Dairy-free-Pumpkin-Pie-Fudge2A fat bomb dessert. Layered patties made from ground pumpkin, ground coconut and spices. Add grass-fed collagen for boosted nutrition.

Yep. There’s grass-fed collagen in these dessert patties! If you don’t have collagen, you’re vegan, or you have no idea what a “collagen” is, no worries. Omit the collagen from the recipe and it will still be delicious. Because… collagen has no taste!

A couple of months ago, I ordered grass-fed gelatin on Amazon. Only, the grass-fed gelatin turned out to be grass-fed collagen hydrolysate. They look so similar, I totally got confused.

Gelatin congeals in water. Collagen Hydrolysate does not. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I tried to make gummies by adding collagen to hot tea and placing it in the fridge to set. No matter how long I left the darn things, they didn’t congeal.

I was pretty upset at first, until I realized just how awesome collagen is.

It’s like protein powder… but BETTER.

Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie Fudge-4089

Why I like collagen

Collagen is a protein found in the connective tissues of your body. (The protein found in the gelatin I introduced you to last week) It’s a form of fibrous protein that provides a supportive structure for our body tissues such as our muscles, bones and ligaments. As we age, we produce less and less collagen, leading to wrinkles and folds in our skin.

Using collagen hydrolysate may help with…

Strong bones + joints. It’s a source of proline and glycine, two building blocks of cartilage that are essential for refueling after exercise and sports.

Bright (wrinkle-free) skin. Boosts hydration, prevents deep wrinkles and maintains the health of skin.

Weight loss. Consists of 97% pure protein, keeping you full and satiated. You can use it as a replacement for protein powder!

Restful sleep. By stimulating growth hormone release.

What can you do with collagen?

Collagen Hydrolysate has virtually no taste, so you can add it to everything. Rocket Fuel Lattes, smoothies, tea, ice cream, soup, stews, everything.

My favorite way to enjoy it is blended in my daily rocket fuel latte. 2 tablespoons has 13 grams of easily accessible protein. Meaning, your body doesn’t have to work hard to grab the amino acids from the powder and get to work. SO much more versatile than protein powder.

Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie Fudge-4140

My favorite grass-fed collagen sources

Collagen1

Great Lakes Grass-fed Collagen: Available on Amazon (on the .com or .ca sites)

Collagen2

Bulletproof Upgraded Collagen: Delivery to US and Canada. Available on Upgraded Self.

Lets get our fat bomb on, yes?

A low-carb layered fat bomb dessert with a pumpkin base and a vanilla top. Option to add grass-fed collagen for boosted nutrition.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with two 12-count mini muffin silicon molds. Set aside.
  2. Add shredded coconut, coconut oil, stevia and salt to the bowl of your food processor. Process on high for 5-8 minutes until drippy. You may have to remove the lid a couple of times and scrape the chunky bits from the side of the bowl.
  3. Once smooth, remove ¼ cup of the coconut mixture, leaving the remaining coconut mix in the food processor bowl. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth again. If you use cold pumpkin puree, the coconut will harden. No worries, just process until smooth again.
  4. The texture of the pumpkin mixture will be similar to apple sauce.
  5. Scoop about 2 teaspoons into each muffin cup. Press down with fingers or the back of a spoon until completely flat. Then, top with reserved white coconut mixture. Transfer baking sheet to the freezer and freeze for 1 hour.
  6. Serve!
Notes
Serving Size and Nutrition: is based off 2 patties.
Coconut Butter: If you don’t have a food processor, you can get “creamed coconut” (which is coconut butter) in the Ethnic aisle of many grocery stores for a couple of dollars. Melt, then use in this recipe.

Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie Fudge-4146I weighed the shredded coconut because there are SO many styles of coconut out there and I wanted to make sure you all got the recipe bang on. Having said that, 200 grams is about 3 cups, give or take.

Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie Fudge-4088

Making the coconut butter for this recipe will save you loads of money. The storebought coconut butter is a bit expensive.

If you don’t have a food processor, you can get “creamed coconut” (which is coconut butter) in the Ethnic aisle of many grocery stores for a couple of dollars. Melt, then use in this recipe.

Dairy-free Pumpkin Pie Fudge-4092

Once your coconut butter is nice and drippy and you’ve reserved a bit of it for the tops, add the rest of the ingredients and whiz around!

