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 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!

Creamy Jalapeno Chicken

I cannot express enough how tasty this meal was. If you are bored with eating the same ole’ seasoned chicken… You need to take a stab at this recipe. Fairly easy to make and you can change it up by adding just a few ingredients.

The only thing I really wish I had on hand for this one was bacon, but regardless the recipe was perfect. Bacon makes everything better though, am I right?

You can add different seasonings and other cheeses if desired. I really want to try this dish in the cast iron skillet as well.

The video on how I made it is below.

 

Here’s the recipe:

Creamy Jalapeno Chicken 
Ingredients:
2 large chicken breast
3/4 cup shredded cheddar
Half a block of cheddar cheese sliced and cut in half pieces
4 jalapeno peppers diced
3/4 cup Heavy whipping cream
1 package full-fat cream cheese, softened
1/2-1 tbsp Pink Himalayan salt and herb blend
1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan salt
Pepper to taste

Optional: bacon (I didn’t have any on hand but it would’ve made this dish!)

Before preparing chicken:
Slice pieces of blocked cheddar and cut in half to be placed in chicken pockets
Dice jalapenos

Directions:
1. Preheat stovetop on low/ medium heat and add oven-safe skillet (can also use a glass baking dish, just skip this step)

2. Also preheat oven to 350

3. Combine jalapenos, heavy whipping cream, cream cheese, shredded cheddar, and spices in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

4. Slice slits in chicken to create small lined pockets every half inch or so.

5. Place cheddar slices in each pocket.

6. Place chicken in skillet and pour creamy mixture with jalapenos on top of chicken breast and in skillet.

7. Place oven-safe skillet with chicken in oven for 40 minutes or until cooked thoroughly. The cheese mixture will start to brown and bubble.
