KETO NUT CLUSTERS – Only 3 Ingredients
The recipe for Keto Nut Clusters couldn’t be easier. It only needs 3 ingredients and it fulfills that craving for rich, dark chocolate! It’s a wonderful combination of crunchy, salty and sweet.
I used a nut mixture that didn’t have cashews because they are high in carbs. It’s Keto, Low Carb, Gluten-free and Vegetarian. Each large nut cluster has only 2.6 net carbs!

In a deep pan, heat 2 cups of water to a low simmer.
Create a double boiler by putting a bowl over the water.
Melt both package of baking chips in the bowl.
As the chocolate melts, make sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl often
so it doesn’t burn.
Remove the bowl from the heat.
Once chocolate is smooth, add the nuts and stir until it’s covered.
Cover a large jelly pan with wax paper.
Use 2 large tablespoons to make 20 – 24 nut clusters.
Cool in the fridge (or on a covered porch if it’s cold).
Store in a covered container in a cool place.

SPICED PUMPKIN CUSTRD -NO Crust KETO Dessert
This Spiced Pumpkin Custard is an easy Keto holiday dessert that is Low Carb, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and vegetarian.
1 large pastured egg
½ can or 7.5 oz. of organic pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling, which has sugar in it)
¼ c. Elmhurst unsweetened almond milk: https://amzn.to/3jUczf7
¼ c. Swerve brown sugar sweetener * : https://amzn.to/2RH5rIT (bundle)
½ tsp. vanilla extract: https://amzn.to/3eCp3H6
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. ginger
¼ tsp. nutmeg
1/3 c. Heavy whipping cream(or coconut cream)
A few drops of liquid Stevia or monk fruit
Preheat oven to 350°F. Put the first 8 ingredients into a tall container. Use an immersion blender with the blade attachment, a blender or a mixer and thoroughly mix for 1 minute until it’s well blended and frothy.
Pour into 4 ramekins that have been placed inside a large pan. Add 1 inch of cold water. Put into a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or so. Use a toothpick to check if it’s cooked through – it should come out clean when inserted into the center.
Let cool. If you want to add the whipped topping (which makes it even more delish), add the liquid sweetener to the cream and whip until you have soft peaks. Put on top of the cooled custard and then sprinkle with pecans.
