If you are a fan of brownies and sweet desserts, or you just enjoy baking, the recipe we are suggesting today will become your new hit!
Especially if you are currently trying to change your unhealthy habits, lose weight, or just support your health, you surely struggle to reduce the calorie intake, or to slow down on sugar.
The following recipe includes healthier and inexpensive ingredients. Also, you should not use artificial sweeteners, but natural ones instead. These delicious sweet potato brownies are moist, paleo, vegan, and gluten-free!
Health benefits
The sweetness of the sweet potatoes improves the blood sugar in the case of type 2 diabetes, regardless of their seemingly high Glycemic Index (GI).
The color of the sweet potatoes is due to the presence of Anthocyanin, which is high in anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial for the brain and nerve tissue.
Moreover, they are high in vitamin C and A, B6, B1, B2, and B3, as well as other nutrients, including fiber, potassium, copper, manganese, and phosphorus, which support the health of the blood, digestion, and the entire body.
Additionally, maple syrup has 54 antioxidants which effectively prevent diseases due to free radicals like diabetes and cancer.
This is how to prepare these delicious sweet potato brownies:

  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup smooth nut butter of choice
  • Handful of carob chips (optional)

You should preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a small loaf or cake pan.
Next, you should mix the nut butter mixed with the maple syrup and melt the mixture on the stove.
Mix the cocoa powder, mashed sweet potato, and the melted nut butter and maple syrup mixture in a larger bowl. Then, fold in the chocolate chips, and pour the mixture into the greased pan.
Bake for 20 minutes, and then remove them from the oven. Leave the brownies to cool completely. Then, slice them and store them in the fridge or freezer.

Flaxseed Cinnamon Bun Muffins (grain-free, paleo, low carb + keto)

Flourless, fluffy, grain-free, keto muffins made with ground flaxseed, tastes just like a cinnamon bun. Naturally high in fiber, low in carbohydrates, sugar-free, keto, and paleo.
Keto muffins! Are you ready for this? Mentally? Emotionally?
Remember when I made this Keto Grain-free Flaxseed Foccacia? It’s THE most popular recipe on the blog. Of all time, ever.
The other day, I made Coconut Creme French Toast with a couple of slices of keto focaccia (highly recommend doing this) and it got me thinking… I bet I could make keto muffins with that same base keto focaccia recipe.
How French toast made me think of muffins is beyond me. Whatever the connection, we’re all in luck. A little tweak here and there and here we are…

Instead of flour, I’ve used ground flaxseeds for this low carb, keto muffin recipe. That’s it, that’s all. Maybe you’ve read/heard about heated flaxseeds being bad for your health? It’s partially true. Here’s the thing…

Why I’m okay with heating Whole flaxseed

The fragile components of flax; where all of this heat or not to heat concern stems, is in the alpha-linolenic acid (an omega fatty acid) and lignans (a compound that mimics human hormones, specifically estrogen). I was able to find three separate studies that note the effects of heating flaxseed and it’s overall health benefits.
All in all, I’m not concerned with using whole (or ground) flaxseed in my homemade keto baking because I’m in control of its freshness, the temperatures that were used, and the duration. The same cannot be said for store-bought flax products… I’ll stick with homemade, thanks.

The REALLY cool thing about flax; and something I am practicing myself, is its ability to normalize estrogen levels. In December, I began supplementing with 3 capsules of this flaxseed oil supplement, in an effort to boost my estrogen even further. If you’re not familiar with my hormone regulation project, check this out.

The lignans in flaxseed are phytoestrogens , plant chemicals mimicking the effects of estrogen in the body: Phytoestrogens hook onto the same spots on cells where estrogen attaches. If there is little estrogen in the body, for example after menopause, lignans may act like weak estrogen. However, when natural estrogen is abundant, lignans may reduce the hormone’s effects by displacing it from cells; displacing estrogen in this manner might help prevent those cancers that depend on estrogen, such as breast cancer, from starting and developing. (This is also, in part, how soy is believed to work in breast cancer prevention, although the phytoestrogens in soy are isoflavones .)

Excerpt from NYU Medical Center, Flaxseed
Either way, it’s a win, win. Baking with the flaxseed, flaxseed supplementation, it’s all the name of my keto game right now.
Right, and eating a lot of keto muffins. Definitely part of the plan, too.

