Snickerdoodle No Bake Granola Bars

 

Snickerdoodle No-Bake Granola Bars

A delicious protein style granola bar that is easy to make. They are great to have on hand for quick, convenient meals, or snacks when you want something with a little crunch or just enough sweetness. They can be made completely nut-free by substituting seed butter for the almond butter and more seeds for the cashews. Once you’ve made them, you will want to experiment with different combinations of your favorite nuts, seeds and Keto Chow flavors.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cashews, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free syrup or honey substitute
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop Snickerdoodle Keto Chow

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8 square pan with two pieces of plastic wrap long enough to hang over the edges of the pan by a few inches. Lay one piece in the pan, then lay the second piece in the opposite direction so you have plastic wrap hanging over all four edges. Oil lightly and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl combine coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cashews, and chia seeds. Set aside.
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, combine the almond butter, syrup, and coconut oil.
  • Microwave on high for one minute, then carefully stir until everything is fully mixed.
  • Mix in the vanilla extract and the Keto Chow, the mixture will thicken as you stir.
  • Pour the dry seed mixture into the warm nut butter mixture and stir until the nuts and seeds are distributed evenly and everything is mixed. If the mixture is cool enough you can knead it by hand.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the prepared pan, using the bottom of a glass to smooth it into an even layer if necessary.
  • Take the plastic wrap hanging over the edges of the pan and fold it over the mixture. You can press down on the plastic wrap to even the bars more.
  • Place the pan in the refrigerator to chill for at least two hours.
  • When the bars have set, remove them from the pan by lifting the plastic wrap. Transfer them to a cutting board and remove the plastic wrap.
  • Cut them across into six pieces, then cut those six pieces in half vertically, so you have 12 bars.
  • To store them lay them flat in an airtight container with parchment or wax paper between the layers to keep them from sticking together. Store in the fridge or the freezer.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries 1 1/2 pints
  • 1/2 cup granulated brown-sugar style sweetener, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 scoop Snickerdoodle Keto Chow
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Instructions

  • Butter a 9” deep-dish, glass pie plate or oven safe skillet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Mix the blueberries, 1/4 cup of the sweetener, lemon juice, and cinnamon and pour into the prepared pie pan or skillet. Put the fruit in the preheated oven and bake 25 - 30 minutes until the blueberries are beginning to boil and bubble up around the edges of the pan.
  • While the blueberries are baking, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, Keto Chow, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl mix the eggs, sour cream, butter, and the remaining 1/4 cup sweetener.
  • When the blueberries are almost ready, mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Carefully remove the pie pan from the oven and place dollops of the topping on the hot blueberry filling, like drop biscuits, starting from the center and working around. Gently smooth the tops so they are all the same height.
  • Return the pan to the oven. For best results, place the pie pan on a cookie tray to catch any spills if it boils over.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes more, until the topping is beginning to brown around the edges and springs back when touched in the center.
  • Remove cobbler from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream or a scoop of sugar-free, vanilla ice cream.

Pistachio White Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

 

Pistachio White Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

Creamy pistachio ice cream studded with chunks of toasted nuts wrapped in white chocolate is going to be your new summer favorite. Ripening the mixture in the freezer for only four hours after churning it, results in a soft, creamy gelato like texture. If it freezes longer it will be just as delicious but may need to sit at room temperature for a few minutes to return to the delightful consistency. Toasted pistachios coated in white chocolate really make this ice cream special, but pistachios are higher in carbs than some nuts so feel free to replace them with almonds, walnuts, or macadamia nuts to lower the carb count on this luscious frozen dessert.

Equipment

  • Blender, Ice Cream Maker

Ingredients

  • 2 oz shelled pistachios
  • 2 oz sugar-free white chocolate chips
  • 3 oz granulated allulose
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (8 oz)
  • 2 scoops Pistachio Keto Chow
  • 2 cups heavy cream (16 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp pistachio extract (optional)

Instructions

  • Toast the nuts by placing them in a dry skillet set over medium-low heat and cooking them until they begin to look lightly browned and smell toasty. This should only take about five minutes. Keep a close eye on them as they can burn quickly.
  • When they are done move them to a tray lined with parchment paper to cool.
  • Meanwhile, place the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 15 second bursts, until melted enough to stir smooth.
  • Mix the toasted nuts into the white chocolate and spread the mixture out on the parchment paper covered tray. Spread them into one even layer. Place the tray in the freezer to set.
  • Place the allulose, almond milk, and keto chow in a blender and blend until the allulose is dissolved, and the keto chow is completely mixed.
  • Add the heavy cream, and the pistachio extract if using, and blend again briefly just until everything is combined, and frothy. If you blend too long you will turn the cream into butter.
  • The mixture should still be cold, transfer to your ice cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer's directions. It takes about 20 minutes to churn ice cream in my machine.
  • While the ice cream is churning, break the chocolate covered nuts into individual pieces.
  • When it’s ready, it will have increased in volume and will be very thick, but still spoon-able. However, every machine is different so please consult the manufacturer’s directions for your machine.
  • If it is possible add the nuts before you turn off the machine, allowing the machine to mix them into the ice cream. If you can’t add the nuts to your machine while mixing, fold them into the ice cream when you transfer it to the container.
  • Transfer the ice cream to a container and freeze for four hours, until frozen but still soft enough to scoop.
  • Keep ice cream stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two weeks for best results.
