Sweet Potato Pie Bites

Sweet Potato Bites

These Sweet Potato Pie Bites are a family favorite. I made them for Thanksgiving one year, and my husband and son couldn’t get enough of them.  My son eats them all year round.  We use goat cheese but you can play around with the combinations.  I like blue cheese crumbles with chopped walnuts, as well as this version. These are seriously yummy!

Pumpkin Walnut Bread with Oat Flour

PumpkinBreadCut1_brightened

This bread is incredibly moist, beautifully spiced and full of pumpkin flavor. Accented with warm spices like cinnamon, plus a touch of earthy nutmeg and clove, dreamy coconut oil, and vanilla too. It’s not too oaty. The walnuts give it a lovely crunch, and the maple glaze.. divine!

The oat flour is so easy to make, you just blend oats until they resemble a flour-like texture. They create a beautiful depth of flavor in the bread.

Keto Curried Chicken

This Keto Paleo Curried Chicken completely made me forget I was cutting out sugar.

The coconut curry ties all the ingredients together, while the pepitas give it a nice crunch, and the mild earthy blueberries give it the little sweetness that the dish requires, without breaking the Keto bank.
