Keto Chocolate PB Eggs

Inspired by the iconic combination of peanut butter and chocolate, these indulgent eggs are keto with just around 7g of carbs, still sweet while remaining low in sugar, and can be made vegan. Just a few simple steps and you’ll be serving up a new favorite. 

You’ll Need:
1 egg-shaped silicone mold
Peanut Butter Filling
4 tbsp unsalted butter or coconut butter
3/4 cup powdered erythritol allulose
1 cup unsweetened salted peanut butter (or other type of butter you prefer)
1 tbsp coconut oil
A pinch of kosher salt to taste
Chocolate Coating
1 cup dark chocolate
2-3 tsp coconut oil as needed
Makes: Approximately 20 eggs
Instructions:
  1. Blend the first six ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth. Mix in coconut flour and stir chocolate chips in.
  2. Press into Easter egg mold or shape by hand and lay on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes-1 hour.
  3. Melt chocolate and butter, then stir (it should be smooth). Pour in about 2 tsp. of chocolate into Easter egg mold, then insert egg and cover with more chocolate. If you don’t have an egg mold, dip the eggs into melted chocolate. Remove with a fork, and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. If you wish, you can also add sugar-free icing designs on the eggs after you take them out of the mold.
  5. Refrigerate until chocolate is hardened. Serve straight out of the fridge!

 

Keto Lavender Lemon Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread cookies are a perfect treat year-round. Their crumbly, buttery texture is hard to beat, and they pair perfectly with tea or coffee after an Easter dinner feast. These cookies are keto with only about 2g of net carbs per cookie. We also added a little spring zest to the recipe with culinary lavender and lemon. Roll out, cut into traditional rectangles or circles, or use any shape cookie cutter—the possibilities are endless.

You’ll Need:
½ cup salted softened butter
¼ cup granulated sweetener of choice
¾ cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup dried culinary lavender
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice (we like Meyer lemons for an even sweeter taste)
Makes: Approximately 10-12 cookies
Instructions:
  1. Blend butter and sweetener in a bowl until smooth. Stir in the flour and vanilla extract. Mix until combined well.
  2. Let the dough rest on the counter for 5-10 minutes for the signature crumble and texture of shortbread.
  3. Form the dough into a ball and cover. Chill the dough for 30 minutes.
  4. Shape the dough into ¼” thick cookies by rolling the dough out between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Cut cookies with a cookie cutter or knife.
  5. Place on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes at 325°F. Let it cool and enjoy!

3/4 cup pitted Medjool dates (about 8 large dates)
3/4 cup shredded carrots
