Delectable Butterscotch Glazed Donuts That Delight – Low Carb, Gluten Free

Butterscotch glazed low carb donuts

These donuts are a new version from my Plain Donuts With Butterscotch Icing, Low Carb, Keto – are butterscotch glazed, low carb, keto friendly, wheat free, gluten free, no added sugar, and utterly delicious!

Unlike the old ones, these are NO SUGAR ADDED and less coconutty.

Ingredients

Doughnuts

Icing

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm the coconut oil so it becomes liquid. I throw the butter in a dish during the preheating oven and as it becomes liquid, add the coconut. Then mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Fill each well of the donut mold up to the just below the top of the center hole piece (like these Wilton 2105-1620 6 Cavity Nonstick Donut Pans (2 Pack) from Amazon). Bake for 15-18 minutes then take out.

Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper under a cooling rack. Turn the molds over to place the donuts on the cooling rack OR directly on parchment paper.

Icing

In a small saucepan over medium heat, throw in the butter. Once the butter is melted, stir in the sugar and whisk for a minute or two until well blended. Next, whisk in half of the cream (1/6 cup). Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to medium-low and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir often with the whisk and you will notice that the texture will change slightly as the mixture cooks.

Turn off heat and remove the pot from the stove. Stir in the remaining 1/6 cup heavy cream, bourbon vanilla, and salt.

Immediately pour the butterscotch sauce into a small glass jar.

Spoon the butterscotch on the donuts. Eat hot (BEST) or let them cool and enjoy!

Best Blueberry Pancakes

Best Blueberry Panckaes

Who doesn’t love pancakes? How about a pancake that provides a wide range of nutrition for your body and still tastes delicious? Try these best blueberry pancakes that I make for my family! This recipe makes 8 medium, medium-large pancakes.

Ingredients

Get a medium to medium-large mixing bowl out. Mix the dry ingredients first, then add in the we ingredients, and stir in the blueberries last. Fire up your favorite griddle or pan (my favorite for pancakes is this All-Clad Griddle found on Amazon and elsewhere) on medium. Use a spoon to ladle out the batter into the pancakes. Wait until they start to turn brown around the edges, turn the heat down to low, and flip them. Let cook for another 2-4 minutes and serve!

My family can’t get enough of these bluberry pancakes. And for syrup, if you are looking for low carb, we use just a little of the Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup. And if you like butter, remember to get pasture raised or French/Swiss/Italian A2 protein butter.

And if you didn’t notice, these are low carb for those who are type 1 or type 2 diabetic, on a ketogenic diet (or Atkins), or simply looking to cut down on simple carbs which science is showing has seriously negative health effects.

Must Eat Sugar Free Cheesecake

The finished Must Eat Sugar Free Cheesecake with a piece already gone
The finished Must Eat Sugar Free Cheesecake with a piece already gone

Introduction

I am a complete fiend for cheesecake. But we all know that it isn’t healthy to eat more than on a rare occasion. That’s why I decided to create this Must Eat Sugar Free cheesecake!

The crust is a delicious, buttery, nutty flavor. And the filling is real cream cheese but no sugar at all! Further, I have some protein added in so the whole thing isn’t just fat and a few carbs.

By now you know that I think I’ve found the perfect sugar replacement, Lakanto Monkfruit/Erythritol sweetener. A one for one replacement for sugar, although I use less than a normal recipe. That is why I call this Sugar Free, I add no sugar other than naturally occurring sugars in the ingredients. You’ll be happy to know that a normal slice of cheesecake has 32g carbs and 27g sugar whereas this recipe has 12g carbs and 5g sugar.

Plus, why put on the pounds with a heavy carb crust when you can feed your microbiota in your gut with excellent prebiotics? You’ll like the low lectin (an anti-nutrient, see Dr. Steven Gundry’s “The Plant Paradox“) and lower carb ingredients which still make for a delicious crust.

I made one cheesecake without strawberries and one with. My preference is with the strawberries in the cheesecake, but you are welcome to remove them or replace them with blueberries or chocolate (sugar free or low sugar, of course) or whatever. Feel free to experiment!

Crust

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-large mixing bowl, pour in all of the dry ingredients. Then melt the butter and ghee in a container (microwave or oven). Pour remaining ingredients into the bowl while stirring. Grab a 9 inch round baking pan, either springform or regular round (like this pair from Ovenstuff/Amazon) and press the mixture into the pan. Place the pan into the oven for 12 minutes or so, then take out to cool for at least 5 minutes before pouring in the filling.

