The first time I saw that Sugar…Free…Chocolate…FUDGE…Frosting…is a thing – I knew these were happening. These may actually be my favorite dessert now (and sometimes breakfast… 😉 Ssshhhh…☝️👄). They’re sweet, but not TOO rich – and they’re sooo (((trigger warning))) moisttttttt.

Banana Nut Bread

You will not be able to tell this isn’t “real” banana bread! We chose pecans (because yum) and I’ve never used banana extract before, so luckily my guesstimate of 1½ tsp was PERFECT. I started by pouring 1 tsp into the batter, and while pouring, about ½ a tsp overflowed into the batter…so 1½ tsp it is. 😅

Macros and pricing:
Based on the products we used, the cost of these ingredients will be roughly $9.35 and make 15 slices.
Per slice:
Fat = 19.4g
Total carbs 15.7g (YES; fifteen point seven. *PROTIP*: if you are in the minority that choose to count “total” carbs instead of net carbs, you probably won’t be making this, anyway. 😉 Amirite?) For the rest of us, 🎊🎉👉Net Carbs = 1.9g per slice 👈🎉🎊
Protein = 5.5g

Ingredients
4 tbps softened butter
¾ cup of Swerve or other sugar substitute
3½ oz cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
1½ tsp banana extract
1¼ cup almond flour (sesame seed flour for a nut free option)
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp of salt
1½ cups pecans, chopped

Instructions
Preheat oven to 300°F.
In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar substitute until well incorporated.
Add cream cheese and vanilla. Mix well. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each.
Add banana extract.
Add all dry ingredients until well combined.
Add ¾ of the chopped pecans to the batter and mix well, leaving ¼ for the topping. (or pour them all into the batter if you don’t care)
Pour batter into a well greased cake or loaf pan. The bread will rise, so ensure the pan is big enough to accommodate and keep a cookie sheet on the rack underneath to catch any spillage.
Top with the remaining ¼ of the chopped nuts for added prettiness.
Bake for 60-90 minutes, or until the middle stops being jiggly. Yes jiggly.
Let cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan.

Triple Berry Cream Cheese Danish

Next time we might chop the berries up so they’re mixed into the filling – but these were so good! Who doesn’t love danishes, though, right? You can cut back on the carbs by using less cream cheese since there is a bit much, but we only eat once to twice a day so these work for us because they’re super filling. We used this recipe.

Macros and pricing:
Based on the products we used, the cost of these ingredients will be roughly $7.05 and make 4 danishes.
Per danish (which includes 10g of berries):
Fat – 37.1g
Total carbs – 47.4g
Net carbs – 8.5g
Protein – 20.6g

Breakfast Crunch Wrap

We love our breakfast pizza, but I wanted to switch it up a little. I used the only pizza crust recipe we ever make anymore; the ZERO carb chicken crust pizza recipe from ketoconnect – but I manipulated the cooking times a bit so I could fold it. My boyfriend and I share one because they’re so filling!
Follow the directions in the recipe link to dry out the chicken and make the “dough” (up to and including STEP #6), but THEN:

Directions:
Bake dough at 350°F for 10 minutes
Meanwhile scramble (about 3) eggs and any other toppings (crumbled bacon and sausage)
Remove dough from oven, fill with egg scramble mixture, close/fold the dough around the eggs
Bake another 20-30 minutes until crunchy

Macros and pricing:
Based on the products we used, the cost of these ingredients will be roughly $3.36. Stats below include the crust ingredients + 3 eggs, 3 breakfast sausage links, 2 tbsp real bacon pieces and ¼ cup shredded cheese.
For the whole recipe:
Fat – 52.1g
Total carbs – 2.4g
Net carbs – 2.4g
Protein – 81.8g
