Low Carb Chocolate Chip Muffins

Have you ever wanted to have cookies for breakfast? Maybe when you were a kid, but now you can have that for breakfast WITHOUT it being a cookie!

These muffins come together quickly and taste very much like a chocolate chip cookie! The use of coconut flour helps keep these nut free but also balances out the ingredients so it has a moist and tender crumb!

They do keep well in the fridge and are even better when warmed up!

Low Carb Maple Donuts

You know those donuts you can get at the local bakery that are slathered with the maple icing…….yes, these are what I used as my memory to re-create them into low carb!

It is so close to the real thing that my kids went crazy over them!

First you need to make sure you have some Keto Maple Syrup either made with my recipe HERE, or purchased. AND you also need to make sure you have some Keto Brown Sugar made up with my recipe HERE, or purchased.

You will also need a donut pan, silicone preferred for easy removal from the pan! Non stick may not release in one piece once baked!

Using maple extract will give you the closest possible flavor to what I have created. If you sub maple syrup for the maple extract it may add too much moisture and result in runny glaze and too moist donuts. Following the recipe as stated is how you will get the results I did!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and set your donut pan on a baking sheet so it is ready.
  2. In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda. Whisk well and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine wet ingredients: eggs, heavy cream, keto maple syrup, melted butter and vanilla.
  4. While whisking the wet ingredients, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Whisk well until batter is smooth.
  5. Now put all of the batter into a piping bag, or use the corner end of a gallon ziploc bag. Pipe batter evenly into each donut well in your pan. Smack pan on the counter to release any bubbles in batter and to make it even.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes until it is set and lightly golden.
  7. Let donuts cool in pan for 5 minutes before slowly turning onto a cooling rack with a pan underneath. Make your glaze!
  8. In a small saucepan add all of the glaze ingredients and heat over medium heat while whisking until it is completely smooth and thin.
  9. In a quick motion, drizzle glaze over each donut. It works best to follow the golden circle on the donut so you cover it as evenly as possible. You MUST do this in a swift motion as the glaze will harden and crystallize in the pan before you are able to coat them all if you take too long. If it hardens in the pan before you are able to coat them all, reheat and try again with the remaining amount.
  10. Donuts keep on the counter for 1-2 days. For longer storage keep in fridge up to 5 days.

Low Carb Fudge Brownies

Not only are these luscious brownies super fudgy but they come together in 1 bowl!!

You CANNOT skip the step of warming up the eggs, or making sure they are room temperature. If you do not, you will get clumpy batter and possibly scrambled eggs!!

Store them in the fridge and if you want MORE chocolate, top with a fudge icing!

11 Low Carb Recipes Using Coconut Flour

If you have access to a lot of eggs, then coconut flour will be more economical for you in the long run versus other low carb flours!

It absorbs a ton of moisture so the eggs help accomplish that need, plus in any given recipe you will use up to 1/2 cup total versus with the equivalent in almond flour equaling 2-3 cups! This helps me to conserve my low carb baking ingredients when I change it up to use coconut flour only.

So in celebration of coconut flour I have compiled a list of 11 of my own creations using coconut flour! I have broken it up into meal type as well so you can meal plan!

Smoky Peach Chicken

This recipe comes together quickly and puts your cast iron skillet to good use! I thought that peaches were forever off of the table in my low carb lifestyle, but to my happy surprise I found Natures Hollow Low Carb Peach Jam!

I am a “straight-up” gal so when I go to try a new jam or jelly I take a spoon and dig in! If it tastes amazing right from the jar, then it will be amazing in a recipe! This is the main reason why this recipe was created, to showcase the sweet peachy goodness of this amazing low carb jam! It has small pieces, not big chunks and for that I love the texture too!

Low Carb Whisked Pancakes

I have another pancake recipe called Keto Blender Pancake Recipe , but it uses cream cheese and the blender, which usually is not a problem, but I wanted to re-create the pancakes that mix in a bowl!

Spring is approaching and it has gotten me thinking of recipes I can have on hand for camping season!

This recipe works out well for any mix and pour situation! Another nice thing about these is that the texture is improved with the mixing of the flours in the base 🙂

They also re-heat well in a toaster!

Instructions
Chicken Cutlets
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Slice chicken breasts lengthwise. In a small bowl whisk eggs, garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper.
  3. Add to a shallow bowl. Allow chicken cutlets to sit in the egg mixture, rotating to coat. Allow to sit 15 minutes covered.
Chicken Breading
  1. In a shallow bowl mix together the pork rinds, almond flour, parmesan, garlic powder and onion powder.
  2. Dip chicken in crumb mixture one at a time after letting the egg wash drip away a bit before covering in the breading.
  3. Flip and press lightly to coat the other side. Place the chicken cutlets on a baking sheet. Let them sit for 5 minutes while you heat up the frying oil in an oven proof skillet. The oil will be at the correct temperature when the end of a wooden spoon forms bubbles when placed in the oil.
  4. Fry each cutlet for 5 minutes on each side with the oil at a medium temperature. Remove from the skillet once they are all fried. Remove oil from the pan and wipe clean.
Marinara Sauce
  1. Dump all sauce ingredients in the skillet and simmer for 10 minutes to meld the flavors.
Assembling the dish
  1. Now with the marinara sauce in the oven proof skillet, put the chicken cutlets in the sauce.
  2. Spoon the sauce over the cutlets so they are covered. Mix all of the topping ingredients together in a small bowl then sprinkle over each cutlet in the skillet.
  3. Place the skillet in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until bubbly and cheese is melted.
Recipe Notes

If you do not have an ovenproof skillet, put the cutlets in a 9x13 pan and cover with sauce, then cheese, proceed with baking the cutlets as described.