Press the pumpkin mixture into the bottom of the silicon molds, follow with coconut mix.

Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread #grainfree #paleo #dairyfree #nutfree #lowcarb #ketoA low-carb biscuit recipe made with coconut flour. The only grain-free biscuit recipe on the interwebs that’s also nut-free and dairy-free. Perfect for Thanksgiving! This paleo-friendly recipe makes good bread, too.

Remember when I discovered that supplementing with hydrochloric acid cured acne? It was all the rage this summer. Turns out, the reason why it worked for so many of us, is that we all (well, most of us) have low stomach acid.

Low stomach acid is a silent problem. I didn’t know I had it. And, contrary to popular belief, acid reflux and heartburn doesn’t mean you have too much acid. In many cases, it’s that you don’t have enough. When we don’t have enough acid in our stomachs to break down the food we’re eating, undigested particles pass through the gut, and cause acne!

So, okay. Now, most of us are supplementing with hydrochloric acid to fix acne. A step beyond that is making it so that our body creates acids, all on its own… and HEALS itself from all the damage that’s been caused by not having the proper amount of acid secretion.

This is where grass-fed gelatin comes in.

Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread #grainfree #paleo #dairyfree #nutfree #lowcarb #keto

Wait, don’t leave me! I know what you’re thinking – ew, gelatin! I thought that, too. But I got over it when I learned just how powerful this stuff is. In fact, it’s so powerful (and awesome) that many of my vegan and vegetarian SPARK clients take it as a daily supplement.

5 reasons why I love grass-fed gelatin

For digestive awesomeness. Enhances gastric acid secretion and restores a healthy mucosal lining in the stomach – aka FIXING low stomach acid (and acne!)

For skin health. Think – killing cellulite, reducing wrinkles, banishing stretch marks…

For healthy muscles. It’s pure protein, providing a rich source of easily assimilated amino acids.

For reduced inflammation. Keeps joints inflammation, free. Meaning you can push harder at the gym and maximize performance!

For calmness and restful sleep. It’s an inhibitory neurotransmitter, meaning it promotes a calm, restful environment for your little (busy) mind.

What does this have to do with biscuits?

Everything. Because, instead of using digestive-harming gums (like xanthum gum and others) to hold these biscuits together, I used gelatin.

If you’re really dead-set against using grass-fed gelatin in these paleo, grain-free biscuits, I’ve included a couple of suggestions in the “notes” section of the recipe.

Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread #grainfree #paleo #dairyfree #nutfree #lowcarb #keto

the best Clean Gelatin options

If you’re interested in giving grass-fed gelatin a whirl, here are my top picks:

Vital Proteins Pasture-Raised Gelatin: even though it says “collagen”, it’s gelatin. Available on Amazon.

Great Lakes Grass-Fed Gelatin: I purchase this on the Amazon.ca site. Also available on Amazon.

A paleo, low-carb, nut-free biscuit recipe made with coconut flour. Held together with grass-fed gelatin to benefit the digestive system.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. To make biscuits, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. To make bread, lightly oil a 9x13 loaf pan with coconut oil, then drape all side with parchment paper for easy lifting. Set aside.
  4. Add eggs to the bowl of your stand mixer, bowl for a hand mixer, or blender. Whisk on medium-speed for 2 minutes, until frothy.
  5. Meanwhile, add coconut milk and gelatin to the bowl of your blender and blend on high, until smooth. About 20 seconds.
  6. If you used a stand mixer or hand mixer for the eggs, switch out the attachment to a paddle or beaters. Add in gelatin mixture, melted coconut oil, vinegar, and coconut nectar. Mix until just combined.
  7. In a separate bowl, mix sifted coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Turn the mixer back on and drop the flour mix into the egg mixture. Mix until combined.
  8. To make biscuits, scoop the dough using a ¼ cup measure, dropping the dough onto the baking sheet. Repeat, until 12 biscuits are made.
  9. To make bread, transfer dough to prepared bread pan. Press down with the back of a spoon and smooth out.
  10. For biscuits, bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until tops begin to brown.
  11. For bread, bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  12. Allow to cool completely, at least 2 hours.
  13. Makes one 9x13-inch loaf or 12 biscuits.
Notes
Coconut Nectar: Is used to allow the biscuits to puff up! You could use yacon syrup, if interested.
Grass-Fed Gelatin: If you do not wish to use gelatin in this recipe, you could try for an equal amount of ground flax seed.
Baking Soda: I used a gluten-free baking soda that requires 2x the amount of baking soda to work properly. If you use regular baking soda, be sure to reduce the amount by half. In this case, it would be ½ teaspoon for the full recipe.

Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread #grainfree #paleo #dairyfree #nutfree #lowcarb #keto

This is a one-bowl recipe. My favorite! I used full-fat coconut milk in this recipe because fat is best. I suppose you could use another form of dairy-free milk. Even homemade coconut milk may be nice!

Sifting the coconut flour after it’s measured will make your life a lot easier. It removes all the clumps.

Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread #grainfree #paleo #dairyfree #nutfree #lowcarb #keto

Spread the mixture into a loaf pan, or use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop the dough and plop onto a baking sheet. If you make a loaf of bread, it would be great as grain-free breadcrumb for grain-free stuffing.

Low-Carb Coconut Flour Biscuits or Bread #grainfree #paleo #dairyfree #nutfree #lowcarb #keto

The grass-fed gelatin does a fabulous job holding everything together. The trick is, you have to let the biscuits (or bread) cool completely before judging. Once cooled, the bread holds together like every other bread out there… but doesn’t contain yucky binders, or gluten!

Audio: How to Break the Binge Cycle (and stop overeating)

If you struggle with binge cycles or have become a “slave” to your eating style, today’s recorded Q&A session – where we discover how our eating habits are directly related to our self-worth, self-trust and self-love, is for you.

It’s easy to get lost in obsessing over the body and health we want for ourselves. For many of us, it’s hard to know where that line is: in doing what’s right for our body and our health, and getting too caught up with the “rules” that it begins to take over our lives.

Healthful Pursuit is about freeing ourselves by creating a liberated life on a “restricted” diet – it’s about accepting (and loving) where we are at right now, and taking balanced steps toward discovering what our bodies need to heal and thrive.

Positive transformation relies on building a base of love and respect for our bodies, regardless of the eating style we decide is right for us.

In today’s Q&A we explore,

  • How what we eat portrays our self worth, self love and self respect.
  • How our childhood eating patterns are limiting us in adulthood.
  • Using external and internal wisdom to create an eating style that’s perfect, for you.
  • The steps we can take to experiment with mindfulness as a way to understand our body and transform our relationship with food.

Studies that support Nadya’s message (1) (2) (3)

There is an intelligent principle that’s present in your entire body. It knows what it needs to be supported. Using a combination of external wisdom – like the resources you receive on Healthful Pursuit, and internal wisdom – the innate ability that your body has to know what it needs to thrive, you can experiment to create an eating style that’s best for you.

Since our Q&A, I’ve worked on feeling my emotions without involving my head and have to say… this practice is so powerful! It’s so much more fulfilling – to accept what I’m feeling and allow it to flow through me.

Try it – letting emotions flow through you without involving your head, just once. See how it feels. Then come back and share your experience with us!

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleoLow-carb chocolate pecan pie free from sugars and syrups. Entirely sugar-free, grain-free and dairy-free. You’ll never guess what (vegetable) I used in place of the sugars and syrups…

Thanksgiving! It’s coming (for many of you). I’m preparing something special, starting with this pie recipe and ending with an entire collection of everything you’ll need to celebrate a fat-fueled, grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free holiday… coming November 19.

Not celebrating Thanksgiving? You could use all of this for Christmas, too!

Last week, I asked you what fat-fueled recipes you wanted on your Thanksgiving table this year.

The most popular answer? A pumpkin-free dessert. So that’s where we’re starting!

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleo

Enter this paleo chocolate pecan pie. “Paleo” meaning that it’s free from gluten, grains, dairy and artificial gunk. But I went a step further than that because, well, that’s my jam.

This isn’t your average paleo pie. This pie has absolutely no sugar… and no sugar-free syrup either. Instead of using sugar to hold things together, I used zucchini.

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleo

Zucchini as the base of a healthy chocolate pecan pie filling? I’m not crazy. It works so well.

