Mini Low Carb Apple Pie

Mini Low Carb Apple Pie

Oh my god, guys – apple pie. Low carb apple pie. Mini low carb apple pie! I KNOW. I really can’t contain my excitement about this one. Pie is by far my favorite dessert, and apple pie at that. So, naturally, with Thanksgiving right around…

Crazy Easy Low Carb Cranberry Sauce

Crazy Easy Low Carb Cranberry Sauce

With Thanksgiving (in America!) getting ever closer, it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving menus! As a New England girl, I kind of feel it’s my duty to include cranberries in as many Thanksgiving-themed items as possible. To accomplish this, I’ve made a delicious low…

Low Carb Vegan Spinach Pie

Low Carb Vegan Spinach Pie

Low carb spinach pie sounds like something Popeye would endorse wholeheartedly, and with good reason – it is delicious! This recipe was born of an intense desire for spanikopita, but with the awareness that I probably do not have the patience to figure out some sort of vegan keto phyllo dough (you can read “probably” as “definitely” there). So, armed with a gluten free, nut free pie crust recipe and a fair amount of stubbornness, I set off to at least make a vegan keto spinach pie. This pie (or quiche, or whatever you want to call it) is perfect for brunch and can be enjoyed hot or cold.  (more…)

Low Carb Vegan Nanaimo Bars

Looking for a vegan keto dessert? Of course you are! When I first started keto all those years ago, all I wanted was sugar-free dessert things to make myself think I was eating cookies, or brownies or frosting. Now that I’ve been fat adapted for…

Vegan Keto Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Vegan Keto Pumpkin Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Any season is the right season for pumpkin spice cake, especially a vegan keto pumpkin spice cake that is so easy, and so delicious. I think the hardest part of making this sugar-free treat was waiting for it to be cool enough to frost. This…

Low Carb Vegan Cookie Dough

Low Carb Vegan Cookie Dough

Way back in the day, when I ate things like gluten and sugar, I was obsessed with cookie dough. As a child, I would sneak spoonfuls of it when my mom made cookies. In my teen years, I would buy whole tubes of it, just to snack on. In fact, one time I bought a 5lb tub of cookie dough, and kept it in my dorm freezer, so I could have a spoonful as a snack whenever I felt like it. The obsession was real. Of course, cookie dough isn’t exactly the type of thing that’s compatible with a low carb, gluten-free diet. So, this vegan keto cookie dough was born.

I’m actually really excited about this recipe for a few reasons: It’s vegan – I’m sure you guys know how hard it is to find vegan keto recipes! It’s detox city – Brazil nuts supply heaps of selenium, which is an antioxidant and heavy metal…

Low Carb No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

Low Carb No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

Okay, so it’s not anywhere near fall yet, but I’m really craving pumpkin right now. Any why not? Pumpkin is packed with vitamin A, B vitamins and potassium. Plus, it tastes like fall, which is a nice break from the 90 degree death box that…

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake Protein Bars

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake Protein Bars

I really enjoy store-bought protein bars but a recently discovered almond allergy has taken those off the table. So, I’ve been trying to make my own protein bars for a long time now, and every once in a while I’ll get close…and then something will be off. This is the by far the best version I’ve come up with – and it’s actually the easiest!

The homemade version of these is softer (needs to be refrigerated when stored), and not so chewy. It is, however, super delicious and only contains 2 net carbs per serving!
