Vegan Keto Mini “Egg” Cups (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free)

As some of you may know, I’ve been writing a second cookbook this past year! This one will be a little different from my first cookbook in that there is a separate protein section that you can add to the salads, main meals and sides in kind of a “choose-your-own-adventure” style. There are a few other notable differences, but I’ll write a separate post about those when we’re closer to publication! For now, though, I wanted to share one of these protein-filled plant-forward keto-friendly recipes with all of you as it’s something that has been requested quite a bit: soy-free vegan keto mini quiche cups.

Needless to say, I’m not turning on the stove or the oven. I am, however in the mood for a nice chilly treat.

Vegan Keto Maple Walnut Milk

Vegan Keto Maple Walnut Milk

The other day, I wandered around Trader Joe’s with a friend of mine and we ended up finding their maple oat milk. Of course, it was pretty high in carbs and definitely not keto-friendly, but it got me thinking, and inspired me to try to make a maple-flavored vegan keto coffee creamer. After trying a few different nut milk bases, this vegan keto maple walnut milk was the winner.