Flourless grain-free, sugar-free, low carb muffins made with just flaxseed.
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a 12-count muffin pan with non-bleached paper liners. Set aside.
  2. Combine flax seed with sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine fully and set aside.
  3. Add eggs, water, oil and vanilla extract to the jug of your high-powered blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds, until foamy.
  4. Transfer liquid mixture to the bowl with the flaxseed mixture. Stir with a spatula, just until incorporated. The mixture will be very fluffy. Once incorporated, allow to sit for 3 minutes.
  5. Spoon mixture into prepared muffin pan, each cavity should be filled about 90% of the way up. The muffins will expand while baking so don’t fill to the very tops.
  6. Bake muffins for 13-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and remove muffins from the cavities immediately and place on a cooling rack.
  7. Muffins can be toasted or frozen. Keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Xylitol – I made this keto recipe with xylitol. Feel free to use whatever sugar you’d like to here. If you’re aiming for sugar-free, you could try stevia, too. If you aren’t sure free, maple syrup or coconut sugar would likely work. Add these sugars into the wet mixture while blending.
Eggs – if you have an egg allergy, I’ve been told that this format of recipe works really well with egg replacer but I have not tried it personally.
MCT Oil – you could use Alpha Energy; an MCT oil blend, or Bulletproof Brain Octane. If you do not have access or are not interested in using MCT oil, coconut oil would work well, too.

Begin by adding all dry ingredients to a large bowl. I used a lot of cinnamon in this recipe… because I love it! Don’t be afraid with the 2 tablespoons. It’s not overkill, it’s just right!

Set aside the bowl of dry ingredients and add all of the wet ingredients to the jug of your blender. I used local, pasture-raised eggs for this recipe. The yolks were so bright and beautiful. If you use a lighter flaxseed with this keto recipe, combined with the deep yellow yolks, the keto muffins will take on a whole other color.

Once blended, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredient bowl and stir to mix. I like to set the mixture aside to thicken up for a couple of minutes.

Leaving the batter to sit will help the flaxseed congeal with the liquid ingredients, it’s quite marvelous!

Transfer to muffin tins, bake and chow down! I like my (warm) keto muffins spread with coconut oil and a touch of salt.
Flaxseed Cinnamon Bun Muffins #grain-free #paleo #lowcarb #keto
This last year has been so transformative. I’ve seen keto foods change my life in ways I never thought possible, just by changing my view on what could heal me and what my body was asking for. Flaxseed has been part of that, using it to normalize my estrogen levels without the use of hormone replacement therapies. One day at a time, keeping an open mind to it all, and sharing my journey along the way.
I know that many of you are healing yourself through food, like me! And, I’d love to hear your stories. Please, share in the comments below. Your journey will act as inspiration to the thousands of women in our community seeking solace in knowing that we are not alone.

Easy Low Carb Peanut Butter Pecan Bars – Diet Program

These low carb high fat Peanut Butter Pecan Bars are healthy, really easy to make, and melt-in-your-mouth delicious!  They are made with real ingredients, and much better for you than store-bought low carb bars.
You could substitute the pecans for other nuts, but you’ll need to adjust your carb count if you do. Pecans are the lowest carb, highest fat nut – with walnuts pulling a close second.
You can make them with crushed pecans (above), pecan halves (below), or pecan pieces. They turn out great no matter what you use. It’s such a simple recipe that you can get creative and use it to make all sorts of delicious low carb bars & fudges!

  • 1/2 Cup Peter Pan Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1 TSP Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 TBSP Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup
  • 2 Cups Pecans

You can cut down the carb count by using half the amount of pecans I used in this batch. I typically use 1/4 cup of pecans per bar, and I make them in 4 large 2-serving bars.
I decided to “double the nuts” today, but you’ll want to make sure you enter your recipe based on the exact amounts you use – and also double check your own labels.
I use the Free Recipe Nutrition Calculator at MyFitnessPal.
Here’s what my “double nut” low carb peanut butter pecan bars look like today:
Peanut Butter Pecan Bars

 As you can see, they are large and nutty.  Half of one bar is a serving.