One thing, though. I used stevia to lightly sweeten this pie. If you haven’t found a brand of stevia that you enjoy, I really like this alcohol-free stevia from Now Foods. It’s the only one that I’ve found not to leave a nasty taste in my mouth after eating it.

That being said, if you do not like stevia, and have no interest in enjoying a sugar-free, paleo chocolate pecan pie this Thanksgiving, this recipe may not be for you. If you’re egg-free, this egg-free chocolate pecan pie from Chocolate Covered Katie may float your boat. And, if you are interested in using honey instead of stevia, this honey-sweetened chocolate pecan pie from My Humble Kitchen may be just the thing you’re looking for.

Still with me? Awesome. Chow down time!

The only thing you need to decide is: do you want pie or tarts? This recipe will make either, or. And they’re both delicious!

Low-carb chocolate pecan pie free from sugars and syrups. Entirely sugar-free, grain-free and dairy-free. Paleo almond flour pie crust and chocolate pecan pie filling made creamy with zucchini!
Ingredients
Grain-free, Paleo Pie Crust
Chocolate Pecan Pie Filling
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 3 oz. unsweetened dark chocolate squares (dairy-free), melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup finely shredded zucchini (255 grams freshly shredded, 195 grams once liquid has been wrung out)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon alcohol-free stevia
  • 150 grams raw pecan halves, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. For a 9” pie, lightly oil a 9-inch pie pan with coconut oil. Set aside.
  3. For 3” tarts, lightly oil six 3-inch circular tart pans with coconut oil. Set aside.
  4. To make crust, add almond flour, salt, coconut oil and egg to the bowl of your food processor. Process and pulse with the “S” blade until a ball forms, about 30 seconds. Transfer to prepared pie or tart pan. Press dough, pressing up the sides. Set aside.
  5. Before preparing the chocolate pecan pie filling, be sure to “wring out” shredded zucchini. To do this, place shredded zucchini in a clean cloth and wring out lightly. I’ve included the measurements of the wet and dry zucchini so you can see the difference.
  6. Add melted coconut oil, dark chocolate, eggs, zucchini, vanilla and stevia to the bowl of your food processor or high-powered blender. Process or blend on high until smooth, about 1 minute.
  7. Remove the processor bowl from the base and stir-in 75% of the pecans. If using a blender, transfer chocolate mixture to a clean bowl, then stir in 75% of the pecans.
  8. Drop the chocolate mix into the prepared pie or tart pan. Top with remaining pecans.
  9. For pie, bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, until top is set and sides become golden. Once complete, allow to cool overnight.
  10. For tarts, bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, until top is set and sides become golden. Once complete, allow to cool for 1-hour before removing from tart pan. Tarts can be consumed immediately, or chilled overnight.
  11. Serve with coconut whipped cream.
  12. Makes six 3-inch tarts or one 9-inch pie.
Notes
Chocolate baking squares: I purchased these at the grocery store, in the baking isle. They were "Unsweetened Dark Chocolate Baking Squares"

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleo

There are a lot of crazy pie techniques out there. This recipe has none of that. It’s as simple as they come, and I like that. If you have a food processor, everything happens in the one bowl. Easy clean up! If you don’t that’s okay.

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleo

The grain-free pie crust made with almond flour is super easy. Add to your food processor and process until the dough forms a ball. It will happen relatively quickly, so watch out!

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleo

Once complete, press into your pie pan or tart pan, whatever you’ve chosen. You don’t have to go too thick with the crust. It holds together really well when chilled. A ⅛-inch layer is perfect.

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleo

Shredded zucchini makes everything easier to process for a smoother result. Finely shred is best. And, you’ll want to squeeze out the additional liquid, as I mention in the recipe. This will make sure that your sugar-free pie bakes perfectly!

No Sugar! Paleo Chocolate Pecan Pie with ZUCCHINI #lowcarb #dairyfree #grainfree #keto #paleo

Add your chocolate pecan pie filling ingredients to the bowl of your food processor and process until smooth. Smooth, smooth! You don’t want any green bits leftover.

Stir in those pecans then transfer to your pie pan or tart pan and top with additional pecans. At this point? You’ll be AMAZED that this pie has no sugar… and is made creamy with zucchini. Just look at how perfect that is. Ah!

