FANTASTIC LOW-CARB AUTUMN RECIPES

   NO BAKE VANILLA & MARSCARPONE CHEESECAKES WITH ROASTED “APPLES” & CARAMEL SAUCE    This is one of my favorite cheesecake recipes, it’s different form a baked cheesecake because it’s much lighter, with a silky-smooth texture. Also, because it’s a no bake cheesecake it’s much easier and quicker to make. The “apples” in this recipe are not actually apples at all, as we all know apples are loaded with sugar and carbs. The substitution is something called a chayote squash, it has a firm texture a bit like a cross between a zucchini and a pumpkin, virtually no flavor or acidity and zero sugar. When cooked with some added lemon juice, sweetener and spices, these taste remarkably just like roasted apples. Topped with a delicious salted caramel sauce, these beautiful cheesecakes make for a fantastic autumn dessert.

   SPICED PUMPKIN BREAD MUFFINS    Spiced pumpkin muffins are a must have indulgence to enjoy during the autumn months, especially in October, these light and flavorful muffins make for a delicious breakfast, afternoon snack or healthy Halloween treat. I personally love cutting the muffins in half and spreading thickly with good quality salted butter, they are truly divine. You can also skip the pumpkin seed topping and bake them plain and decorate with cream cheese frosting and a drizzle of raspberry coulis, for a bloody looking Halloween treat without all the carbs and sugar! Bake this aromatic almond-pumpkin batter in individual muffin cups, rather than a loaf pan (which results in an overly heavy bread, due the weight of the almond flour).

THE WORLD’S BEST LOW-CARB BROWNIES

I love cooking low-carb and for the most part as a trained chef I don’t have many issues transforming a high carb recipe into something with many less carbs. The two biggest challenges I have had are bread and chocolate brownies. I had an absolute killer recipe for regular brownies before going low carb, they were fudgey, buttery, soft with a crunchy top, milky and creamy and arguably the best brownies I’ve ever had.

When attempting to develop a low carb brownie, I ran into immediate issues, mainly because sugar is the number one ingredient in a brownie. Although we all know how bad sugar is for us and I certainly avoid it at all costs, there is no denying that it is a wonderful ingredient. The thing about sugar is it makes recipes sticky, fudgey, moist and it is the gold standard when it comes to making successful sweets. Remove the sugar from a recipe, where the sugar is the main ingredient and it can be difficult, if not impossible to recreate something of the same standard.

Even using Sola sweetener, which I developed, I was still having trouble getting to a gold standard recipe that would truly satisfy my taste buds and have the mouthfeel and texture of a regular brownie. I have been working on creating a brownie recipe worthy of posting and signing off on for over 2 years and after much testing and an extra push of having to demo a low-carb brownie recipe on live TV, I finally came up with the perfect recipe. I would argue that these low-carb brownies are the best in the world, yes, they are that good! They are soft and decadent, fudgey and moist, chocolatey, creamy, all the things you need from a brownie.

So give these brownies a go and be amazed by the results, I use sola sweetener which is going to give you the best results, see my sweetener guide here, if you can’t get hold of Sola sweetener for other sweetening options.

Wholegrain Keto Bread Rolls

These are probably the closest thing to real bread as you can get without the carbs, for me these are an absolute game changer, because they have the texture and taste of a whole grain roll. They toast up nicely, are fantastic for sandwiches, lunchboxes anything where you would usually use bread. Unlike other almond flour-based breads, you can’t detect the taste of almonds in this bread at all and they are incredibly light and fluffy. The magical ingredient here is something call psyllium husk, it’s a fibrous powder that soaks up a lot of water and provides a gelling and binding agent, similar in a way that wheat gluten does. The psyllium husk gets darker as it cooks, giving these rolls their wholegrain taste and appearance. The rolls are 2 grams net carbs each, and the dough could be shaped anyway, so you could make bagels, burger buns, whatever you like, however I have found cooking this recipe in a loaf results in a dense bread because of the weight of the almond flour, so whatever shape you make them, I’d recommend smaller rolls, biscuits, buns or bagels which remain light, fluffy and well risen.

I won’t take all the credit for this recipe, this has been modified from a diet doctor recipe, which was originally inspired by a Maria Emmerich recipe. I developed this recipe to use yeast as well as baking powder because I love the taste that yeast gives to bread, the addition of the yeast also adds extra fluffiness and texture to the bread.
