Coconut flour

Dairy-Free Keto Coffee Cake

Dairy-Free Keto Coffee Cake made with almond flour and coconut flour is a perfectly sweet, moist and fluffy treat! Enjoy a piece with your morning coffee or tea.

Evidenced by the many recipes for coffee cake on this site, it’s safe to say I have a bit of an obsession. 

Rich, fluffy, buttery, moist, subtly sweet and ultra cinnamony, who could possibly resist??

While my previous coffee cake recipes are all grain-free and paleo-friendly (and many include fun goodies like fresh fruit and different nuts and spices), this is the first low-carb coffee cake recipe I have posted! 

It is keto-friendly, sugar-free, and such a delight to share. 

…Or not share, which is what almost happened in my case, as I ate half of the cake during/after photographing it.

What can I say…my love for cinnamon knows no bounds.

Let’s chat all about this cake.

Keto Pecan Snowball Cookies

Keto Pecan Snowball Cookies made with almond flour, sugar-free sweetener and butter. This easy sugar-free cookie recipe is a healthier holiday treat!

 

Buttery, flaky shortbread-like cookies studded with little bits of pecans and rolled in powdered sweetener that happen to be sugar-free and grain-free? You’re going to LOVE these Keto Pecan Snowballs!

These keto snowballs are a similar concept to Russian Tea Cakes, Mexican Wedding Cakes, Italian Wedding Cookies, etc. They’re buttery lumps of soft yet crispy cookie with chopped nuts (in this case, pecans) mixed in and rolled in a dusting of powdered sugar (in this case, sugar-free).

There are many things I love about this style of cookie. They require very few ingredients, no eggs, and can easily be made in advance and frozen. 

In fact, you will need to freeze the cookie dough prior to baking it anyway, so if you’re looking for a.) make-ahead Christmas cookie recipes, and/or b.) cookie dough that can easily be made in bulk then baked from frozen, these may just be a great fit!

I have included a gluten-free version of this recipe using coconut flour and a gluten-free flour blend instead of tapioca flour if you do eat grains.

When two amazing bakery goodies join forces and the result is something supercalifragilisticexpialidocious..

That is this bread…

We combine the lemon concept with the blueberry theory for the ultimate healthy baked treat… and we never look back!

I enjoy this bread so much, I almost feel like all lemon breads should include blueberries and all blueberry breads should include lemons. Throw in some poppy seeds and now we’re just talking OVERSTIMULATION!

Avocado Chocolate Muffins (Paleo)

Grain-free Avocado Chocolate Muffins made with coconut flour, ripe avocados, coconut sugar, and cocoa powder are a gluten-free moist and fudgy treat! Plus, they are paleo friendly and can easily be made keto.

You know when you go into something having zero expectations, and come out of it feeling like a proper Greek Goddess?

That is how I felt after baking these muffins.

All the stars? Aligned.

Truth be told, these muffins did require two attempts, as the first batch turned out like brownies. Amazing, fudgy, sinfully delicious brownies, but still… brownies, not avocado muffins.

So reluctantly (insert sarcasm), I baked a second batch, and BOOM a muff was made.

Nothing makes you feel better about yourself than baking chocolate muffins out of overly ripe, otherwise trash-worthy avocados.

The greatest part about this recipe is it uses those unwanted avocados that should truly not be used in any other way lest you’re a glutton for punishment.

You don’t necessarily want the avocados to be brown, grody and rotten, but this is a good place for those super mushy, not amazing tasting ripe avocados that you wouldn’t dare leave raw.

Let’s bullet point this out.

These avocado muffins are:

  • Gluten-free and grain-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Oil-free
  • Sweetened naturally with coconut sugar
  • Super moist
  • Ultra fudgy
  • The browniest muffin you’ll ever eat.

Paleo Avocado Chocolate Muffins made with coconut flour and coconut sugar - dairy-free, refined sugar-free, absolutely delicious!
