Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a large frying pan, saute onion in 1 tbsp of butter. In a separate bowl, mix together almond flour, ground beef, ground pork, egg, sauted onion, and spices
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Use a melon baller or small cookie scoop to form meatballs. Brown meatballs in frying pan, flipping with a spatula until all sides are cooked. Arrange meatballs in baking dish and add chicken broth. Bake for 40 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
To make sauce, combine pan drippings beef broth and xanthan gum. Bring to simmer and add sour cream. Salt and pepper to taste. If desired, blend sauce for a smoother consistency.
Serve Swedish Meatballs on low-carb noodles, such as Organic Black Bean Spaghetti, prepared according to package instructions, or a serving of mashed cauliflower.
3 tablespoons sugar free marmalade (grapefruit or orange)
Optional: Sugar-free whipped cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
To make crust, combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut in butter and cream cheese. Beat in mixer until butter chunks are broken up. Mix in egg. Remove dough and roll out between two sheets of parchment. The dough circle should be 12 inches in diameter to fit in a 9 inch pie plate. Remove dough from parchment and press into pie pan. Use a fork to make a few holes in the base of the crust to prevent bubbles. Bake for 15 minutes.
Reduce heat to 375 degrees.
In a mixing bowl or using a wire wisk, beat together the eggs, erythritol, lemon zest, and marmalade. Pour into prepared crust, and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the surface is golden brown and the pudding is set. Let chill in refrigerator at least 3 hours before serving. Use a knife to trim away excess crust around the rim of the pie plate. Slice into eight pieces and serve with a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream.
4 cups chopped nuts (I used 1 part walnuts and 3 parts pecans)
1 cup MCT oil (coconut oil also works)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup cocoa
1 cup erythritol
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment. In large mixing bowl, mix together first six ingredients. In small saucepan on medium heat, melt butter with MCT oil.
