Blogmas #16: Top 3 Christmas Baking Ideas

As previously stated, I love baking. I’m not terribly good at it but I try my best to bake a decent-looking cake or cookies that taste good, too! Even though I’ve been bulking for the past few months, I still prefer low-carb or at least sugar-free sweets. Below you can find some healthified recipes that should satisfy your sweet tooth!

Disclaimer: these recipes were not written by me, I’m just sharing them!

1. Brownie Cake

I’ve found this recipe on Maxximum.si and I baked the cake as soon as possible. Here’s the recipe:

6 eggs
150 g unsalted butter
125 g dark chocolate
6 tbsp Sukrin
6 tbsp ground almonds

Melt the butter and chocolate in a bain-marie, and let it cool down slightly.

Mix together the yolks and Sukrin, then add to the melted butter and chocolate.

Add ground almonds and fluffed-up egg whites.

Bake for 25 minutes at 185 °C.

Top with whatever your heart desires: melted chocolate, whipped cream, sugar-free syrup etc.

It’s super easy and super tasty. Done in a microwave so it really is fuss-free. Thanks Ruled.me for sharing the recipe!

1 egg
2 tbsp salted butter
2 tbsp almond flour
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tbsp Sukrin
2 tsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder

Melt the butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds until melted.

Add all the remaining ingredients, and mix until smooth and lump-free.

Microwave for about 65 seconds, top with whipped cream, and enjoy your cake!

3. Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am always on the lookout for a nice cookie recipe, and Elana’s chocolate chip cookies check all the boxes: gluten-free, grain-free, and simple to make. To be honest, I haven’t fully plunged into a paleo diet but these seem like a good introduction! 😀

2 cups almond flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup salted butter
1 tbsp vanilla extract
½ cup maple syrup
½ cup chocolate chips

In a food processor, combine the dry ingredients.

Pulse in the wet ingredients until dough forms.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough onto a baking tray and bake for about 8 minutes at 175 °C.
