Vegan Keto Eggnog Bread Pudding (gluten-free, nut-free)

Vegan Keto Eggnog Bread Pudding (gluten-free, nut-free)

Hello, friends! It’s late December and I hope you’re feeling as festive as I am. “Festive” to me means baking vegan keto versions of all my favorite holiday treats and this week I’m tackling bread pudding. I know what you must be thinking – “but…

Low Carb Vegan Kołaczki (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free)

Low Carb Vegan Kołaczki (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free)

Oh, look, I’m finally posting Christmas things just a few days before Christmas. I’m the worst. Because my dad’s family is Polish, I grew up eating a lot of Polish foods, especially at Christmas time. These cookies are  a staple from my childhood. They’re called…

Vegan Keto Peppermint Bark Fat Bombs (nut-free, soy-free, paleo, low-lectin, low-FODMAP)

Vegan Keto Peppermint Bark Fat Bombs (nut-free, soy-free, paleo, low-lectin, low-FODMAP)

I really like mint and chocolate, and one of my favorite wintery treats used to be that peppermint bark that was basically a layer of mint-flavored dark chocolate, covered by a layer of white chocolate and then topped with crushed peppermint candies. Since absolutely no part of the original candy is keto-friendly (or vegan, for that matter), I thought I’d make my own version to satisfy that craving in a sugar-free way.

Vegan Keto Cinnamon Buns (nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Cinnamon Buns (nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free)

Cinnamon rolls are one of those treats that I always crave, especially on Christmas morning. When I grew up, my mom would make me and my brother a can of Pillsbury buns every Christmas and I thought, why shouldn’t I still have cinnamon buns? So,…

Vegan Keto Gingerbread Muffins (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Gingerbread Muffins (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

It’s that time of year again where my apartment is super cold, and the best way to warm it seems to be with baking. Not only does a morning of baking make the kitchen slightly toasty, but it also makes my entire apartment spell amazing.…

Egg-free, Dairy-free Vegan Keto “Eggnog”

Egg-free, Dairy-free Vegan Keto “Eggnog”

As you have probably figured out from the multitude of pumpkin, apple and other fall-themed recipes that I keep posting, I really love fall. It’s definitely my favorite season – cozy sweaters, warm beverages, beautiful scenery (I live in a pretty heavily wooded area of New England, and realize how spoiled I am) – what’s not to love? Unfortunately, this lasts about three weeks before everything gets cold and gray and you really have to motivate yourself to get out of bed in the morning. Just me? Never mind then… The good news is that late fall/early winter is the perfect time to start making deliciously spiced drinks. While hot chocolate is my stand-by winter beverage, it’s rapidly giving way to my new obsession: vegan keto eggnog. (more…)

Low Carb Dairy Free Chocolate Fondue

Low Carb Dairy Free Chocolate Fondue

So, I’m not typically someone who gets all giddy at the idea of Valentine’s Day, but I do really like cheesy romantic-themed things, like a little fondue pot for two, with those tiny skewers and the little tea light to keep things warm. I actually…

Low Carb Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Cookies (gluten-free, nut-free)

Low Carb Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Cookies (gluten-free, nut-free)

Let me paint you a word picture – imagine a grown woman, wearing a reindeer onesie and listening to Wham’s “Last Christmas” while dancing around her kitchen, drinking vegan keto eggnog and making cookies. This, my friends, is how you get poorly decorated low carb…

Low Carb Vegan Linzer Cookies

Low Carb Vegan Linzer Cookies

I think cookies are really the ultimate Christmas food, so for the past week, I’ve been thinking of all the low carb Christmas cookies I want to bake this year! The other day, I made low carb gingerbread cookies, and last night, I pulled out my little Linzer cookie cutters – and low carb vegan Linzer cookies were born!

Linzer cookies are a redux of Linzertorte – a traditional Austrian torte named for the city of Linz. This torte is typically made with crust of nuts and flour, and filled with raspberries. I know. Sounds like heaven.  (more…)

Low Carb Vegan Pecan Swirl Cookies

Low Carb Vegan Pecan Swirl Cookies

Oh, the weather outside is frightful! Okay, so, it’s not really frightful in the least bit. But, it is chilly out, and chilly weather always makes me want to bake thing, like cookies. I’ve always loved pinwheel cookies, which is irritating, as they are the most…