Filling

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 bricks, 28 ounces organic, pasture raised cream cheese
  • 1 scoop collagelatin (Bulletproof Collagelatin is what I use)
  • 1 cup sugar replacement (Lakanto Sweetener as I mentioned above)
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • Juice squeezed from half of a lemon
  • 3 large organic, pasture raised eggs
  • 1/4 cup organic strawberries, diced

Directions

Turn up oven to 375 degrees. Plunk the cream cheese in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Pour in the sweetener, vanilla, collagelatin, and lemon juice. Turn the mixer on medium and break the eggs one at a time in to the bowl. Turn up to high for 10 seconds. Turn off and scrape everything back down into the bowl. Turn the mixer on low and slowly pour in the strawberries. Turn on high again for 10 seconds. Turn off the mixer and gently pour the filling on the cooled crust, smooth the top. Bake for 50 minutes. Take out of the oven and place into the refrigerator for a good four hours to cool and firm.

Then eat, enjoy, and share with your friends guilt-free!

Bagels That Won’t Make You Fat – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free

Bagels, low carb, keto, gluten free

Introduction

Who doesn’t love a delicious bagel for breakfast? Maybe with cream cheese, some lox, and thinly sliced onion. Yum!

The problem is that bagels, while incredibly delicious and wonderful to eat, are shockingly high in carbohydrates (carbs) because of the refined wheat flour. A plain old bagel has roughly 50 grams of carbs! Go for one of the flavored bagels and you can be heading toward 100 grams of carbs.

While carbs in and of themselves are not bad, there is now overwhelming evidence that refined carbs like flour and sugar are really bad in anything other than very small amounts. And a bagel is not a small amount.

I spent a little time experimenting and came up with this delicious bagel that is really easy to make. Plus it has good fats, protein (especially important if you are getting the exercise you should), and very little bit of carbs from a healthy source.

This recipe makes a dozen bagels.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Fill each well of the donut mold up to the just below the top of the center hole piece (like these Wilton 2105-1620 6 Cavity Nonstick Donut Pans (2 Pack) from Amazon). Bake for 25 minutes then take out.

Let cool in the mold for 5-10 minutes then they are ready to serve or store!

Nearly Perfect Sandwich Bread – Low Carb, Gluten Free

Sandwich Bread Sliced

Introduction

As you’ve seen my previous recipes with cheesy, herb bread and banana bread, we like bread. But we don’t like the high carbs and high glycemic index of most breads. Yet we love sandwiches.

So, here is a nearly perfect sandwich bread! Very low carb, ketogenic (fires up your metabolism), gluten free, and dairy free!

And finally a balance between savory and sweet that both my wife and kids enjoy.

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a mixer, a little parchment paper, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 14 slices (give or take depending on how thick you slice) of sandwich bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.Then mix the dry ingredients plus the eggs in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Warm the coconut oil for a minute in the microwave until melted. Then mix in the oils.I like to mix a minute or two at high speed to let the eggs rise as much as they can to lighten the mixture. Pour into a bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 45 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 15 minutes to cool before slicing!

With this sandwich bread, prepare yourself for a much more fulfilling, satisfying, and guilt-free sandwich experience!

Shockingly Delicious Low Carb, Gluten Free, Banana Bread

Shockingly Delicious Low Carb, Gluten Free, Banana Bread

Introduction

In my house, we are trying to eliminate bread. You’ve seen my cheesy, savory, herb bread. But, my kids prefer something a little sweeter.

Not to disappoint, here is a very healthy, reduced carb, gluten free, banana bread!

My kids love it just plain, with a little butter, or made into a whole sandwich with meat and cheese, or whatever you normally put on a sandwich. Because there is no added sugar, the only sugar and the vast majority of the carbs come from the bananas themselves. So, for better fiber, prebiotic, and lower carb, go with a greener banana. I like to use two on the greener side and one on the riper side.

This is definitely not a dairy-free recipe, so those who are vegan or have a dairy allergy, you’ll need to use all almond flour and add a 1/3 cup coconut oil in place of the butter. I have tested it that way and it is delicious, too!

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a mixer, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 20 slices of banana bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.Then mix the dry ingredients plus the eggs in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Warm the coconut oil and butter for a minute or two in the microwave until melted. Then mix in the oil and butter. Pour into a bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 10 minutes to cool before slicing!

Nutrition Info

From MyFitnessPal:

NOTE: The greener the banana, the lower the sugar count. I use 2 on the green side and one ripe, so my banana bread is actually lower carb than this generic sugar/carb count on bananas.

