Keto Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup finely diced walnuts
  2. 1/2 cup coconut flour
  3. 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  4. 1/4 cup  Steviva Blend (or your favorite stevia/erythritol baking blend)
  5. 1/4 tsp sea salt
  6. 6 tbsp melted butter, unsalted (Still need to try it with coconut oil)Screen-Shot-2017-05-02-at-2.19.21-PM-1024x762.png
For the filling
  1. 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  2. 1 cup finely diced strawberries
  3. 1 cup finely diced rhubarb (about 2 stalks)
  4. 1 tbsp lemon juice
  5. 1 tsp Steviva Blend (or your favorite stevia/erythritol baking blend)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F/ 176C
  2. In a bowl, combine filling ingredients. Xanthan gum should be lightly sprinkled while mixing so that it’s evenly spread and doesn’t clump. Set bowl aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine walnuts, coconut flour, flaxseed meal, 1/4 cup sweetener, sea salt and toss together so it mixes evenly.
  4. Add butter and combine until the whole mix is crumbly.
  5. Set 1/2 cup of the crumble aside and the final another 1 tsp sweetener to it.
  6. Grease a 9″ glass pie dish with butter, then press down the bowl of crumble. Use your hands to press it flat into the bottom.
  7. Pour the fruit mixture over the crust and spread evenly.
  8. Finally, sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of crumble over the pie.
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes covered with tinfoil, then a final 10-20 minutes until crumble is browned (this will prevent burning the crumble because this dish needs a little time to cook).
  10. Once finished, let cool completely in the refrigerator (at least a few hours to set so it can be sliced and held like a pie), then serve.
  11. Enjoy!

Flaxseed Cinnamon Muffins

Flourless grain-free, sugar-free, low carb muffins made with just flaxseed.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups roughly ground flaxseed
  • ¼ cup birch-sourced xyltiol or 20-30 drops alcohol-free stevia
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Himalayan rock salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • ½ cup water, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a 12-count muffin pan with non-bleached paper liners. Set aside.
  2. Combine flax seed with sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine fully and set aside.
  3. Add eggs, water, oil and vanilla extract to the jug of your high-powered blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds, until foamy.
  4. Transfer liquid mixture to the bowl with the flaxseed mixture. Stir with a spatula, just until incorporated. The mixture will be very fluffy. Once incorporated, allow to sit for 3 minutes.
  5. Spoon mixture into prepared muffin pan, each cavity should be filled about 90% of the way up. The muffins will expand while baking so don’t fill to the very tops.
  6. Bake muffins for 13-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and remove muffins from the cavities immediately and place on a cooling rack.
  7. Muffins can be toasted or frozen. Keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

SUGAR-FREE FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE ALMOND TORTE

I made this for Christmas and it was a massive hit. Very moist on the inside and super chocolatey. Non keto following family members loved it just as much. Made it the night before and after it cooled left it on the counter covered with a dish towel  and it was still very moist. Almost had a brownie like consistency. I’ll be making it again for the next party we go to just as long as it stays out of the house because I would eat the entire thing   . Ended up not making the topping but we did use whipping cream with a drop of sugar free vanilla extract and it was great. For non keto followers ice cream would be an insanely delicious add.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks butter (1 cup) unsalted, cut into pieces
  • 8 ounces 85% dark chocolate chopped (we used 4oz 100%, 4oz 56% because it was all we could find)
  • 6 large eggs separated
  • 3/4 cup Swerve granulated sweetener (you can also buy this at Publix)
  • 1 tsp chocolate liquid Stevia (also at Publix)
  • 1/2 cup almond butter no sugar added
  • Optional topping: In a stand mixer combine 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream with 2 tbsp almond butter and 1/2 tsp liquid stevia. Spread on cake once cool and top with toasted slivered almonds.

