Keto NO OatMeal

Keto No’atmeal is surprisingly easy to make and so healthy for you. At this point in the pregnancy game (26 weeks!) I am in need of some quick, healthy breakfast ideas. Flaxseed and Chia Seeds are nutrient-dense foods that have amazing benefits for your body (See graphics below).

There are so many variations of this recipe so I kept it simple and you can add in any other tasty ideas you might have.

NO’atmeal Recipe:

2 Tbsp Ground Flax
2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1/2 C any keto-friendly milk, I use unsweetened Almond Milk carrageenan-free
Toppings or add-ins of your choice (some ideas: cinnamon, berries, Lakanto Monk Fruit Maple Syrup– use our link for 20% off)

Directions:

Heat everything in a saucepan on the stove until it simmers mixing constantly.
Remove from heat and add in your desired toppings. Enjoy right away or some prefer to let it sit in the fridge overnight and enjoy the next day.

Mock Keto Kind Bars

🥜Mock Keto Kind Bars🥜

This mixture tastes amazing and held together like a granola bar should!

I have a sweet tooth and have been on the lookout for a keto granola bar to take with us when we travel that also tasted good and didn’t fall apart into crumbs. These amazing Mock Keto Kind Bars are the result of scouring the web and combining a handful of recipes along with the ingredients I had at home, to make exactly what I thought would be a tasty keto bar.

I wanted a bar that would hold together, that was low cost and that my kids would eat when we travel. When I came across this recipe I hit the keto jackpot (the base recipe can be found at Wholesomeyum.com)

This recipe can be altered to suit your tastebuds! Here is what I used:


Almonds 

Chia Seeds

Ground Flax 

Walnuts

Almond Flakes

Super Fine Blanched Almond Flour 

Almond Butter

Vanilla

Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

Kerry Gold Butter

 

So easy! Check out the video of how to make them!

Keto Cauliflower Potato Salad

Summer is right around the corner and when I think of summer I think of picnicking with delicious keto sides! One of the things every southern summer cookout has as a staple is potato salad. It is a dish I have sorely missed!

When I was planning Easter dinner, the two things that came to mind were potato salad and ham.

I concocted this Keto Cauliflower “Potato” Salad at our Easter meal and I have to say it was so good I didn’t even miss the real thing! My husband even said this “Was my best side dish yet!” Play with the ingredients to suit your tastes. We are big mustard fans so we like a more mustardy keto potato salad. Just remember, you can always add more but you can’t take it away so add a bit at a time, taste test and keep going until you reach the desired yumminess.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

    • 1 large head of cauliflower

    • 4-6 hard-boiled eggs chopped

    • 8 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled

    • 1 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

    • pink Himalayan salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste

    • 4 tsp. yellow mustard

    • 3/4-1 cup mayo to taste

    • 1-2 tbsp dill relish

  • 1/2 an onion diced

     

    Optional:

  • sliced green onion/chives

  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder

 

 

Directions:
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Toss in chopped cauliflower (remove most of the stem) for 5-7 minutes until just tender. Careful not to overcook or the cauliflower will turn to mush.
While the cauliflower is boiling, cook about a half pound of bacon in a large skillet until crispy. Drain and let cool, then crumble into pieces.
Drain the cauliflower and set aside to cool while prepping the other ingredients. Place in the fridge if needing to serve soon after.
Peel and dice 4-6 hard boiled eggs, depending on preference.
Shred 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese and set aside.
Dice 1/2 an onion and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl place cauliflower and all other ingredients in and stir well to combine.
 

          This recipe is versatile so if you are not a big onion fan, mustard fan, etc. you can change the quantity to your suit your taste. Chill, serve, and enjoy!

Pork Rind Crusted Pork Loin

This seriously sounds as amazing as it was!! If you love pork chops this keto breading takes them to the NEXT LEVEL! The perfect blend of crunchiness with the utmost tender pork chop you will ever eat. I typically cook pork loin on the stove top, in a skillet, with no breading. I decided to try something different and MAN am I glad I did?!

