Low Carb Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Low Carb Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

I've been making a lot of sweets lately, and I am starting to get tired of them. Weird huh? I guess I have no sweet tooth anymore, I much prefer the savory side of things. I wanted to make something different, and stumbled on a recipe for some spicy cookies. Sounded good to me, as I know chocolate and spice can pair up really well together - let's just say these turned out great.

This may be a fun activity with some friends or older kids. Most minty desserts get that burst of fresh flavor from using extract, but I love adding ...

Keto Lemon Sugar Poppy Seed Scones

Keto Lemon Sugar Poppy Seed Scones

I have never been a lover of the dryness of a traditional scone, but this modified keto scone is the perfect balance between cakey and crusty! I decided to make this scone different from the other keto scone recipes floating around the internet because I wanted to simulate something more like a muffin center with a crusty exterior. For those of us who love coffee and a scone, it hits the spot. For the ones who don’t drink coffee, it’s still soft enough to enjoy without a hot beverage to ...
