KETO RECIPE: Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


Life is just better with cookies isn’t it?! Here’s my favorite recipe for puffy, chewy chocolate chip cookies. You can use any keto-friendly chocolate chip or chunks of super dark chocolate. You can also add nuts if you would like, chopped macadamia nuts are my favorite!

DIRECTIONS

1.     Preheat oven to 350

2.     Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set aside.

3.     In a saucepan or in the microwave, melt the butter. Place in a room-temperature container and let it set in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to cool down.

4.     In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, salt, erythritol, and cream of tartar. Stir to combine.

5.     In a small bowl, combine the egg, vanilla, and cooled butter. Whisk together.

6.     Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine everything together with a large spoon or rubber scraper, then fold in the chocolate chips.

7.     Scoop out 2 to 3” mounds of cookie dough and place on the prepared baking sheet. I like to flatten mine a bit.

8.     Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack for an additional 15 minutes.

9.     These will make puffy chocolate chip cookies with a chewy center. I absolutely love them cold, so I generally store in the refrigerator.

KETO RECIPE: Gummies


Missing gummies in your life?! Make your own keto gummies! These are so super simple and you can have fun with them by using different molds and flavors of sugar free jello. I like to add heavy whipping cream, which is totally optional but adds a nice creaminess. Full fat coconut cream also works if you are dairy free. It makes 24 little bears and the whole batch only have 4g of total carbs.

INGREDIENTS

• 1/2 cup of HWC or coconut cream
• 1, .3oz box of sugar-free Jell-O, any flavor
• 1 tbsp unflavored gelatin

DIRECTIONS

1. In small saucepan, heat the HWC over medium heat
2. Add Jell-O and gelatin and stir until combined
3. Use a dropper to place mixture into silicone molds
4. Refrigerate for an hour, unmold the gummies

Store gummies in airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

Know Foods: Eat a Better Cookie Event.jpg

I was super excited to be invited to speak on a panel at Know Foods first ever Cookies & Coffee Expert Panel discussion at We Work in Manhattan Beach. I was joined on the panel by Ryan Plowery from Ketogenic.com, Suzanne Ryan from @ketokarma, Victoria Field from The Metabolic Health Summit, and Yemeni Mesa the CEO of Know Foods was the moderator. 

Know Foods: Eat a Better Cookie Event.jpg

I can blab on for hours about keto so I was super excited to join this group to answer questions from the in person and online audience. Know Foods is planning on taking these events around the country to help keto and keto curious people connect.

Victoria and Yemeni are my neighbors in the South Bay part of Los Angeles and I had met Ryan before at Expo West, but I'd never met Suzanne before so it was super fun getting to chat with her about keto, mom life, and more! 

All of the people on this panel will also be at the Metabolic Health Summit at the end of January in Long Beach which is going to be an AMAZING conference where science meets society. It will feature all your favorite keto Instagrammers along with the smartest doctors and researchers on the planet who are studying keto for medical applications. I cannot wait for this event and I am super excited to be one of the keynote speakers! You can get your tickets here. Believe me you do not want to miss it!

NUSH! KETO FRIENDLY SNACK CAKES!

I'm always excited to find new keto friendly options for sweet treats, so I couldn't wait to try these Nush snack cakes. They come in 6 flavors and vary from 2 net carbs per cake to 4 net carbs. My personal favorites are Blueberry and Carrot Spice Cake, which is no surprise because those are my favorite flavors in everything! All the flavors though are great and I love the moist texture of the cakes. 

 

I had actually tried one flavor of Nush awhile back because it came in one of the keto snack boxes, but I was pleasantly surprised that they totally changed the texture of them and now I am completely hooked! The best part for me is that they are the perfect single serving and they provide a fun palette to get creative with what you top them with. They can be a fun dessert where everyone decorates their own or a perfect breakfast on the go! 

 

You can purchase the cakes by individual flavor or you can buy a variety pack! My discount code below will get you 10% off your first purchase! CLICK HERE.

KETO RECIPE: Easy Zevia Floats


If you want a super easy summer treat look no further than these 2 SUPER easy recipes for a keto take on a root beer float. Zevia is Stevia sweetened soda you can find at grocery stores, I usually buy it at Whole Foods and Sprouts. It comes in typical cola and root beer flavors, but also a bunch of others! Today I saw Grapefruit Citrus and got so excited because I love all things grapefruit and obviously it is not keto, so with this drink I can still enjoy it!

KETO RECIPE: STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE MOUSSE

I love this super easy dessert that any dairy eating, cheesecake loving person will devour! It takes 5 minutes to make and can easily be customized to include your favorite flavors! 

This is one of my favorite recipes from my cookbook, The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.

KETO RECIPE: STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE MOUSSE by Jen Fisch via Keto In The City

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ounces of Cream Cheese 
  • 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream
    •  This can be unsweetened full fat Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, or Heavy Whipping Cream.  Whatever you have in the house is fine! Today I used Califia Farms Coconut Almond Milk, but usually I use Heavy Whipping Cream. 
  • 1 scoop of Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder 
    • This ingredient is optional, but justs boosts up the healthy fats even more and is flavorless. 
  • 1 teaspoon of Swerve natural sweetener or 1 drop of liquid stevia
  • 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Strawberries
    • You could also use a handful of blackberries or raspberries instead
The first 5 ingredients in the food processor. Strawberries get incorporated in the next step. 

The first 5 ingredients in the food processor. Strawberries get incorporated in the next step. 

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Break up the cream cheese block into smaller pieces so that it is evenly distributed around the blade. Add the cream, sweetener, vanilla, and MCT Powder. 
  2. Mix together on high. I usually stop and stir twice with a small rubber scraper to make sure everything is mixed well. 
  3. Slice up 4 strawberries and place them in the food processor with the cheesecake mixture. Again mix until combined and use rubber scraper to incorporate everything. 
  4. Divide strawberry cheesecake mixture between 2  vessels.  Then I like to slice up additional strawberries and put them on top.
  5. You can eat this right away or chill it for an hour before eating, it is delicious either way! 

INGREDIENT TIP- Set the cream cheese out on the counter for 20 minutes or so working with it. If the mixture still seems thick, mix in a little more cream to help it incorporate. 

You can customize this dessert in so many ways! I have added lemon zest in the past for nice freshness!
