A keto fat bomb dessert. Keto 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 keto 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 this keto recipe and it will still be delicious. Because… collagen has no taste!

I'm ready!

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

Gelatin congeals in water. Collagen peptides do not. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I tried to make keto 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 and keto-friendly collagen is.

It’s like keto protein powder… but BETTER.

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 keto-tastic collagen peptides 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, keto-friendly 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 peptides have virtually no taste, so you can add it to everything. Keto Rocket Fuel Lattes, keto smoothies, keto tea, keto ice cream, keto soup, keto stews, everything.

My favorite way to enjoy it is blended in my daily keto rocket fuel latte. 2 tablespoons have 15 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.

A keto, low-carb layered fat bomb dessert with a pumpkin base and a vanilla top. Option to add grass-fed collagen for boosted nutrition.
  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. Divide the pumpkin mixture into the muffin cups. 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!
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 ¾ cup - 1 cup in this recipe.

I 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.

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

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!
