1/2 cup pecans (Skip these to reduce carb count further)
2 oz softened cream cheese
1/8 cup softened butter
1/2 cup Swerve powdered sweetener
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 pan. In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Heat butter in a small saucepan, stirring until it melts and starts to brown (but not burn) and pour into dry ingredients. Mix in vanilla extract, caramel extract, and eggs. Once combined, stir in chocolate chips and pecans. If desired, reserve some to use as topping. Press cookie dough into prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool and slice into 18 bars. Beat together heavy softened cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add powdered sweetener and vanilla. Add heavy whipping cream and beat until smooth. Spread cream cheese frosting over cookies and top with pecans and melted and chocolate drizzle.
1/3 cup pecans (Skip these to reduce carb count further)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13 pan or line with parchment. In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Heat butter in a small saucepan, stirring until it melts and starts to brown (but not burn). Remove butter from heat and mix with pumpkin puree. Mix butter/pumpkin mixture into dry ingredients. Add vanilla extract and eggs. Once combined, stir in pecans. Press cookie dough into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the edges are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn off oven. Sprinkle white chocolate chips over the top of the cookies, and let sit in warm oven until slightly melted. Remove cookies from oven, and if desired, drag a butter knife through the melted chocolate to make a squiggle pattern. Let cool and slice into 18 bars.
8 Ole Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb Tortilla Wraps
Grease a 11×7 pan and set aside, preheat oven to 350. In small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together oil and spices. Whisk in chicken broth. After no spice lumps remain, heat the sauce for fifteen minutes. Whisk in xanthan gum. Let sauce cool slightly before proceeding to the next step to prevent burning your hands during the rolling process. To make each enchilada, dip tortilla in sauce and lay in prepared pan. Add 1/4 cup cheese to the center of middle of the tortilla. Roll and push to the edge of the pan. Repeat with remaining 7 tortillas. Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas and top with remaining cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. If desired top, with shredded lettuce and sour cream (not included in nutrition estimate).
4 Heka Good Birthday Cake Batter Bars (Use code KETOMOOSE for discount!)
Optional: coconut sprinkles (dyed with food coloring)
Line a glass bread pan with foil. Butter the base and sides of the pan. Using a food processor, pulse Heka Good bars until they are pea size crumbs or smaller. Press half of the crumbs into the base of the pan, and set others aside. Beat softened cream cheese in mixer until smooth. Slowly add heavy whipping cream 1/4 cup at a time, and beat until fluffy. It should be the consistency of very heavy whipped cream. Add vanilla extract. Still mixing, slowly add erythritol or sugar substitute of your choice and mix until sugar substitute dissolves and is no longer grainy (taste is the best test for this). Pour mixture into prepared bread pan. Sprinkle remaining bar crumbs over the top. If desired, sprinkle colored coconut over the top as well. Cover with foil and freeze until firm, at least 6 hrs. Let soften for 5 minutes. Slice into six squares and serve.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment. Cream together erythritol and butter. Slowly add in eggs, vanilla, unflavored gelatin, and baking powder. Mix in coconut flour and almond flour. In a separate bowl, combine 1/4 cup erythritol and cinnamon. Use a medium cookie scoop to shape cookies into balls and roll in cinnamon and sweetener mixture. Place cookie dough balls on prepared cookie sheet, a couple inches apart. If you prefer thin and crunchier cookies, flatten the cookie dough balls prior to baking. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Remember, baked goods made with erythritol are much softer when they are hot and will crisp up as they cool.