Bake, cool, top with coconut whipped cream. I use this recipe and simply omit the sugar, or replace with a couple of drops of stevia.

And dig in!

Using zucchini as a base for this pie has opened up a whole realm of recipe possibilities. My guess? Is that (with a bit of tweaking) we could use this same strategy in any corn syrup-based recipes with similar results. So… my question for you today is…

What corn syrup-based recipes have you struggled with making healthier or just avoided all together?

Audio: Nutritional Ketosis for Total Body Confidence #lowcarb #keto #paleo

A recorded Q&A session on nutritional ketosis – how a high-fat eating style encourages reduced body stress, healing, and boundless health. Weight loss, too!

Last week, a bunch of Healthful Pursuit readers and I got together (digitally) to chat about nutritional ketosis in celebration of my newest digital program, The Keto Beginning – a guide and 30-day meal plan on using healthy fats as our primary fuel.

Eating fats shouldn’t scare us anymore. Research has proven that using fat as our primary fuel is the way to go, long term. When cows are pending slaughter (we’re talking conventional processes here), they’re fed grains, to fatten them up. So why do we have it in our heads that this same grain-rich diet, promoted by government organizations, dieticians, nutritionists and health enthusiasts everywhere, promotes health in us?

Did you know? The carbohydrate-rich diet that we adopted in the mid-1980’s at the turn of the “food pyramid” has never been tested? It’s never been proven to work. Even says so IN the actual food guide. The USDA makes this statement in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines document: “The [USDA] food patterns were developed to meet nutrient needs . . . while not exceeding calorie requirements. Though they have not been specifically tested for health benefits they are similar to the DASH research diet and consistent with most of the measures of adherence to Mediterranean-type eating patterns (emphasis added).”

Um, what? So… we’re basically following a carbohydrate-rich, low-fat eating style… with NO scientific evidence that it actually benefits us.

Rocket Fuel Cafe Mocha with Chia Seeds #lowcarb #paleo #ketoPump up your daily coffee or tea ritual with a boost of chia. This Rocket Fuel Cafe Mocha is bursting with healthy fats for some serious mental clarity, the whole day through.

Each ingredient in this recipe plays a powerful role in the awesomeness of this blended coffee. Not a coffee lover? That’s okay! You can use tea instead – red tea, white tea, black tea, your pick!

I enjoy Rocket Fuel Blended Coffees (or tea) daily. Usually in the morning, before my first meal. Think of them like smoothies… but without the sugar. They’re highly satiating, packed with nutrients, and delicious.

… delicious always helps.

Rocket Fuel Cafe Mocha with Chia Seeds #lowcarb #paleo #keto

Rocket Fuel blends may be awesome for you if you…

lack energy // experience brain fog // drink smoothies in the morning but want a change // get stomach pains in the morning after breakfast // hit the 4pm wall everyday// like coffee // like tea // enjoy healthy fats // are interested in using fats to heal your body // have issues with blood sugar regulation // are addicted to caffeine and need a change // have attention issues // find it hard to concentrate // procrastinate // rely on caffeine to get you going and don’t want to anymore // have little time to prepare breakfast in the morning // want to optimize your eating style // enjoy feeling good….

There are 20+ different Rocket Fuel Blended Coffee (and tea!) recipes in my newest digital offering, The Keto Beginning: Complete Guide + 30-day Meal Plan.

Mental Clarity with Rocket Fuel Blended Coffee

Claire is a Holistic Nutritionist (like me!) is an HP reader and swears by my Rocket Fuel Blended Coffee recipes.

Claire2“I could quite possibly be coffee’s biggest fan. But my calling for caffeine was getting out-of-control.  Before I discovered Leanne’s Rocket Fuel Blended Coffee in The Keto Beginning, 2-3 cups of coffee were the norm. That dependable buzz would inevitably be followed by a day-changing crash. Now, I thrive with 1 Rocket Fuel Blended Coffee per day. I’m talkin’ mental clarity, a feeling of fullness and zero desire for more caffeine.  It’s a total game-changer for all those looking to step up their morning routine.”

Notes
I almost prefer when the stevia is added after the coffee is blended. To do this, omit from the blending process and add to your cup, before pouring in the coffee. Give everything a good stir and enjoy.

