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!

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.