Nutrition Facts:
They are 3 net carbs per serving, and 91% healthy fats.
(Or 6 net carbs for an entire bar, shown above.)
Low Carb Bars Nutrition Facts
Measure out your pecans into 4 individual dishes: 1/2 cup pecans per dish. I used smaller plastic food storage containers.
Combine 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup peanut butter. I used a large glass measuring cup with a pour spout, so I could mix and pour easily.
Warm it up in the microwave just enough to melt both so you can stir it together well. I heat for 25 seconds and stir, then another 25 seconds until it’s creamy and smooth. Add in vanilla extract and sugar free vanilla syrup. Mix well.
You should have about 1 cup of the peanut butter / coconut oil mixture in your measuring cup. Measure out 1/4 of the mixture over each of the 4 pecan dishes. Stir it just a bit to make sure all of the nuts are covered by the mixture, then put them in the refrigerator to set up.
That’s it! They set up pretty fast. Enjoy!!

Soft Taco Recipe With Spinach |Low Carb Taco Shells

How about some seriously healthy finger food for your Friday ?
soft taco shell low carb spinach taco shells
I know I already shared tons of healthy finger food recipes on this blog but I can’t get enough of it. Blame the Auckland summer. The sun, beach and school holidays just makes me in the party mood! SO yes this Soft Taco Recipe is surprisingly made of spinach! UGH! I know! Spinach again but you guys know my obsession with this vegetable! I can’t spend a day without eating spinach. I seriously add spinach everywhere from my morning toast, to my smoothie -OH, and did you know that in 100g of spinach there is 46% of vitamin C bringing spinach as a top 1 sugar free substitute to orange juice in breakfast smoothies. Well, I have to find me good excuses to overeat spinach I guess lol SO let,s talk about the recipe now (scroll down! I will tell you my secret!)


SO first I will reassure there is NO need to be a chef to make this recipe! It is basically a NO FAIL recipe. All you need is 5 ingredients and well drained cooked spinach. Yes, that is maybe the only tricky part of this recipe the spinach has to be super dry. It is actually very easy. Whatever you are using fresh or frozen spinach all you need to do is pressing the cooked spinach between absorbent paper until no more water left.
Join 5 days clean eating challengeThat’s all! And because I love YOU! I take time to shoot some steps by steps pictures of this simple soft taco recipe. Look how easy-peasy this is to make! I uploaded a video below for you! Honestly, the first time I tried this recipe I was not really sure it will hold together. BUT it actually did work pretty well! You can easily fill them fold them and add any sauce without a leak! It works perfectly like any soft taco recipe except this one is SUPER healthy. Plus, Emma – my 3 years old – absolutely love them SO if you are kiddo are picky eaters give it a try I am sure they will love it too. Personally, I filled my taco only with vegetables because it is summer and I am way TOO hot. So I added homemade guacamole – you can find my dairy free guacamole recipe here– shredded lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber slices and drizzle of cashew Aioli on top to add some creamy garlic taste. YEP! I also made the Aioli myself – you know  I am a crazy clean eating cook! For the Aioli I did not follow a special recipe. I simply used 1 cup of cashew nuts that I soaked in water for 3 hours. Blend the soaked cashew with salt, pepper and 1-2 gloves o garlic until creamy and smooth and add 2 tbsp. of tahini paste and 2 tbsp. coconut milk to the mixture to make the sauce a bit thicker.
But NOW you probably want to ask me if you can make-ahead this recipe! Absolutely! and you know what ? you can even eat those spinach taco cold. Usually this is how I organised myself. I simply prepare the batter few hours before dinner time, wrap my bowl with plastic wrap and store in the fridge. Then few hours before dinner, preheat oven to 200C (400F), arrange the taco batter on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and bake 15 minutes.spinach tacosYou will get  4 soft spinach taco shells HOT. But if you bake them a little bit earlier simply rewarm then 15 seconds in the microwave before filling them or eat them cold it is good too! I hope you enjoy this spinach taco recipe because it is probably my favorite recipe on the blog and maybe the most creative! And LOOK! I even made a quick video of me making those spinach soft taco recipe just to show you how EASY + TASTY+ HEALTHY this recipe is !!!