All of the ingredients I’ve used in today’s recipe have a specific purpose and are very easy to find! In fact, most of them can be found at Costco or Superstore. Nothing fancy.

Rocket Fuel Cafe Mocha with Chia Seeds #lowcarb #paleo #keto

I grind my coffee fresh, every day. I usually opt for decaf Bulletproof coffee in my Rocket Fuel Blended Coffees. It’s the only decaf I can drink without feeling lethargic afterward. It’s clean and still gives me loads of energy with all of the extra awesome ingredients.

Aroy-D makes a fabulous preservative-free coconut milk that’s thick, creamy and just 2 ingredients: coconut and water. If you can handle dairy, using grass-fed, organic cream could be an option for you. Adding the coconut milk to this recipe makes it really foamy. I purchase my coconut milk at Superstore.

You can use MCT oil or coconut oil in this recipe, whatever tickles your fancy. If you’re sensitive to coconut, you could try red palm oil or avocado oil, too.

It has a pure flavor, no alochol or metal aftertaste. They recently switched from a glass dropper bottle to a capped plastic bottle. While I like glass better, the plastic cap is way less messier.

Chia seeds! In coffee, crazy, right? They are pulverized and add to the frothy goodness of this dairy-free blended coffee recipe. Fiber, omegas, oh my!

Crazy Good Low-carb Pancakes (made with pork rinds!) - no sugar, grains, dairy or flourA 5-ingredient, low-carbohydrate pancake recipe that’s flour-free, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, nut-free and dairy-free. No coconut flour, either! Enjoy stacked up on a cute plate and slathered with your favorite healthy pancake toppings.

Kevin and I met 6 years ago, October 24. Our relationship developed week over week and year over year, surrounded by pancakes. True story. When we first started “courting” Kevin brought the oranges, I made the pancakes, and we drank fresh juice, drizzle syrup on our pancakes and got to know each more and more.

Kevin and I go with pancakes like cookies go with chocolate chips. It’s just not the same without ‘em.

The cool part is that; all the while eating pancakes, my eating style has transitioned from vegan to gluten-free, to grain-free, to paleo, to keto in the last 6 years. With each transition, I created a new pancake recipe that we could enjoy together.

Crazy Good Low-carb Pancakes (made with pork rinds!) - no sugar, grains, dairy or flour

There were oil-free pancakes, protein pancakes, sugar-free pancakes, even dairy-free pancakes as big as your face.

6 year anniversary, new pancake recipe. I love this pancake recipe so much, that I added it to my nutritional ketosis beginner's guide, The Keto Beginning.

These low-carb pancakes are all of the above, and then some. NO gluten, grains, sugar, dairy, nuts or flours. You’re probably wondering, “What the heck IS in these low-carb pancakes, then?”

Crazy Good Low-carb Pancakes (made with pork rinds!) - no sugar, grains, dairy or flour

Pork rinds (aka chicharrones). Yes. And before you get all like Kevin did and doubt my sanity, hear me out: they’re delicious. I’m flatout guaranteeing that you will love these low-carb, protein-packed pancakes. Kevin did. I did (and still do, I’ve been making them for myself more than once a week.)

Pork rinds are fried and salted pork skins. They’re high in fat and protein, and are a delicious flour-free alternative for keto-friendly, low-carb baking. Pork rinds also make a great snack when you’re on the go; airports, road trips, and need a high-fat snack.

I don’t eat store-bought pork rinds all too often because I’m not sure of the quality of the fat they’re fried in. I do enjoy Baken-ets by Frito Lay for recipes because they’re not as sodium-rich as the other flavors. For snacking, Old Dutch Bac’N Puffs are good.

You can also make your own pork rinds. All Day I Dream Of Food has a fabulous recipe for homemade pork rinds that you should check out.

Wow, I’m talking pork rinds on the blog right now. I remember seeing pork rinds on the shelf of our local grocery store and swearing I would never eat the things. Funny how life changes. Gotta roll with it… aaaaand make pancakes.

leb-TheKetoBeginning-728x90.05

For real, please try these. I swear I’m not losing it. These are CRAZY good. The recipe is taken directly from my new book, The Keto Beginning.

These pancakes are part of the meal plan in week 4, page 111 for those with a copy of the book.

