The icing is the best part
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place mozzarella and cream cheese in a large glass bowl and heat in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
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.
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.
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.
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.

🦃🎄Happy Holidays from The Keto Family🎄🦃 keto peeps!
In this video we make a holiday hickory smoked ham and fixings using our Instant Pot. Sides included Brussel Sprouts with bacon and loaded cauliflower. The cauliflower dish is LOW-CARB due to the Velveeta ingredients, it is best to shred your own cheese to make the dish a true keto side. However, it was delicious. Velveeta also tends to have a bit more carbs than block cheddar so you want to be sure to limit the amount used, if you choose to go that route.

🍂It’s fall ya’ll!🍂
The temperature changed to cold here in CO pretty quickly. As soon as the seasons start to transition our minds go straight to fall goodies, one of those favorites being chili! We experimented with a couple different recipes settling on this one as a favorite so far.
Just a heads up, my husband really likes to spice up his chili so sometimes I will make a separate dish for the kiddos without so much spice to it. This recipe really had just the right amount of kick though. It can be made on the stovetop or in the crockpot give or take some of the ingredients depending on your preference.
Tips: If you are concerned about carb count, lower the amount of tomatoes and increase the amount of radishes- use half a can of tomatoes instead. Use more chicken or bone broth to give additional volume and a thinner base. This chili is the perfect warm and savory recipe for slipping into fall.
2 lbs. grass-fed beef
1 can tomato sauce (can also be found here on Vitacost) – tomato paste can also be used here, just look for no added sugars.
1 can diced Roma tomatoes
1- 4 oz can diced green chiles
1/2 white onion- diced
1 bundle organic radishes- washed and quartered
1/2 cup organic chicken broth
1/2 bundle sprigs of cilantro
Seasoning (add desired seasonings of choice- what we used is below)
2 tbsp Chili powder
1 tsp Pink Himalayan salt
1 1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp pink Himalayan Salt and Herb blend
2 tsp Mrs. Dash garlic and herb
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
Additional toppings as desired
1. Brown the grass-fed beef and diced onions in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drain the beef and set aside.
2. On the stove top, use a large pot to add in all ingredients and seasoning. Add the beef last, to prevent sticking.
3. Cook on low-medium, stirring often for about an hour. Let simmer on low for 2-3 hours, the longer it cooks the more flavorful it will taste. If you are impatiently waiting, you can enjoy a bowl about an hour after cooking but for the best tasting chili wait it out.
