  • 1.5 tsp (7ml) vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon (or cardamom)

  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp (125g) keto bulk sweetener (powdered erythritol, Swerve, allulose, tagatose, etc.)

  • 3/4 tsp fine sea salt (double the amount for coarse salt)

  • 5 large (55g each) eggs (always go with free-range / pastured eggs, "cage-free" is not the same!)

  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp (100g) superfine almond flour

  • 1.5 Tbsp (18g) coconut flour (OR oat fiber)

NOTE ON KETO SWEETENER SWAPS:

As of 2019, it seems that allulose is not easily available outside of the USA, so try tagatose (almost identical to allulose) which is available on iHerb in most countries, linked below!

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 325F / 163C if you're making a loaf cake, OR 350F / 180C for muffins, and prep your baking pan with either parchment paper (or muffin liners), or by greasing it and dusting with a thin layer of coconut flour (or oat fiber).

2. Mix together the soft butter, keto sweetener, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt until well combined. Next mix in the eggs gradually.

3. Either in a separate bowl or by placing a sieve over the main mixing bowl, sift the remaining dry ingredients and mix well into the wet ingredients. Lastly, mix in the grated zucchini using a spoon or spatula (NOT a whisk). Pour into your prepared baking pan or divide evenly between 10 muffin liners, then bake for 35-45 minutes for a loaf cake, or for 15-20 minutes for muffins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT TPH

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
