Keto Cheesecake Cupcakes with a twist ;)

Ok, so I’ve just had some rather chaotic fun making these. I’m not trying to put you off - I’m sure most people can manage to make these without getting cream cheese, grated peel and cocoa powder pretty much everywhere except the bowl - walls, floors, kitchen appliances… I’m just not one of these people ;s

Plus, got a bit creative and made a few different flavours - including a carrot cake variant I’m seriously proud of ;) 

Also, as I somehow doubled the cheesecake mix I now have stocked up my fat bomb selection with some new and unusual flavours - so bonus, fun fat bombs :D

But I’m sure you want to get onto the recipe!!

===================================================

Ingredients

~ For the base (makes 12)

  • 150g almond flour
  • 80g butter
  • 1tbsp sweetener (to taste)

~ for the basic filling  (makes 12)

  • 225g Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 100g creme fraiche
  • 100g sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

~ for the blueberry cheesecake (for 3)

  • 50g blueberries
  • grated zest half a lemon

~ for the chocolate cheesecake (for 3)

  • 2-4 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1tsp stevia (to taste)

~ for the three-citrus cheesecake (for 3)

  • grated zest of half a lemon, lime and orange
  • squeeze of juice from all three

~ for the carrotcake cheesecake (for 3)

  • 20g grated carrot
  • 15g sultanas
  • zest of half an orange and a squeeze of juice
  • 1-2tsp mixed spice

——————————————————————————————————————

Step 1: melt the butter in the microwave, add almond flour and sweetener. Mix well, it should get clumpy.

Step 2: put 12 cupcake cases in the tray, and press down some of the base mix into each one. Less is more with this - you don’t want them to be *too* thick! - half a cm maybe.

image

Step: 3 bake these int he oven for 5-10 minutes until they start to go slightly brown

Step 4: weigh your mixing bowl - this saves lots of hassle later, trust me!

Step 5: add the basic base ingredients: the cream cheese, cream etc. Whisk very well. If you wanted you could have this as is - it’s up to you.

image

Step 6: Weight your mixture, subtract the weight of the bowl. If you want to try 4 different kind of fillings, divide that value by 4. Pop a new mixing bowl on the scales and weigh out that amount of mixture.

Step 7: add ingredients (as listed below) and then add this mixture to your cupcake cases. Leave a little room at the top!!

image

(Note: any extra batter can be frozen form some rather unusual fat bombs :D - or you could eat it)

Step 8: bake for 15-25 minutes at 180oC.

Step 9: leave to cool - this is the tricky bit, best left overnight!!

For the basic mixture: macros 201 calories, 4g carbs, 19g fat, 5g protein

Blueberry: add 50g blueberries, you may want to chop them but I kept mine whole. Grate the zest from half a lemon into the batter and mix well.

Chocolate: add couple of teaspoons of cocoa powder and some sweetener (to taste). Stir Well! Could also add a pinch of cocoa to the top once poured :)

Three citrus: Grate half a lemon, half a lime and half an orange. Add to mix with a squeeze from each fruit. Stir well!!

Carrotcake (getting creative ;s): add 1-2tsp mixed spice, 15g sultanas and grate 20g carrot. Also add zest and squeeze of juice from half an orange. Stir well, sprinkle of mixed spice on the top is also nice ;)

Rich Salted Chocolate could-be-meringue Bites

So, these were meant to be meringues, but I broke them. Saying that, the worst they can be is these divine light spongy mouthfuls of chocolatyness. Try it, see what happens!

Also, having discovered I broke them I only had mini cupcake cases. these turned out to be a good plan, but I didn’t know how much (or if) the batter would rise. Turned out it didn’t. So, you can either have 20 at which point they come out to 15 calories, 1 carb, 1g fat, 1g protein, 1g fiber, or 10 at which points it’s 30 calories, 2g net carbs, 2g protein, 2g fiber. Either way they’re pretty guilt free and they taste very nice ^_^

========================================

Ingredients

  • 20g unsweetened plain chocolate
  • the egg-whites of 3 eggs
  • 18tsp powdered sweetener (i.e. 180g sugar)
  • 10g (1tsp) cornstarch (or plain flour)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)

————————————————————————————————————————-

Step1 - turn your oven to 190oC (375F)

Step 2 - separate you egg whites, and put them in a bowl. Whisk until they get frothy and stiff and form little peaks.

Step 3 - beat in half of your sugar 

Step 4 - combine other dry ingredients in a separate bowl - the cocoa, salt, flour and remaining sugar. 

Step 5 - beat into peak mixture.

Step 6 - finely chop up your chocolate, and melt half of it. (I used a little glass dish in the microwave for 30 seconds)

Step 7 - stir in chocolate chips, melted chocolate and vanilla essence into your peak mixture.

Step 8 - keep mixing until it thickens. If it does you made meringues correctly - yey! Separate the meringue dough into little balls, roll them in sugar and pop them on a baking sheet. Go to Step 11.

This feels a bit like Choose your Own Adventure now. Except with chocolate.

Step 9 - (optional) discover your meringues aren’t thickening at all. Ponder. Find some mini cupcake cases and spread them on your tray.

Step 10 - fill the cases with a teaspoon or so of mixture.

Step 11 - put your tray in the oven for 10 minutes or so until the mixture rises and cracks a bit on top.

Step 12 - take out the oven and wait to cool. Or just eat one because they look pretty darn tasty ^_^

Step 13 - sprinkle with a bit of sweetener. Enjoy!

========================================

So, because I only half filled these they made 20 - but I reckon you could get away with filling the cases the same again because they didn’t rise too much at all. 

If you have 20 the macros come out to be:

Pan-fried pork with apple cream sauce

Ingredients
  • coconut oil (1/2 tbsp)
  • 50g butter
  • 1/2 brambly cooking apple
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 50ml cream
  • chicken stock cube/paste
  • sprinkling of rosemary and thyme
  • optional: calvados
  • (even more optional: cointreau)
Serves 2

Step 1: melt coconut oil in a frying pan. When hot add pork loin and fry on both sides until brown. (Mine took a little time because I like mine pretty well done. Have a piece of tinfoil ready so that when it’s done you can wrap it up and keep it warm).

image

Step 2: while its cooking, chop half a cooking apple and half a small red onion. (Full disclosure I did this with a whole apple and whole onion and made 4 times as much ;s)
Step 3: melt the butter in a small saucepan, and add chopped onion/apples and the herbs. Keep string until browned and soft.
image
Step 4: add cream and (optionally) half a lid of calvados. Calvados is apple liqueur, and as I didn’t have any I instead opted for cointreau. This was surprisingly nice! - but it probably works best with calvados.
image

Step 5: reduce to a third of it’s volume, keep stirring.
Step 6: serve! 
image
As I have quite a bit extra I will be having this tomorrow too - but won’t be a bit upset because it’s delicious :D. Each serving came to 650 calories, 5g net carbs, 60g fat and 23g protein (not including veg).

ReKeto day 14: MFP help

Just recalculated my macros and added them to myfitnesspal using this wonderful browser bookmarklet which lets you add exact percentages to MFP instead of being stuck with 5% increments. 

Every little helps :)
