I haven’t blogged in months, people, because lookie! I got licensed and insured and am officially in business to get a 2 net carb pizza crust…or flatbread…or wrap…into the market. It’s currently only available to people in Kansas City, as I am just now officially underway, but the goal is to get it picked up nationally and into stores…there are many steps to get there, but for now, I am so excited to get this Keto pizza crust out there. For updates, please like the Fattyhead Facebook Page. Cheers!
Who says adapting to the ketogenic way of eating means an end to sweets? Not me! I have to LIVE, my friends. So allow me to show you a Keto peanut butter cup that will have Reese’s running in their sugar-filled boots! Here goes…
Keto Peanut Butter Cup Recipe
1. In a pan on low heat, melt and stir the following: 8 T kerrygold butter, 1 T sugar-free peanut butter, 1/2 t vanilla, 1-2 teaspoons Pure Monk brand monk fruit.
2. Stir in 1 cup almond flour. Set aside.
3. In separate pan, melt dark chocolate of your choice. For this recipe, I use Moser Roth 85% cocoa bars from Aldi (3 individually wrapped bars). Adding Keto sweetener is optional. Lily’s is a popular brand of sugar-free chocolate among Keto enthusiasts.
4. Drip about 1 teaspoon chocolate into mini baking cups and chill for 5 minutes.
5. Add 1 T almond flour mixture to each cup, pat down, and top with remaining dark chocolate. Almonds are optional. Chill and eat!
*Note for the Keto Police: Moser Roth chocolate has a wee bit of sugar. If someone says sugar isn’t Keto, I say keto(sis) is a metabolic state, not a food. We each do the best we can!
Monk Fruit is extraordinarily sweet, so if you use a different keto sweetener, you’ll need to adjust the recipe accordingly. It is now my favorite sweetener, after using Pyure, which is a blend of stevia and erythritol. Pyure is great for recipes since it measure the same as sugar, but I am digging monk fruit now. Pure Monk Fruit is harder to find, so I ordered mine online. I have seen Pyure in Walmart and grocery stores. .

You’ve heard of location, location, location? Well with keto, making simple dishes sometimes comes down to one ingredient: bacon, bacon, bacon. The nitrate-free variety for the cleanest eating possible. This Keto Chicken Bacon Bake recipe takes all of 20 minutes to toss together. Even less time if you’re doing the dairy-free version. With the healthy fats, you stay satiated more so than simply low-carb eating without the filling and brain-feeding fats.

What Makes This Keto
1. Healthy Fats: dump the old oils that are inflammatory (corn, canola, vegetable, soybean), and bring in the healthy keto friendly oils (olive, coconut, avocado, grade-fed butter, ghee, nitrate-free bacon fat).
2. More Healthy Fats: cheese and cream cheese
3. The Salt: Himalayan Pink salt has micronutrients that table salt does not. And to avoid the Keto Flu, which is a loss of electrolytes (potassium, magnesium, salt), YOU NEED SALT. Especially if you’re doing clean keto, which means ingredients count. Dirty keto means people are concerned only with carb count.
