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.

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.

Blueberry Keto Pancakes

One thing that happens often at our house, is our kids saying “Mommy, we should make keto _______________________ (fill in the blank of their favorite carb option meal). We had ultimately given up the tasty, pastry-like breakfast foods that we loved but were loaded with sugar. Gradually we have found great replacements that are so much better for us and taste just like the real deal.

The last time I heard that mommy statement, it had me digging for something different than eggs and bacon for breakfast. The kiddos said we should make keto pancakes and so it was, we went on the hunt to find a good recipe. We previously had purchased Paleo pancakes and the kids ate them, but to me, they were very eggy tasting and I would rather go without. I kept searching and tried a few recipes but this is one that I settled on until I come across something better.

These are still not as good as our keto maple bacon waffle but they are quicker to make and will do in a pinch.

INGREDIENTS
1/2 c. almond flour
4 oz. full fat cream cheese, softened
large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Butter, for frying and serving

Optional Ingredients:
1 tsp.
 lemon zest

Keto Syrup (a must try!):
Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup (sweetened with monk fruit) – use KetoFam20 for 20% off your order.

 

DIRECTIONS
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, cream cheese, eggs, and lemon zest until smooth.
  2. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Pour in about 3 tablespoons batter and cook until golden, 2 minutes. Flip and cook 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and continue with the rest of the batter.
  3. Serve topped with butter.

Low Carb Double Chocolate Doughnuts

I recently found a yummy low carb, keto doughnut recipe that was shared via our private Facebook group and I just had to try it. I am always leery of suggesting recipes that I haven’t tried and tested. Of course, this gave me an excuse to make some low carb doughnuts so I was all for it. I highly recommend you give them a shot, you will be amazed at how good they taste. Careful not to overindulge!

These low carb chocolate doughnuts were super quick and easy to make, even the kids were able to help and they cooked in no time. I didn’t have a doughnut pan so I just used a mini muffin pan instead. There were a few other substitutions I made aside from what was used in the original recipe so I posted it at the bottom of this blog post in case you want it. Check out how I personally made them below.

Low Carb Double Chocolate Doughnuts
3g net carb per 2 doughnuts

For the doughnuts:
cooking spray to coat donut pans or mini muffin tin (I used avocado oil on a baster)
2 cups superfine blanched almond flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup Lakanto Monk Fruit sweetener or equivalent granulated sweetener
2 tablespoons melted grass-fed butter
3 large organic eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

Chocolate Glaze:
1/4 cup Swerve or equivalent granulated sweetener
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2+ tablespoons water

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray 2 donut pans with cooking spray or grease entire mini muffin tin with avocado oil and baster.
2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and keto sweetener. Use a whisk to mix thoroughly.
3. Add melted butter to dry ingredients and stir until absorbed.
4. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and heavy whipping cream and stir until smooth.
5. Spoon into prepared donut pans or mini muffin tin.
6. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Donuts are done when the top springs back when touched. Note- if you are using the mini muffin tin as I did, the cooking time is less than 5 minutes so be sure to watch closely.
7. Remove and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes (using the mini muffin pan these cooked within less than 5 minutes and I removed them immediately to ensure they didn’t overcook) then flip out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
8. In a medium shallow bowl, whisk together keto sweetener and unsweetened cocoa powder. Add the heavy whipping cream and water and whisk to combine.
9. Add enough water until the glaze thins out and is of a dippable consistency, without being too watery.
10. Dip the top of each doughnut into the glaze or using a spoon drizzle the glaze over the mini chocolate doughnuts and let set about 30 minutes.

90 Second French Toast

One thing that I miss from my old woe is French Toast, and when I say that… I mean… Any kind of french toast, but Cracker Barrel used to be my favorite. I have finally found a replacement and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you.

This 90 Second French Toast is not only easy to do, but super low in carbs and sugars and tastes just like the real deal! Be sure to check out the Lakanto Monk Fruit sweetened maple syrup.Use our KetoFam Code for 20% off

 

Recipe
INGREDIENTS:
For the 90 Second Bread (makes two pieces of french toast)
3 tbsp Almond Flour
½ tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cream Cheese Softened
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp Monk Fruit or other keto friendly sweetener
2 tbsp Melted Butter
1 Egg

For the French Toast Batter
1 egg
¼ cup Full Fat Heavy Whipping Cream
¼ tsp Monk Fruit Sweetener

Syrup: Lakanto Maple Syrup (made with Monk Fruit)

INSTRUCTIONS

Melt 2 tbsp of butter in a microwave safe bowl.
Add in the almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, Monk Fruit, cream cheese, and egg and whisk well. Press down the edges of the batter and smooth out the top so that it cooks evenly. Microwave on high for 90 seconds.

While it cooks prepare a skillet on medium heat then prepare the French Toast batter to dip in. Combine 1 egg, heavy cream, and monk fruit sweetener and whisk well. (this coated 4 pieces)

When the 90 seconds is up, remove from the microwave and use a spoon to loosen the 90 second bread (it will have pulled away from the sides, so focus on the bottom) then flip onto a plate. Cut in half like a bun (careful- it will be hot).

Melt 1-2 tsp of butter in your preheated skillet. Take the individual slices of bread one by one and soak them in the French Toast batter, flipping with a spatula to coat both sides. Then place each on melted butter in the skillet. Cook until golden brown and firm. Remove from heat and add a little Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetened Maple Syrup. Pair it with bacon slices for an even better experience. Enjoy!
