Creating low carb treats has become a fun pastime of mine. I am fortunate, that my family encourages me in this endeavor. The smell of yet another treat baking in the oven perfumes the house like nothing else.

It is my hope that the every day things I do for my family create wonderful memories. I still remember coming home after school to my mom’s baked cookies and it warms my heart.  I believe memories like these stay with us for a long time because it comes from a place of love.

Are you creating new memories for your family you hope will stay with them? If so what are they? Take the time to live intentional, even in the busyness of your day to day schedule. Make each moment count.

It’s so easy to be caught up with what we want to do in the future that we sometimes miss the opportunity to live in the moment.  So go create a moment for you and your family and bask in it.

2 ½ cups of almond flour

1 cup of plain whey protein

¼ cup of unsweetened dark cocoa powder

2 teaspoons of instant expresso powder

3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream

2 sticks of softened butter

1 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened

4 eggs

1 tablespoon of baking powder

½ teaspoon of salt

3 cups of sugar substitute

    Hi I am new to your site but I am falling in love with it. I absolutely love the inspirational pages!!!

      Hi Christy so glad you are encouraged by our site. Every oven is different but how about you cover with foil and then bake at 250 degrees for another 20 minutes or so. That would do the trick 😜💕🙌🏻
