Edible Raw Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

One time, I paid $15 for a tiny jar of keto cookie dough…NEVER AGAIN!

This recipe is perfect for when you’re craving some cookies but don’t have time to wait for them to bake. It’s very customizable once you make the base so if you don’t have chocolate chips, sprinkle a mix of cinnamon/sweetener for some edible snickerdoodle dough.

Zero Carb Pancakes (Keto-Friendly)

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pancakes. Give me pancakes any time of day and I’m a happy camper. The only issue is when I’m trying to really reduce total carbs, the classic almond flour pancakes that I love are just too high for me. ENTER: Isopure unflavored whey isolate protein powder – aka magic dust from the keto gods. Zero carb and versatile as hell! They give these pancakes a pancake texture and more fluff and firmness than if you were just making an egg pancake or crepe.

Here are some notes:

  1. If you eat this hot off the pan, they will taste eggy. Give them a hot minute to cool and then you will get the pancake vibes you’ve been craving.
  2. I use isopure because it’s the only brand I’ve ever used – if you want to use your favorite brand, go ahead and do so – but I have never used another whey isolate protein powder from another brand.
  3. I use unflavored whey isolate so I can control the taste and sweetness. If you have protein powder you want to try to use, please go ahead and try, but the carb count will be different – and possibly the texture.
  4. Here’s the sweetener I use for these pancakes – it’s the liquid stevia in toffee because it’s zero total carbs. I understand lots of people calculate net carbs in other sweeteners, but for a true zero carb situation, I prefer this liquid sweetener. It’s easy to work with and mixes beautifully in the batter.
  5. The pan I used is a silver dollar pan from Aldi. You can find a similar one on amazon.

Servings: 3 people

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in the microwave (about 20 seconds). Meanwhile, start heating a non-stick pan on medium heat.
  • In the same bowl as the butter, add half and half to the warm butter and mix.
  • Mix in whey and baking powder to the butter and half and half to form a thick, but smooth batter. No lumps!
  • Add vanilla and liquid stevia and continue mixing.
  • Whisk in eggs and let the batter sit for a minute or two.
  • Pour batter onto the hot pan – let it bubble up and then flip. The first side should only take 1-2 minutes to bubble up and the second side will only need half as much time to cook. Test out one pancake first to adjust sweetness and to get a better idea of cook time on your stove and pan.
  • Enjoy with butter and your favorite syrup or jam!

A New Home For Your Instant Pot

Ahhhh the Instant Pot – how did I ever boil eggs before you? This kitchen gadget is incredibly useful and is something I would consider a staple item. I use it weekly and it’s the perfect tool for hard/soft boiled eggs, bone broths, and when I was eating lots of carbs — rice.

I’m a sucker for the Instant Pot and it’s gadgets so my kitchen used to be filled with all these random accessories that somehow contribute to my Instant Pot routine. Queue, the magical Target utility cart! This thing is so easy to put together and is sold at a great price point ($30). I use it to store my 6 quart Instant Pot, all of its accessories, and my Nutribullet + its accessories. This utility cart lives in my pantry and has wheels if I need to move it out of the way.

Sugar Free Bacon Jam

If you’ve never heard or had bacon jam before, prepare to have your mind blown. It is just as it sounds, a jam made from bacon except this one is sweet, salty, garlicky, and all the good stuff in one. The recipe itself is super simple but you need to bring patience and some time to kill because this one’s low and slow. Use bacon jam on burgers, eggs, as a spread, dip, or mixed with cream cheese. You could honestly just eat it with a spoon it’s so good.

Super Easy Sugar Free Gummy Bears

These are an easy way to get your sweet fix without the sugar high or guilt. They have the texture of a soft gummy, firm jello, or soft fruit snack – whichever floats your boat to describe it. I keep mine in the fridge after I take them out of the mold so they continue to stay firm. You can use anything to flavor the gummies – I prefer to use the individual drink packets you can pick up at the Dollar Tree, Walgreens, or grocery store but if you want to keep it clean you could add electrolyte drink mixes or naturally sweetened water enhancers. I purchased my molds on Amazon.

You just need to remember these two tips: 1. Make sure the gelatin powder is completely dissolved in the water before pour the mixture into the molds and 2. You need to work quickly, do not try to pre-make the mixture and then save the pouring for another time.

Instructions

  • Mix the gelatin powder with hot water until it’s fully dissolved.
  • Add the sugar free drink powder.
  • Put the molds on a tray. Pour the liquid into silicone molds.
  • Pick up the tray and place the molds into the fridge for at least 20 minutes before removing them from the molds.
  • Store them in an air tight container in the refrigerator for the best experience.

Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker Review

I recently impulse bought an ice cream maker because 1) it was on sale for a very reasonable price ($32 compared to $79 reg) and 2) I had heavy whipping cream and whole milk in my fridge that I wanted to use up. Not very logical or practical, but it’s winter right now and I’m trying to keep myself busy inside to distract myself from the fact that it’s a froze tundra outside.

The Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker is built to make about 1.5 quarts of ice cream. It comes with an electric base, bowl, paddle, and lid. It’s about the size of a large blender and comes in red or white. There was also an instruction and recipe book included in the box, however, the machine is pretty easy to put together sans instructions.

Luckily, David has agreed to be my sous-chef for life so he was able to help me put this thing to the test. The first thing we had to do was freeze the mixing bowl because there is a liquid in there that must be solid before any ice cream can be made. Sixteen hours later, we had a frozen bowl, whole milk, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, and some sugar waiting to be transformed. After mixing all of the ingredients together, we turned on the machine and poured the contents into bowl as it spun. The mixture started to thicken after every minute, and after about 15 minutes, we had a soft-serve textured 1.5 quart of vanilla ice cream. We also added crushed pineapple to the mixture to take it up a notch.

Overall, the Ice Cream Maker completed it’s mission exactly as described in the instruction manual. I was pretty impressed at how fast everything came together – and clean up was a breeze. The only thing I would change is to use higher quality vanilla extract because the one we used tasted more like alcohol. Pretty pumped to test out different ice cream recipes over the next couple of weeks!
