Blueberry Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies

LOW CARB, SUGAR-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE BRINGS TOGETHER THIS AMAZING KETO COOKIE If you’ve ever had chocolate covered blueberries before and loved them then this is the perfect cookie recipe for you. Blueberry Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies are thick, moist and perfect for dunking in your favourite drink. I am partial to a tall glass of cold milk with any cookies I eat. Every once in a while Mrs. CBB wants something sweet so we work on testing new recipes in our kitchen that are low-carb, sugar-free and gluten-free. Since she’s been eating a keto diet for the past 3 years I’ve become accustomed to being the test-it-husband because if she can get it past me she knows the recipe will be a hit. I was a bit hesitant about the blueberries and chocolate mix but not anymore because they turned out amazing which is why we are sharing the recipe. All recipes we create are tested and loved by us otherwise they don’t make the blog. When you are on a keto diet eating berries is about the only fruit you will get in your diet so adding blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries to your favourite sweets recipes are delicious.

Summer Fresh Rhubarb Salad with Toasted Cashews

SALAD MAKING WITH THIS NEW WAY OF ENJOYING RHUBARB   Each year we have an abundance of rhubarb from our one plant that gives us 4 crops throughout the summer months. This season our new recipe is a colourful summer fresh rhubarb salad with fennel and other crisp vegetables topped with toasted cashews and tossed in a light sweet apple cider vinaigrette. YES, this salad is low-carb and perfect for the keto diet as rhubarb is low in carbs. Healthy salads are always part of our menu plan during the summer months so putting together salad combinations that are bright and unique with a homemade salad dressing always hits the spot. Summer salads in our kitchen almost always include a protein so pairing this gorgeous rhubarb salad with honey glazed BBQ’d Atlantic salmon was a hit. Mrs. CBB had a bit of her sugar-free syrup instead to keep the rhubarb salad and salmon dish keto friendly. Growing rhubarb has been an experience for Mrs. CBB and I only because she had never tried it before and I couldn’t believe how expensive it was to buy at the supermarket. Forget about buying organic as the price is even more pricier. What […]

Copycat Starbucks Strawberry Acai Pink Drink Keto Style

YOUR GO-TO SUMMER PINK DRINK LOW ON THE CARBS AND SUGAR-FREE   When Mrs. CBB made her way to Starbucks on the way home from a recent trip she decided to try their popular pink drink known as the Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher but keto style. In all honesty she had no idea what she was about to order but the barista was very helpful and together they created a sugar-free Passion-Fruit Strawberry Pink Drink made with coconut milk. Now that the warm weather is officially here we thought no better way to celebrate than to make the expensive grande $6.20 Starbucks Pink Drink at home. This will obviously be a huge savings to the Starbucks Pink Drink lover and for anyone who wants to control the amount of sugar and carbs they are getting in their diet. Before we started our keto pink drink we put our large fancy glasses in the freezer to frost them up. Nothing better than a cold, frosty drink in a frosty mug. Right? Ingredients for Strawberry Acai Starbucks Refresher (these are the original ingredients) Ice, Strawberry Acai Base [Water, Sugar, White Grape Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Natural Green Coffee Flavor, Fruit […]

The Perfect Keto Crepes (Low-Carb)

CREPES ARE THE PERFECT TREAT ANY TIME OF DAY   I know that making French crepes sounds overwhelming for some people but trust me when I say these are just as easy to prepare as you would make fluffy keto pancakes. This week we decided to make keto crepes for everyone to enjoy at home but without the gluten and sugar. Breakfast is typically something easy in our family which also includes pancakes, french toast or waffles. These beauties are my version of low-carb, keto crepes British-style however the only British in this recipe is the guy that makes them. I’m no stranger to making crepes though. Growing up in the UK we ate more crepes than we did pancakes so I’m familiar with this French cuisine thanks to my mum. Crepes with lemon filling sprinkled with confectioners sugar were one of my favourites in my teens. What is a crepe? A crêpe or crepe is a type of very thin pastry. Crêpes are usually of two types: sweet crêpes and savoury galettes.- Wikipedia Our aim is to keep any keto recipes that we create simple and without extra hassle because nobody loves to be in the kitchen all day.
