Vegan Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Pumpkins

Vegan Keto Peanut Butter Chocolate Pumpkins

  Happy Halloween, everyone! Halloween is hands-down my favorite holiday of the year. I just love every aspect of it…except for the candy. I have yet to find a commercially-produced vegan keto candy that doesn’t upset my stomach. So, like with most things, any Halloween…

Low Carb Vegan Soda Bread (gluten free, nut free, soy free)

Low Carb Vegan Soda Bread (gluten free, nut free, soy free)

St. Patrick’s day is upon us, and we make a really big deal of that in the Boston area. Usually this means eating corned beef and cabbage, drinking a lot of Guinness and baking soda bread. It also usually means listening to Nana Pat wax…

Low Carb Gluten Free Vegan Corned Tempeh & Cabbage

Low Carb Gluten Free Vegan Corned Tempeh & Cabbage

Growing up near Boston with an Irish Catholic mother meant that every St. Patrick’s Day, we ate corned beef and cabbage. Yes, I know this isn’t a traditional Irish dish, but it’s certainly become an Irish-American classic, and it’s what many of us here stateside remember when we think of Paddy’s Day. So, this year when I polled all of you on Instagram to see if you would be interested in a St. Patrick’s Day dish, I knew I would end up making a vegan keto corned “beef” and cabbage.

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

Low Carb Vegan Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

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 cashew eggnog and making cookies. This, my friends, is how you get poorly decorated low carb vegan…

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…

Lofthouse Style Low Carb Vegan Sugar Cookies

Lofthouse Style Low Carb Vegan Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are my favorite type of cookie (well, those and snickerdoodles), but as the name implies, they’re not all that keto friendly. So, I really wanted to come up with a low carb vegan sugar cookie that I could enjoy during the holidays. Now,…

Low Carb Vegan Pumpkin “Cheddar” Risotto

Low Carb Vegan Pumpkin “Cheddar” Risotto

One of my favorite things about fall (well, in addition to basically everything else about fall) is that pumpkin recipes become totally acceptable. I’ve been working through a can of pumpkin puree over the past few days and decided that instead of making something sweet today, I’d take a stab a a low carb vegan pumpkin risotto recipe. After all, sometimes you just want to make a vegan keto rice dish.

I had pretty high hopes for this low carb risotto, but it really exceeded my expectations!  I’m definitely going to make this for Thanksgiving this year, and probably a bunch more times before that. Vegetarian keto recipes are hard to come by, especially fall specific vegan keto recipes, so this is getting a gold star for sure.

Low Carb White Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Low Carb White Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

So, we’re all pretty aware of how delicious the combination of chocolate and peanut butter can be, but there seem to be significantly fewer fans of white chocolate and peanut butter. This is actually pretty understandable – white chocolate can be cloyingly sweet, almost overpowering.…