If you have a cast iron skillet, that’s the way to go. If not, don’t despair… you can still make this delicious chunk o’ meat and enjoy it just the same.

Here’s a quick video with the steps involved in breading the pork loin in case you need a visual or just want to watch something that makes your mouth water until you get a chance to actually make em’!

 

 

Ingredients:

6-8 thinly sliced boneless pork chops
1/2 to 1 bag Pork Rinds (use spicy if you’d like a little extra kick)
1/2 cup almond flour
2 large eggs
**** your favorite seasonings of choice (I used the ones listed below)
1 tbsp. Pink Himalayan Salt and Herb Blend
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Steak seasoning mix

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Heat a cast iron skillet on the stove top with a few tablespoons of avocado oil over medium heat. If you do not have a cast iron skillet, a large baking sheet sprayed with oil can be used instead.
  3. Use a food processor to finely grind pork rinds.
  4. Add ground pork rinds and almond flour to a plate or large dish, spread out mixture evenly and set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl whisk together eggs and seasoning to make an egg wash.
  6. Dip each pork chop in the egg wash making sure to coat each side by flipping the pork chop.
  7. Take the pork chop out of the egg wash then place it into the almond flour/pork rind mixture.
  8. Coat each side of the pork chop evenly with the mixture.
  9. Place breaded pork chop into the cast iron skillet (be sure the oil is hot so it will immediately start to crisp the breading).
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes on one side then remove from oven and flip each pork chop over to brown on the other side. Return to oven and bake for another 10 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.

 

I can’t wait to try this keto breading with some chicken tenders! Let us know in the comments if you make it!

Low-Carb-Keto Cinnamon Rolls

       I have been eyeballing keto cinnamon roll recipes for a while now. I was under the impression the recipes were all too complicated and it just wouldn’t taste the way I was expecting. I was surprised at how good these cinnamon rolls were. They turned out delightful! The entire family enjoyed them. The only thing I may do differently next time is to add more baking powder to give more fluff. 
       The one diet you will be successful with is the one you will stick to and I know if my family and I feel deprived of great foods, we would not stick with it! One of my favorite things to do is find recipes we have grown to love and make them keto/low- carb style. So YES! You can have cinnamon rolls with the keto diet! ENJOY!

The icing is the best part

 


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup super-fine blanched almond flour
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups mozzarella shredded (using low-moisture is best)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2+ tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp aluminum free baking powder
  • 3 tbsp granulated keto approved sweetener (I used Lakanto-Monk Fruit)
  • Icing

    • 2-4 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (use more for a thinner icing)
    • 4 oz full-fat cream cheese
    • 2 tbsp keto approved sweetener
    • Dash of vanilla

      Instructions

      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

      2. Place mozzarella and cream cheese in a large glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute.

      3. Remove the mixture from the microwave, add in the almond flour and egg and stir. If it becomes difficult to stir, place back in the microwave for 20-30 second increments (stirring in between) until able to form a smooth dough.

      4. Place the dough on a sheet of parchment paper, spread out with a spoon.
        5. Place a second sheet of parchment paper on top of the dough, using your hands and a rolling pin/empty wine bottle 😉) into a thin layer about 1/4 inch thick.

        *** Handy Keto Mom Hack– use a clean empty wine bottle as a makeshift rolling pin to roll out the dough.

        6. Spread melted butter over the dough using a cooking brush. Sprinkle the cinnamon and keto approved sweetener (Lankanto-Monk Fruit, Swerve Granularover the dough. 

        7. Begin rolling the dough using/pulling the parchment paper to form a log with your hands. Slice the dough starting from the middle into about 10 equal pieces.

        8. Using a glass baking dish or cookie sheet, place the cinnamon rolls in the oven on 350 F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and firm.

        9. Remove and let cool before icing.

        Icing

        1. Using a hand mixer, mix the unsweetened almond milk, full-fat cream cheese, keto sweetener, and vanilla until icing forms. For a thicker icing, use less almond milk. When finished, use a spoon to drizzle the rolls with icing.
          * For more icing, double the recipe.
