Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Muffins

So muffins are popular and pie is popular……lets put them together! A handheld, portioned out way to enjoy both!

It is pumpkin season, you know, and I am finding as many ways as possible to use my favorite veggie in new low carb creations!

You have the option to bake as directed, or bake a little longer to firm it up a bit more and get a sturdier crumb that is more muffin like. I of course tried both ways and preferred the shorter bake time so I got the ultra moist crumb that was pie like!


Speaking of pumpkin, have you tried my Pumpkin Pie Spread from my 2nd cookbook “Chaffles, Cast Iron and The Crock” yet?

It comes together quickly and without much effort in your crockpot!! Perfect for spreading on biscuits, pancakes, waffles, or layered with my No Bake Cheesecake in a dish for a pumpkin delight!

Keto Baked French Toast

This is a way to have cake for breakfast and add in some protein with eggs!

It is a 2 part process, but goes quick once you are done with the baking. I recommend an 8 inch cast iron skillet as I used, but if for some reason you do not have one, you can go with a pie pan, glass preferred.

DO NOT FORGET to line your skillet or pie plate with parchment paper. Greasing it simply will not get out the cake after baking. DO NOT SKIP LINING WITH PARCHMENT! Ok, I will quit shouting, lol!

If you love cast iron as much as I do, then you would absolutely LOVE my 2nd cookbook “Chaffles Cast Iron and The Crock” !!

Low Carb Scotch Pancake Muffins

I do love a good pancake and have made them before here in the blender, and here in a bowl and here in a cast iron skillet…….BUT NOT IN A MUFFIN PAN yet!

Here is a light and fluffy pancake muffin that gets baked and then cooled to warm before enjoying! You can double the recipe and make a large batch. Once recipe makes about 12 muffins. Don’t forget to get some of my Keto Maple Syrup to top them with!

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!

  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.

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

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!

Perfect topped with additional whipped cream and chocolate shavings for presentation!

Low Carb Cranberry Orange Scones

A scone is a British baked good, usually made of wheat, or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often slightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash.

These scones I made low carb when I subbed the wheat flour for part coconut and part almond flour. This lends to a tender crumb that does not break into a million crumbs when you take a bite🤣

Now this recipe is ultra versatile as you can swap out extracts and swap out additions!

It is important to follow the steps as they are meant to be the way they are so you achieve the same results.

Here they are on the pan.

I then brushed the tops with a beaten egg, then sprinkled with additional monkfruit sweetener.