 

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a 10 inch spring form pan with parchment and spray with olive oil cooking spray. (I brought my silicone bread loaf pan and used this instead)

2. In a heat proof bowl over gently simmering water, melt butter and chocolate together. Stir until smooth. Set aside.

3. In a stand mixer,stir egg yolks and swerve until combined. (Didn’t have a stand mixer so just used a whisk and elbow grease.)
4. Gradually pour in melted chocolate mixture into yolks.
5. Add in chocolate stevia and almond butter and stir until combined.
6. In another bowl use an electric mixer to beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.

7. Fold them into the chocolate almond mixture until combined.
7. Pour into pan and bake 35 minutes. Torte will be very moist in the middle.
8. Transfer torte to a wire rack and cool completely in pan about 1 hour.
Once cool, remove from pan and top with optional toppings if desired.
Refrigerate left overs if whipped cream topping has been added. Does not need refrigeration if no topping has been added.

Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons

 

IMG_3050.JPG

Ingredients (makes 22-24 macaroons)

  • 3 cups unsweetened coconut (225 g /8 oz)
  • 4 large egg whites
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
  • ½ cup powdered Erythritol or
  • Swerve (80 g/ 2.8 oz)
  • 1 tsp sugar-free almond extract or
  • sugar-free vanilla extract
  • 100 g 90% dark chocolate, melted (3.5 oz)

 

Method

1. Place the shredded coconut on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Toast the coconut in the oven at 300 F/ 150 C for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool down.

2. Place the egg whites in a bowl and add a pinch of salt. Beat the egg whites until fluffy. Add the powdered Erythritol and beat until the they create soft peaks. Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons
To the bowl with the egg whites, add the toasted and cooled coconut. Finally, mix in the almond extract.

3. Using a spoon and your hands, create 22-24 small macaroons. Place them on the baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicon mat. Use two trays if needed. Easy Keto Coconut Macaroons
Bake the macaroons at 300 F/ 150 C (fan assisted) for 10 minutes, and then turn the temperature down to 130 C/ 265 F and bake for 20 more minutes.

4. Remove the macaroons from the oven and let them cool down on a cooling rack.

5. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a small saucepan filled with a cup of water over a medium heat. Once completely melted, remove from the heat and set aside to cool down. The chocolate should not be hot when you use it for coating.
Decorate the macaroons by dipping the bottom parts in melted dark chocolate. Place them back on the tray. Drizzle any leftover chocolate on top of the macaroons. Place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes or until set.
Tip: To help the chocolate solidify quickly, the melted chocolate should be cooled to room temperature before decorating. Placing the macaroons in the freezer for 10 minutes will also speed up the process.

CAULIFLOWER PIZZA BITES

Ingredients

Cauliflower-Pizza-Bites.jpg

  • 1 1/2 cups grated cauliflower (approximately 1/2 large cauliflower head)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic, 2 cloves
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 large egg whites
  • Salt & pepper, to taste (I used approximately 1/4 tsp each)
  • 1/4 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 6 basil leaves, chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs 
*The number one thing I can tell you is to strain the cauliflower as best as you can.
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking/cookie sheet with parchment paper and place baking racks on top. Spray the racks with non-stick spray.
  2. Start by cutting your cauliflower in half. Measurements are based on using a large head of cauliflower. Cut the leaves and end of the cauliflower. Cut the cauliflower into small florets and toss into a food processor and process until the cauliflower reaches a rice/mashed potato look. It should be processed fine. The finer it is, the better the end result will hold together.
  3. Scoop the cauliflower into a cheesecloth or cloth napkin
  4. Place the cauliflower into the center of the cheesecloth, pulled the edges up, twisted to close and squeezed as much liquid as I could out of the processed cauliflower.
  5. It should have the look of rice/mashed potatoes. Place the processed cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and cook for 4-6 minutes, stopping to stir halfway through.
  6. Once cooked, add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
  7. Using a tablespoon and a half tablespoon, scoop the bites into 1 1/2 tablespoons in size, and roll into balls. Place evenly apart on the prepared racks and bake for 20-23 minutes. At 20 minutes in, remove from the oven & rotate the bites. Place back into the oven for remaining 2-3 minutes.
