the crust from the oven, and immediately pour the filling over the crust.
  8. Return to the oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until filling is set, but still soft.
  9. Cool completely on the counter, without moving or cutting. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before slicing.

Ingredients

    Sheet Cake
  • 2 cups almond flour

  • Additional powdered sweetener for sprinkling

Directions

    Cake:
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and grease a 10×15 jelly roll pan very well. You can also do this in a 11×17 pan but it will be thinner and will bake faster.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, coconut flour, whey protein, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the eggs, melted butter, water and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Spread the batter as evenly as possible int he prepared pan and bake 18 to 22 minutes, until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Remove and let cool completely.
  4. Cannoli Frosting:
  5. In a food processor or high powered blender, combine the ricotta and the cream cheese. Blend briefly until well combined. Add the sweetener, 1/4 cup of the heavy cream, and the vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.
  6. In a large bowl, beat the remaining 1 cup of cream until it holds stiff peaks. Add the ricotta mixture and fold together until well combined. Spread over the cooled cake.
  7. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and refrigerate at least 1 hour to set. Sprinkle with additional powdered sweetener just before serving.

  • 3 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • Frosting:
  • 5 ounces grass-fed butter at room temperature
  • 5 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/4-1/2 cup powdered Swerve
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons cocoa powder *for chocolate version

Directions

    Pumpkin Cupcakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Put cupcake papers in muffin tins. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together in a medium bowl almond four, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Set aside.
  4. Add eggs and Swerve to a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, 2 minutes. Add in vanilla extract, vinegar, coconut oil and pumpkin puree and beat until just incorporated. Gradually add in the dry flour mixture, alternating with almond milk. Once fully incorporated, fold in pecans.
  5. Distribute batter evenly into pan. I don’t overfill them so I get 12 cupcakes. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes (covering with aluminum foil at 15) until deep golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool for 15 minutes in the pan before removing, and cool completely on a rack before frosting.
  7. Make your cream cheese buttercream frosting while your cupcakes are cooling.
  8. Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
  9. Add the butter and cream cheese to a large bowl. Beat the mixture with an electric mixer until evenly combined, about 2 minutes.
  10. Add the salt and Swerve, one tablespoon at a time, and continue to beat until pale and fluffy (8-10 minutes). Feel free to scrape the bowl as needed and adjust sweetness to taste. Add vanilla extract and beat until fully incorporated.
  11. If making a chocolate version, sift the cocoa in one tablespoon at a time and beat until fully incorporated.
  12. One batch of frosting is enough for roughly 12 cupcakes.
