Keto Almond Poppyseed Bread Recipe

Keto Almond Poppyseed Bread Recipe

One of my favorite sweet foods for breakfast when I was living in Mississippi was the Almond Poppyseed Bread that the Mennonites would sell at roadside stands. This was one of their biggest hits, and I swear that everyone in town ate it for breakfast […]

Keto Loaded Jalapeno Skins

Keto Loaded Jalapeno Skins

There are so many great appetizers out there, yet so few are available as a Keto dish. Some of my favorite “Bar Foods” from the past are Loaded Potato Skins and Jalapeño Poppers, we’re talking early 2000’s TGIFridays and Applebee’s. I don’t really go to […]

Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies are probably the most classic of all cookie flavors, and perhaps the go-to for most people. The traditional chocolate chip cookie recipes are off-limits for people who live the Keto Lifestyle, so there have to be some adaptations made to make the recipe keto-friendly so that we can enjoy them more often than just those days that we cave into the cravings. While we find that the texture of the chocolate chip cookie isn’t EXACTLY like a Nestle Tollhouse cookie, they sure are pretty dang good.

Our kids always start gathering around the oven when they smell these cookies baking, and they sit down at the table to wait for them to come out of the oven. We always eat these things fresh out of the oven, and rarely have any leftovers. The recipe below will yield 16 cookies, so plan accordingly if you want to make more or less. To make less you will just need to figure our how to put less egg in it so you might want to whisk the egg and divide it if that’s the case. Or just make the dough ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze it for later if you want to make a bunch at once.

In this recipe we use Almond Flour, but you could make these entirely with Coconut Flour if you can’t eat almonds. We prefer Almond Flour, because we like the fluffy texture of the almonds, but these taste really good with coconut flour too.

Ease of Preparation: Easy

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cooking Time: 16 Minutes

Total Time: 26 Minutes

Ingredients:





Instructions:

  1. Put Softened Butter into a Medium Mixing Bowl, and beat with a hand mixer or similar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add in the Pyure Sweetener, Vanilla Extract, Egg, and Salt and continue to mix until even.
  3. Add in the Almond Flour and begin mixing. Slowly add in 1/2 Cup of Almond Flour at a time to mix evenly.
  4. Sprinkle the Lily’s Chocolate into the mixture and fold with a spatula until evenly distributed to your liking.
  5. Pre-Heat Oven to 375*F
  6. Place Parchment Paper onto Cookie Sheet and scoop cookies out with either a scooper or with a spoon. Each cookie will contain 1 & 1/2 Tablespoons of Dough.
  7. Space the cookie dough apart evenly to place about 8 cookies per sheet (15 cookies total on two sheets), unless you have a Mega Cookie Sheet.
  8. Place cookies in the oven for at least 12 minutes, but start to watch them around that time. We find that they are baked to our own liking around the 15-16 minute mark, but you can take them out as early as you want depending on how gooey you want them.
  9. Set on counter to cool before eating, as chocolate will come out molten hot.

Optional: Feel free to add some crushed Walnuts to the cookies to when you add the Chocolate Chips, as those make them even more delicious!

Keto Biscuits And Gravy Recipe

Keto Biscuits And Gravy Recipe

Sometimes we feel like having some Southern Style comfort food for breakfast, especially on the weekends. While this recipe may take a little bit of time to prepare (assuming that you don’t already have some of our Keto Country Biscuits prepared and laying around), it is totally worth it and we dare say it tastes like the real deal.

Growing up as a young kid in the South gave me an appreciation for thick and satisfying comfort foods, and that may have been part of the reason that I was a bigger kid in elementary school. I developed some of my cravings, and unfortunately some of my eating habits down there that I carried with me for the rest of of my life so far. Now that I have switched to eating a ketogenic diet I sometimes have those cravings but don’t want to cave into the cravings and cheat on my diet.

Truth be told, this recipe tastes so good that I have actually begun to prefer the taste of it over the good old fashioned country gravy made with wheat flour. It’s just that satisfying!

Check out this recipe for Keto-friendly Biscuits and Gravy and be sure to leave me a comment about your thoughts! What are your favorite modifications to the recipe that make it taste more like the biscuits and gravy you grew up with too?




 
 
 

KETO BISCUITS AND GRAVY

Keto Country Sausage Gravy - Nutrition Label

Ease of Preparation: Moderate (Sausage Gravy is totally easy though)

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cooking Time: 15 Minutes

Total Time: 20 Minutes

Ingredients:



 
 
 





Instructions:

  1. First you will want to prepare our Keto Country Biscuits ahead of time, click for recipe.
  2. In a non-stick skillet on High heat add all of the Sausage to the pan and separate with a spatula
  3. Season the meat with a light amount of Salt and Black Pepper
  4. Sear or Brown all of the sausage to insure it is cooked properly before adding the remaining ingredients
  5. Without draining any of the grease from the pan, after the meat is cooked turn the heat down to a Medium temperature
  6. Add in the Cream Cheese and stir around while it melts
  7. After the Cream Cheese has mostly melted and been stirred evenly throughout the sausage, pour in the 1 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream.
  8. Add additional Black Pepper to your liking while simmering the mixture until reduced to the thickness you desire.
  9. Turn off the heat and scoop out the gravy mixture over our Keto Country Biscuits and serve warm

NOTE: This will produce a rather thick and hearty gravy, which is our personal preference. If you prefer a thinner gravy you can add tap water in small amounts to the mixture to thin it out. If you make it too thin, you can thicken it back up with Xanham Gum if you happen to have any.
