Low Carb Macadamia Nut Brownies

Low Carb Macadamia Nut Brownies

I've been making so many sweets lately that I had to take a bit of a break and allow the leftovers to be eaten before making more. Being on a keto diet, it's hard for me to keep eating sweets, even if they are low carb, because I find my cravings start to come back after I eat them. Low and behold, everything is gone and I wanted to make something I haven't done in a while.I settled on brownies because I haven't really gotten around to making a cake, and I have only been making cookies ...

With the sweetness of the dough finishing it off, it's an extremely balanced flavor profile - ...

Lemon & Rosemary Low Carb Shortbread

Lemon & Rosemary Low Carb Shortbread

Can I really call these shortbread cookies? Well yes. The consistency is pretty crumbly, similar to shortbread. The sweetness aspect, however, isn't much like them at all. Think tea-cakes when you take a bite into this crumbly goodness.The second you put these in your mouth, it's hit with a refreshing wave of lemon. Hints of salt might come through before the rosemary finally takes the first strike. When it does, the herbaceousness will fill your mouth for only a moment before the lemon ...

White Chocolate Bark With A Twist

White Chocolate Bark With A Twist

I've never been a big fan of the flavor of coconut (I know, I know), so fat bombs have never held much appeal to me. Then I discovered that coconut butter (also called coconut cream) has less of that coconut taste. To make things even better, I discovered cacao butter. Cacao butter is the fat extracted from the cacao been. It smells like chocolate, but is an off white color.As soon as I started working with it, I realized this would be my ticket to making white chocolate. Because of the ...

Creamy Delicious Keto Eggnog

Growing up I never really liked eggnog. That slimy, thick consistency was never something that I wanted to like or could bring myself to like.This one, however, will be a hit - it's thick, creamy, delicious, and will knock your socks off!
