Keto Low Carb Turtles

KETO LOW CARB TURTLES

Recipe by: Jenn Jonkman of Hale Holistics

ABOUT THIS RECIPE

My low carb turtle recipe is an experiment that I had to try after finding some amazing sugar free caramel at a specialty grocery shop.

Now, this is a big deal. First, a traditional caramel recipe is literally made with sugar. Cutting out sugar is a big deal for a Keto diet to work. In fact, cutting out sugar should be a big deal in life. In the commitments that I made to get my high-energy child off of sugar, or at least way lower amounts, I found a magical specialty grocery shop that had the magic ingredient. When I landed on this sugar free caramel that you could literally eat off of a spoon, I had to start my experiment. This recipe is the result of that experiment.

Enjoy!

Keto Chocolate Ganache Torte

KETO CHOCOLATE GANACHE TORTE

Recipe by: Jenn Jonkman of Hale Holistics

ABOUT THIS RECIPE

First and foremost, I’m a foodie and deserts are my thing! I’m also a pretty skilled chef. I did get to audition for MasterChef Canada twice. Although I didn't make the cut it was probably for the best, as are most life lessons. Imagine how out of shape I'd be if I was famous? Daydreams aside, this chocolate ganache torte is a MUST have for any chocoholic!

This recipe features Krisda brand chocolate chips, and is the next level delicious! Other keto chocolate chips don't come close to offering the creamy velvet like texture. It is true what they say, even in Keto. You can have your cake and eat it too!
