What is the Keto Diet?

keto crackers

INGREDIENTS

 

For the Cake

  • 125 g egg whites

  • 112 g powdered erythritol/stevia blend, divided

  • 112 g almond flour

  • 3 g pure almond extract        

  • For the Pumpkin Filling

  • 260 g cream cheese softened but cool

  • 60 g salted butter, softened

  • 50 g powdered erythritol/stevia blend

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla bean paste

  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice

  • 170 g pumpkin puree 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

For the Cake

1. Preheat oven to 400F.

2. In a mixing bowl, add egg whites and 56 g sweetener.

3. Using a whisk attachment, whip to medium-stiff peaks. Stop when the meringue holds its shape.

4. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining 56 g sweetener, almond flour, and flavoring.

5. Whisk to combine until homogenous.

6. In three additions, gently fold the dry mixture into the egg whites. Use the biggest rubber spatula you have, this ensures less frequent folding thus keeping the air in the sponge intact.

7. Evenly spread the batter on a grease and parchment (or baking foil) lined quarter sheet tray, approx 9” X 13” jelly roll pan.

8. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Invert onto a parchment-lined wire rack to cool.

 

For the Pumpkin Filling

1. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.

2. Add the sweetener. Continue until fluffy and light.

3. Add vanilla paste and pumpkin spice. Beat until well incorporated.

4. In two intervals, add the pumpkin puree, scraping the bowl in between addition.

5. Add the butter and beat until the mixture comes together. Your filling should be smooth and light. Adjust the sweetness with some liquid stevia, to taste.

6. Refrigerate until ready to use. Make sure to re-whip (by hand is fine) until fluffy before using.

 Assembly

1. Evenly spread the filling over the sponge.

2. Gently roll to form into a log, using the parchment to lift the cake. I find that rolling the cake from the shorter side yields a thicker roll and less cracking. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

There are many keto-friendly snacks to choose from, including nuts, seeds, cheese, avocados, and hard-boiled eggs. These snacks are high in fat and protein, which will help keep you feeling full.