Recipe type: Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Yeast-free, Corn-free, Grain-free, Nut-free
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
 
A low-carbohydrate pancake recipe that's flour-free, grain-free, sugar-free and dairy-free. Made with ground pork rinds. Recipe from The Keto Beginning.
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. If you have a spice grinder, use it to grind the pork rinds. If you do not, add the rinds to a ziploc bag and crush with a can or rolling pin until it’s a fine powder. Pork rinds are pretty oily, so the flour will be wetter than “flour”. Set aside.
  2. Whisk eggs, coconut milk and stevia in a medium-sized bowl. Add in pork rind flour and ground cinnamon.
  3. Whisk to combine, until smooth. Set aside to thicken.
  4. Place a nonstick frying pan on the stove, set to medium-low heat. Add half the coconut oil and melt. Once melted, drop half of the batter into the pan, spreading it with the back of a spoon to shape.
  5. Cook 1-2 minutes per side, fry until browned.
  6. Transfer to a clean plate, add coconut oil to the pan, melt, and cook remaining batter. Top with nut butter and enjoy!
  7. Makes 2 pancakes, 1 serving.
Notes
Pork rinds: Look for pork rinds with lower sodium so that the pancakes aren’t too salty.
Nut butter: I used 3-way Love Butter for the topping. Coconut Creme would be really good, too!
Nutrition information: is without nut butter, so you can choose your own and add it up, if you need it!

The Keto Beginning: Complete Guide + 30-day Meal Plan for Whole Food-Based Ketosis

The complete guide & 30-day meal plan to create lifelong health and lasting weight loss with whole food-based nutritional ketosis – a launch pad for creating a healthy + hot body… for life.

When I started developing a whole food-based ketogenic eating style for myself, I went in with 0 expectations. I dared to do something different from anything I’d ever done. It was scary, terrifying even, but it paid off, fast.

In 30 days (my 30-day progress below), I experienced radically reduced weight, freedom from sugar cravings and healthy hormones. What’s more, is that YOU, a brilliant community of thousands of women, were cheering me on from the sidelines, genuinely interested in using whole food-based ketosis to influence their lives, too.

Results3

Originally, I had no intention of sharing this journey with you… but I’ve seen too many good things come from it that keeping it to myself didn’t seem right. So, after months of recipe testing, meal plan creation and research, I’m proud to introduce you to my newest digital program, The Keto Beginning: Complete Guide + 30-day Meal Plan.

When what you’re doing isn’t working, The Keto Beginning is the rocket fuel for achieving flawless health and effortless weight loss through sound nutrition practices and vibrant food preparation in ways you’ve never seen before.

The Keto Beginning offers a unique guidance system to attaining total body confidence, regulated metabolism, and liberated health without the need to radically reduce (or even count) calories.

Cover-iPad_KetoBeginning-MediumWith The Keto Beginning, you’ll be shown how to use whole food-based nutritional ketosis to…

  • Reach your perfect weight without feeling restricted or deprived.
  • Gain the power to end food obsession + strict eating schedules.
  • Maintain steady energy, without relying on constant feeding.
  • Boost self-worth, self-respect, self-trust and self-love.

17 chapters, 147 pages + over 70 high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein, dairy-, gluten-, sugar-, grain-, soy-, legume-free recipes – this is the lifestyle change that empowers your body + mind to achieve the state of health you’ve been searching for.

If you want to take charge of your health in a new way, start by being open to the idea that what you think you know about health and nutrition is upside down, backwards and inside out. Nutritional ketosis; achieved by following a high-fat, low-carbohydrate, moderate-protein eating style, is a powerful, convenient, motivating approach to radically improving health. The transformation requires that we overcome a handful of age-old beliefs claiming health is achieved when dietary fat is restricted and carbohydrates; even “healthy whole grains”, are used as fuel. It is clear; through the results of many recent medical studies, that how we look at dietary fat and carbohydrates with respect to macronutrient uptake, energy production and the key to living a healthy life, is grossly inaccurate.

Get your copy of The Keto Beginning today and start looking at nutrition in a new way.

The journey toward your hottest self begins by accepting that what you’re doing (and eating) may not be working for you anymore.

Venturing from the eating style box you’ve squished yourself into sets you on a new path, where you’re primed and ready to make things happen.