Cheesy, Savory, Herb Bread – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free

Introduction

Like many of you, my gorgeous wife Amy prefers savory over sweet. You’ve seen my Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and Better Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten-Free. and keto chocolate donuts. And now savory, cheesy, herb bread!

This is amazingly creamy, flavorful, and satisfying bread. We use it for making sandwiches or just eating plain. It is ultra-low carb, making it good for people on a keto diet, Type 1 diabetics, Type 2 diabetics, and those who just want a healthier lifestyle. Further, these are gluten-free and use coconut flour and MCT oil, making for a quickening of one’s metabolism, according to the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Center.

This is definitely not a dairy-free recipe, so those who are vegan or have a dairy allergy, you’ll need to use fake cheese instead of the cheddar I use. Although I haven’t tested that combo to see how it turns out.

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a food processor, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 20 slices of bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Use the shredding blade in your food processor to shred the cheese. Then remove that blade and use the dual semi-sharp mixing blade. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Turn on the processor for a minute or two to fully blend the ingredients. Take a bread pan and line it with parchment paper. Then dole the dough into the bread pan, spreading it evenly. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 10 minutes to cool before slicing!

Plain Donuts With Butterscotch Icing, Low Carb, Keto

Plain Donuts With Butterscotch Icing, Low Carb, Keto

Introduction

I now know how much we all love doughnuts (or donuts). The feedback from my low carb, keto, chocolate doughnuts has been phenomenal. But, I also know many people with chocolate sensitivity or an outright allergy.

I spent a little time experimenting and came up with this great combo: a plain, keto, gluten-free, ulta low-carb donut, plus the least unhealthy butterscotch icing I could find.

See, the problem with butterscotch is that its base is brown sugar. None of the sugar substitutes are good at melting and caramelizing like real sugar. But I found the next best thing over at The Healthy Home Economist.

This recipe makes a dozen donuts and 100 or so servings of butterscotch for those donuts (or other delicious uses).

Ingredients

Doughnuts

Icing

  • 1/2 cup organic dark coconut sugar (lower carb and lower glycemic than brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup organic heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup organic butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 tsp finely ground salt
  • 2 tsp pure organic bourbon vanilla

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm the coconut oil so it becomes liquid. I throw it in the microwave for 60 seconds and then throw the butter in and microwave another 30 second. Then mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Fill each well of the donut mold up to the just below the top of the center hole piece (like these Wilton 2105-1620 6 Cavity Nonstick Donut Pans (2 Pack) from Amazon). Bake for 15-18 minutes then take out.

Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper under a cooling rack. Turn the molds over to place the donuts on the cooling rack.

Icing

In a small saucepan over medium heat, throw in the butter. Once the butter is melted, stir in the sugar and whisk for a minute or two until well blended. Next, whisk in half of the cream (1/4 cup). Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to medium-low and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir often with the whisk and you will notice that the texture will change slightly as the mixture cooks.

Turn off heat and remove the pot from the stove. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup heavy cream, bourbon vanilla, and salt.

Immediately pour the butterscotch sauce into a small glass jar.

Spoon the butterscotch on the donuts. Eat hot or let them cool and enjoy!

Low Carb, Keto, Chocolate Doughnuts

Ethan's Chocolate Keto Doughnuts

Introduction

Who doesn’t love a fresh, delicious doughnut (or donut)? I sure do, but can’t stand all the unhealthy ingredients and massive amounts of sugar causing damage to my body, let alone my kids.

Here is an incredibly delicious, and thoroughly healthy take on doughnuts for Chanukah. That’s right, doughnuts are part of the Hanukkah tradition for many Jews since the oil in the menorah is the miracle that lasted eight days, we eat oily foods like donuts and latkes to commemorate the rededication of the Temple!

These are gluten free, low carb, ketogenic, almost dairy free (easy to change to fully dairy free), sweet, healthy, and delicious. Plus they only take 30 minutes from start to finish.

Ingredients

Doughnuts

Icing

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm the coconut oil so it becomes liquid. I throw it in the microwave for 30 – 60 seconds. Then mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Fill each well of the donut mold up to the just below the top of the center hole piece (like these Wilton 2105-1620 6 Cavity Nonstick Donut Pans (2 Pack) from Amazon). Bake for 15-18 minutes then take out.

While baking, whisk together the icing ingredients in a small bowl. The cacao doesn’t like to mix well so be patient.

Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper under a cooling rack. Turn the molds over to place the donuts on the cooling rack. Spoon the icing on the donuts. Eat hot or let them cool and enjoy!
